Start a Church

WE WANT TO HELP YOU START A LIFE-GIVING CHURCH

If you have a dream in your heart to start a church and reach your city with the hope of Jesus, ARC is here to come alongside you in the journey. Our goal is to help you see that dream come true by providing the necessary tools to help you launch and grow a life-giving church.

ARC’s model has been proven through the launch of hundreds of churches, with large launch day attendance and long-term success that exceeds national averages. When you choose to launch with ARC, you have access to all the resources that make this possible.

HOW IT WORKS

ARC Launch is designed to take you from the dream of starting a church to the reality of launch day by walking you through a four-phase process.  These phases include EXPLORE, TRAIN, QUALIFY and START.

EXPLORE

This is your entry point into the ARC Launch process. In this phase you will set up your MY ARC LAUNCH profile and learn more about the ARC church planting model.

TRAIN

In this phase you will have the opportunity to attend our three-day live training event called ARC Launch intensive. This event is taught by experienced church planters and covers topics such as: how to build a launch team, fundraising, effective marketing, how to design a great weekend service, and how to implement an easy assimilation process that works.

QUALIFY

The Qualify Phase has three steps: Application, Evaluation, and Interviews. During this phase you will apply to be an ARC planter, learn more about yourself, and receive valuable feedback from experienced pastors on your readiness to start a church with ARC.

START

In the Start phase you will receive launch coaching, accomplish launch milestones, and receive funding dedicated towards your launch. This final phase of ARC Launch can only be entered after being approved in Qualify.
