We will be a network of churches that have the Great Commission; Jesus’ last command as our first priority. 

Church Planting

Only 1% of Australian Churches are planting a new church per annum.

This is not enough!

We are a network which wants to take seriously the missional practice of being sent.

We want to encourage our churches to be churches that plant churches that plant churches.

This means being open to all kinds of expressions of church.  Within A2A there is no one size fits all.

To help facilitate churches become church planting churches we:

  • Encourage churches to engage with the Exponential tribe.
  • Assist churches with the Assessment of potential church planters.
  • Assist the sending church and the church planter with a road map.
  • Assist in helping churches and church planters find the capital needed to kickstart.
  • Provide ongoing coaching to both the sending church and the church plant.


Emerging Leaders Initiative

ELI is A2A’s Leadership Pipeline.  

It is a 2-year immersion leadership experience, focusing on developing the heart, the soul and the will of a  leader.  It is warmly relational.

One of the nuggets of the ELI experience is the exposure of leaders to the breadth and beauty of the Australian church.  The visit to different movements, regions and expressions of the church across the country changes and disrupts leaders narratives of the church.

Through the 2 year journey young leaders are encouraged to actively participate in the Kingdom of God, discovering and finding their place within it.

Community Engagement

Part of being missional is the willingness to incarnationally stay in a local community.

We want to encourage the local communities to compassionately love and to be innovative when it comes to community engagement.
