Team Jesusby Paul K.S. Kim
Church planting is best taught by church planters and Paul Kim is one of the best. Over the last thirty years, he has led the churches of which he has been pastor to start twenty-five churches in the United States, Korea, Japan, Central Asia, and East Asia. Of the twenty-five, twenty-two are still alive and well, an almost unheard of survival rate in church planting annuals. Kim attributes this success to planting churches the "Jesus way," using teams composed of "homegrown workers" who are trained and mentored by the mother church to plant daughter churches. While his primary focus has been on multicultural church planting, the principles Kim has learned both from his experience and from his study of how the Master began the first church are applicable in any church planting endeavor.
For Kim, church planting is not theory but a divine mandate. This book reveals his heart and clearly spells out the Master's plan for church planting.
Dr. Paul K.S. Kim, a native of Korea, immigrated to the United States in 1967. In 1969, while serving in the U.S. Army, he became an American citizen. He was educated at the University of Hawaii, Hilo (B.A); Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Texas (M.Div., M.A.C.E); and Golden Gate Theological Seminary in California, (D.Min.). In 2001, he and his wife, Rebekah, were the first husband-wife team to receive the Alumni Achievement Award from Golden Gate Seminary. He also has served as Southwestern Seminary's National Alumni President and currently serves as the seminary's National Adviser to City Alumni Fellowship. He has traveled to more than seventy countries to encourage missionaries.
Kim is the founding/senior pastor of Berkland Baptist Church in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he and his wife live. They have two adult children.
