Upcoming Church Plant Projects

There is hands down no better strategy for growing the Kingdom than through the impact of new churches. Second place doesn’t even come close! Nothing else: crusades, rallies, para-church ministries, youth programs, outreach strategies, church growth consulting and renewal programs don’t compare. Below you will find some of the upcoming projects that we are very excited about. Keep checking back for more updates on these upcoming projects as we announce them.

Columbia Heights, DC

A native of Ecuador, Joel Pazmino is the planter of our project spawned by Virginia churches as a result of ICOM in Richmond in October 2015. Joel recently completed a one-year residency at one of our church plants, New Life Christian Church in Chantilly and will be officially launching his project on September 10th, 2017.

Restore Christian Church, Jacksonville, NC

Waypoint is partnering with the Eastern NC Christian Men’s Fellowship to plant a church in Jacksonville, NC. Roger Burns is the lead planter. An hour north of Wilmington, Jacksonville is a growing city of more than 80,000 and home to Camp Lajeune, a large Marine training facility. With a population averaging under 24 years of age, it has been called “America’s Youngest City.”

Roger recently completed a one-year residency with another Waypoint church plant, Two Rivers Church of Christ, in nearby New Bern, NC. Roger was also a member of the 10-month Church Planting Residency Cohort with Passion for Planting. The launch date for this project is projected for March 19th, 2017.
