Planting a church? Need resources? The General Association of Regular Baptist Churches promotes church planting and assists church planters. Numerous benefits are available to church plants that fellowship in the GARBC. Apply for fellowship (one-page application) and access GARBC resources available to your church plant.
Check out the resources available to church plants in the GARBC:
- 501c3 IRS tax exempt blanket coverage.
- Grants and loans through the GARBC ministry of Baptist Builders Club. Upon approval of an application submitted by a church, the BBC–USA Start Up Fund grants up to $55,000, including up to three years of service, support, and financial assistance. Resources such as website design, brochure design and printing costs, and Regular Baptist Press curriculum and teacher/leader training are available.
