Within these pages are the notes and lectures I gave as a teacher of church planting. I have had experience in church planting in three different levels:As the member of a brand new church plantAs the pastor being sent out of his church to plant a new churchAs the pastor of the sending church of a man pastoring a new church plantI've seen this work from many different viewpoints, have sat in on multiple hours of sermons, lessons and messages on church planting and I have served as the sending pastor of church planters with many different talents, temperaments and tools with which to start. I cannot say that we have been successful in every church plant. Nor can I say that I have anywhere near all the answers. I likely have only a few helpful hints for the church planter and his sending church. Prayerfully these pages might provide some sort of reference from which the work may progress.
