Church Planter and Wives Gathering

April 29, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pm


You’re invited to the Church Planters and Wives Gathering!

*Part of the Sending Church Partnership Weekend

Featuring speakers/breakout leader Jeff and Laura Christopherson
*Jeff serves as the Vice President, North American Mission Board



This is a statewide gathering of all church planters and their wives!  This is for current church planters in serving in BCNY (New York, southwest Connecticut or Northern New Jersey) and potential church planters interested in finding out more about church planting.   This event is also being designed for wives to connect with each other, and have time to spend time with Laura Christopherson in breakouts designed to encourage and help them.

The day will be designed to hear all of what God is doing throughout the many places in our states, and give all of us time to connect and talk and enjoy each other.  Plus, we will:

  • Network with nearly 100 planters and their wives who are planting churches in the Tri-State area
  • Be encouraged and challenged by North American Mission Board  Vice President Jeff Christopherson on Kingdom First principles
  • Meet and network with potential Sending, Supporting and Partner church Pastor’s/Key Leaders who will be in attendance and want to talk with you and hear about your city/location.
  • Have time to talk with and learn from other church planters and church players wives on ministry, family life, and best practices in ministry.
  • Receive a free gift for couples and some resources that will help you grow and enhance your effectiveness in ministry
  • Have an opportunity to talk with the city coordinator and Church planting Director, as well as catalysts throughout the region
  • Enjoy great food and free child care for the day to allow you to relax and have some fun together! (Requires pre-registration)
