ARC works with church planters and leaders to provide support, guidance and resources to launch and grow life-giving churches. The Shore Church is church plant number 239! Today, some of ARC’s church plants have become the largest and fastest-growing churches in the USA. Thousands of people make a decision to follow Christ and are baptized in ARC church plants every year. ARC church plants give over $15 million each year to missions. ARC’s global impact is growing rapidly, through hubs like ARC Ireland, ARC Australia, ARC Canada, ARC South Africa, ARC Netherlands, ARC Italy, ARC Asia, ARC Brazil and more being formed continually. Having planted over 800 churches, and with hundreds more partner churches, ARC has become not only a movement, but a collection of many “tribes” – all with a focus to see a life-giving church in every community in the world.


Living in Southwest Florida, we are all too familiar with hurricanes. Just last year we were hit by Hurricane Irma. We know the devastation and loss these storms can bring, so our only natural response to Hurricanes hitting the coast is to jump in and help! First we send financial resources to a partner church of ours where the storm lands and then we send a trailer that you as a church pack full.
