Book Description

July 1991
The task of church planting requires the wisdom of a practitioner and the logic of a strategist. With his years of experience planting churches, and his extensive research on the subject, the author displays these two requisites on every page of his fruitful study. "As a missionary and missiologist," writes J. Ronald Blue of Dallas Theological Seminary, "the author gives a new perspective to church planting that extends beyond the immediate and sometimes shallow goal of a newly installed fellowship of believers. This book will be an invaluable aid to church planters and missionaries. This is a church planting guide that puts it all together." The author emphasizes that the primary goal of missions constitutes planting churches, which in turn are able to reproduce themselves. By using the proven management method Program Evaluation and Review Technique (PERT), the author outlines each step needed to accomplish that goal. Over sixty charts illustrate his principles and directives. Samuel D. Faircloth served as a U.S. Army Chaplain in Italy, WWII and as a missionary teacher and church planter in Portugal for thirty-six years, and as academic dean and professor of missions and church history in the Netherlands for six years, continuing as adjunct professor until 2010. He is a graduate of Wheaton College, Illinois, B.S., Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, MDiv., Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, D. Miss. He also did doctoral studies toward the PhD in Church History at the University of Chicago. He resides in Windsor Park Manor, in Carol Stream, Illinois with his wife, Betty.

4.0 out of 5 stars Church Planting Using the PERT system 31 May 2000
By Daniel Lancaster - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Faircloth, a former missionary to Europe and Portugal, maps out a strategy for producing churches that reproduce themselves. Utilizing Hesselgrave's "Pauline Cycle" and Patterson's "Obedience Oriented Teaching," he develops a PERT chart to evaluate program effectiveness. He does a good job of describing the various phases of church planting (preparatory, pioneer, growth and organization, and reproduction). He also demonstrates the challenge of the growth stage -- i.e. there are several major components that must happen at the same time. Baker Books includes an 11 X 17 PERT chart as a reference. Faircloth uses C. Peter Wagner's definition of a mature church. Not a church that is self-supporting, self-governing, and self-propagating, but one that 1. lives for others, 2. can take care of itself, 3. and is relevant to its cultural situation. This book, though out of print, is a good overview of the church planting process. Its value lies in the way Faircloth makes the planter "think" about church planting. I recommend it for every church planter's library.
