About

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

The Tennessee Baptist Convention

The Tennessee Baptist Convention is Making Christ Known By Serving Churches

The Tennessee Baptist Convention works with churches and associations to mobilize Tennessee Southern Baptists as a mission force to impact Tennessee, North America and the World with the gospel of Jesus Christ. One of the ways that we accomplish this is through mobilizing and assisting churches to plant churches. The Tennessee Baptist Convention is planting and engaging new churches to reach Tennessee for Christ.

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.
