START, an event that informs college-aged individuals of the changing landscape of church planting, will be on the campus of North Central University, October 26-28, 2011.
START is a three day campus event that exposes students and local pastors/leaders to the wide variety of church planters and church planting models. Guest speakers from across the nation led group sessions with NCU students and local church leaders, while also serving as the daily chapel speaker.
START is sponsored by the Church Multiplication Network (CMN) and is hosted by an Assemblies of God college or university and partnered with local districts. The event recognizes that not all Christians are called to lead a church plant, but believes in introducing everyone to ways that they can get involved and perhaps come alongside those who have been called to plant a church.
START special guests included Herbert Cooper (People’s Church), Leonard Sweet (author, speaker), Wilfredo de Jesus (New Life Covenant Church), Brad Davis (Desert Springs Church), Rob Ketterling (River Valley Church), Peter Haas (Substance Church), and Trinity Jordan (Elevation Church).
