This custom version of the Church Planter Profiles website has been created as a partnership between SoCal Network and Gateway Leadership Initiative to help potential leadership candidates and future pastors discover their aptitude and readiness for church planting quickly and easily in an online environment.

SoCal Network

The SoCal Network (Assemblies of God) plants churches from California’s Central Valley to the border with Mexico, from the mountains to the beaches. Over 17 million people live in urban, suburban, and even rural areas… and the vast majority do not know Jesus Christ. It is also the home to many ethnic groups and languages. We know that one of the most effective ways to reach this diverse group of people is through planting healthy thriving multi-ethnic churches. We do this through assessing, training, coaching, and resourcing church planters and plants. What better place to plant a church than where there are millions of people who need Jesus and a good church.

Gateway Leadership Initiative

Gateway Leadership Initiative's vision is to mobilize thousands of leaders to start new churches out of the culture - churches molded from messy people rising up out of the culture to become the Body of Christ. Our efforts are focused on:
  • Inspiring leaders to start new churches out of the culture.
  • Discovering leaders with the ability and experience needed for church planting.
  • Equipping leaders for starting new churches formed out of the culture.
  • Multiplying new churches as part of the reproducing movement.
