If you think God may be calling you to start something new, getting equipped and discerning your call through the Missouri Planting Academy is a great place to start.

The Planting Academy is designed for persons who want to reach new people in fresh ways. Beginning February 2019, an intentional community will meet together monthly for 10 months to experience a culture of multiplication in an encouraging cohort. Through resources and coaching from highly regarded practitioners, laypersons and pastors alike will explore how to become Christ’s multipliers who create new places for new people.

The Missouri Planting Academy is a leadership training initiative of the Office of Congregational Excellence and is open to all. Questions? Contact Tammy Calcote at tcalcote@moumethodist.org or 573-777-1203.
