Moving Forward CFTN

God is ready to accomplish the unfinished business he has for our lives, families, churches, cities and nations.

Moving Forward

Our mission here at Church on the Rock International (COTRI) is EMPOWERING LEADERS TO TRANSFORM NATIONS. God has birthed this movement and He is ready to move it to the next level of His purpose and plan. As the elected leader of COTRI, I believe that my task for this great movement is to allow God to FINISH WHAT HE’S BEGUN. COTRI was birthed as a PRAYER and CHURCH PLANTING movement and has been under the tremendous leadership of Dr. Lawrence Kennedy for over 20 years.

In the next few years, COTRI plans on working with apostolic leaders to PLANT THOUSANDS OF CHURCHES IN AMERICA AND AROUND THE WORLD because it’s in our spiritual DNA to do so! We are inviting you and your leadership team to participate in our Moving Forward Conference where we will be sharing the vision for COTRI, renewing relationships, offering a broad range of workshops and powerful services. Man, am I excited for what God’s about to do! God bless you!
In His great love,

Dr. Michael Maiden
President of Church on the Rock International
Lead Pastor at Church for the Nations

Empowering leaders to transform nations.

CFTN Pathway To Leadership

With courses such as Elements, REWIND, On Your Mark and Stepping Into Leadership…  We prepare those interested in moving into local ministry and beyond.

Prophetic Impartation

Pastor Jim Wies

In the Prophetic Ministry workshop we will be providing prophetic ministry to the recipients by proven and credible ministry teams operating in the gift of prophecy. This workshop will not be teaching or training about prophetic ministry, but rather an opportunity for the recipients to receive personal prophecy into their life and ministries.

Church Planting Strategies

If you feel called to plant a church or are already leading a congregation (or network) and sense God leading you to plant more local churches, this session is just for you. This breakout will provide an overview of core strategies, processes and synergistic networks utilized by COTRI to empower pastors and local congregations to plant region-transforming local churches.

Leadership Training and Development

Dr. Allen McCray

The Pastoral Service Center provides leadership development, and counseling; life coaching certifications and mentoring for CFTN members, as well as the business community and other pastors and churches.

This workshop will show you how this department has brought consistency to the training and development of CFTN leadership.

Supernatural School of Ministry

Marla Monk

CFTN SSOM is an equipping school where our mission is to prepare people for their mountain(s) of influence in dynamic, yet incredibly practical ways.  Our students learn how to cultivate and engage with the presence of God, develop their spiritual giftings, discover and enhance their leadership abilities, embrace soul healing and transformation, and love unreservedly.  This is not just a school of learning; it is a school of experience, where everything that is taught is being lives out in the personal and community life of CFTN.
