Meet Hunter & Nikki Sipe

Earlier this year, God orchestrated conversations between Hunter and pastor Todd about a growing interest in church planting through partnership with East North Church. Within just a few months, the door opened for Hunter to participate in a one year Church Planting residency with East North Church and the Acts29 Southeast Network.

Hunter will serve at East North Church as the Family Minister, while developing a vision and plan of action for a church plant in Columbus, Ohio in 2020. Several exploratory trips are planned in the coming months to determine what God is up to in the Columbus area. Additionally, formal training will be offered through partnerships with the Acts29 Southeast development school.

The venture of church planting requires financial support, and that need begins with helping Hunter raise $10,000 for his residency year and travel in 2019.

Phase 1 - Residency & Travel in 2019 - $10,000

Phase 2 - Move to Columbus & Core Team Development - $50,000

Phase 3 - Launch & Lead first year of church - $100,000

Phase 4 - Church plant to established church - $$$ TBD
