Millions living in North America have not been reached with the gospel. Arizona's rapid growth provides a unique opportunity and urgent need for church planters to create change in unreached neighborhoods.

Why Church Planting?
The Bible charges all believers to spread the gospel. Through his words in Matthew 28: 19-20 and Acts 1:8, Jesus sends his disciples to replicate themselves through the power of the Holy Spirit around the world. We believe that the most effective evangelistic strategy to fulfill this mission is planting new churches.
The primary purpose of church planting in the Arizona Southern Baptist Convention is to help Southern Baptist churches and associations spread the gospel of Jesus Christ by planting healthy, reproducing churches with evangelistic passion among all peoples in Arizona. In order to do this to the best of our ability, we work closely with Send Network, the church planting arm of the North American Mission Board.
Send Network Arizona
Send Network Arizona has a desire to come along established churches to plant churches everywhere, for everyone. We exist to help churches examine where pockets of people are that do not have relationship with Jesus and start Southern Baptist churches. We do this by helping churches develop leader and missional residencies all over the state of Arizona. With over 300 people a day moving into our state, we need to start a minimum of one church every day to keep up with our growing population.
