Are you interested in starting a church, but don’t know where to begin? Winfield’s new book on church planting called Plant: A Sower’s Guide to Church Planting is officially out with Seedbed Publishing!

Plant is an ideal resource for those who are in the “discovery phase” of church planting. It helps answer foundational questions about the “what” and “why” of church planting. Rather than presenting models or programs, Plant offers essential seeds for exploring the process of starting a new church. Written for a wide range of people, including those exploring church planting for the first time and those right on the cusp of launch, this highly practical book will be an invaluable resource as you explore the exciting world of church planting. It is also a resource that church planters can introduce their core groups to the process of church planting. You can find out more about the book and order copies at

What Others are Saying...

“Winfield Bevins is a fresh voice with new insights and solid church planting experience. His insights are worth your time!” - Ed Stetzer, President, LifeWay Research

“Every era in the history of the church has both called for, and given us, the intelligent and anointed young minds required for the day. Winfield Bevins is a classic example. A Sower's Guide To Church Planting has a fresh, yet down to earth voice that adds richly to the conversation about church planting in the contemporary world.”

-Todd Hunter, Bishop: Churches For the Sake of Others, Author, Christianity Beyond Belief

"Winfield Bevins calls himself 'an accidental church planter' but there is no doubt that he is now both an experienced practictioner and a wise reflector of church planting practice. This book is a gem - concise, digestible, and practical and is at the top of my church planting course booklist."

-Ric Thorpe, Bishop of Islington, UK
