Starting a new church is one of the most exciting things you will ever do, but there will be times when your faith is tested like never before. Ministrymaker Ministries has been training, equipping and encouraging church leaders since 2001. Some are in the process of building a new church or ministry, while others are seeking help with personal issues or their faith.
If you feel the Lord leading you to start a church, especially from scratch, there’s probably a need only your ministry can meet. We hope you are blessed by our collection of inspirational articles, guides and sermons written by men and women of God who have either planted a church, started a ministry, or helped others fulfill their vision. Check out our church planting guide to get started.
