New To Five

Starting a Level 5 Multiplying Church


“Ralph Moore and Jeff Christopherson have poured 70-plus years of multiplication experience into this amazing new resource for leaders! New to Five: Starting a Level 5 Multiplying Church should be mandatory reading for anyone and everyone involved in church planting. I believe it’s one of those watershed works that church experts will look back on in 10 years and conclude it was a key catalyst in seeing the percentage of churches in the United States that ever reproduce increase from less than 4 percent to greater than 10 percent.” From the foreword by Todd Wilson
