The Reformed Church in America (RCA) has both a rich, nearly 400 year history, and a vibrant goal to plant 1,000 churches that will reach 100,000 new disciples by 2038. While centered in North America, we are now also planting in international locations like Nepal, South America, Dominican Republic and Europe. In order to support an average of 1 new plant per week, we have formed strategic partnerships with planting experts like Lifeway, Stadia, PlanterPlan, Fresh Expressions and MissionInsite for planter and site assessment, coaching, training and project management tools. We have micro plants located in rural and urban settings, classic church plants and multiplication centers with several sites of varying sizes. The RCA celebrates the gifts of both women and men as planters and a large percentage of our planters are people of color. We have colleagues who are available to help with discipleship pathways, leadership development and local mission engagement.
