church planting collective live 

At InFocus we know you want to be an effective church planter.

In order to do that, you need a coach to help you navigate the unforeseen challenges of launching a church.  Someone with experience coaching church planters.

The problem is you lack experience which makes you feel overwhelmed, afraid and doubtful you might not have what it takes to plant a church.

We believe it shouldn’t be a heart-rending struggle to fulfill the Great Commission, especially when God is in it.

We understand how challenging and lonely it can feel which is why for over thirty years we’ve been getting in the trenches with church planters to equip them with the tools to be successful.
