The Well Community Church


Church Planter

Church Planter Track is an intensive program aimed at preparing biblically qualified men who have an affirmed calling to plant biblically faithful, gospel-centered churches that are committed to planting other biblically faithful, gospel-centered churches. Our goal is to come around these men and help train, resource and equip them before they launch. Our training is focused on ten key competencies we have identified as needed for church-planters: Calling & Gifting, Gospel-Centeredness, Theology, Leadership, Vision, Preaching & Teaching, Marriage & Family, Disciple-Making, Mission and Personal Health.

Following a very robust assessment, we will design an individualized custom track aimed at shoring up weaknesses and further developing core strengths. This custom-designed training can span anywhere from 1-3 years and require a minimum 20-hour commitment each week (all based on the assessment). Financial assistance is available on a limited basis via application.

Opportunities generally include:

  • Embedding on Well staff
  • Collaborating with one of our partner church plants
  • Walking through a pastoral cohort with other church-planting Residents
  • Pastoral mentoring
  • Marriage mentoring
  • Classroom education
  • On-the-job experience
