New Church Development

The Bluegrass District New Church Development (NCD) team would like to reintroduce ourselves, our purpose and our strategy.  We want to make the district aware that we are focused on doing ministry and we look forward to partnering with you as you discern and envision the work God has called you to do.  Please take the time to review our purpose and strategy as you consider ways that we can assist with your God given vision.  

NCD Partnership Policies

NCD Partnership Application


The purpose of the Bluegrass NCD committee is to provide support, accountability, and guidance to churches and church planters who are starting a new church, new campus, new worshiping community, or fresh expression. The team is also responsible for discerning new opportunities, visioning new possibilities, and empowering these possibilities through funding resourcing, and coaching.  

Our Strategy

·        Discerning opportunities    

·        Guiding people who are exploring

·        Supporting and Empowering active New Faith Communities through accountability and resources

·        Releasing or launching successful New Faith Communities

Our team would like to immediately be a resource to your church community by providing assistance with the MissionInsite demographics program provided for free by the Conference. This tool is a great way to use data to help understand your community and the people who live near your church. It has in-depth information and suggestions for ministries that can help you form and launch new ministries.
If you are interested in this, please contact Trent Lloyd at
We look forward to the possibilities for new ministries and growth across our district!
