We are a multi-ethnic, multi-denominational team of leaders from local churches partnering with one another to plant churches in chicago.

Our mission is to catalyze a church planting ecosystem in the city of Chicago by identifying, confirming, supporting and deploying new church planters, with the goal of participating in planting 100 new churches by 2025.


CHurch Planting GRANTS

We provide grants for confirmed church planters. The Chicago Partnership works in concert with other funding entities providing matching grants to help with a successful launch to a new church plant.

INCUBATOR COHORT

Our Incubator Cohort offers high quality, gospel-centered, relational church planting training over a two-year period, with opportunities for additional one-on-one coaching.

EVENTS

We help to bring pastors, Christian leaders and planters together on gospel issues facing our city. We have been privileged to learn from a wide variety of leaders including Eric Mason, Philip Jensen, Francis Chan, Mark Jobe and others.

The Chicago Partnership resourced me with loving friendship, invaluable coaching and training, strategic financial generosity, and recommending their friends and congregations to join us. We are now financially self-sustaining and look forward to when our church can begin investing kingdom money, people and coaching in The Chicago Partnership. It is one of the best investments in the Kingdom of God in Chicago, by far.
— Aaron Damiani, Immanuel Anglican Church
Urban church planting can feel like a daunting task. For this reason, we are so grateful for The Chicago Partnership for offering us coaching and training along with prayer and financial support. By walking alongside of us in this journey, The Chicago Partnership has been a source of encouragement and a regular reminder that we are not alone.
— Eric Rivera, The Brook

The Chicago Partnership was instrumental in helping me find local coaching, fellow church planters, and long-term stability in Chicago. Don’t try to plant without it.
