Eastview’s Domestic Church Planting Strategy focuses on church planting in some of the least-reached post-modern areas of our country. We have a church planting partnership in New York City and San Diego. Our goal is to partner with new church plants that are healthy and relevant in their context to foster revival. Eastview is currently looking towards a 3rd plant in NYC and helping with a 4th plant in San Diego.

Our partner church in Harlem is Renaissance Church. Renaissance is a church plant through Orchard Group Church planting. Eastview made a commitment several years to help plant 5 churches in New York City. The Lead Pastors of the church are Jordan and Jessica Rice. It has been a gift to be a part of what God is doing in Harlem through Renaissance. To learn more about Renaissance visit their website here


Our partner church in San Diego is Rise City Church. The Lead Pastor of Rise City is Brandon Grant. Brandon was formerly on staff with Eastview leading the college ministry. Brandon and his family felt a call to California start a church. Since Rise City's launch, they have had vision of starting 10 reproducing churches in San Diego along with 10 reproducing churches internationally in the next 10 years. Eastview is privileged to be a part of the work of Rise City. To learn more visit their website at


Our newest partner church is The Gathering in Harlem. Launching in the fall of 2017, The Gathering is also a plant church through Orchard Group. Lead Planter Kenny Hart and his wife Shanika share the vision for this church and Harlem as: A Harlem where everyone is dignified, because justice, love, and mercy are present. Their mission is to build bridges that lead to reconciliation. Learn more at
