Launch, Starting A New Church From Scratch

This book was by Nelson Searcy & Kerrick Thomas from The Journey church in New York City. It is a super practical guide for planting a new church, the do’s and the don’ts of church planting and how to build & run things from the beginning.

I enjoyed this book and will probably read it again and use it as a resource when that season is a little closer for Amy and I.

This book covers everything from the calling of a church planter, to raising money, building systems,  growth barriers, outreach ideas, staffing ideas and how to launch, etc.

If you are looking for a how to guide to church planting than this is a good one. If you are looking for a super spiritual book on love for God and developing a relationship with Him, this is not for you. If you are entertaining or planning on planting a church, then I would encourage you to go ahead and make the purchase.  Overall it was a worthwhile read and I’m glad I have it on the shelf when I’ll need to reference it again.
