Training a New Breed of First Century Church Planters

We're a little different.

We are a network. A brotherhood. A sisterhood. We are a gathering of church planters heeding the call to plant churches in broken places. In 2008 New Breed was formally launched in the UK as an idea. What would happen if planters banded together into a collective to share, train, and learn from one another? Peyton Jones (Author: Reaching The Unreached and Church Zero) and Andrea Jones formed New Breed to catalyze church planters through assessment, training, and coaching. Out of that mission, Jump School and other training was born. Returning home to America, Peyton and Andrea Jones harnessed the principles gleaned from the mission frontiers of post-christian Europe to reach the unreached in the United States and around the world.

We hold to the Nicene Creed


This historic confession has united the church for two thousand years, and is good enough for us.If you hold to it, we can work together. Under that banner, we unite humbly, believing that God flows graciously between all denominations, overlooking our distinctions.


We hold to our distinctives, taken from Ephesians 4, the seedbed of team leadership, and the key to mobilizing the body of Christ:


  • Multi-denominational - “There is one body and one Spirit…one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all” (Eph 4:4-6)
  • Committed to Dark Places - We go to the darkest places “He also descended into the lower regions of the earth” (Eph 4:9)Apostolic Team Ministry - “And he gave the apostles, prophets, evangelists, shepherds, and teachers” (Eph 4:11)
  • Gift Driven - Every believer mobilized in their gifts “to equip the saints for the work of the ministry”  (Eph 4:12)
  • Biblical Fluency - The scriptures are our guide “that we may no longer be children, tossed to and ro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes” (Eph 4:14)
