We are a family of churches working together to proclaim the Gospel, make disciples, and plant churches.

Learn MoreJoin CGNPartner 200

We work together for Gospel-centered renewal, providing leaders with relationship and resourcing as we follow the way of Jesus.

We’re committed to being a part of something bigger than just one church. We’re a family consisting of Churches across national and denominational borders.

Together, we’re committed to the renewal of all things through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe the best way to do this is through providing relationships that will help disciples of Christ serve together, and resources that will help disciples serve well.

CGN Initiatives

Cultivate: Church Planter Training Program

Planting autonomous Gospel-centered churches in partnership with the local church. Empowering local churches to assess, train, and deploy new church planters and missionaries.

The Expositors Collective is a growing network of pastors, leaders, and laypeople which exists to equip, encourage, and mentor the next generation of Christ-centered preachers. We provide resources through our weekly podcast, our two-day intentional training seminars, and interactive webinars.

When She Leads

When She Leads is an active community for women in ministry. Women lead and serve in high levels of church leadership and through our podcast, conferences, zoom and in-person gatherings, resources and our new care and coaching team, we want women to feel encouraged, equipped and connected to one another.”

Connect: Gospel-Centered Care & Coaching

Connect is a relational initiative within the CGN family of churches that aims to support the flourishing of pastors, leaders, and churches. Our approach is centered on the belief that leaders flourish when they are connected with God and one another. To help leaders achieve this, Connect provides care, coaching, and resources, including confidential care and counseling, coaching, mentoring for practical issues of church leadership, church administrative support, and a podcast on navigating the unique challenges of ministry. Collectively, these resources are designed to promote healthy relationships, advance the Gospel, make disciples, and plant churches.
