Who We Are
The Houston Church Planting Network is a network of networks, made up of church planters, future church planters, network and denominational leaders, business leaders, and leaders from existing churches committed to church planting – all who love the city of Houston and want to see new churches planted that proclaim and demonstrate the gospel to every Houstonian.
Network Of Networks
There are several networks, denominations, and churches committed to planting churches in the Houston area. HCPN serves as a network of networks where leaders and planters from different groups come together to share best practices and cooperate to reach the city.
The focus of HCPN is on church planters. The belief is that healthy churches are planted by healthy church planters, leaders and teams. We are committed to strengthening church planters through resources, coaching, and connecting planters to one another.
In order to impact a growing city like Houston there must be a commitment to multiplication. Our heart is to see exponential growth of church planters, churches, and networks committed to starting new churches.
We are committed to giving every man, woman, and child the opportunity to respond to Jesus by seeing new churches started throughout the city that will impact every pocket of our diverse city.
What We Do
How To Get Involved
1. Attend A Gathering
Join us for our monthly gathering as we meet and learn about church planting, and how God is at work in the greater Houston area. This is a great first step in learning more about the vision and connecting with others throughout the city who have a heart towards collaborating together to plant churches.
2. Train With Us
If you are in the process of church planting consider one of our church planting training programs. If you are involved with HCPN and would like to be involved in training church planters please contact us.
3. Partner With Us
We partner with churches that are committed to reaching greater Houston through planting new churches. Consider becoming a partner and collaborating with other churches throughout the city.
In my role as visionary for NewThing we have been blessed to start church planting networks across the U.S. and around the world. So, I'm often asked, "Where can I see a great example of a network that has come together to help plant churches across a city?" One of the networks I point out as a premier example is the Houston Church Planting Network! HCPN is a diverse network of churches that love church planters, church planting and the mission of Jesus! I highly recommend them.Dave FergusonVisionary for NewThing
Watching what the HCPN has been able to accomplish over the past few years has been an incredible thing. We are actually using their strategy and structure as we seek to build something similar in the Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex.Matt ChandlerLead Pastor at the Village Church
