Church Planting

Making God Known and Enjoyed in Cities Elsewhere

God calls all of us to have a role in and be a part of global missions. We are participants in the bigger story, in God’s plan to bring redemption to all peoples. But where can you start? How can you join in?

Through Sending at The Village, we plant churches and reach the unreached with the gospel of Jesus Christ, and we want to send you or help you send others.

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 DFW and beyond.

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

Campus Transitions

We desire to see the gospel multiplied and seek to use the multi-site model as a strategy for church planting. Through Multiply, we plan to transition our remaining campuses into autonomous churches by 2022.


Through our Sending Program, we equip and send church planters and missionaries to reach the unreached with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

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're interested in going through the Sending Program as a missionary or a church planter, contact Adam Lancaster.


We team up with organizations like Acts 29, where Matt currently sits as president, and the DFW Church Planting Network 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 have a role in global missions and you are called to be a part of it. How will you join in God’s story?

Discover your role in reaching the unreached in Go 101 or on a Go Trip.

Support church planters and missionaries financially or join in God’s work among the nations through Go Trips.

Our Church Planters

Scott Brooks

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

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

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

Clint Patronella - Seven Mile Road

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

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

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.
