DON’T PLANT—Be PLANTED: Contrarian observations about starting a church

Be prepared to hear some sound, hard advice from an experienced church planter about the joys, sorrows, victories, and defeats that come with the arduous task of extending the Kingdom of God. If you can’t handle this book, maybe you need to look for another calling.

“Michael Crawford is an extraordinary leader and gift to the church. He has had an immeasurable impact on my life and on the lives of countless others. He is a consistent source of wisdom and contrarian thinking. I have been immensely blessed by his wisdom and writing. I highly commend this book to you. Read it and re-read it!”

—Brian Howard Vice President of Acts 29 for US Networks and Board Chairman

“Great book . . . I keep seeing one-liners that make me have to resist the urge to re-activate my twitter account so I can post quotes. Overflowing with practical wisdom that has DEPTH. Going to take the next month and just do what is said in Chapter 12.”

—James Tyler Pastor of Grace Baptist Church, Papillon, Nebraska 

“I loved this book. While reading it I found myself affirming Crawford’s views concerning the family’s call, women’s role in ministry, and pastors getting paid . . . out loud. I definitely want to use this with every planter (and pastor) that we send out.”

—Jamie Caldwell Lead Pastor of Redemption Church, Maryland
