A Church Planting Church

Through church planting, we cultivate hearts by practicing the way of Jesus together throughout the city and world. We thoroughly believe that “Jesus’ measure of the church is not seating capacity, but sending capacity (J.D. Greear, Gaining by Losing).” Ultimately, it is not enough for us to just plant Kardia but it is imperative we plant churches throughout Seattle, the Northwest and the World.

As we are in the early stages of planting Kardia and forming culture we are working to do the same with a church planting network. Our upcoming church planting events are to help equip planters and pastors as well as to find like-minded partners throughout Seattle and the Northwest so we can plant many churches together.

Upcoming Church Planting Events

5Q & Church Planting

In 5Q, Alan Hirsch takes a deep dive into the fivefold (APEST) typology of ministry as articulated in Ephesians 4:1–16. With profound theological and cultural insight as well as innovative practice, Hirsch once again not only shifts the conversation itself, but also the scorecard on how we understand calling, church, leadership, and organization. Check out the Listen Now button to watch how to engage further in a transformative process for your own discipleship, leadership and the journey of your church or organization. This event was sponsored by Kardia Church, Open Home Church and the Foursquare Northwest District.
