Basic training

Basic Training is a required class offered by Northwest Baptist Church Planting for area planters.  It is essentially boot camp for planters new to the field.  The training takes place over an intense four day period.  Planters, Spouses, Planting Team Members and Mentors/Coaches remove themselves from the distractions of the field and commit time, thought, and prayer to developing a Church Planting strategy.  Planters leave with a specific strategy and identified milestones to begin implementation. If you have questions, please contact: Natalie Hammond.
