About UCP

Urban Church Planting was created by Dr. Matt Fretwell to help people who are seeking more understanding about the culture and church planting. While not an academic guru, Matt has a passionate heart about reaching the cities with the gospel, discerning culture, revitalizing and planting churches, and reproducible disciple-making. See his site www.matthewfretwell.com

Matt continues to press into the culture, ethnography, demographics, church planting movements, and much more … what you will find on this site is some opinions, methods, strategies, stats, perhaps some funny experiences, book reviews, and also some real experiences and real homework (which will be cited!).

A little information about Matt:
