Wired to Plant
Wired to Plant
Choosing the right lead pastor is critical for new church success. With 33 years of church planting experience, Dr. Paul Williams has learned to identify and hire high-capacity leaders who effectively plant growing churches. The result has been rapid and consistent growth in churches planted by the Orchard Group, one of the nationâ€™s largest church planting ministries.
In 2011, utilizing the DiSC test, Paul completed a study of 50 lead church planting pastors. The resultsâ€”the focus of this bookâ€”provide great help to anyone hiring church planters; anyone considering church planting; or anyone teaching about new churches. Wired to Plant helps readers see the possibilities and challenges of church planters in a whole new light.
Paul Wiliams is the chairman of the Orchard Group, Inc., a church planting organization in New York that has planted over 70 churches, primarily in New York and the Northeast.

Paul is also Editor-at-Large and a weekly columnist with Christian Standard magazine, and serves as Preaching Associate at LifeBridge Christian Church in Longmont, Colo., and Christ’s Church of the Valley in Philadelphia.
