God's mission needs movement leaders. Jesus pioneered something completely new in human history—a dynamic missionary movement intent on reaching the world. His mission is as clear and as relevant today as in the days of the early church: to make disciples everywhere, baptizing them and teaching them to obey everything Jesus has commanded.

What People are Saying About This

Ed Stetzer

"The history of global missions is rich and encouraging. Even in this complex age we can learn a great deal from those who have gone before. In Pioneering Movements, Steve Addison provides us with a compelling reminder of the important role godly leaders play in the proliferation of the gospel for God's glory. Addison's book is both instructive and inspirational."

Steve Smith

"Pioneering Movements paints a picture of the difference between spiritual leaders who start churches and those who launch movements. Addison provides a delicious cross-section of the traits, efforts and focus of men and women, expatriates and nationals who cross that line to spark movements that change their worlds."

Rick Wood

"Hundreds of thousands of books will be published this year, but only a few have the potential to change the world. This latest book by Steve Addison is one of those few books. Movements of all kinds change our world on a daily basis. Pioneering movements of discipleship are the most powerful movements of all because they change communities of people at the heart level. What Steve has created is a manual to help all of us become the pioneers of these world-changing movements. This book is an essential resource for the missions community."

Alan Hirsch

"With sensitivity to history and an ability to extract principles from the lives of the apostolic pioneers who have gone before us, Steve gives us an inspirational peek into movements and the people who lead them."

Sam Metcalf

"The best thing about this book is the stories and the people—it's all real! This isn't wishful idealism or bland theology. With the type of leadership Steve describes and the powerful presence of the Spirit of God, movements are possible, and God expects and even longs for our participation. As a practitioner, Steve gives us plenty of 'how-tos.' The choice to engage is ours."

Jerry Trousdale

"Steve Addison's third book on movements builds on his previous writings by inviting Christ followers to become 'movement pioneers' wherever they live. Pioneering Movements is filled with examples of such people from the early church, Christian history and modern day movements. Steve makes a compelling case that God can use any Christ follower for disciple making, while also providing simple, practical steps to get started."

David Garrison

"Multiplying movements are the key to fulfilling the Great Commission. In Pioneering Movements, Steve Addison unpacks the leadership required to spark and sustain movements of disciples and churches. I love this book! It is biblically sound, practical and inspiring."
