Written by Stephen Gray and Franklin Dumond
Stephen Gray and Franklin Dumond provide a seasoned, practical, and biblical approach that all churches can follow to leave a lasting legacy for generations to come. I am in one hundred percent agreement with them that the best way for a declining church to leave a legacy is to fund the starting of new congregations. By assisting in the birth of daughter congregations, an older church leaves a legacy that will live on the lives of countless individuals and families for eternity. I encourage you to read this book, and then apply its insights. Generations of new believers will be glad you did.

Legacy Churches is a dangerous and challenging call to rethink what it means to invest in the life of the local church. Stephen Gray and Franklin Dumond use real life stories and up-to-date statistics to describe churches that are interested in doing more than keeping the doors open. This book describes legacy-leaving churches that reproduce new churches, even if it requires closing the doors of the original church. I highly recommend Legacy Churches. It is an asset to any pastor or denominational leader who desire to leave a lasting legacy beyond one single local church.
