For many church leaders, struggling to cope with internal problems, church planting does not even appear on the agenda of things to be considered. But - how do we reach this lost generation in which we have been placed? Multiplying Churches, written from Acts 29's years of experience, unpacks how church plants can be used not only to reach people with the Gospel, but to encourage an entire church family to be actively involved in doing so. This serves as a timely reminder that mission needs to be our identity rather than our event.

From the heights of biblical theology, to the plains of who does what, these brief chapters are again and again both practical and wise. I happily commend this book.

Multiplying Churches provides a biblical foundation and theological parameters for church planting activities. Read it prayerfully with your Bible in hand, then make application to your life and ministry!

Fifteen years ago, the church planting movement was in its infancy. Today, many things have been learned but new challenges lie ahead. Therefore I am glad for the new edition of this book, in which those early lessons can be reviewed and the new horizons faced.

Multiplying churches through church planting movements involves warfare and wisdom. Multiplying Churches addresses well both of these and I delight in commending it to those willing to be on the front lines.
