Superintendent Larry has commissioned the FMCSC to plant 50 new churches in 5 years. In the first 3 years, we have planted over 30 new communities of satellite congregations, emerging ministry points, house churches and church planting projects. Lead by Larry Walkemeyer (Senior Pastor & Superintendent) and Joe Castillo (Senior Pastor & Assistant to the Superintendent of Church Planting) this strategic priority will discuss planting new churches, exploring new models and forging new paths for ministry to people groups both unreached and newly disenfranchised. We believe that the harvest is plentiful. Will you labor with us?
Forging New Paths for Ministry
Equal effort is pledged to strengthening the existing church and to the holistic recruiting, equipping, and sending of new church planters. Planting new churches, exploring new models, forging new paths for ministry to people groups both unreached and newly disenfranchised, through satellite congregations, emerging ministry points, bi-vocational leadership, the re-scripting of house churches for a new generation, and a willingness to wisely lead into the unknown in order to fulfill the gospel-call.
Larry Walkemeyer is the Central Superintendent for the FMCSC and Co-Pastor of Light and Life Christian Fellowship North in Long Beach. In 1999, the Lord spoke to Larry to become a ‘river’ church; one that sends people rather than collecting them. Through that message, Larry has commissioned the FMCSC to plant 50 new churches in 5 years. Three years into that goal, the FMCSC is ahead of schedule.
Joe Castillo is the Senior Pastor of Light and Life Christian Fellowship Sylmar and the Assistant to the Superintendent for Church Planting. Joe’s apostolic gifts has allowed him and his family to plant and help plant churches in California and Africa, as well as develop an extensive network around the world.
