WHAT WE DO
CEM facilitates new church planting by partnering with existing churches around our region. From assessment, training, to project management, CEM helps planters prepare for the successful launch of a new church.
CEM invests in church health by offering an in-person process that helps church leaders develop and implement a renewed church vision and the strategic goals to meet that vision. CEM-hosted conferences, podcasts, and resources are also purposed for church health.
CEM connects ministry leaders with development opportunities, especially geared for those in small-to-mid-size churches. Whether it is mentoring, coaching, or networking in small groups, CEM is the touchpoint to connect leaders with the resources they need.
