Tired? Frustrated? Confused? Almost a third of new churches don’t survive 4 years: What’s the problem? What’s gone wrong?

External opposition, character qualms, practical barriers, disunity dilemmas, lack of support: these are the struggles reported by those on the front lines of church planting ministry.

Stories, scripture, and self–examination shed light on twelve common pitfalls and inspire strategies for planting churches that last. Gathering real experiences and tackling the challenges headfirst, Steel encourages us to step out of the pressured drive for short–term gains and resist the allure of superficial successes. As our gaze shifts from making converts to making disciples, we are equipped and energised to persevere in establishing the roots that will cultivate thriving churches.

In the midst discouragement, there is hope for struggling church plants and struggling planters: God has promised to build his church

Dan addresses the most crucial component for pastors to consider when church planting, and that is wisdom! By focusing on both the internal character and external strategies necessary for healthy church plants, this is a book that should be required reading for all who are pursuing this noble call.

Dan Steel has done a wonderful service to the church planting world with this gem … honest, real, and insightful.

… both challenging and hopeful. This book should be required reading for church planters and their teams, but would benefit everyone in church leadership because these dangers are not unique to church planting.
