Over the past 35+ years, Dave Proffitt (my dad) has dedicated his life to Jesus Christ and His church. I don’t know too many people who can make this claim. God has used this man to plant churches all over this nation and all over the world. Tens of Thousands of people have been impacted by the personal ministry of my pops. These years have been difficult to say the least…full of hardships, challenges, and really painful moments. But if you ask my dad, the reward of seeing Christ transform lives is worth all of the trials in ministry.
With all that being said, you don’t go through 35+ years of doing something and not learn anything about it. In fact, my dad has learned a lot about ministry…specifically, church planting. I can attest to the things that he has learned because I have been able to be a part of his journey in ministry since (pretty much) the beginning. Let me tell you, the man knows his stuff. He has a great biblical understanding of what Christ’s church should look like. And with all of that knowledge, why not put it down on paper? Well, that’s exactly what he did.
So it is with great joy that I have the privilege of making the announcement that my dad has written a book on church planting and it is finished. And it is going to be made available to the public really soon (Monday May 9th to be exact). So GET EXCITED!
The title of the book is “In the Trenches: Ten Vital Reminders to Assist Church Planters”. You will be able to get a first hand look into the mind of a man who has developed a proven biblical model for church planting. Also, you will be able to read about the humor and the horror that often accompanies church planting as my dad recounts dozens of stories from all of his ministry experiences. And, if you are looking for a strategic church planting guide, look no further.
So without further ado, here is the book’s cover:
