Church Multiplication


Today, over 22 million people in our region are unreached or unchurched. The fastest growing number of adults in Michigan, Illinois, and Wisconsin are religious “nones”—those who answer “none of the above” on religious identification surveys.
This is our holy discontent, and our “Mi22ion”.
The 22 million unreached in our region need access to real, sustainable hope and a community of believers to help them grow.
The 22 million unchurched need support to help them develop their faith and then use it to reach more.
As a follower of Christ, maybe you feel a stirring but don’t know how God is calling you to respond. You long to see your family, friends, and community come into relationship with Jesus and wish you could see a clear path forward. 
Sharing the message of hope begins with one step, a step of obedience and faithfulness that says, “yes,” to God’s call.
Take your first step and start your journey toward expanding God’s Kingdom today!

“The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.” Luke 10:1-2
Prayer and church multiplication have always gone together. Jesus calls all of His followers to pray for His harvest workers.
 Please, join our prayer team as we pray for our churches, Christian leaders, evangelists and church planters who are leading a movement of multiplication across our region.

We want people everywhere to know Jesus!

Did you know more people come to Christ in a church plant than by any other means? This is one of the many reasons why church planting is so important.

Therefore, The GLR wants to walk beside you in the process. We’ve created a few tools to help equip and encourage Christians to take a risk and join in reaching every community with the hope and holiness of Jesus Christ by launching new churches and ministries.

Has God been calling you into deeper waters?

Maybe you aren’t called to plant something new, but instead expand what God has already given you through the process or campusing or multiplication.

We’d love to walk beside you as you chart the deep waters of church multiplication.

If you’re feeling like God may be calling you to something more, let’s talk about it!  Sometimes obedience starts with an action as simple as sending an email or making a phone call.
