The Team Method of Church Planting
A Practical and Biblical Manual for Church Planting as a Viable Method of Evangelism
Most evangelical churches are active in soul-winning. Relatively few have ever dreamed of actually planting a new church as a viable method of soul-winning. Yet as we trace the evangelistic activities of the apostles in the Book of Acts, we see churches sprouting up wherever there was any significant success in evangelism.
This complete manual, prepared originally as the author’s doctoral thesis, cites the practical basis of church planting and goes on to describe the local church as both a ministry training center and church-planting center. It includes also a section of practical considerations in church planting, seven appendices packed with useful information, and a thorough bibliography.
