 Cyclical LA circle chart: discerners to starters to churches


Our team identifies and supports discerning church starters, church starters and existing churches as they join the mission of God through the natural and historical lifecycle of starting new churches. This growing collective of leaders is an ecumenical community of innovators that share a common culture and set of practices created to thoughtfully start new churches across Los Angeles.
