Some of my notes taken from reading Organic Church by Neil Cole. Get your hard hat, gloves and pick as we mine a little Cole.
Tony Dale: …. church multiplication is never going to be a spectator sport.
Curtis Sergeant: Organic Church was written by a practitioner.
Michael Steele: This book will ignite hearts to live out their faith in organic communities…
