Church Planting / Replanting

The Church Planting / Replanting Team exists to help LRBA churches plant and replant churches in Louisville and beyond.

Plant Louisville

Plant Louisville is a big picture strategy that fosters and facilitates church planting and replanting in the Louisville region for the glory of God. Plant Louisville has two key goals:​

Identify Priority Areas

The Church Planting team evaluates data about the Louisville Region to identify priority areas where more churches are needed, and we stay up to date with replanting opportunities. We then tell the stories of these areas and opportunities to help others see the needs and get involved.   

Help Churches Plant and Replant

The Church Planting team encourages churches to take their first step or next step in planting or replanting. First, we help them Pray for a specific area or replant opportunity and for God to raise up leaders. Second, we help them Plan by making all the needed preparations to be ready to plant a church in a specific area. Third, we help the Plant by sending out a leader and core team when the time is right.  

Prayer Guides

  • God may be calling you, so ask Him to guide you to your next step in planting and replanting. 
  • We need leaders, so ask God to raise up laborers who are eager and ready to plant and replant in the Louisville region.  
  • We need partners, so ask God to raise up churches eager and ready to meet the planting and replanting needs in the Louisville region.  
  • Pray for the priority neighborhoods in the Louisville region and the residents who live in these neighborhoods. Ask God to prepare hearts and provide opportunities.
