The purpose of this project was to equip The Summit Church to reach its goal of planting one thousand churches by 2050. This project consisted of three goals. The first goal was to assess how well the vision for planting one thousand churches by 2050 is being infused into the DNA of The Summit Church. The second goal was to develop a strategic plan to see this vision fulfilled. The third goal was to develop a church planting manual for The Summit Church.

Chapter 1 describes the ministry context of The Summit Church. This first chapter also explains the rationale, goals, and research methodology of the project. Chapter 2 examines the biblical and theological basis for this project. After studying the theme of multiplication in the Old Testament, this paper studies what the gospel, Jesus, the book of Acts, and Paul say about church planting. Chapter 3 considers the philosophical shifts The Summit Church has made to enable churches to be planted. Chapter 4 provides details of the implementation of the three goals. Finally, Chapter 5 offers analysis of the three goals and an evaluation of the project.
