Planting Churches: A Framework for Practitioners

Published by Paternoster in October 2008, Stuart Murray’s new book offers church planters and those who deploy and support them an introduction to the issues involved in planting new churches.

Intended for those involved in emerging churches and fresh expressions of church, as well as more traditional church planters, Planting Churches draws on the author’s thirty years experience as a practitioner, trainer and consultant.

Why plant churches? How? Where? When? Who can be a church planter? What kinds of churches should be planted? These are some of the questions practitioners face. Planting Churches does not offer prescriptive answers but a framework for addressing these and other questions in various contexts.
