This custom version of the Church Planter Profiles website has been created as a partnership between NewThing and Gateway Leadership Initiative to help potential leadership residents discover their aptitude and readiness for church planting quickly and easily in an online environment.


NewThing is a catalyst for movements of reproducing churches relentlessly dedicated to helping people find their way back to God. NewThing helps leaders, churches, and church planters plant healthy reproducing churches to achieve the Jesus Mission (Acts 1:8).

Every time we plant a church or help another church start a church we…

  • Reach out to those who are far from God
  • Restore God’s dream for the world and
  • Reproduce the Jesus Mission in others.

Gateway Leadership Initiative

Gateway Leadership Initiative's vision is to mobilize thousands of leaders to start new churches out of the culture - churches molded from messy people rising up out of the culture to become the Body of Christ. Our efforts are focused on:
  • Inspiring leaders to start new churches out of the culture.
  • Discovering leaders with the ability and experience needed for church planting.
  • Equipping leaders for starting new churches formed out of the culture.
  • Multiplying new churches as part of the reproducing movement.
