Redeeming failure : how the stories of failed church plants point toward fruitfulness
Author
Matthew G. Johnson
Abstract
"New church starts in the United Methodist Church experience failure at a surprisingly high rate. The author spoke with six United Methodist Church planters to learn about the ways they experienced fruitfulness in ministry even as their projects were not deemed successful. Many of these stories have not been previously told and the author found it meaningful and important to share the stories of the important work that these planters accomplished. Using the information gathered from these stories, the author makes suggestions as to how church planting in the United Methodist Church might change to offer greater support and success to those people who are attempting to start new churches." -- Leaf [2].
