The LCMC Mission Team for Church Planting consists of:

A Catalyst for Movements of Reproducing Churches

When it comes to “doing church,” most congregations in the United States are perfectly designed to achieve what they are currently achieving--- a mundane membership mentality that is working for less and less people.  The biblical mandate, however, is to make marvelous missionaries that multiply an incarnational Jesus-impact in the daily marketplace.  Therefore, the church must recapture its missionary identity and activate every Jesus-follower to engage wholeheartedly in the on-going mission of God to transform the world…

…and that, is why LCMC is planting churches!

We believe a maturing obedience to Jesus’ Great Commission will revitalize believers to focus on making disciples that make more disciples, resulting in planting churches that plant more churches!

Hi!  I’m Dan Clites, LCMC Coordinator for Church Planting Development.  I believe church planting is one of the very best strategies of evangelism.  When done in the power of the Holy Spirit with God’s love for people, church planting creates a natural culture of revitalized multiplication where lives are changed and cities are transformed!

If you believe the Lord has wired and called you to the difficult, but greatly rewarding, life of church planting and starting new ministries, then please read through all the church planting pages on this website and consider contacting me for more information and/or coaching consultation.
