Churches / Plants

Mission Churches, Plants, Indigenous Churches

Please note that in this context, the term "mission churches" refers more specifically to a "sending" and "evangelistic"-type church planting work, compared to how the same term is used in the "churches" section of this site. There is of course overlap, and all of our churches do seek to be "missional."
