This course considers the factors and forces connected to the amazing phenomenon of church planting movements taking place throughout the world. We also explore the implications of these factors for multiplying churches in today's inner cities. At a time when our definitions of the Church have become more and more individualized, this study analyzes church plant and growth theories as they relate to the more communal Nicene-based marks of church life. Learn how a new understanding of church plant movements worldwide may help us trigger the greatest harvest of souls among the world’s urban poor! A summary of the key elements of church planting movements across the globe, this study highlights how to learn from such movements in order to ignite explosive, dynamic, and reproducing movements in the American inner city.
