Roots in Africa
Community Church Planting (CCP) was founded by Bruce Bennett, who pioneered the Village Church Planting program in Africa in the early part of the 21st century while serving as a missionary with OMS South Africa. CCP developed the Community Church Planting program based upon the strategies and principles learned from Africa, but adapted to global and urban contexts.
Between 2003 and 2014, the leadership of CCP oversaw projects in 36 African nations. The work involved partnerships with some 40 different denominations that together initiated over 40,000 churches and meeting groups with a membership of more than of 5 million persons.
Today, CCP is applying the insights gained in Africa and elsewhere to mobilize, train, and consult globally with denominations, other Christian groups, and individuals that have a heart for church planting. CCP's executive director, Bruce Bennett, has cast vision for church planting and assisted with mobilization on five continents. He can be reached through the Contact Us page.
