Examines the biblical criteria for the man, the message, andthe mission behind every church plant. Much of what is written about church planting aims at methodologyand strategy for facing such challenges, but specific strategies donot apply to every context. What lies deeper, at the heart of every church plant? The mostcritical human component of every church plant is theplanter. Darrin Patrick, vicepresident of the Acts 29 Church Planting Network, looks at whatScripture teaches about this manrs"s character, his teaching,and the aim of his church. Offering guidance and wisdom from yearsof experience, Patrick reminds us that ultimately no church willsucceed apart from a man with a message who leads a church on amission. This book is for everyChristian leader. ChurchPlanter is an essential resourcefor those considering planting a church or already in such a plant,and maybe even more important for those leading an establishedchurch. It has wide-ranging application for elders andleadership teams seeking to better understand how the gospel musttake root in their church. Avoiding an over-emphasis on particularmodels or methods, Patrick lays out biblical principles and soundwisdom as he urges the church to return to biblical criteria fordetermining the man, the message, and the mission God uses to buildhis church.
