In this book, Nick has captured the essence of the greatest challenge the church faces. Planting churches is a critical component in spreading the Good News, not everyone can do it personally therefore it’s all the more important for those who can, to get started. May be you’re not the one to lead the plant? Labourers, prayer warriors and supporters are all essential for a plant to succeed, everyone can get involved, read this book and learn how and why.
Wayne Swift National Leader, Apostolic Church Australia.
With 4 decades in Christian Ministry and a vast range of experience, the one topic that I think sums up Nick’s passion and all he lives for is ‘Church Planting’. Multiplication is therefore a book that he is probably more qualified than any to write and one that I believe all leaders should read and allow to shape their future ministry.

Any book that inspires us to look at engaging in new pioneering endeavours is always a winner in my eyes. This book does exactly that. The challenge to have a vision to see multiplication take place through church planting endeavours will encourage many. It is an apostolic mandate that will both motivate and challenge individuals and networks to think beyond their present expectations.

I have had the privilege of knowing Nick since his first church plant many years ago, and through to today Nick is the ultimate church planting practitioner, not a theoretician. What you read in “Multiplication” has been tried and tested and proven to be effective and fruitful, and will serve as both a “how to” and a reference book along the journey of planting. As a fellow church planter, I hugely respect Nick for both what he has accomplished in church planting, and as a skilled communicator in the art and work of church planting.
