While many people get ordained with the Universal Life Church just to perform a single ceremony, like a wedding or a funeral, several have broader goals in mind: like starting church or ministry of their own. It is important that everyone has the ability to take control of their own spiritual ship, unfortunately, the legal and practical work behind forming a church can be daunting.
Fortunately, however, it doesn’t have to be anymore! Launch - Starting a New Church from Scratch, is the perfect beginners guide to church planting and growth for new pastors. Written by two pastors from Manhattan’s “Journey Church”, this handy how-to book covers the actual journey of two pastors as they navigated the new and exciting process of beginning a new ministry.
Inside, the authors will walk you through their own deeply personal experiences, as they struggled to transform a dream, with no money and no staff, into a church with more than 1,000 members in just three years. You’ll learn, in particular, how to raise funds, form teams, write your services, and grow your membership in an effective and meaningful way.
Before you even dream about your first sermon, pick up a copy of Launch and start building your plan out, the true-and-tested way.
