Serving the Anglican Church in North America

Get equipped for the task God is calling you to

At the Church Plant Training Intensive

"Planting a church is hard. Planting a sacramental, liturgical, historical, missional church is harder. Attempting either without proper training is unwise at best and, in actuality, quite dangerous." - The Rev. Canon Dr. Dan Alger

We couldn’t agree more. Raising funds, gathering a launch team, understanding church governance...the list goes on. So we understand if you feel a bit intimidated by the task.

What is the CPTI?


The CPTI is a four-day, in-person training that consists of teaching with our instructors and discussion with your peers.

You'll receive tools and frameworks to help you plant in a way that's both fruitful in your context, faithful to Jesus, and that follows an Anglican perspective.

You’ll also work through pre-course and post-course material to help you prepare for the training and implement what you learn.


Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

How much does it cost?

$700. A church planter's spouse may attend for free. Additional team member(s) may attend with you for $450.

You also can elect to receive follow-up cohort coaching for an additional $500.

I'm a church planter on a tight budget. Is this worth that much?

We understand money can be tight. But if taken in context, we consider this to be an enormous value—church plant intensives can cost 3-4x as much elsewhere.

We’re also convinced that this course is an absolute must for anyone planting from a sacramental perspective. The average seminary degree in the U.S. costs nearly $20,000, and you can’t find this kind of content in the vast majority of programs.

I’m interested. How can I come up with the money?

We encourage most folks to fundraise what they need to attend the CPTI. Pass this webpage along to some donors who’d have a heart to see you fully trained up for the task.

Who should I talk to if I have more questions?

Your Canon for Church Planting should be able to answer any further questions you may have. But if not, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at planting@anglicanchurch.net.
