Planting Missional Churches is an instruction book for planting biblically faithful and culturally relevant churches. It addresses the "how-to" and "why" issues of church planting by providing practical guidance through all the phases of a church plant while taking a missional look at existing and emerging cultures.
Rick Warren says, "Ed Stetzer is on of the best informed, practical minded, and field-tested church planters that I know."
Missional implies taking the methods of a missionary—being indigenous to the culture, seeking to understand and learn, adapting to the mission field—but planting the biblical form of the church.
