Launching a Reproducing Network (LARN) is a premier coaching opportunity for influential leaders interested in starting and leading a network of reproducing churches. 

The goal of the training is to help leaders start new, reproducing networks of churches. To do this, we want to help you grow in your understanding of movements while providing you practical insights on how to lead one. 

NewThing provides content while working alongside each church to create a specific Action Plan for its context.

"LARN has come along at just the right time for us and we couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the movement. Tom did an unbelievable job and walked us through the entire process of establishing a focus and then leaving us with an action plan.  Honestly, I think this should be a part of every new network that is starting up.  Tom said that he is going to train people at our next one on his process and we are all over that.  This process is such a helpful tool in getting the network off the ground and for bringing others into the vision.  The other churches that have had little NewThing contact left really inspired and on board for the vision.  I cannot recommend it highly enough.

“LARN was the help we needed to get from good intentions to actually start planting churches. The program provides great, practical tools and core practices built on years of experience and through teaching and a relational framework. This is a great tool both to take the next step in becoming a reproducing church and grow as a leader. Besides that, these guys are fun to hang around!”

"LARN was the perfect catalyst for helping our team take the next steps towards becoming a more effective reproducing church. The monthly cohort provided the content and accountability needed for us to identify the next steps in our context under the guidance of seasoned and current practitioners. It was an amazing experience that I highly recommend for anyone interested church multiplication."

“The LARN experience, for us in Warsaw, Poland, was an opportunity to not only learn from incredible leaders, but also afforded us the opportunity to bring four independent churches together to discuss practically how we can reach our city and multiply our churches. While LARN had great content through materials and resources, it is the action steps that made LARN truly impactful. You are put into a situation where you are motivated to execute, and for us, that is the power of LARN.”
