Although I am not a Christian and looking at building something for another faith, I found the process and the ideas covered in this book to be very universal. While the book did focus on a Christian church and quoted scripture, it never came across as too "preachy" and was full of practical advice. I worked through several of the exercises in the book and found them to be quite beneficial in refining my idea and creating a solid plan. If you want to launch a spiritual venture of any type, this is an excellent book to get you started. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0830743103, Paperback)

Starting a church from scratch? Start here! This is no typical “church planting” or “church growth” book. The authors, both pastors at The Journey Church of the City in Manhattan, offer specific strategies for beginning a church from scratch, based on their own experiences in launching a church with no members, no money and no staff—and watched membership skyrocket to more than a thousand people in three years!  They offer clear, practical how-to strategies for quickly raising funds, creating a team, planning services, effective evangelism and rapidly developing a growing membership. Specific advice is included for reaching that often difficult-to-target demographic, the 20- to 40-year-old. You’ll also get an insider’s look at The Journey Church of the City as a model for church planting. The helpful strategies here will help you remove many of the barriers, questions and doubts encountered in starting a church from scratch. If these principles work in NYC, they’ll work for you!
