Francis Chan

Francis Chan (born 1967) is the former founding pastor and teaching pastor of Cornerstone Community Church in Simi Valley, California. After being raised by his Buddhist grandmother in Hong Kong, Francis came to America at the age of five. His mother, stepmother and father all tragically died before his 13th birthday. Francis came to know the Lord in high school and in 1994 he and his wife Lisa started Cornerstone Community Church in Simi Valley. From just 30 original attendees, Cornerstone grew to 1,600 members by 2000. Francis stepped down from his role at Cornerstone in 2010 - by which time the church had 4,000 regular attendees. He believed God was calling him and his wife to take a 'step of faith' to launch a new ministry as an extension of Cornerstone Church, in a large city in America. Since 2011, Chan has concentrated his church planting efforts on San Francisco, where he has been involved in Abundant Life Christian Fellowship, a multiethnic, non-denominational evangelical church.

At Cornerstone Francis started up diverse and influential ministries including Cornerstone Television and Eternity Bible College (from 2004). He has been a highly sought-after speaker at many Christian colleges and youth conferences in the US and internationally. His commitment is to teach directly from the Bible and his passion is to see the next generation of American Christians display a much deeper love for Jesus.

Francis is committed to radical gospel-centred generosity in relation to his own finances. He gives away the majority of his income to charities, including the royalties from sales of his books and training resources. He is on the board of directors for Children's Hunger Fund and World Impact. Francis has used astute investments in restaurants and real estate to finance his own mission outreach efforts.

Francis is the best-selling author of several books, teaching DVDs and study guides. His book Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God has topped a million sales since its release in 2009, and all the proceeds are donated to charity. With an authentic message, a radical call to true faith and a dare to fall head over heels in love with God, Crazy Love's challenge has resonated in hearts of all ages.

Francis and his wife Lisa, have seven children, and live in San Francisco.

Mark Beuving

Mark Beuving (MDiv, Master's Seminary) is professor of interdisciplinary studies at Eternity Bible College in Simi Valley, California, and co-author with Francis Chan of several workbooks and the New York Times bestseller, Multiply. He lives in Simi Valley with his wife and their two daughters.

Necessary and useful
5 stars By Luke, Mar 08 2018
As with all of Chan's books this is a great resource and easy read. The format of this book leads to great discussion and demands that you do something about God's call to disciple.

Challenge Accepted!
4 stars By Raj, Mar 28 2013
I have read a number of books on this topic and this one strikes me as the easiest to grasp. Many others are wrought with heavy theology and often serve as great "teaching material" but don't challenge the individual specifically to apply and take action.

Chan's motive cannot be questioned; he wants all believers to take seriously the call to train and disciple others. His methodology is to release EVERY believer in this great work, a concept that will be found objectionable by most. I think his concepts need to be taken with a grain of salt and applied in our ministerial contexts with prayerful meditation and a sure resolve of character.

Problematic reading
3 stars By Stuart, Feb 13 2013
Chan is driven about the need for discipleship. This book demands that we do something about what his previous book 'Crazy Love' talked to us about. For Chan, discipleship can be done alone or in a corporate (church) setting. I do have problems with the book, however, especially as someone who has been part of a 'discipling' system. For example, Chan would have a young disciple being a disciple-maker regardless of his or her maturity in the faith. I have personally seen this approach played out to devastating effects in my former congregation and to the group of churches I used to belong. Entrusting to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others (2 Timothy 2:2) is not for everyone, and definitely not for the spiritually immature. I appreciate that Chan is trying to move people out of the perceived complacency of their faith, but I think that discipling on an individual basis is fraught with danger, unless there is significant teachingtraining given.
