Starting New Churches

Reaching More People

Why do we need more churches? Because we want to reach more people and starting new churches is the best way to reach new people. We believe a great city like Denver deserves more great churches – which is we are actively helping start new churches across the Front Range.

Mountainview provides financial, administrative, and programming support to several churches around Denver.

Front Range Christian Church

New Churches and Campuses

With help from churches throughout Colorado, Mountainview began as a new church in 1992.

It’s not hard to understand why starting new churches is a part of our DNA — we believe church planting is the single most effective way to help lost people find their way back to God.

Through our partnership with Church Planters of the Rockies (CPR), we have helped start over 30 new churches in 22 years.  These churches are as close as Aurora and as far away as Texas (OK, Ukraine and Peru might be a bit further than Texas).

In addition to our ongoing support of church planting through CPR, we continue to seek God’s direction for the addition of Mountainview satellite campuses throughout the South Denver metro.
