After serving as a minister for 30 years at four different churches, Phil Johnsey began the process to find what God had in mind for the last chapter of his ministry. After eleven months of prayer and Bible study, Phil felt led to start a ministry with the goal of planting 500 churches in fifteen years. His vision was to network churches of different denominations who are serious about mission work to serve together and provide resources to bring the gospel to Africa through church plants. 

Church Missions Network (CMN) exists to bring hope through the good news of God's love by strategically connecting humans to humans and churches to churches to accomplish more together than any of them could do alone.
