FHC Network

The FHC Network was established to mobilize people to plant, revitalize, and replant churches while supporting pastors.

Ephesians 3:20-21 (ESV)

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.


Goals of the FHC Network

3-30 Vision

Church Revitalization—Develop and lead a cohort of pastors who are leaders of churches in need of Revitalization. Partner with the NAMB, SBC of Virginia, other State Conventions, and local associations to identify and connect with churches and pastors in need of revitalization. The goal would be to help revitalize 3 churches by 2030.

Church Replanting—Identify, train, and mentor pastors who are called to replant churches. Partner with the NAMB, SBC of Virginia, other State Conventions, and local associations to identify and connect with churches that are in a replant situation. The goal would be to replant 3 churches by 2030.

Church Planting—Identify, train, and mentor those called to church planting. Once a relationship is established with the church planter, Franklin Heights will work alongside him to plant a church. The goal would be to plant 3 churches by 2030.

Mentoring and Encouraging Pastors—Identify, mentor, and encourage pastors who are discouraged, burnt out, or just need encouragement.
