What’s New at Asbury Church Planting?

Published Date: August 2, 2022

New Asbury Church Planting Book!
Hope in Hard Places: Real Church Planting Stories from around the World to Encourage You in God’s Mission

We are living through one of the most chaotic and challenging times in recent history. But we’re also living within the exciting reality of a truly global and multicultural world where Christian leaders must be missionally minded and globally engaged. As we look at the world around us today, we find that the church is growing at an explosive rate in many parts of the majority world. With such a global representation, we have much to learn from our brothers and sisters in the wider global church.

This book is the fruit of the 2021 Global Church Planting Summit that was hosted by Asbury Theological Seminary and Nazarene Theological Seminary. More than 60 church planters representing 20 countries gathered to hear case studies, presentations, and first-hand reports of God’s faithfulness. Each chapter focuses on a case study from around the globe that reminds us we need new local churches to reach all types of people for Christ in each global context.

Our contributors are expert practitioners, faithfully living out the great commission in their cultural context. Their stories and insights offer valuable lessons for those of us who want to learn more about what God is doing in and through the global church.

We at the Asbury Seminary Church Planting Initiative pray this book inspires you to join in God’s mission wherever he calls you to serve!
