Thirty years ago, you would have searched hard to find a resource on church planting. There were a few; but one of the first resources to have had broad appeal was The Church Planter’s Toolkit by Bob Logan & Steve Ogne. This work set the standard for all of the church planting resources to follow.
If you conduct a search today on Amazon, you will find more than 1,000 titles on the topic. Many of them are worth reading. Few are worth referring back to again and again.
The Church Planting Journey by Bob Logan is an important read. It is the updated version of “The Toolkit”, You will want to digest this information and refer back to if your are a(n):
- aspiring church planter
- new church planter
- veteran church planter
- parent church leaders
- coach of church planters
I know, church planting feels like it is a new idea. Look into church history and you will find all lasting revivals had a multiplication movement of organic church planting at it’s core. Go further back, you will find the blueprint for the mission of the church in the book of Acts.
With so much literature available today on the topic, I would suggest that, The Church Planting Journey is the one you will want to have on your shelf.
