Send Network offers free e-books for church planters
    December 11 2015 by Seth Brown, BR Content Editor

    The Send Network of the North American Mission Board (NAMB) has released a free e-book, called “Send: Bible Studies for Releasing the Church.” The resource, available at, stands in a line of more than 20 e-books written by church planters for church planters.


    Dustin Willis, director of events for NAMB, said, “We really just want to see people succeed in their mission. … This is just a simple way to put practical resources out there for them.”
    The goal is for healthy churches to plant more churches, Willis continued, and that means helping everyday missionaries, church leaders and lead church planters implement their gifts and talents on mission.
    “We want to do everything we can to resource around that idea,” he said.
    Much of the content is theological in nature, but it is practical as well. That’s by design, said Willis.
    The latest release is a six-week Bible study that includes follow-up questions and assessments to aid Christians as they discover how to fully engage in the mission of God. It’s intended to mobilize small-groups or church planting teams.
    Other Send Network e-books are targeted at individual church leaders, or specific roles in the church, such as “Nuts & Bolts: Getting Started as a Church Planter” or “Partners in Planting: Help & Encouragement for Church Planting Wives.”
    Willis emphasized the real-world benefit of the resources. “We’re not the experts,” he said. “We want to point our pastors and planters to other pastors and planters who have been there and done that.”
    More resources are scheduled for release in the coming months, such as a peer-to-peer coaching e-book, written by Dino Senesi, director of coaching for the Send Network. Additional e-books related to military church planting and biblical counseling are slated for release as well.
