Is the Pillar Network right for you?
That is an important question that deserves prayer and consideration. Please see our About page for more information about the Pillar Network.
If you are an individual or church desiring to plant a church, please see our Partnership Process page for more information on how to partner with the Pillar Network.
There are several benefits the Pillar Network has for individuals and churches desiring to plant and/or revitalize churches. A few of those include:
- Planting- The Pillar Network equips churches to coach, train, and support new church planters. Philosophically, we believe it is the role of the local church, not a church planting network, to assess future planters and pastors and so it is our desire to equip the church to assess individuals instead of the Pillar Network doing the assessing.
- Coaching- Coaching happens in two ways. First, we provide a monthly coaching session for all members and prospective members of the Pillar network. Every other month we hold a national coaching session and then on the other months we hold a regional coaching session based on our six regions (West, Midwest, Northeast, Southeast (NC & VA), Southeast (SC & GA), and Southeast (South FL). Second, every church and church planter has access to coaching and mentoring by the Pillar Network Executive Director and other Pillar Network members.
- Equipping- We provide equipping and training through our coaching sessions as well as a yearly national conference. In addition, there will be select conferences and retreats available to specific groups within the Pillar Network like pastors wives. We also provide equipping for college students and recent post-college graduates through the Generation LINK residency program that is available in many of our churches.
- Cooperation and Networking- Many church plants fail because church planters feel isolated and alone. The Pillar Network provides meaningful relationships and networking opportunities through which pastors, planters, and church members can connect with others in a similar situation and receive encouragement, counsel, and advice.
