We Want to Plant More Churches
The Bridge Montrose started in September of 2014 as a church plant with the vision to plant more churches. We are often asked, “Why do you need to plant another church? Aren’t there enough churches already?” There are a multitude of reasons why, but let us just say this: planting churches has been proven to be the most effective way of reaching people and communities far from God with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. What we know is that churches will naturally rise out of making disciples of Jesus, which we define as reaching people with the Gospel of Jesus unto salvation and walking alongside those people toward spiritual maturity. We want to plant churches in areas where there is either an absence of the Gospel or where people of the Gospel do not have a local church.
We Are Already Saving and Training
We've set aside $60,000 so far and are working to raise up leaders to send out. Our prayer is to be able to send out people well-equipped and healthy, over and over again. We are learning along the way.
What We Need
We need you to come alongside us. We need your prayers and we need you. We have found that one of the biggest bottlenecks to sending out churches is identifying lead church planters. If you or someone you know may be interested in being a lead church planter, let us know by emailing us through the link below. Also, if you are interested in joining in with a community that is striving to do this well (although imperfectly), please come jump in with us on this journey.
You can also partner with us financially. If you would like to give financially, you can use the link below. Please select "General Fund" to give to our ongoing daily work of making disciples of Jesus or you can give to our church planting fund by selecting "Special Offering" fund and writing church planting in the memo line.
Our Partnerships and Networks
We are part of the EFCA which has a rich history of planting churches.
• The EFCA is a denomination that operates more like a network. Our district has support systems and coaching in place to help church planters be highly effective. We operate as a band of brothers and sisters as we work together in the disciplemaking church planting mission with Jesus.
• You can find out more about the EFCA and our district by clicking HERE.
We partner with the Houston Church Planting Network (HCPN).
• The HCPN operates as a networks of networks working to prepare planting pastors and planting churches by pursuing Saturation, Collaboration, Formation, and Multiplication.
