Welcome to Church Planting Network

There is an incredible and exciting movement in the body of Christ these days. God is using His church to move dramatically into the world with the heart of Jesus to "seek and save those who are lost." God's people are connecting and working together in order to reach out to the millions of people who do not know Jesus to be the Savior of all.

This site will highlight the growing community of Church Planting Networks throughout the Texas District. Read about them. Communicate with them. Encourage them in your prayers and consider joining them in your ministry. You may even want to begin your own church planting network where you live.

People from foreign lands and people from right across the street are learning to love Jesus through the work of such efforts. Each of these organizations has a passion for people to know Christ.


FiveTwo is a "How to" Church Planting Network based in the Houston area, but connected with church planters around the nation and the world.  In addition to web-based resources and training, FiveTwo will be coordinating gatherings for church planters.
