Item description for Planting and Growing Urban Churches: From Dream to Reality by Harvie M. Conn...

Establishing vital churches in metropolitan areas represents a formidable challenge, and church planters need the wise counsel of experienced practitioners to guide them through the process. Planting and Growing Urban Churches: From Dream to Reality provides such sage advice. Harvie M. Conn pulls together selected articles from the quarterly journal Urban Mission that treat various aspects of planting and growing churches in the city. Contributors include urban specialists such as Ray Bakke, Craig Ellison, Viv Grigg, Robert Linthicum, and Ralph Neighbor Jr. This multiperspective approach results in a book brimming with insights and strategies for students, urban ministers, church planters, and missionaries. The work is divided into four parts that trace the challenging but rewarding process of church planting in the city from initial stages to establishment--from dream to reality. Part 1 explores the use of research. In part 2 Bakke, Ellison, and Neighbor describe how to develop a strategy for urban ministry. Part 3 looks at the role of targeting in church planting, while part 4 contains seven models of success. Each part includes a substantive introduction by the editor and a list of resources for further study. According to Conn these chapters reflect a growing global dedication . . . to the advancement of Christ's church and kingdom in cities throughout the world. The book motivates readers to expect great things from God for the city and attempt great things for God in the city.

Publishers Description
If the church is to thrive in the twenty-first century, it will have to take on a new form as it ministers to the 120 million unchurched people in the United States. Planting and Growing Urban Churches is still virtually the only available text on church planting in North America and beyond.
In this third edition, readers will find material on the importance of healthy, biblical change in our churches, updated appendices, insight on our postmodern ministry context, and strategies for reaching new population demographics such as Generation X and Y.
Pastors, ministry leaders, and church planters will find the information and advice found in this book invaluable as they carry out their ministries.

Reviews - What do customers think about Planting and Growing Urban Churches: From Dream to Reality?

Text book  Apr 7, 2007
I attempted to read this book, but it was really difficult. It reads more like a textbook than anything. There are plenty of other books that have the "how to" that are far better than this book.
