Multiply Churches

The Church Planting Support Ministry (Multiply Churches) exists to provide church plants with assistance in vital areas of church planting to establish and prepare the church plant for successful ministry in its community. The opportunities are wide-ranging and ever-expanding. From childcare assistance to building maintenance and improvements to community service projects, you can help give a church plant vital assistance and still be involved in the life of Immanuel Church of Nashville.

Objectives

Our objectives are to create structures and systems to prepare and mobilize members within Immanuel Nashville to serve and assist local church plants.

Mission Statement:

Our mission is to mobilize our members to provide assistance to church plants in and around Middle Tennessee to make the real Jesus non-ignorable in our city and far beyond.

MEMBER TRAINING MINISTRY

The Word of God teaches that the Lord Jesus Christ loves His bride, the church, and gave His life for her. He also gave gifts to members of His church to use in His kingdom until He returns in glory. As part of the Multiply Churches Task Force, the Member Training Ministry has been established to help members of Immanuel Church grow in their Christian faith, and become fruitful and active in the body of Christ at Immanuel Church and in established church plants and churches yet to be planted by God’s grace. The Member Training Ministry will also work to highlight and inform members about the ministries of Immanuel Church and opportunities for service. Help will also be provided to those wanting to grow in their knowledge of God’s Word by offering resources to help train in Bible reading and memorization, catechism, and evangelism to help fulfill the mission of Immanuel Church.

LEADERSHIP & MINISTRY DEVELOPMENT

We are defining a clear development path for upcoming ministry leaders at Immanuel. Our need is for more high-impact leaders as officers, ministry team leads, and care group leaders. In order to plant churches in the coming years, our best and brightest church planters and teams of leaders will be sent out from Immanuel. Our job is to ensure that they are equipped theologically and practically for the task before them. One step toward becoming a better leader is to join the Immanuel Theology Group, now for both men and women.

CHURCH PLANTER IN RESIDENCE

Our first church planter in residence, Sean Brown, recently planted South City Church in Nashville. The program exists to prepare men to go out and plant churches in our city for the glory of God and the spread of the gospel in our time. Do you have a calling to plant a church? Immanuel Church wants to help make that dream a reality. There is much more work to do to continue improving and developing this position, but the program is defined and applications are available.

CHURCH PLANTER SUPPORT NETWORK

It is our desire to build upon the work God has already begun through the ministry of Pastor Jeremy Rose and Axis Church to assist in the development of a support network for church planters in the greater Nashville area that will serve them as they strive to faithfully proclaim the glorious gospel of Christ and minister throughout the city (through prayer, resources, etc.).

The primary means of doing this will be through connecting and building face-to-face relationships with Church Planters. Whether it’s grabbing a cup of coffee and catching up, attending church planter gatherings, or being a contact that can point them to an appropriate resource in a time of need, the Church Planting Support Ministry is ideal for anyone who has a passion for people and enjoys networking!

GLOBAL CHURCH PLANTING

Immanuel Nashville is partnering with the Crowded House Ministry (www.thecrowdedhouse.org) in Sheffield, England, to plant an Acts29 church in The Manor. Thank you for helping us meet and exceed our goal of funding one-half of the salary for a full-time church planter. We do anticipate continuing our support of The Manor through hands-on activity, while at the same time gaining experience and knowledge as we work in partnership with the Crowded House.
