Endorsements & Reviews-
"Yonggi Cho is a special servant of God . . . It would not be an exaggeration to say that the growth of Yoido Full Gospel Church is due entirely to his charismatic leadership and message. I recommend this book strongly, and I hope that more churches will be built on the foundations described in it." Rev. John Hanhum Ok "Today, the name of Yonggi Cho is one familiar to Christian leaders around the world. He has showed us that a local church can grow to almost a million congregation members. He introduced the idea of home cell groups. This book explains how these factors were all involved in the growth of Yoido Full Gospel Church. You can use the principles for dynamic growth contained in this book in your local church!" Dr. Peter Wagner "Yonggi Cho has been a unique and strong influence on the growth of world Christianity. He has influenced my thinking as well as the vision for church growth and cell philosophy. This book is filled with practical advice on church growth, which comes from Yonggi Cho's own experiences. I hope and pray that you will apply these principles to experience a great work of God in your life and ministry." Dr. Joel Comiskey
