Within the Twin Cities—Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota—there is only one Southern Baptist church for every 56,839 people. This need for churches has driven North American Mission Board Send City missionary, Jonathan Parnell, to spur a church multiplication movement in and around the cities. Parnell planted Cities Church in 2015, and the church is on pace to plant its fourth church in five years in the Twin Cities.
Jonathan’s goal is to build multiplication into the DNA of other new churches started in the city. Each of those churches then has an impact on their local communities by proclaiming the Gospel and reaching their neighbors.
THE COOPERATIVE PROGRAM is the financial fuel for reaching every person for Jesus Christ in every town, every city, every state, and every nation. Your support through the Cooperative Program provides encouragement and resources that church planters need as they plant and launch new churches in these hard-to-reach areas of the United States.
PRAY for the Parnells’ new church plant(s) to grow and flourish as they minister to surrounding communities. Pray also that more church plants will spring up as a result of this multiplication movement in the area.
