Want to Develop Leaders in Your Church? Use the NAMB/NOBTS Multiplication Pipeline!


In order to see a multiplying church planting movement take place, there must be a pathway for churches to discover, develop, and deploy church planters and church planting teams. Currently, we have more resources available than planters and planting teams to send. There has never been a greater time for churches to think strategically about raising up church planters and church planting team members.

Over the last two years the North American Mission board has been working to develop and make available resources to help churches raise up leaders from within. The hope is that through discovering leaders and developing them, churches would be able to deploy teams of missionaries locally, nationally and globally.

 The Multiplication Pipeline is a resource to help your church discover, develop, and deploy disciples who make disciples. Having used it for the last two years, I cannot be more impressed with the content, ease of use, and results of the Multiplication Pipeline. It is a game changer for a local church serious about raising up the next generation of leaders.  

 The Multiplication Pipeline is designed to train potential church planters, church planter team members, and missional leaders! This will benefit any church looking to develop missional leaders within a local church context. Through this pathway, our hope is that churches discover their own missional leaders who could be catalytic in creating a culture of disciples who make disciples, or be future church planters and church planting team members to be sent out across North America.

The Training has 3 levels that will help the student develop more in areas such as spiritual formation, biblical knowledge, missional living, missional leadership, disciple-making, church planting call, models of church planting, etc. You can download user guides on the Multiplication Pipeline to review content.

The North American Mission Board is thrilled to not only have a resource like the Multiplication Pipeline but to be in partnership with the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary to offer course credit hours for undergraduate and graduate students going through the NAMB Multiplication Pipeline.
