It's Not Over Yet

When we are down or discouraged, it is encouraging to know that things are not over yet - there is life beyond the crisis. In this month's article, Bob Osborne, EFCA West's director of church health, shares a story about being down but not out, and one man's finish that was far beyond all he could have previously imagined. Helping one another through our tough seasons and our hope in Jesus Christ is something to talk about.

On May 21, 2023, churches around the EFCA will pray for new churches, new church planters and the support of Sending and Partnering Churches. Can your church take five minutes to talk about church planting? Follow the link below for resources you can use. Meet some of our EFCA West church planters.


EFCA West Assessment Retreat This Summer!

EFCA West helps potential church planters discern their calling and gain essential feedback on their future plans so they can move forward with success in their ministry journey.

Many planters fail to establish a new church because they’ve misunderstood their ministry calling or they have entered their planting journey without the plans and resources they need to thrive. 

Our assessment process helps planting candidates discern gifts and calling and gain affirmation and clarity in their planting plan. This process not only helps planter candidates, but also supports sending churches, networks, and regional leaders so they can most effectively walk alongside candidates discerning a call to plant a church.

All candidates go through a pre-assessment process before being invited to an EFCA West Assessment Center Retreat. After the retreat, the planting candidate and spouse are given a comprehensive report with extensive feedback from a panel of trained and experienced assessors. This grace-filled and encouraging process gives candidates confidence and direction in their future calling.

For more information please contact our Director of Church Multiplication Dean Mayeda.
