This custom version of the Church Planter Profiles website has been created as a partnership between CityReach Network and Gateway Leadership Initiative to help potential planters discover their aptitude and readiness for church planting quickly and easily in an online environment.

CityReach Network

CityReach Network plants and develops LIFE-GIVING Churches by using unlikely people in overlooked places for extraordinary things. CityReach specializes in ‘cluster planting’ where multiple churches are launched in different areas on the on the same day. Our process, assessments, and strategies enable multiplication to take place more effectively and efficiently.

Every time we begin the journey with a planter we . . .

  • Assess the planter to see both their calling and skill set.
  • Evaluate the planter to see if they fit within the CityReach Culture.
  • Research the planters credit history and criminal background.
  • Agree that God has called us to work together by signing an MOU that clearly defines the expectations of both the network and the planter.
  • Train the planter through our 9-12 month Cohort of learning.
  • Launch the church that is focused towards reaching lost people through compassion, love, and the message of hope through Jesus Christ.
  • Sustain each new church by providing Regional Support through seasoned church planting mentors in addition to our back office support for each new church that includes Accounting, Legal, and Marketing Services for the lifetime of the church.

Next Steps:

Once this is accomplished, we meet with the planter to build a Church Planting Strategy where they will work together with 20+ planters through an 88 step process and a 9-12 month timeline where they will be part of a learning community with the same goal of launching a church all on the same day.  This concept has been created and modeled within the CityReach Network and Reach North East as a highly successful and sustainable way of planting life giving churches.  Once they begin this process, we will also assess which of our partners are a good fit for the planter to partner with.
