In many ways, planting a new church has proven to be the most effective approach to conversion growth in the kingdom of God. Much of what is called church growth today is merely the transferring of members from one church to another. With the exception of churches that send members to another church to mother a new congregation, most church planters target the unsaved. Their chief objective is to reach the unreached.
Planting and Growing Churches offers practical advice about this exciting venture from individuals who have actually planted and grown churches. They offer step-by-step guidance for those with a burden to expand the kingdom of God through this approach. Not all are called to this type ministry, but for those who are, this book is a treasure trove of inspiration and motivation
