Have you read What Jesus Started by Steve Addison yet?  As we talk to T4T practitioners in the US context, most have found this book helpful in understanding and implementing the process.  Check out what other disciple+church multiplication movement leaders have to say about this valuable resource:

“In What Jesus Started, Steve Addison traces God’s redemptive movements back to their source, Jesus of Nazareth. This is a readable, informative and inspirational resource that should guide the Great Commission community for years to come.”
David Garrison, missionary and author of Church Planting Movements

“From the pen of Steve Addison we hear the spirit of Roland Allen speaking to a new generation. Addison draws on biblical insights and illustrates them with modern case studies to challenge existing paradigms to return to the New Testament ethos. Fortunately, Addison does more than challenge paradigms; he offers a practical guide to begin implementing this in your community. “If you prefer to enjoy the comfort of your current situation, do not read this book. However, I encourage you to read it, implement the biblical principles and join the growing global community of disciples through whom the Master delights in starting fresh movements of God!”
Steve Smith, regional leader for Southeast Asia (International Mission Board of the Southern Baptists), CPM trainer and author of T4T: A Discipleship Re-Revolution

“Among all the important writings about Jesus movements available today, this one contributes a strong focus on the patterns shared by both Jesus and Paul in the New Testament and is illustrated by Addison’s aptitude for research with helpful examples of what God is doing today around the world. It therefore stands at the heart of what is essential and provides a helpful starting place for us all.”
Neil Cole, founder of Church Multiplication Associates and author of Organic Church

“Do you want to plant a church, or do you want to allow God to use you to ignite and fuel a movement of churches? If it is the latter, then you need to wrestle through this book–with the Scriptures, the help of the Holy Spirit and some other disciples of Jesus.”
–JR Woodward, cofounder of the Ecclesia Network, author of Creating a Missional Culture)

Jesus connects with the lost, shares the gospel, trains disciples, gathers them in communities, and multiples them to go out and do the same. Steve’s insight into this process is clear and communicable. This book will challenge you to think more like a movement and less like an institution.
–Ed Stetzer, LifeWay Research
