Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

If your groups need more leaders, this book is for you! Dr. Comiskey demonstrates how effective churches develop leaders. Then he shows you how to do the same by outlines the principles of leadership development that will work in any church. This book will revolutionize your future ministry (C. Peter Wagner Chancellor, Wagner Leadership Institute)

Many thanks to Comiskey for a helpful and practical book. Many church growth strategies work in the short run, but only leadership multiplication creates ongoing kingdom expansion. This book communicates biblical, proven and effective principles. My advice to you: "Eat this book!" Let it shape your heart, your vision and strategy (Jim Egli, Author, Pastor, and TOUCH Trainer)

Joel Comiskey shares insights as a leader who has himself raised up numerous leaders. From how to recognize potential leaders to cell leader training to time-tested principles of leadership, this book has it all. The accurate comparisons of various training models make it a great resource for those who desire more leaders. Great book! (Billy Hornsby, National Director, Bethany Cell Church Network)

Comiskey provides an inspiring panoramic view of leadership in this book. The concluding chapters, which outline the guidelines, models and principles for training effective cell group leaders, will prove especially helpful to churches that are seeking to deal with leadership issues (Karen Hurston, Hurston Ministries)

Once again, Joel Comiskey has provided a book that answers the questions of those in the cell church movement. I read the manuscript with pen in hand, underlining so many sentences that few were left untouched! This book will be an excellent reference for cell leaders and might well be incorporated into their ongoing training (Ralph W. Neighbour, Jr., Founder, TOUCH Outreach Ministries)

Joel has the divine ability to take vital kingdom information compiled from throughout the body of Christ and boil it down so churches can clearly understand and practically apply these truths. I highly recommend this book for everyone who is serious about training leaders for the harvest (Larry Kreider, International Director, DOVE Christian Fellowship International)

About the Author

Joel Comiskey currently serves as a missionary with the C&MA in Latin America. He holds the Ph.D. degree from Fuller Theological Seminary in Intercultural Studies. Along with leading cell seminars around the country, he forms an integral part of the pastoral team in a growing cell church in Quito, Ecuador. Joel and his wife Celyce have three daughters.

More About the Author

My early childhood was spent in Long Beach, CA, where both of my parents were teachers at Long Beach City College. I attended elementary school through high school in L.B. I was transformed by Jesus Christ in 1974 at the age of seventeen after searching in many directions for the meaning of life. In 1978, I felt a definite call to be a missionary. In 1986, I met my wife Celyce Hahn of Mariposa, California, and we were married in Feb. 1988. In 1990 we left for missionary service in Ecuador, South America. In 2001 we returned for ministry in the U.S. and now live in Southern California with our three daughters: Sarah, Nicole, and Chelsea.

I received a Ph.D. from Fuller Seminary and am founder and president of Cell Church Solutions (CCS), a non-profit organization dedicated to helping churches fulfill the great commission.

This book reviews the G12 model in a practical manner. It is easy to read yet thorough in its treatment. Contrary to what one individual said in a previous review, the book does NOT overlook the individual. The very concept of G12 is to give a full discipleship to the individual reflective of what Jesus did with His 12 apostles. The model can hardly be accused of focusing only on church growth when the very idea of G12 is that one person pours their life completely into the lives of 12 others.

Format: Paperback
This books gives you a great game-plan to grow a church. Unfortunately, this system has some problems. The primary problem is that there is such a focus on church growth that individual people are left behind. If you're not growing the church, you become part of the problem. The system leaves room for a cultish following of a charismatic leader rather than focusing on individual interpretation of scripture. This system can make you forget too easily that there are some things that are more important than church growth.
