What is the Triangle Church Planting Network?
TCPN is a church planting network that partners with local churches and church planting organizations to plant churches in the Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill areas. We exist to support and plant healthy New Testament churches and make Jesus famous in our city, region, nation, and world (Mt 28:19-20 & Acts 1:8).
Who leads the TCPN?
Jimmy Carroll // President // E-mail Jimmy (jimmytrianglecpnorg)
Jimmy Carroll serves as the president of TCPN and the lead pastor of Journey Church in Raleigh, NC. In December of 2004, God called Jimmy to plant a local church in North Raleigh with the vision of helping people follow Jesus and with the desire to make Jesus famous in the Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill areas (The Triangle). The TCPN was born out of that vision. Jimmy believes that the best way to reach our city is by planting local churches through calling, training, and coaching church planters on how to plant local churches of all denominations in the Triangle. Jimmy gives overall direction and vision to TCPN.
