The Engage NetworkSaylorville’s vision is to be a church-planting church. To this end, we are engaged in training, equipping, and sending out our members to strengthen existing churches and start new congregations that will reach more people with the Gospel.

Engage is a network of fellowshipping churches throughout Iowa which currently includes Saylorville Church of North Des Moines, Lakeside Fellowship in Polk City, Living Waters Fellowship of South Des Moines, High Pointe Church in Altoona and Redeemer Church in Winterset. Started by Saylorville in 2005, our goal is to plant churches out of our own churches, while encouraging each church to remain Gospel centered and evangelistically active. We do this through regular pastoral meetings and occasional all-church events.

Check out the sites below to see what God is doing through ministries that have been started through our church planting vision.
