Church Planting

Are you looking to see a CREC in your area? Use this page to learn about church planting activity and other people looking to work with you.

The CREC is a relatively non-centralized communion. As a result, we do not have (for example) a mission board establishing church plants.

Instead, our member churches are encouraged to engage in church planting through initiating activities and developing contacts in new areas.

We also encourage those desiring a CREC plant in their area to contact us to request inclusion on this page, so they can work with others to develop a local CREC presence. If you would like to be added to this list, send an e-mail to the Presiding Minister and provide your contact information.

NOTE: This Bulletin Board is provided as a means to facilitate communication and given its character should not be interpreted as an automatic endorsement by the CREC.
