San Diego Church Plant Movement (SDCPM) exists to change the spiritual landscape of San Diego County through local churches working together to plant healthy, reproducing churches.

Since our inception in 2013, we have partnered with church planters to plant seven new churches in San Diego County by 2019.

Movement of Networks and Partners

How We Do It


The unified, collaborative effort and commitment of an ever-growing number of established churches to plant new churches throughout San Diego County. It’s the common mission for spiritual renewal of all people in San Diego that brings us together.


Our vision is to have two types of networks in our movement.

Specific Church Plant Network

A grouping of 3 to 8 local churches working together to plant a single new church. This strategic network provides varying combinations of resources to help a new church plant.

Regional Relational Network

A gathering of pastors and leaders from churches in a specific area (North, South, East and Central San Diego) to encourage and foster church multiplication.


A local church that commits to SDCPM’s vision by investing $5,000 annually. Every dollar invested stays in San Diego for the benefit of a new church plant.

Unity Without Uniformity

While being diverse in our church expressions and affiliations, we are unified around the vision of church multiplication. All gospel-centered churches and denominational affiliations are welcome in this movement.

Our movement is aligned around the following four core values:


We believe we can do more together
than we can do on our own.


We are committed to helping our churches
reproduce at every level of ministry.


We provide resources to equip and empower
new churches to thrive and multiply.


We train future church planters through
local leadership residency.

Strategic Relationships

The following organizations offer tools and services to help SDCPM fulfill our vision and start new churches.

GLI Church Planting helps leaders to create “come as you are” churches with tools to assess and develop church planting.

New Thing helps church leaders launch and lead local networks of churches that collaborate to plant and multiply even more healthy churches.

Stadia offers comprehensive support at every stage of church planting from assessment, residency, project management, bookkeeping and post-launch support.

We help people & churches Flourish into the fullness of who they were created to be so they can join God in flourishing our city and world.

City to City‘s vision is to see 100 healthy missional leaders planting and leading 100 missional churches that will change the trajectory of darkness in the city by 2030.
