Seminary Trained – NETS requires an MDiv or equivalent degree. We know you don’t need a seminary education to plant a church, but our program builds on the knowledge and skills gleaned through seminary. Students are encouraged to begin the application process early in their seminary career.
Evangelistic & Reformed – Our church planters are distinctly Reformed and solidly evangelistic, men who affirm God’s sovereignty in salvation, and trust in the power and sufficiency of gospel proclamation to effect that salvation.
Humble & Confident – NETS is looking for humble yet confident servant leaders, men who will step up and lead while laying down their lives for the flock. We’re also looking for men with a teachable spirit, open to and eager for input.
Robust & Resilient – New England church planters work long hours and face significant trials. They must be physically, mentally and emotionally strong.
