Multiply Your Ministry by Parenting New Churches

Most pastors and church leaders know that a healthy church should eventually become a multiplying church. But how do you know when the time is right to parent a new church? And how do you know which of the many available strategies is right for your church?

In Becoming a Ripple Church: Why and How to Plant New Congregations, Phil Stevenson walks the pastor and church leader step-by-step through the process of parenting a new church from deciding when is the right time to understanding the models and hurdles of church parenting to developing a team of people to parent a new church.

Stevenson gives pastors and church leaders the inspiration and strategic know-how to multiply their church's effectiveness, as well as the nuts and bolts to get the job done.

Phil Stevenson has an extensive background in coaching denominational leaders, pastors, and church planters. He has consulted on church growth and multiplication issues with a variety of denominations and conducted workshops across North America on church planting and church growth. Phil is the director of church multiplication and leadership development for the Pacific-Southwest District of The Wesleyan Church and a visiting professor at five universities and seminaries.

    In Becoming A Ripple Church: Why and How to Plant New Congregations, Phil Stevenson explores the theology and methodology of being a church that multiplies through church planting (aka daughtering other churches). Stevenson divides the book into three sections: 1) Why Parent Churches?, 2) Preparing to Parent Churches, and 3) How to Parent A New Church. This book deals with "parent churches" and how to multiply a healthy church, rather than how to plant churches from scratch. Stevenson also primarily appeals to the perspective of a parent church and how to multiply well, though he does give suggestions and insight into leading a daughter church.

    Overall, I appreciated the basics that this book provides. Becoming A Ripple Church is written in a simple style and could easily be read in a few sittings. I was more interested in learning about church planting outside of other churches, but Stevenson presented a clear and helpful proposal for the need for all churches to multiply themselves into plants, which was interesting nonetheless. I will certainly keep this on the shelf for future reference. I recommend this book as a great start for churches that are considering expanding themselves. Though it should not be the only book or resource that one uses on the subject, it is a practical resource for ideas about how to vision cast and create a church planting plan. Plus, Stevenson includes a great list of resources for future study.
