The mission of the Arkansas Church Planting Network (ACPN) is to build a movement of church planting churches in the state of Arkansas and the region. ACPN will cooperate with God to plant two churches a year from 2020 – 2025 in Arkansas and the regions near to the state of Arkansas.
We will develop partnerships with established churches, church plants, church planting ministries, and church planters to grow the Kingdom of God in Arkansas and the region. We will focus on leader care, training, and mentoring of the church planters in the state of Arkansas to assist our young churches to grow in maturity and size. We will plant churches in three kinds of communities:
Growing communities with populations less than 10,000 people (5A/6A strategy)
The largest five metropolitan areas of Arkansas and the region
Growing minority populations in the state of Arkansas especially among the Hispanic
ACPN will also seek to expand our model of church planting to include various models of church planting (parachute plant, bi-vocational plant, launch team plant through missional small groups).
