One in every six churches in the United States is African-American. So, given the church's central role in the black community, why is the number of unchurched African Americans increasing? How can you plant a church that proclaims with power and relevance the unchanging Gospel to our changing African-American culture?

Drawing from his wealth of experience, Hozell Francis gives you both the theory and practices for raising up a church in today's black community. You'll find out how to:

  • Shape a vision to guide your church
  • Form plans to realize your vision
  • Cultivate strong community ties
  • Develop an effective core of leaders
  • Impact families with the Gospel
  • Transcend cultural dividing lines
