Starting New Churches

New Church Development (NCD) is a committed team of individuals who have the skills and knowledge to support, equip, and release church planters. The team is comprised of a diverse group of Southwest Friends Church leaders who have a passion to see all types of churches planted in the United States of America.

When you participate with Southwest Friends, you become part of our family and can be confident that you are not alone.
