Plant1000 is a bold and unprecedented vision of collaboration in church planting. The North American Division, General Conference, Conferences, and Unions will partner with our local churches and invest to help fund 1000 community churches from 2016 to 2020. Envision 200 Community Church Plants, each year, for the next five years. There are many neighborhoods, towns, and counties in North America that still don't have access to the good news of Jesus. There are peoples groups in our Division which are still mostly unreached. These new community church plants will put the gospel within their reach.
Support and Funding for Conferences: we are praying and have set aside funding to support all of our Conferences with more than 15,000 members to take a step of faith and plant 4 churches every year for the next five years.
