Top Issues Planters Face



This report was prepared by the team at Exponential in partnership with Ed Stetzer. We listened to leaders with over 500 years of cumulative experience planting and working with hundreds of planters with the over 30 national leaders involved in this project. Individual planter interviews, online surveys, and volumes of real world experience were also included in the discovery process. This information will help you plant or help you help others plant for the glory of God and the advancement of His Kingdom.

Key components:
