There is very little difference between one who cannot
read and one who will not read.”
I believe pastors and especially church panters need to be life-long learners. Here is a list of some my favorite books on church planting and church revitalization. Some of them you may know and hopefully read. Others, I hope you will find interesting enough to purchase and engulf. Happy reading!
Planting Missional Churches: Your Guide to Starting Churches that Multiply by Ed Stetzer and Daniel Im
In this second edition of Planting Missional Churches, not only will you find a completely redesigned book with new content in every single chapter, but you will also find several new chapters on topics such as church multiplication, residencies, multi-ethnic ministry, multisite, denominations and networks, and spiritual leadership.

Jesus told His followers that He would build His church, and then He told them to go and make disciples. It’s that simple. We make disciples, and He builds the church.
But today we often get this exactly backward. We work hard to build our churches with programs and promotions while continuing to neglect the essential practice of discipleship. And we wonder why we struggle. In WikiChurch, Steve Murrell shows you how anyone can make disciples through the simple process of…
· Engaging culture and community
· Establishing spiritual foundations
· Equipping believers to minister
· Empowering disciples to make disciples
Imagine if every believer, not just leaders, was actively engaged in your ministry. That’s the Book of Acts. That’s a WikiChurch.
