MEv 142 Why Plant Churches? Theological and Practical Reasons


Many have written on the ‘how to’s of creating new Christian congregations and forms of church but often neglect the fundamental question of why it is necessary in the first place. What is so important about church planting? Why not focus on building up existing congregations?

This compelling booklet by a published expert with years of ministry experience in the field will be helpful for leaders and church study groups. It explores the theological and practical reasons for everyone to reconsider priorities and to discover the benefits of involvement with planting new churches.
