We are a family of churches that plant church planting churches.
Our mission as a church is make more and better disciples of Jesus. We believe the best strategy to accomplish that mission is to plant Christ-centered and biblically based churches.
While each of our churches carries out mission in their local contexts, we believe we can plant more churches as a network that plants churches together. So, we commit 10% of all general giving at each of our Terra Nova churches into church planting efforts. In the past decade, Terra Nova has given over $400k into the church planting movement.
In addition to planting Terra Nova Churches, it has been a special privledge of the Terra Nova Network to help plant churches like Grace Road in Rochester, NY; GraceLife in Avon, NY; Axe21 in Sherbrooke and Magog in Quebec, Canada, Nuova Vita in Salerno Italy. Additionally, over our 10-year history at Terra Nova we have been honored that our Senior Pastor, Ed Marcelle, has served by overseeing the Northeast for Acts 29 and we have played a role in nearly 50 churches being planted in the Northeast over the past 10-years through church planting training events and coaching new church planters.
In the days ahead, the Terra Nova Network will be focusing on the development of a church planting residency that we hope will continue the work of planting church planting churches.
