CHURCH PLANTING AND REVITALIZATION

The EPC Church Planting and Revitalization Committee coordinates, encourages, and provides resources for the church planting, evangelism, church development, and church revitalization efforts of local churches and presbyteries; resources presbytery church development leaders in church planting, evangelism, and congregational development; and approves and oversees home missionaries.

STRATEGIES

When the former National Outreach Committee undertook an extensive analysis of the needs of the church throughout the EPC, two significant strategies emerged:

Church Planting—To equip and empower people to plant churches and effectively fulfill the Great Commission.
Church Revitalization—To provide presbyteries and churches the necessary resources to positively impact church vitality.

These are now two of the four strategic initiatives (along with Global Movement and Effective Biblical Leadership) that guide the work of the EPC. For more information, email the Office of the General Assembly or call 407-930-4239.
