Stephen McQuoid's Recommendation

Steel is a pastor with a background in market research and for the past 25 years has had an involvement in church planting. In this book he uses a survey to tease out from seasoned church planters what important lessons they have learned. From the survey results, Steel points out six internal pitfalls and six external pitfalls that prospective church planters should try to avoid. Some of these are fairly obvious, others less so, but all have something useful to say and each chapter ends with further reading. If you are at the beginning of a church plant or contemplating being involved in one, this book contains useful information from experienced practitioners that will be of value.

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
