Our Church Planting Vision

It has always been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known, so that I would not be building on someone else’s foundation.
Romans 15:20

North America is the fastest-emerging mission field in the world.  Many churches have either lost connection with dynamic, apostolic orthodoxy or do not have a clear strategy for missional engagement.  Planting new churches is the single most effective way to reach people who are outside of a meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ.  Our vision is to plant, partner and network to see life-giving, reproducing local churches established in North America and other parts of the world.

The Union Chapel
Partnership Paradigm

We believe in Strategic Partnerships. More can be accomplished together than ever accomplished alone. Union Chapel partnerships are based on three essential points of reference:


Relationship / friendship

This implies a personal connection and inherent trust.


Shared Vision / values

These are the goals and motives we have in common.


Projects / mission

These are the activities and initiatives that naturally flow from our shared perspective.

We're looking for more planters!

Our Church-Planting Pastor, Robin Wood, has developed a tool for recruiting, assessing, and sending church planters. If you feel called to plant a church, and are looking for some helpful resources, we would love to get in touch with you.

To get started, fill out the Church Planting Inquiry form, and include your results from the DISC, Enneagram, Myers-Briggs, Spiritual Gifts, and StrengthsFinder personality tests.

Church Planting Inquiry

You can still equip without going.

If you would like to be a part of our church-planting vision, but don't feel called to go plant a church yourself, consider making a Faith Promise pledge. Faith Promise is different from a church pledge or contribution to the general church budget. It is not a pledge made to the church, it is a promise made to God. You are urged to ask God what you should trust him for, the amount He will enable you to give each week for missions during the coming year.
