Kansas District of The Wesleyan Church

Developing and Deploying Missional Churches


We live in an exciting time full of possibility to reach people with the transforming presence of Jesus. While research indicates that our culture is trending towards a post-Christian trajectory, we also know how hungry people are for an authentic encounter with something meaningful, eternal, and bigger than themselves. And we know Jesus is the only One who can reset the course of our lives, fill us with purpose, and release us to have an impact on our world.

Launching fresh expressions of gospel community is the best strategy for reaching those far from God. Because it takes all kinds of churches to reach all kinds of people, we envision a variety of missional approaches to take the gospel into every nook and cranny of our society. Rural. Multi-ethnic. Suburban. Urban. Big. Small. No matter the context, our goal is to see 15 of these new churches planted by 2022.

Are you one of those God has set apart to lead this gospel movement? Will you be someone who answers the call?

If you’re interested in church planting, we would love to explore a partnership together and what it could look like. Email us at churchplanting@kdwc.org.
