Much of what cuhrch written about church planting aims at methodology and strategy for facing such challenges, but specific strategies do not apply to every context. The most critical human component of every church plant is the planter. Offering guidance and wisdom from years of experience, Patrick reminds us that ultimately no church will succeed apart from a man with a message who leads a church on a mission.

It has wide-ranging application for elders and leadership teams seeking to better understand how the gospel must take root in their church. Avoiding an over-emphasis on particular models or methods, Patrick lays out biblical darrinn and sound wisdom as he urges the church to return to biblical criteria for determining the man, the message, and the mission God uses to build his church. Church chjrch should all read this. I highly recommend this gospel-saturated challenge to plant churches led by God-centered men.

This was a better book than what I had expected. I first saw some rave reviews online for this particular book by Darrin Patrick when I was just released and I didn’t think much about it at that time.

I thought that such a hype that soon would be over. However, after seeing there was a great kindle deal on this book, I thought why not read it myself, and boy did I enjoy reading this book. This book is separated into 3 major portions, the man, the message and the mission. Simply put, it talks about who is the kind of person God calls to be a church planter, how should a church planter accomplish this task, and what is the church planter’s mission?

In the first part, Patrick goes to the focus of this book, the person himself, what kind of man should a church planter be? Patrick painstakingly goes through each characteristics of what kind of man God demands for this crucial task.

I feel that this is the best part of the book, not only was this section thought provoking, it was meant for readers who most likely are geared towards this direction to search their hearts thoroughly before God. At the end of each chaoter there are also many reflective questions which really helped me think through what I had learned from each chapter and examining my life based on what I’ve learnt. In the 2nd part, which is essentially about preaching, talks about what kind of message must a church planter preach?

Partick immediately narrows it down to the expository, salvation-historical, Christ-centred preaching and quickly show from the bible these truths and explains each of them lucidly.
