We provide a coaching and training through a variety of methods:

  1. Church Planting Residency (for those more than a year out from planting…more info below.)
  2. Church Planters Coaching Group (for those who are within one year of planting)
  3. Multipliers Fellowship (for pastors who launch churches and send out church planters)
  4. Catalyst Groups (local groups of pastors and church planters who get together regularly for fellowship and trainings. We are currently launching a group in Pittsburgh, then plan to expand these to other cities in the Northeast.)

If you are interested in any of these, email jeffl@allisonparkchurch.com.

Residency to Get Ready

Our residency program is for those who feel that God may be calling them to plant a church but are more than a year away from that step. A ministry residency is a nine-month preparation and placement process. During this nine-month period, the resident will experience the following:


Each resident receives mentoring from the Lead Pastor of the church where you are serving.


The resident will have a chance to observe a new church’s launch process first-hand.


We help you discover your gifting and calling, with the goal of placement as a church planter or on a church-planting team.


Each resident will be asked to lead somewhere in the environment of the local church and will be treated as part of the pastoral team.


The most valuable of all of these experiences is the lasting relationship that can be formed within the RNE Network.

In most cases, a residency is an unpaid volunteer program.
