Gaining by Losing: Why the Future Belongs to Churches That Send
By J.D. Greear (Zondervan)
When it comes to resources that shape church leaders, often the best come from those who have done what they write about. In Gaining by Losing, J.D. Greear shares the different “plumb lines” that have shaped The Summit Church in becoming a prolific sending and planting church.
The book is biblical, inspirational and practical for church leaders who desire to make an impact in both a local community and globally. This book will help you make disciples and plant churches that have a far-reaching impact!
