Publisher's Description

Small new Christian communities created by pioneer ministers, both lay and ordained, are popping up everywhere – on housing estates, in community centres, schools, cafes, among different age groups and in numerous other contexts beyond the local church. This practical book is for all who are engaged in this form of ministry and it begins by identifying some basic principles from a wide variety of creative examples of pioneer ministry.

Illustrated with actual examples throughout, it explores
• how to ‘listen’ to the physical, social and spiritual environment of a local context
• how to discern a community’s needs and the appropriate missional response
• how to build a creative team
• the art of the start – how to begin well
• how to build relationships and create community by acts of authentic love
• how to become and stay Jesus-centred
• how to live and tell the gospel in meaningful ways
• how to grow disciples
• how to stay fresh (and avoid rotas!)

Editorial Reviews

‘Dave has given us a gift in How to Pioneer. It is full of practical advice, stories, experience and wisdom. This book equips us to take that exciting first step in partnership with God’s Spirit and inspires us to see where it will lead.’
‘Brilliant in its simplicity, How To Pioneer is an easy-to-read, immensely practical guide … It has the wonderful sense when you read it of making you think “I can do this� which is the point – you can!’
‘This book is a 'how-to' for anyone looking to live out the mission of God to impact those that would never set foot inside a traditional church. Be careful, this book could change everything for you!'
‘Packed full of common sense, stories and accumulated learning from many different contexts, it is a book which has been waiting to be written and one that you shouldn’t wait to read!’
‘A great and timely book- short enough to be hugely readable, long enough to be hugely valuable.’
