Church Planting

Making God Known and Enjoyed in Cities Elsewhere

Gospel-Centered Multiplication

We exist to bring glory to God by making disciples through gospel-centered worship, gospel-centered community, gospel-centered service and gospel-centered multiplication. This is our mission and process for discipleship. Out of this, gospel-centered multiplication is the result of discipleship, replicating Christ in others. One of the ways we pursue and live out this discipleship trait is through church planting.

How We Plant Churches

God has determined the exact time and place in which we live, work and play for His glory (Acts 17:26). We steward our resources well and spread the gospel further when we build up healthy, gospel-centered churches. We multiply the kingdom by planting these churches, whose people can continue the good work of making God known and enjoyed in cities and places everywhere.

But how do we do it? We create new campuses. We send out church planters. We partner with existing churches. We resource.

Campus Transitions 

We have a growing conviction to see the gospel multiplied and to use the multi-site model as a strategy for church planting. The creation of new campuses gives our church the opportunity to use Matt Chandler’s gift of preaching and gathering to raise up strong, gospel-centered churches.


Through our Sending Program, we raise up, train and send out missionaries and church planters to be effective ministers of reconciliation in the world.

For church planters, the program is developmental in nature and will prepare men in both the theological “whys” and practical “how-tos” of church leadership before launching them into pastoral ministry and church planting. If you are interested in the church planter track, please fill out our Initial Interest Form by February 28. Note: The form takes 1 – 2 hours to complete.


We team up with organizations like Acts 29, where Matt currently sits as president, and Fellowship Associates to help plant churches that plant churches.


We provide financial coaching and curriculum support to various church plants throughout the year, as needs are brought to us.


You can support our vision for church planting in three ways: pray, give and go. You can spend time as an individual or as a group pleading with the Lord on behalf of church planters. You can give financially to church planting or a specific church planter. And you can go, if the Lord calls you to plant a new church or to be a part of one.

Our Church Planters

Scott Brooks - The Door Church

In 2011, Scott Brooks felt the Lord stir his heart to plant a church. Unsure of where to begin, Scott found himself in John 9:39. This particular passage eventually led him to his hometown of Coppell, Texas. With the collaboration of The Village and Acts 29, Scott went on to plant The Door Church.

Blake Chilton - Declaration Church

A few years ago, Blake Chilton and his family visited his hometown of Bryan-College Station. During that weekend, God planted a seed, burdening Chilton’s heart for his hometown and the community there. In 2014, after doing a residency through Fellowship Associates, Blake moved home to plant Declaration Church.

Samuel Orrico – ComunidadEs Nova

After moving to the U.S. to complete his theological education, Samuel and his wife, Rebekah, were called back to his hometown of Xalapa, Mexico. With a desire to spread the gospel there, they planted ComunidadEs Nova. Today, Mexico is struggling with political corruption, social unrest and drug wars, but Samuel and Rebekah are confident that Jesus is better.

Clint Patronella – Seven Mile Road Church

In 2012, Clint visited Boston, Massachusetts, for the first time and began to feel a burden for the people there. He is working with Seven Mile Road to plant a church in Waltham, a suburb of Boston. Their vision is to saturate the culture of Boston with the gospel of Jesus Christ, for the glory of God and the good of the city.

Billy Rose - South Dallas Community Church

When Billy became a volunteer mentor with Champions of Hope, it wasn't long before he and his wife, Areia, felt called to move to South Dallas, and soon Billy joined the COH staff. His desire for discipleship and community grew as he led Home Groups in the South Dallas area, and after a few years, God called him to plant South Dallas Community Church.

Rick White - CityView Church

The vision for CityView Church developed in early 2005. Confident that God was calling him to plant a church, Rick White began to explore potential locations in the Metroplex and landed on Fort Worth. Through The Village, Rick launched the church in 2006. Since then, CityView planted a church in downtown Fort Worth called Paradox.
