This guide has been put together to help those of you who are involved or looking to be involved in church
planting. There are numerous resources out there to help you. We hope we have done the work - scouring the
internet, researching the publishers, and asking successful church planters what resources have been valuable
to them - to put together a wide collection of resources.

The guide has been split into four resource groups:books, websites, magazines and newsletters, and tools.
The focus is church planting; however we felt it would be helpful to resource items in other categories, as
well. So we included additional resources such as leadership resources, church financing resources, and
church administration resources, to name a few. Hopefully this guide can help you sort through the resources
to get the guidance and knowledge you can use.

Annotations are based on publisher-supplied descriptions.

Websites were accurate as of 3/1/05. Please report outdated links to Cindi.Haworth@leadnet.org.

We would like to extend a special thanks those who made this list of resources possible.
Thank you to the knowledgable people who gave their recommendations and names to be used on our Picks
Pages (Mark Driscoll, Ed Waken, and Dave Travis).

Thank you to Ed Stetzer who also gave us a list of many church planting resources. Ed is the
Director of Research and Missiologist at the North American Mission Board. He has trained
pastors and church planters on five continents. He has planted churches in New York and
Pennsylvania. He holds two masters and two doctorates. His Ph.D. dissertation addressed the
issue of what helps new churches grow. Stetzer served for three years as a seminary profes-
sor, teaching missions, church planting, and evangelism at the Southern Baptist Theological
Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky and has taught at 10 other seminaries. His book, Planting
New Churches in a Postmodern Age, helps church planters to start and grow biblically faith-
ful and culturally relevant churches. The book has become a standard church planting text-
book in many evangelical seminaries. He has coauthored (with Elmer Towns) Perimeters of
Light: Biblical Boundaries for the Emerging Churchwhich helps churches to determine what
parts of church life are biblically commanded.
