The United States is ripe with Gospel opportunities. More than 3,700 churches close every year. Nearly 500 people groups now live in our neighborhoods. More than 80% of our churches are plateaued or in a state of decline. The United States is now the third largest mission field in the world.

Church planting is the most effective means of turning the tide and seizing the opportunity to reach people who are far from God. The time is now to plant new Regular Baptist Churches in communities across America. The Regular Baptist Builders Club offers up to $30,000 in start-up funds for churches, mission agencies, or state organizations to help with church planting efforts. These funds can be used in the prenatal, birth (launch), and growth of the church in the first three years of the church’s existence. Each recipient agency will account for its usage of funds and services.

The Regular Baptist Builders Club also offers nearly $30,000 in products and services to help church plants get established in ministering to their communities.

We pray this initiative will encourage more leaders to consider church planting ministries. Below is assistance that could be available:
