The Wholehearted Church Planter for review on this blog (via Net Galley) and found it to be a refreshing surprise. Instead of a bunch of leadership tips and suggestions for creating flashy events, authors, Allan Karr and Linda Bergquist say the key to effective church planting is spiritual.
The secret to launching a vital congregation is for the leaders to live in the overflow of holy character and love. It is about passion for Christ rather than personality or programs. I deeply appreciate this rich and biblical challenge to put first things first and to minister reflectively.
