Jim Brunk Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma
Using materials from “Church Growth International”
Dr. Brock’s Strategic Church Planting Book This is a resource to be used along side of “Indigenous Church Planting: A Practical Journey.” Some very important and critical guidelines concerning Biblical church planting are given in a few pages. Church planting definitions are included. The primary emphasis of the booklet is related to the “tools” (Bible study materials). A brief synopsis is given for each book and the time frame in which they are to be used. There are suggestions concerning how the books are to be used. This is a must for the person who wants a quick overview of healthy church planting.
Dr. Brock’s Strategic Church Planting Books This resource gives the leader the skills to lead a Bible study using a non-lecture method. It is a style of communication that can be used regardless of education or speaking abilities. This method of indirect leadership can be used for any course of study, but is designed to be used when leading Good News for You and I Have Been Born Again, What Next?
Dr. Brock’s Strategic Church Planting Books The purpose of this book is to bring people to authentic faith in Christ. It can be studied alone, with a counselor or in a group. The lessons are based on the Gospel of John, so either a copy of the Gospel of John, a New Testament or a Bible will be needed for the study. The lessons are simply questions with the students finding the answers in the Bible. The suggested procedure of use is found in the introduction of the book.
Dr. Brock’s Strategic Church Planting Books New believers are often left unguided in their newly found faith and Christian life. Now you can help them understand Christian privileges and responsibilities and help prepare them for responsible church membership in eleven Bible based lessons.
Dr. Brock’s Strategic Church Planting Books This is a book of questions that many churches and new believers ask. This book takes these questions and simply answers them from the scriptures. It is designed to help the new pastor of a new church in the bush of Africa or an untrained pastor in Los Angeles. It has also proven to be a good tool for basic leadership training. Let This Mind Be in You This is a book about personal evangelism that has grown from the cross-cultural experience of Charles Brock. You will find ways of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ that will work in any culture or context. Questions People and Churches Ask
Galatians, From Law to Grace Good News For YouGood News For You and I Have Been Born Again, What Next? This is a chapter-by-chapter study guide for the book of Galatians. The Bible is the actual text. There are questions for discussion at the end of each chapter. The guide was originally written to be used by new believers who had completed the study of Good News For You and I Have Been Born Again, What Next? Someone with little or no experience can lead a group in the study of Galatians using this guide.I Have Been Born Again, What Next?Good News For YouI Have Been Born Again, What Next? Brock’s Strategic Church Planting Books (one year church study) John, Behold the Lamb This chapter by chapter study of John is meant to be a partial resource for Bible teachers. It is not meant to be a basic text for the study but only a help in better understanding the Gospel of John. The Gospel of John itself is the basic text for the study. This chapter-by-chapter study guide for Philippians is meant to be a resource for Bible teachers. Like the other study guides in this series, it can be led by someone with little or no training. There are ten lessons in the guide. Philippians, The Joyous Journey This resource will help a new Christian or church through the book of Romans. Romans is in many ways the first great work of Christian theology. This chapter by chapter study will provide a helpful tool in understanding the theological framework that Paul lays out in his letter to the Romans. Romans, Road to Righteousness

A couple, Zeferino and H. Nieves from the Mixteca Native tribe in Guerrero (Also Misteca, Latin Mish-te-ka) One of the most important civilized tribes of southern Mexico, occupying an extensive territory in western and northern Oaxaca and extending into Guerrero. This group in Guerrero is one of the 6,426 unreached people groups IMB has asked us to pray for. Two years ago I chose that group at the SBC convention not knowing GOD was already at work. Bro.
