Product description

Small new Christian communities created by pioneer ministers, both lay and ordained, are popping up everywhere - on housing estates, in community centres, schools, cafes, among different age groups and in numerous other contexts beyond the local church.

This practical book is for all who are engaged in this form of ministry and it begins by identifying some basic principles from a wide variety of creative examples of pioneer ministry.

Illustrated with actual examples throughout, it explores

* how to 'listen' to the physical, social and spiritual environment of a local context

* how to discern a community's needs and the appropriate missional response

* how to build a creative team

* the art of the start - how to begin well

* how to build relationships and create community by acts of authentic love

* how to become and stay Jesus-centred

* how to live and tell the gospel in meaningful ways

* how to grow disciples

* how to stay fresh (and avoid rotas!)

Product Reviews

'This is a "can do" book, best put into the hands of people who sense a desire to respond to the call of God to reimagine things, but don't quite know the steps to realise it. It is deeply practical, deeply hopeful and deeply involving.' Archbishop Justin Welby

'Dave has given us a gift in How to Pioneer. It is full of practical advice, stories, experience and wisdom. This book equips us to take that exciting first step in partnership with God's Spirit and inspires us to see where it will lead.' Nicky Redsell, Director of the Centre for Pioneer Learning

'Brilliant in its simplicity, How To Pioneer is an easy-to-read, immensely practical guide ... It has the wonderful sense when you read it of making you think "I can do this" which is the point - you can!' Jonny Baker, Director of Mission Education, CMS

'A great and timely book- short enough to be hugely readable, long enough to be hugely valuable.' Rhiannon King, Director of Mission, Diocese of Birmingham
