Wise Church Planting

Twelve Pitfalls to Avoid in Starting New Churches

Dan Steel

Tired? Frustrated? Confused? When almost a third of churches don’t survive 4 years, discouragement is real. In response to the reports from those on the front lines, Steel uses stories, scripture, and self–examination to shed light on twelve common pitfalls and inspire strategies for planting churches that last. By looking to the God who has promised to build his church and loosening our grip on superficial success, there is hope for struggling church plants and church planters
