Plant Like Jesus provides spiritual nourishment for planting leaders, innovating pastors, seminary students, and anyone seeking to root their mission work in the practices of Jesus.
Author Ben Ingebretson's extensive experience in church planting brings hands-on credibility to this topic. He uses accessible language and real-life examples to encourage and equip those who are called to reach new people for Christ. With each of the 60 devotional readings, Ingebretson proclaims that by looking to the past, leaders can better tend the future.
Sourced from the best practices of Jesus and the early Christian movement, Plant Like Jesus addresses missional engagement, ministry development, and effective leadership. Entries include scripture, theological reflection, meditation, and prayer. Questions for reflection invite readers to dig deeper.
"Jesus and the way the early church followed his example gives us a pathway to follow," writes Ingebretson. "He is not only the Lord of the church; he is also the Lord of church planting."
