Commission on Church Planting (CoCP)
The Commission on Church Planting (CoCP) is served by Darrell Derksen (Chair, Waldheim, SK); and Greg Guarnett (Langham, SK), Mike Fink (Henderson, NE); and Gordon Reimer (Vita, MB).
We are currently overseeing church plants in Richer, MB; Indian Head, SK; Winkler, MB: and Saskatoon, SK.
The responsibilities of CoCP include:
a. Formulate policies, goals, guidelines and strategies for planting FEBC churches in North America.
b. Work with regional extension committees in carrying out the church planting projects and programs that have been designed and implemented.
c. Ensure that FEBC policies and guidelines are respected in carrying out church planting.
d. Encourage and assist in the formation of regional extension committees in areas where such a body does not exist.
e. Select and supervise leadership to carry out church planting work in areas without a regional extension committee or mother church.
f. Approve pastoral personnel for FEBC church planting projects prior to a call being issued. The Commission on Churches shall examine and recommend such personnel to the delegate body, and assume the responsibility for pastoral discipline, as with all other pastors.
g. Recommend the allocation of FEBC funds for church planting activities carried out by the commission, regional extension committees and churches.
