New Church Development Resource & Training

This page supports the growing commitment of dioceses to plant new churches and redevelop existing congregations in response to the 20/20 initiative adopted by the General Convention of 2000 in Denver. This initiative calls for the Episcopal Church to double its size by the year 2020 as a faithful response to the mission of the church “to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ” (BCP p. 855) and the Great Commission to “Go therefore and make all nations my disciples” (Mt. 28:19).

The resources and links on this page will help direct you to diocese with experience in new church development. You can also find some stories of diocese that provide learning about what works and what doesn’t. Conferences and events that support new church development are also posted on this site.
