When it comes to measuring the success of a church, does size matter? Not necessarily, says pastor Mike McKinley. In Church Planting is for Wimps, McKinley forwards a true story of church revitalization that is built upon God using messed-up people to plant churches that, though seemingly unremarkable to the world, have incredible impact and influence through God's everyday amazing grace.
This latest addition to the IXMarks series tells the story of the revitalization of Guilford Baptist Church in northern Virginia. Weaving together scripture and biblical principles with humor and personal anecdotes, author Michael McKinley asserts that a pastor's faithful exposition, passion for sharing the gospel, and the training of solid leaders are key to a flourishing congregation—no matter how many members there are.
McKinley honestly shares his own fears and rookie mistakes, along with encouraging stories of how God moved at Guilford Baptist. We are reminded that God uses weak and fearful pastors in plants and revitalizations; church planting is indeed for 'wimps.' For pastors and seminarians considering a church plant and those already struggling in their own fledgling congregations, this book is a thoughtful and encouraging resource.
