Do you feel called to plant an urban church? Are you interesting in learning more about what starting a new church in a city might look like? Learn from seven experienced church planters from around the country about their experience planting a church in an urban context.

This event is hosted by Orchard Group, a church planting organization that has been planting urban churches in and from New York City since 1948. We work with a diverse group of exceptional church planters to custom-build new churches in cities in the USA and around the world.

Our gathering will be broken up into a series of short 20 minute presentations, followed by a Q&A where you can dialogue with the presenters. Here are the topics and speakers:
