what we do
PlantR’s aim is to network, resource, and encourage church planters in two main ways:
Missional Hubs & Micro Conferences
PlantR began in 2007 when a small group of church planters began to meet for equipping and encouragement. In monthly meetings, local and national leaders shared their insights on topics ranging from demographics to missional living to church and the arts. By 2008, PlantR grew into a regular monthly meeting of church planters from a wide variety of denominations.
In 2011, the network took a strategic step, turning its focus to monthly regional gatherings called Missional Hubs and quarterly equipping experiences called MicroConferences. We believe this decentralized reorganization will lead to greater missional impact. PlantR’s dream is that this strategy will catalyze a movement of church planting and other expressions of God’s mission for years to come throughout the Austin area.
