Exploring Godís Mission Strategy

An Acts 29 title
Church planting as community mission
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.
Steve Timmis lives in Sheffield where he is a pastor in The Crowded House. He is the Executive Director of Acts 29, a diverse global family of church planting churches. He and his wife, Janet, have four married children and, currently, nine grandchildren.

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.
Tim Keller, Senior Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City, New York
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.
Daniel L. Akin, President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, Wake Forest, North Carolina
This is not another "how to" book. The authors fully recognise the unique centrality of the church in God's purposes. I hope its intention of stirring us to radical thinking and acting will be fully realised.
Jonathan Stephen, Principal, Wales Evangelical School of Theology, Bridgend, Wales
In Multiplying Churches, the authors lay out a vision for church planting that is gospel rich, but helpful and practical.
Ed Stetzer, Billy Graham Chair, Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois
Church Planting must be the priority of all Christians. ... Steve Timmis has done us all a favour by bringing together these different contributions which illustrate to us not only the uniqueness of our message and the importance of the task but also the many different ways in which God works in people's lives.
