1. What is the Koinonia Network?

The Koinonia Network (KN) is a collection of churches and leaders who partner together to multiply Gospel-formed, healthy churches and leaders.

2. Who can be a church planter?

We’re looking for humble, team-oriented, Kingdom-minded leaders who sense God’s calling to plant new churches. An interview and assessment process is used to help identify if a candidate is a good fit to plant a future church for the KN.

3. Is there a fee to apply to be a church planter with KN?

There is no fee to go through the application and assessment process. Should you continue through the process, the KN will cover all of your costs.

4. Where does the KN plant churches?

Currently all of the KN churches are in East TN, but there is no artificial boundary for a future KN church.

5. What is the benefit of planting with the KN?

Leading a church is not only challenging, but can be a lonely endeavor. As a church planter with the KN, you begin with a group of likeminded leaders who want to help you launch in the healthiest way possible. You will be surrounded with other established church planters, who are in your corner. The KN is partnership of churches and leaders. We don’t do Lone Ranger church planting.

6. Does the KN pay the church planter's salary or does the church planter have to fundraise?

Both. The KN will pay up to 85% of the church planter’s salary with the expectation that the church planter will need to raise the additional 15% as well as start up costs.

7. Why would I plant with the KN versus other church planting networks?

There are many great church planting networks that we cheer on. The KN is unique because we have a vision for diverse, contextualized churches and maintain an ongoing partnership with leaders and churches.
