Training for Planters

New Church Development is putting in place two programs to help recruit and train prospective planters and coach current planters:

1.) Formal coaching through veteran church planter and Lindsey Wilson Assistant Professor of Religion David Calhoun. Dr. Calhoun is overseeing the Missional Academy Coaching Community (MACC), which is launching in early 2018. For information on how to register, contact Dr. Calhoun at or email or call the NCD office at (502) 425-3884

2.) A church-planting training academy for prospective planters will be implemented in 2018. Contact the NCD office for information about this exciting new program for both prospective and new planters.
