Since 2008, CMN has trained more than 7,500 leaders and helped launch more than 3,625 new churches
We believe that every community deserves a healthy, Spirit-empowered church. Not just any church, but a place of worship that has been adapted to the needs of the community and is led by someone who is passionate about the people who live there.
One size doesn't fit all. We believe that God works through a variety of church models. Whether you live in the city, the suburb, or the country, He still wants to work in your community.
Thinking about planting a church? Connect with us. It's our mission to equip, fund, and network leaders in the church with the ultimate goal of multiplying the Kingdom of God across the United States.
"God put the dream of planting a church inside of us, but we had no clue what to do. All of that changed when I got connected with the Church Multiplication Network. Because of their influence, we were able to launch a life-giving and Spirit-filled church in Tampa, FL, where we have seen more than 3,000 decisions for Christ – and this is just the beginning."
–Aaron Burke, Lead Pastor of Radiant Church

"I am praying and believing for a healthy Assemblies of God church in every community in America. The Church Multiplication Network is a proven and effective resource for church planters, districts, and pastors who have a vision for multiplying the church and seeing people come to faith in Christ."
–Doug Clay, General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God

In June of 2008, the Assemblies of God Executive Presbytery approved a plan to establish and maintain the Church Multiplication Network as a resource for new church planters. The vision behind CMN was to support then-general superintendent Dr. George O. Wood in implementing one his core values: to vigorously plant new churches. That was beginning of the Network as we know it.
Under the initial leadership of Steve Pike and now, Dr. Chris Railey, CMN has grown rapidly. 20% of all Assemblies of God churches have been established in the last ten years, with CMN aiding in the training of more than 7,500 leaders and facilitating the launch of more than 3,700 new churches since 2008. In that time, CMN has also worked with the AGTrust to distribute matching funds to more than 500 churches—with more than $16 million distributed since CMN’s inception.
Much of this growth can be attributed to the mission behind the Church Multiplication Network. In the last few years, leaders from all over the country have rallied behind the vision of “a healthy church in every community,” with the long-term goal of seeing a healthy, Spirit-empowered church in every city in the United States.
