Reaching your nation through Church Planting!

Over the past 10 years a group of church planting leaders from diverse European nations met regularly to think through National Church Planting Processes (NC2P) in Europe. We’ve tried to learn from the best practitioners on church planting in the European context and always out of a strong theological and missiological framework. Out of this gatherings was developed this portal that seeks to understand and promote National Church Planting Processes (NC2P) in Europe.

The What: as far as we can observe a national church planting process works towards a reality when the majority of the body of Christ cooperates with one another for the purpose of seeing churches multiplied in all the nation’s geographic, ethnic and cultural spaces. A national church planting process is usually propelled by relationship and vision casting moving towards collaboration and momentum in new strategic activity (prayer, training etc.) until it reaches a tipping point and results in measurable progress in church planting through evangelism winning people for Christ.

The tipping point takes place when:

  • A process is underway involving collaboration and momentum
  • Church planting is helping cause net growth in a) new evangelical churches and b) total evangelical attendance nationally and in each of its geographic, ethnic and cultural spaces. Measurement requires an ongoing national research process.
  • Cooperation of the majority of evangelical denominations, agencies etc. involving mutual learning, sharing training materials or experiences, and/or benefiting from common information (research) etc.)

The How: as far as we’ve been able to observe the following four mission-critical components are vital to a national church planting initiative: Leadership, Information, Gathering and Systems. Click on the menus to learn more about the process of NC2P and the Four Missional Components.

What is NC2P?

In this video, Øivind Augland explains what is NC2P and how the four missional components come together to help nations further church planting process in their respective country.
