Overview

Starting a church from scratch? Start here! This is no typical church planting or church growth book. The authors, both pastors at The Journey Church of the City in Manhattan, offer specific strategies for beginning a church from scratch, based on their own experiences in launching a church with no members, no money, and no staff and watched membership skyrocket to more than a thousand people in three years! They offer clear, practical how-to strategies for quickly raising funds, creating a team, planning services, effective evangelism, and rapidly developing a growing membership. Specific advice is included for reaching that often difficult-to-target demographic, the 20 to 40 year old. You will also get an insider's look at The Journey Church of the City as a model for church planting. The helpful strategies here will help you remove many of the barriers, questions, and doubts encountered in starting a church from scratch. If these principles work in NYC, they will work for you!
