Starting Strong

Through the Starting Strong program, Church Planters are taught skills and empowered with principles that will enable them to start a church in strength. Through a “4 Step” process, the Church Planter is trained and assessed in areas such as: Marketing, Team Development, Budgeting, and Governance, all of which will help them thrive from Day One, and start from a position of significant strength. For applicants who meet specific criteria, investment funding is available.

What is Starting Strong l Church Planting in ACC QLD/NT

Our Mandate

To champion the planting of churches in Qld & NT! This has been one of our main strategies in the ACC for reaching lost people and enriching communities. We have seen a net increase of 230 churches over the last 25 years and our objective is to see more churches planted to reach the QLD & NT’s ever increasing population.

Our Mission

To assist Church Planters in planting Life-giving Churches in Qld & NT. We do this through training, resourcing, personal support and now with our new STARTING STRONG Initiative, through partnership and strategic financial investment.

Our Desire

To empower leaders, Churches and Church Planters to start strong vibrant life-giving Churches. We understand that there are many strategies that exist in Church Planting such as The Cold Start, Mother /Daughter Church, Cell Model, Satellite Church Model and now our STARTING STRONG model. It is this diversity and yet unity in purpose that we celebrate.
