st. louis residency

The vision of the residency is to help the local church plant churches in the St. Louis metropolitan area and beyond. We seek to do this two ways.  First, it is to assist the church and it’s pastor in the development of the man in their church who feels called to plant.  Second, we want to provide an opportunity and environment for the God

THE PURPOSE

The purpose of this residency is to provide a gospel rich environment of leaders and learning that will help prepare a man and his wife to plant a gospel-centered, God glorifying church planting church. This environment will be an intense time of preparation for the church planter that focuses on learning and preparing to plant through study, relationships, and practice.

2 GROUPS TOGETHER

The foundation of the St. Louis Residency was born from a partnership between two groups, Plant St Louis (the church planting arm of the St. Louis Metro Baptist Association) and Acts29 Midwest. These groups have common beliefs and a common mission and have joined together for the purpose of planting church planting churches across the St. Louis region and beyond.

 

WHO IS IT FOR

Men in the residency are those who fully expect to serve as the lead pastor in a church plant within the next 1-2 years. The residency is not designed for those who are only interested or considering planting, but for those men that express a clear call from God to plant and this calling has been affirmed by their pastor and peers.  The resident is a man who is a part of a local church but he is working on and toward his church plant while being a part of his church.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT

You can expect to learn, grow and be stretched.  The residency meets together every other week for approximately 3.5 hours.  You will learn in three ways.  One, you will learn through the reading of a solid curriculum in areas related to preaching, leadership, fundraising and theology.  You will learn from a man who has actually planted a church that will be leading the discussion each time the residency meets.  And you will learn from the other men like you who are a part of the residency.

 

WHERE & WHEN

The residency will be meeting at The Groves Church in Webster Groves, MO on Tuesday evenings at 6:00pm.  The 2017 term begins January 17.

"The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field."
Luke 10:2

UMSL_MSC.png

With more than 100,000 college students in the St. Louis Metro area, we believe that the harvest is truly plentiful and the laborers are truly few for collegiate ministry. Plant St. Louis partners with churches who feel a call to reach students at nearby campuses to provide training, relational connections on campus, and further support to see the lost reached and Christian students empowered to share the Gospel with their friends, classmates, faculty, and staff.

We long to see every people group on every campus in the St. Louis Metro area connected to a Gospel-proclaiming church in our network for the making of disciples, the redemption of our university campuses, and the sending of missionaries to reach our neighborhoods and the ends of the earth with the Gospel.
