The following is a list of books that I would recommend for church planters to read, whether in the USA or overseas. These books have been a blessing to me. You will not agree with everything but you will be able to get some ideas. I am always happy if I get one good idea from a book. One idea makes the book worth reading for me.

The books are not in order especially but I am placing them in some what of an order. That means that they will end up more or less in how much they influenced me.

On Being a Servant of God

Master Plan of Evangelism

Spiritual Leadership: Principles of Excellence for Every Believer

The Spontaneous Expansion of the Church: And the Causes That Hinder It

Indigenous Church Planting, a Practical Journey

Planting Churches Cross-Culturally: North America and Beyond

Ten Most Common Mistakes Made by Church Starts

Starting a New Church: The Church Planter’s Guide to Success

Launch: Starting a New Church from Scratch

This all I have time for right now. I will get more out later and try to get them in a better order.

Leaders are readers so I hope you are reading!
