Upcoming Events


Start in LA Conference
October 11-12, 2019

Fuller Theological Seminary Campus
Pasadena, CA

2019 Theme: Sent to Flourish

This Start in LA conference draws from Fuller Church Planting's new book, Sent to Flourish: A Guide to Planting and Multiplying Churches,and focuses on three major components of a thriving church planter: biblical foundations for church planting, spiritual formation of a church planter, and Spirit-informed mission for a post-Christian world. The speakers include some of the Sent to Flourish authors as well as Fuller faculty and local church planters.

About the Book:

Sent to Flourish is a unique guide to accompany current and prospective church planters as they respond to this essential but sometimes daunting call. Theologically grounded while remaining practically oriented, it combines biblical patterns and practice to equip men and women planters to develop their own holistic planting plans.

Written by a diverse team of scholar-practitioners who have planted churches in a variety of contexts, cultures, and church traditions, this book provides a tested roadmap based on Fuller Theological Seminary's renowned church-planting program.

You can preorder the book through IVP for $35, or you can purchase a conference discounted copy of the book with your ticket and save $15!
