The Future Belongs to Churches that SEND

When Jesus gave the Great Commission, he revealed that the key for reaching the world with the gospel is found in sending, not gathering. Many churches focus time and energy on attracting people and counting numbers--while the real mission of the church is about training up disciples and then sending them out. It's about sending capacity, not seating capacity! In Gaining By Losing, J.D. Greear unpacks ten kingdom principles—plumb lines—that you can use to realign your church’s priorities around God’s mission to reach a lost world. To see ministry multiply, we must release the seeds God has placed in our hands. The good news is that you don’t need to choose between gathering or sending. Effective churches can, and must, do both.

“Wow! I just finished reading Gaining By Losing. I rarely finish a book and feel like it took my breath away. This book by J. D. Greear is nothing short of incredible. It’s just that powerful.”—Thom S. Rainer, President and CEO of LifeWay Christian Resources
