Every Greenhouse Church may have it’s own unique style, emphasis, and training curriculum. But all Greenhouse Churches can take residents (future church planters) through a process of ministry development that includes Looking (at healthy ministry), Learning (ministry skills), Leading, and Launching (starting a new ministry within the Greenhouse and “handing it back” to the church before heading out to plant). There are all kinds of resources for each of these phases.
In the following link, you will find a compilation of some of the best books for each stage of residency. Starting a residency doesn’t have to be complex. It may be as simple as identifying a potential planter and encouraging him to read 2 books from each section while going through the residency ‘L’s”.
