  • How to develop a multiplying church culture

There is something for both new and seasoned leaders. CMS is directed by Gary Irby, NWBC Church Planting Director, and includes a great cast of experienced and effective presenters.  Gary draws from extensive experience in church planting- helping start multiple churches through his work as a church planter (in Washington and Oregon), staff member, mentor, supervisor, consultant, as well as developing the church planting network systems as Seattle Church Planting Director, as well as Northwest Baptist Convention Church Planting Director.
