The story of a church's revitalization counters a common conception that a church's size determines its health and points pastors to the faithful ministry of God's Word. The story of a church's revitalization counters a common conception that a church's size determines its health and points pastors to the faithful ministry of God's Word. This addition to the IXMarks series tells the story of the revitalization of Guilford Baptist Church in northern Virginia. Weaving together scripture and biblical principles with humor and personal anecdotes, author Michael McKinley asserts that a pastor's faithful exposition of God's Word, passion for sharing the gospel, and care in the training of other godly leaders are more important than the size of his church. McKinley honestly shares his own fears and rookie mistakes, along with encouraging stories of how God moved at Guilford Baptist. We are reminded that God uses weak and fearful pastors in plants and revitalizations; church planting is indeed for ";wimps." For pastors and seminarians considering a church plant and those already struggling in their own fledgling congregations, this book is a thoughtful and encouraging resource.

Great Encouragement to Pray, Preach, Love, and Stay

How does God bring new life to a dying church? Through praying, preaching God's word, loving the people, and staying for the long term. Mike McKinley's Church Planting is for Wimps, is a narrative exposition of this simple truth. Complex strategies, vision statements, and cool music, might draw a crowd; true, lasting gospel growth will only come about as God's people pray, and God's words are heard. It's a short, engaging, encouraging read for all those involved in the task of Gospel Ministry. Buy it. Read it.
