Have you ever considered the incredible historical and geographical odds against Christianity? Over two thousand years ago, the self-proclaimed Son of God and His rag-tag band of disciples first preached the Gospel in a small Roman province. From there, the Good News spread north, south, east, and west. It crossed oceans, climbed mountains, and traveled on horseback and footpath over every imaginable terrain. Within just a few generations Christianity grew from an obscure, regional uprising into a worldwide movement through the multiplication of local churches.

Church Planting Thresholds explores both the why’s and the how’s of church planting, providing “Thresholds” that serve as progress mileposts along the church planting journey. This simple guide will encourage ordinary Christians as they seek to fulfill the Great Commission through planting churches.
