Invested In Church Multiplication


The EFCA Central is looking for individuals and churches; lay people and pastoral leaders; pioneers and team players to invest in the work of church multiplication.

You may have an idea about church planting that you wish to explore further; you may be working on strategic planning in your church and considering ways to expand your outreach; you may be considering God’s call to be a church planting pastor or part of a church planting team; or you may be ready to invest your support in prayer and finances for this important work. We are interested in your ideas, strategies, or questions.

The mission of “multiplying healthy churches among all people” demands a strong commitment for planting new churches in the EFCA Central. Our vision is to plant life-giving Bible teaching churches within driving distance of all who live in the region we serve.

The EFCA Central has almost tripled in the number of member churches since 1989 when the people of EFCA Central made a specific commitment to vigorous and intentional church multiplication. We believe the best way to further the gospel is for life-giving churches to plant other life-giving churches in nearby communities.

You are invited to partner with us as we pursue the Great Commission of Jesus Christ through the starting of new Evangelical Free Churches in Arkansas, Iowa, Missouri, and southeast South Dakota. Contact one of our Church Multiplication team members, Paul Bauman and Todd Brooks.
