In honor of Dr. Gary McIntosh’s new biography of Donald McGavran, here’s today’s Monday moment:
“A Church Growth principle is a universal truth which, when properly interpreted and applied, contributes significantly to the growth of churches and denominations. It is a truth of God which leads his church to spread his Good News, plant church after church, and increase his Body.”
– Donald McGavran
