Meet Our Church Planters

More than 70 church planters, church planting multipliers, and church planting apprentices are partnered with SBC of Virginia to spread the Gospel in Virginia and Washington, DC.*

Many of these planters are looking for churches and individuals to partner and pray with them as they carry out the difficult task of planting a church and making disciples.

Through each church planter’s profile below, you can learn how you or your church can partner with them through prayer, financial support, summer mission trips, and much more. Included in most profiles is a downloadable prayer card that can be printed to keep on your fridge, in your prayer journal, or distribute to your church or prayer group.

*Due to security concerns, we are unable to list all of our planters below. Please pray for our planters who are reaching out to people groups hostile to the Gospel.
