The future belongs to churches that understand that healthy growth comes not through addition but through multiplication … for 23 years we’ve practiced principles of multiplication at Saddleback Church. As a result we’ve witnessed God bless the church with exponential growth beyond our wildest dreams. Now there are many other churches that are modeling these principles, and this wonderful book is filled with examples. I love this book because it is written by friends of mine about friends of mine. This is not theory. I can personally attest that these guys are actually doing what is explained in this book, and they are experiencing God’s blessing. My prayer is that reading this will stir you to think and act ‘beyond the box’, just as my friends have. Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb … that’s where the fruit is! Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Church
