An estimated 4,000 churches are planted every year. An estimated 3,700 churches close every year. It’s not easy starting or sustaining a vital Christian witness of any kind. It’s even harder when there’s no structure to support the good work you’re doing. Guardrails offers structure to your good impulse to follow the great commission to go and make disciples right where you are.
Guardrails provides six principles that allow for sustainable growth in a church’s mission, for the health of God’s people and the sake of the world.

This book is a foundational and profound reminder that the effectiveness of the gospel in our time hinges on our capacity to disciple the nations.
by Alan Hirsch, founder of Forge Mission Training Network
In one of the most gospel-hostile environments in the country, Alan lives out the six multiplication principles he outlines in Guardrails. If you are serious about creating a multiplying discipleship culture in your church or ministry, I highly recommend this book.
