THE HISTORY OF ONE FOCUS
One Focus Network launched July 1, 2017 to advance life-giving churches throughout the United States and around the world. Its rich history comes from the strong foundation of two former church networks — Grace Network and New Life Ministries International.
Unity of vision, mission, leadership, and finances enables congregations to make a more significant impact than any of the congregations could make on their own.
One Focus Network consists of churches, missionaries, and trans-local ministries. Our hearts beat with a passion for Christ and the expansion of the Kingdom of God throughout the world making disciples of all nations.

equip --> prepare --> launch
Our neighborhoods, cities, and regions need a host of diverse life-giving churches. One Focus is committed to seeing churches planted all throughout the world via dynamic Apostolic oversight and deeply satisfying relationships.
Comprehensive training and preparation is essential. The task is great and a clear process and launching mechanism are required. CORE is that training mechanism.
The timeframe for completion varies by candidate. The entire process can be completed as quickly as 9 months for a candidate who is motivated and well-equipped to pioneer a new church. For other candidates, however, the process may take 12-24 months.
Ideally, the church planting candidate will come from a sponsoring One Focus Network church. It is possible for a candidate to come from the “outside” with no prior One Focus affiliation. In those cases, the initiate and educate stages are even more critical to ensure connection and participation in OFN.
CORE follows an 8 stage process:
Understand the calling
Discover, analyze, and train
ARC coaching and OFN equipping
Assemble church plant team
Matching and loan program
Licensing, sending, and launch service
Post-launch coaching and trouble-shooting
leadership training initiative
Impact weekends training.
Impact weekends are inspiring, relevant, and intensely practical. The instruction includes interactive lectures, videos, Q & A, and small group discussions. The teaching and training is lead by various One Focus Network pastors and leaders.
The relationships forged in each cohort will prove as vital as the skills and insights acquired. This allows leaders from One Focus congregations to learn from each other and aid in forming relationships that bond congregations together.
8 weekends over a 2 year span

church refinement initiative
Thrive weekends bring One Focus to your congregation.
The goal is to help each church re-strategize, re-evaluate, and re-focus their ministry. This will take place over a span of three weekends that will include a series of conversations, data gathering, observations of ministry, and prayer. These weekend will take place on sight and will include interactions with the churches staff, eldership, and lay leadership. This is to help provide an accurate sense and recommendations based on relationship formation and insight gained by on-sight interactions.
We believe that through these weekends, that OFN will be able to provide apostolic, pastoral, and prophetic insight into the church’s most current setting. Thrive will focus on providing insight and guidance in three primary areas of the church: Leadership, Structure, and Ministry.
