Building up missionaries and leaders to fulfill the Great Commission.

Many pastors don’t receive the discipleship they need after they leave seminary. But discipleship is crucial to helping you lead your congregation – and Baptist Church Planters can help you get equipped.

Explore Discipleship Opportunities

The Leadership Journey is a year-long mentorship experience that includes weekly meetings and one weekend retreat. This training is designed to equip leaders who can go out and equip other leaders in gospel ministry.

“The Leadership Journey training has had a profound impact on my life. I have not only gained a whole new outlook of what I am supposed to be and why, but also the practical “how-to’s” of how to live it. It’s truly been a transformation of thinking and doing.”

Brad Fincham, Assistant Pastor of Ankeny Baptist Church in Ankeny, IA

“Spiritual Disciplines book is great! It makes you realize the work involved in the Christian life. The course work goes hand in hand and drives you to implement what you’ve read. The participants encourage and challenge you. All this has worked to show me how to see and accomplish goals in my Christian walk and how to more effectively lead a small group study.”

Chris Largent – Walnut Park Baptist Church, Muscatine, IA

  • Growth in understanding conversion and Christian living that is truly by faith through grace and includes genuine repentance
  • Focused, passionate prayer for holiness, discipleship, and multiplication by groups of people at church
  • Ongoing and obvious life change that the believer credits to the church’s clear expositional preaching and teaching
  • A clear, biblical peacemaking process used between members regularly
  • Biblical church discipline process implemented and used effectively
  • A full complement of trained leaders serving as elders and deacons with several more qualified in the wings
  • 80% of adult members pursuing the “one another” commands as seen in their care for each other
  • 75% of adult members spend regular solo time with God 5 days a week
  • 50% of adult members have shared the complete gospel in the last 12 months
  • 50% of adult members are intentionally and regularly discipling someone
  • 10% of current church membership added to the church through adult belief and baptism in the last 5 years
  • Someone discipled by the church sent into full-time ministry within the last 5 years

Major transitions can feel overwhelming.

Helping churches transition through consultation, assessment, and placement

If your church is experiencing significant change due to pastoral departures, leadership failure, or other issues, you do not need to struggle alone.

Our Intentional Transition Ministries (ITM) have helped churches make tough decisions and supported the placement of Intentional Interim Pastors where needed.
