The meat of the book is divided up into three planted like a three point sermon”The Man”, “The Message”, and “The Mission”. Modern society shuns the traditional role of the man as the head of the home, the payrick and the spiritual leader of the family. Not only does Patrick begin by asking the right question, he also begins by answering that question with something that is so often assumed—the gospel.

And it is in these sections that I feel the book hits a broader audience of every pastor, every elder, every Christian taking a serious role in the Great Commission which should be all of us. Again, it’s not a bad thing, but I just wonder how often I will refer back to this book.

I first saw some rave reviews online for this particular book by Darrin Patrick when I was just released and I didn’t think much about it at that time. Francis Chan’s Forgotten God provided a needed reminder that I must and frankly long to operate out the of the power that only the Holy Spirit provides. He really defied Jesus and a solid historical figure that wasn’t just a nice guy and good example, but a Savior.

Get to Know Us. Another unique aspect of Patrick’s book is how well-documented and well-researched it is.

Church Planter by Darrin Patrick (Review)

Not only does Patrick emphasize the necessity of preaching Christ from all of Scripture, he shows how tragic and dangerous the alternatives are—many which exist today in evangelical pulpits. I like the fact that you don’t have to agree with all of his theology to benefit from his wisdom. Section three was my second favorite part of the book after section one. During a time when gospel explanations are often fuzzy and unclear, Patrick has brought much needed clarity and profundity in our milieu.


Oh, and of course if you are thinking of planting a church this is for you as well. The gospel, then, is fundamentally an announcement: You must have a clear sense of calling before you enter ministry. Read this if you are a church leader of any kind – especially if you are involved in church planting.

As I pushed into the medial sections of the book, though, Patrick spoke in depth about several issues–repentance and depravity come to mind–that were phenomenally well-put. It’s surprising that a book for church planter do no explain either of these 2.

Being a called man is a lonely job, and many times you feel like God has abandoned you in your ministry. He begins by asking not how to plant a church but who should plant a church. Patrick is very detailed, “Church Planter” by Darrin Patrick is a great book for anyone who longs for more out of life and ministry. The chapter on conceptualization was particularly good, and the other chapters in the section on mission were very good for all Christians whether they are interested in church planting or not.

Much of what is written about church planting aims at methodology and strategy for facing such challenges, but specific strategies do not apply to every context.

I will say, that the idea of “mission” is the one area that all churches, or fellowships and denominations will differ in opinion. However the majority of the book is not overly helpful or motivating.

I had stopped thinking about the limitless things God could do and had been chuch by my chhurch limitations. Churches take on various shapes and expresses, including micro house church and macro megachurchattractional and missional, and liturgical and contemporary. For the theologians, you may be surprised to see references to the hypostatic union of Jesus and simul justus et peccator with sources such as John Stott, John Calvin, Richard Lovelace, Michael Horton, and Martyn Lloyd-Jones.
