Boston Church Planting is on Move!

Welcome to the movement! We are so excited that you are involved.

No matter where you are in the process, we are here to partner with you to bring Gospel-preaching, Christ-centered men to the area.

Watch the videos and get info on cities and towns

We are developing tools here to help you understand our cities and towns and the people who live in them.

Check out our Online Videos – from a 15-minute overview to individual interviews with 12 different planters who are already on the ground in Greater-Boston. Start with the main video here

– Meet our planters – from our home page, you can watch a couple dozen short interviews with the planters God has already called to Boston. Listen to their hearts, listen to the challenges and the victories. Get started

– Investigate cities and towns  – visit inTown  where 24 of our top target cities and towns are profiled. Get demographic data and other insights that may help you narrow in on the place God has in mind for you.
