INTREPID: WHEN CHURCH PLANTING MEETS SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP (SEATTLE: MISSIONAL CHALLENGE, 2018)

The landscape of church planting is rapidly changing right before our eyes. In response to the fluidity of the culture that surrounds us, church planters are needing to think differently about how they should approach their calling. Rather than asking, “How do I plant a sustainable church?” many are beginning to ask instead, “How do I become sustainable as a church planter?”

Enter social entrepreneurship. Intrepid is about combining the twin forces of church planting and social entrepreneurship––where the gospel is proclaimed and lived out, where neighborhoods and communities find new hope for the future through job creation and economic development, and where church planters create avenues for long-term sustainability.

The goal of this book is to set the course for a new way forward for church planters. Regardless of the cultural and societal contexts church planters find themselves in, how well are they being equipped and trained for the tasks at hand? What skills and tools are they missing that would help them meet these new challenges? The changes taking place are so fundamental that we even need to redefine who or what a church planter actually is.
