Thank you for your interest in TCTN!
In order to proceed with the membership application which best fits your church's age and size, please select from the options below.
Church Planters are nearing or within the final quarter of their church planting residency at a local TCT church. They likely have already completed all or a majority of the requirements for the residency including a church planter assessment. The next step is to meet with a Treasuring Christ Together Network assessment team to be assessed for TCTN membership as a church planter prior to commissioning by their sending church.
NOTE: Planters may also apply who have already completed residencies outside of TCTN, and should select "Church Planter" on this application as their designation.
Parent Church or New Church
Parent Churches are like-minded churches whose elders embrace the TCTN Affirmation of Faith as well as a shared vision for planting churches domestically and around the world. Parent Churches submit to TCT assessment to be approved as either 1) a church planting residency center or 2) a sending church which will supply potential church planters or church plant team members from its membership to plant TCTN churches.
New Churches are churches which have been recently birthed and possess a healthy income / funding plan (recommended $1500-2500 in weekly offerings depending on context and budget needs) as well as at least 40 adults gathering as part of the new church body.
Planting Partners are churches and individuals who desire to provide financial and relational support directly to a partnering TCTN Church Planter. This partnership provides a relationship by connecting the church to a TCT-approved planter, and Planting Partners commit to one year agreements to prayerfully financially support this planter. All money given through Planting Partner gifts goes directly to a church plant.
