The network hosts various retreats for church planters and mission leaders to come together to share ideas on specific church planting topics.  We recently hosted a retreat with The Gate in Ankeny, IA from May 26th – May 28th.  We are also planning a retreat for early next year in Niagara Falls, NY with Barefoot Christian Community.  Please stay tuned for more details.

Connect with other Church Planters as we visit with Barefoot Christian Church, a new church plant in Niagra Falls, NY from  January 26th-28th.  We’ll spend time hearing from the Barefoot Christian Church launch team on what they’ve tried, lessons they have learned, and challenges they have faced along the way.  


Our time together will begin on January 26th with dinner at 6pm followed by an opportunity to meet up and get to know the other church planters in attendance.  On the 27th we will spend the morning learning from Barefoot Christian Church.  The afternoon will be spent with time for each of the attendees to chart our some plans for their own ministry and receive feedback from others.  The morning of the 28th will consist of worship with Barefoot Christian Church followed by a brunch.  After brunch you can choose to hang out in the Niagara Falls area, meet up with some of the other planters or head back home.


To register we ask that you reach out to Pat Williams or Eric Wenger to let them know no later than January 15th.  Please send us the name of each person attending, the church/church plant you represent, and each person’s ministry role. You can also submit this info via the Contact Us page.
