Like any great movement, the Church Multiplication Training Center grew out of a bold vision of seeing waves of fully prepared and intensely passionate planters starting new churches and raising up harvesters for every denomination committed to building the Kingdom of God.
History of the CMTC
The foundation and early development for The Church Multiplication Training Center began in the summer of 1991. Bill Malick, then director of church planting for the Western District of the Missionary Church, consulted with Dr. Robert Logan and Steve Ogne (Church Resource Ministries), George Bama (Barna Research), Fred King (C&MA) and Robert Ransom (Missionary Church) concerning the need for a training program for church planters.
The first CMTC BootCamp was held in Estes Park, Colorado in October of 1992. Thirty-five people representing 12 new church plants from seven denominations attended. From one BootCamp in 1992, the CMTC has now trained over 5000 church planting projects for and with over 100 denominations. Training is presented in English, Spanish and Korean languages.
The CMTC is
incorporated in the state of Indiana as a non-profit corporation with 501 (c)(3) status
