The Great Commission provides more than a weekly activity of soulwinning or visitation; it reflects the very heartbeat of God. It is more than a directive for local church outreach programs; it is God’s plan for the establishment of local churches around the world.
God’s Passion is a church planting manual that will both challenge and equip you to align your heart with God’s. This book includes teaching on the biblical model of church planting as well as several chapters of intensely practical resources for both the sending church and the church planter.
These chapters will encourage you to make Christ’s last command your highest priority, and to invest your life—as a supporting church member, a sending pastor, or a church planter—into the passion of God.
Dr. Bud Calvert pastored Fairfax Baptist Temple in Virginia for thirty-five years before turning the church over to his son, Troy. He now serves as Pastor Emeritus and travels throughout the United States and around the world preaching in missions conferences, helping start churches, encouraging missionaries and pastors, and training men who are preparing for the ministry. As founder of the International Conference on World Evangelism, he is working to turn the hearts of preachers, young and old, toward church planting and world evangelism. Dr. Calvert and his wife, Mary, have been married for forty-four years.
