Church Plant Residency

Church Plant Residency (CPR)

Purpose

The church plant residency at Mount Pleasant Baptist Church is designed to equip, educate, and prepare Biblically qualified men to plant faithful and fruitful churches in our community, state, nation, and world. This residency exists for men who have been called by God into vocational ministry to help equip them to build a team to faithfully plant or revitalize a church. This residency cannot offer an exhaustive training for church planting or pastoral ministry, but rather give the individual the necessary tools, experience, and training to be successful. Each candidate selected will be trained through our residency by our pastoral staff and leverage any other resources we find helpful to develop competency in their directed field.

Overview

The church plant residency at Mount Pleasant Baptist Church will be up to a 2-year agreement requiring full time attention. The residency will combine practical pastoral ministry experience with academic reading and instruction led by mentorship by the pastoral staff.

Partnerships

Mount Pleasant Baptist Church hopes to structure this residency in partnership with the Southern Baptist Conservatives of Virginia (SBCV) and the North American Mission Board (NAMB). The pastoral staff realize we cannot do this alone, both financially and organizationally. We are excited that these partners are excited to see healthy churches planted while reminding us that “we are not alone” in this endeavor. Churches planted or revitalized out of our residency will be expected to cooperate within the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC).
