About

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

Vision Arizona

We are a group of churches committed to helping other biblically conservative churches get started in the greater Phoenix area. We offer funding, extensive coaching and have a track record of over 90% successes. We are associated with the church planting organization Converge Southwest.

Why Vision Arizona?

Rapid Growth

Right now, the Phoenix metro area is one of the fastest-growing cities in the nation. Thousands of people who need the Gospel are moving in every month.

Leadership Cohort

Church planting can seem lonely but with Vision Arizona, you are surrounded by a close network of church leaders who have walked in your shoes and are walking with you.

Healthy Growth

In the last two decades, our church planting model has proven to work. We provide you with the resources and guidance you will need to lead a healthy, growing church.

Arizona is Awesome

People come from thousands of miles to visit because of our weather, golf, foodie scene and amazing sunsets. Imagine how awesome it is to live here!

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.
