Church Planting Assistants

Our mission is to prepare and equip young adult believers for service in new AFLC churches. We exist to help new Free Lutheran church plants and starts become established congregations. College-age believers with two years of Bible training continue their learning experience by moving into new churches, using their gifts, and serving ministry families.

Meet our assistants

Our Church Planting Assistants meet together each month for training and encouragement. They also gather together each January for a retreat in Mesa, AZ. This coincides with the Church Planting Retreat. Please be praying for each of our Church Planting Assistants.
