Frequent speaker at church renewal seminars and Christian education conferences. In November of 1972, Dr. Getz, along with several families, launched Fellowship Bible Church in Dallas (now Chase Oaks Church). Since that time the work has grown to include 17 churches in the Dallas Metroplex and a number of Fellowship churches in other parts of the country. The basic principles forming the foundation for this new ministry are spelled out in Dr. Getz's book, Sharpening the Focus of the Church.
