New book provides a manual on how to start new and develop old churches
Kissimmee, FL – March 31, 2011 – How does one go about starting a new church in the community? Every aspect to this question is dealt with in full detail in author Dr. Henry Vernon’s newly published book. For all those who are interested, these Steps for Starting New Churches will lead them towards where they want their church to go and how they can develop it.
The author first provides a historical, theological, and sociological overview of the nature and function of the local church. He then continues with the actual process of organizing new congregations. Each church must face the unique requirements of its community, and this book pinpoints and analyzes the needs of various types of churches: suburban, special purpose, downtown, and others. There are specific instructions for each step of development, from the initial survey of the area in which a new church may be needed to planning and financing the first building. The most common problems are pointed out and solutions are indicated.
This manual is a helpful read for those who are starting new churches or who want to rekindle the spark in their old churches.
