Christ’s people should, as occasion requires, organize such associations and conventions as may best secure cooperation for the great objects of the Kingdom of God. Such organizations have no authority over one another or over the churches. They are voluntary and advisory bodies designed to elicit, combine, and direct the energies of our people in the most effective manner. Members of New Testament churches should cooperate with one another in carrying forward the missionary, educational, and benevolent ministries for the extension of Christ’s Kingdom.
Therefore, we have partnered in cooperation with the following:
The Praetorian Project is a network of churches united by the same mission: To know Jesus and make Him known by a dedication to planting healthy, gospel-centered churches outside of U.S. military installations.
In addition to a common mission, Praetorian Project member churches maintain unity regarding their name, Southern Baptist Convention affiliation, statement of faith, and other theological convictions. Praetorian Project churches are all named “Pillar Church of (location).” A full list can be found here: Find a Pillar Church.
Established in 2011 under the leadership of Dr. Jack Graham, the Prestonwood Network exists to resource and encourage pastors while working together to plant and revitalize churches.
The Network is relationship-based and consists completely of Kingdom partnerships including: former Prestonwood staff that are now lead pastors, pastors that have a relationship with Prestonwood Church, and church plants that have been supported in the past. These are all part of the Prestonwood Network.
