Title: THE CHURCH THAT MULTIPLIES
Author: Dr. Joel Comiskey
Publisher: CCS Publishing
Genre: Inspirational/nonfiction/church growth
Joel Comiskey believes that North American churches can experience the same successful church growth through cell ministries as churches are in Korea and Columbia, and in THE CHURCH THAT MULTIPLIES, Dr. Comiskey proves the cell church concept does work but also exams churches that are successfully using the cell strategy.
Written for pastors, lay leaders, and church planters, Dr. Comiskey wants to encourage the “little guy” who doesn’t have the charisma to emulate the large-church pastors. Cell groups are essentially small groups (but not all small groups are cell groups) which exist for the purpose of evangelism, community, and discipleship, with the ultimate goal of church growth.
Several examples of successful cell churches in America and Canada are given, with sizes of the church varying from small (less than 100 members) to large (over 3,000 members) showing that this type of ministry can be successfully used in churches of all sizes. If you are interested in church growth, you should seriously consider buying a copy of this book and studying the strategies, or giving the book as a gift to your pastor. $14.95. 180 pages.
