Jesus Never Said to Plant Churches
Jesus Never Said to Plant Churches: And 12 More Things They Never Told Me About Church Planting
by Trinity Jordan
Church planting is hard. Very hard. No, extremely hard. But no one ever told that to Trinity Jordan
when he and his wife set out to plant Elevation Church fifteen miles north of Salt Lake City, Utah.
What started with three families and a dog named Carson meeting in a house has now grown into
multiple house churches and two public gathering locations, with more being developed. But those
early days (well, even the current ones, too) would not have been so tough had Trinity been
forewarned and well-armed to face the challenges ahead. A new generation of church leaders have
begun planting churches in droves and at breakneck speed, which is wonderful in and of itself, but
with this movement comes the need to understand all the pitfalls, hurdles, and challenges often
overlooked. Jesus Never Said to Plant Churches reveals the secrets on church planting so leaders
will have the insight and confidence to complete their mission to see God's glory reflected in
