The Y-B-H Handbook of Church Planting is a practical step-by-step guide for church planters and their coaches. It covers everything they need to know to start healthy, growing churches that are biblically faithful and yet culturally relevant. While addressing the who, why, and where of planting new congregations, this comprehensive manual focuses primarily on the "how-tos." The authors use a five-stage "life cycle"—conception, pre-natal development, birth/infancy, adolescent growth, and adult reproduction—to flesh out the entire process of starting and growing a new church. Under each of these stages, a host of essential ministry and planning tasks is addressed so the planter can keep his "baby" church on course and can have the joy of watching the new church grow to maturity and eventually reproduce itself.

ROGER MCNAMARA served as a missionary church planter in Latin America for a dozen years, and he has spent the past twenty-eight years writing, teaching, and starting new churches in Virginia and Florida. He currently serves in several leadership positions within the North America Field Council of Baptist Mid-Missions. He is a graduate of Practical Bible Training School and holds degrees from Cedarville College and Liberty University.
