The Incubator Collective is a church planting program designed to train church planters serving in New York City’s five boroughs, as well as New York City-facing urban centers. The program combines elements of City to City’s proven church planting curriculum with new insights from multicultural leaders who understand the nuances of ministry in New York’s boroughs. The result is a two-year program that provides practical tools for starting and growing a congregation that is grounded in the gospel and rooted in its neighborhood.
Incubator Collective is configured for day and evening schedules to support full-time and co-vocational church planters working in the center city, gentrifying, and marginalized communities. The program meets monthly (for a full day session) or biweekly (2 evenings per month) in Year One. Year two includes intensives on topics such as Discipleship, Evangelism & Outreach, etc. The program contains three primary elements:
