WHAT WE DO...
The Pillar Network supports the church. We do this through equipping SBC churches and pastors to directly plant other biblically-structured churches, while helping to revitalize those that are struggling throughout the United States. We feel this works best when like-minded pastors/churches partner together in regional associations, where they can do life together as they further the gospel.
While Pillar is a planting/revitalizing network, our long term goal is to plant regional associations of healthy churches throughout the US. We believe a group of gospel-centered churches, cooperating together as a team in a particular region, is more likely to have a greater impact.
HOW DO WE COOPERATE?
The primary goal of cooperation within the Pillar Network is to equip each church to become a church planting congregation that multiplies disciples and sends them out to plant and revitalize other churches. We do this to support the Southern Baptist Convention and their agencies by coming along side them to help spread the good news.
Pillar Network sending churches, revitalizations, and plants, are all officially members of the SBC. As a result, these churches are able to fully partner with other Baptist entities including NAMB, state conventions and local associations. Many Pillar plants do choose to partner with both NAMB/SEND alongside of Pillar. Every Pillar Network church regularly gives to the Cooperative Program to support our SBC organizations.
HOW DO I GET INVOLVED?
God has given each individual specific gifts in order to increase the Kingdom of God. The Pillar Network exists to assist each believer in knowing and living out his or her role in church planting/revitalizating. If you are a pastor of an established church, an individual desiring to plant a church, or a church member who wants to use your gifts for church planting and revitalization efforts, click here to get involved.

WHAT WE'RE ALL ABOUT
Reaching North America by planting healthy, Regional Associations
Instead of simply planting localized, singular congregations, our method involves planting REGIONAL ASSOCIATIONS of churches that can strategically partner together for the good of the gospel in a given geographical focus. This way, the churches can unite for city-wide mission endeavors, form a strong brotherhood between their leaders, and fulfill a biblical method for saturation church planting, similar to how Paul planted in the New Testament.
our promise to all of our pastors:
we're in YOUR corner!
