Current Church Planting Bibliography

More than occasionally I’m asked by people interested in Church planting, “Hey, what should I be reading?” Here’s my current top ten list of favorites in no particular order. All of these are in the category of “I wish I’d read that before I planted a church.”

Other books that have been foundational for me personally: The Externally Focused Church by Eric Swanson and Rick RusawThe Tangible Kingdom: Creating Incarnational Community by Hugh Halter and Matt Smay, Total Church: A Radical Reshaping Around Gospel and Community by Steve Timmis.

What would be your recommendations?

  1. Church Planter by Darrin Patrick. Really good substance centered around the planter himself, a sound message, and missional focus. Thanks for your list!

  2. Yes Yes! Read Church Planter last year. Must add that one to the list as well! Thanks Mitchell!
