New to Five

Starting a Level 5 Multiplying Church

Ralph Moore and Jeff Christopherson

"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

Author(s)

Ralph Moore
Church Planter, Author

Ralph Moore is the founding pastor of three churches that collectively have birthed an international movement of 2,300+ churches. Beginning with just 12 people and a frightened young pastor, the Hope Chapel movement is the prolific and fruitful offspring of 80+ congregations launched from Moore’s hands-on disciple-making efforts.

In addition to pastoring Hope Chapel Honolulu with his wife, Ruby, Moore travels the globe, teaching church multiplication to pastors in startup movements. For the past couple of decades, Moore has spoken in six to eight countries each year. His global adventures take him to places as varied as Nepal, where the gospel is rapidly spreading, to England, where the gospel is being re-introduced to a culture. He also spends time in post-Soviet countries and in one unnamed large Communist nation, where the leaders he meets reinforce the messages he teaches. The ideas he shares are working so well that the country is having trouble keeping up with the rapid expansion.

Moore has devoted his life to training pastors—having repeatedly witnessed that Christianity grows fastest through the rapid reproduction of both disciples and churches. He believes that starting small is better than not starting at all and contends that bivocational pastors (with good jobs) remove financial barriers to the multiplication of churches, hastening the goal of making disciples of all nations.

Like his preaching, Moore’s written words deliver solid truth in a humorous and unassuming manner. His semi-autobiographical book, Let Go of the Ring: The Hope Chapel Story, gives readers insight into Moore as a leader who has let go of the things others covet, positioning himself to watch God do amazing things with the rest. Other books include Making Disciples, How to Multiply Your Church, Starting a New Church, Before You Launch: Pain Killers for Church Planters and Defeating Anxiety.

Jeff Christopherson

Jeff Christopherson is about fostering Kingdom movements of reproducing churches that transform neighborhoods and the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Jeff leads the North American Mission Board’s Send Network, the Southern Baptist Convention’s church-planting arm.

He is the author of Kingdom Matrix: Designing a Church for the Kingdom of God, and co-author (with Mac Lake) of Kingdom First: Starting Churches that Shape Movements. In it, he and Lake call readers to imagine a movement that vividly remembers the insubstantial days of a mustard seed with a sense of awe and wonder when looking at the indescribable harvest that stands all around before us.

Jeff and his wife, Laura, live in Milton, Georgia. They have two married children, Kelley and James. Connect with him on Twitter @Christopherson3.
