All new RCA church plants must complete a New Congregation Plan. This prayerful planning process will help you think through the steps your church plant needs to become an organized church. Church plants must have an approved New Congregation Plan before they can apply for grants and loans through the RCA and to be eligible to come under the non-profit umbrella of the RCA.
