Orchard Group connects entrepreneurial leaders and generous partners in order to establish churches in cities. Born in New York City in 1948, Orchard Group has been planting churches in cities for more than 70 years.

Are you a church planter? Orchard Group has your back: We share the fundraising burden with you. We build a partnership team to support you. We connect you with a peer network of other planters. We walk with you through the challenges until your church plant is fully established.

Are you an investing church partner? Orchard Group makes multiplying your mission simple: You get top church planters and locations. You get new and maintained channels of accountability and support. You become meaningfully engaged. And you share with your congregation the stories of transformed lives.
