    Can Your Church Grow Exponentially?

    Can Your Church Grow Exponentially?

    I just got word from my friends at Community Christian Church that they are offering, for the very first time, the Exponential Church Practicum on February 28 - March 1 in Chicago.  If you would like to see your church experience exponential growth, this is for you! The Exponential Church Practicum will help you and your team develop a step-by-step strategic plan for how to make it a reality! This intensive workshop is designed to provide direction for you and your entire leadership team.

    The Practicum is designed to help your staff formulate goals and action items to begin the reproducing church process. To get the most out of your experience, we recommend attending with your key staff leadership team including the Senior Pastor.

    Dave Ferguson says:  "If we want to solve Jesus' mission problem of going to 'Jerusalem...Judea...Samaria...to the ends of the earth,'  we are going to have to find a new kind of math and a new way to count that results in rapid reproduction.  That new math is exponential.  The new way to count is counting on you and your friends to start a missional church movement."

    You can see a run-down of all the topics they will be discussing right here...

    Early Bird Registration is available through the end of January... but space is limited.  For more information, or to register you or your team, go here right now...

    I would highly recommend this practicum for you and your church team... God is doing some great and truly 'exponential' things through Community Christian and the New Thing Network.  I hope you'd consider taking your team!

      “If we want to solve Jesus’ mission problem of going to ‘Jerusalem…Judea…Samaria…to the ends of the earth,’  we are going to have to find a new kind of math and a new way to count that results in rapid reproduction.”

      Is this to say that the way that it’s been done for the last 2000 years was wrong, since we have to find a new kind of math and way of doing things?

      No CS, I think it is to say that with 6 plus billion people in the world, we need to get after it a little more effectively.

      Since most churches in this country will not be all that effective and since most Christ followers will not be all that effective, maybe it is time to recalibrate our tools. 

      We both know how powerful and effective the message is, lets get it out!

      Hope you are well CS

      Leonard:

      It’s the old balance between efficacy and obedience in the end, I suppose.

      Thanks for the well-wishes.  I could be better, but God is always in control.  wink

      Maybe we should ask, “Should Your Church Grow Exponentially?”  I always wonder how the early church grew exponentially when they had no exponentially large churches and no conferences to tell them how to do it.  Large may not necessarily be good.  I have a feeling that we measure all the wrong things and therefore emphasize all the wrong things.

      ‘God is in control’ seems a bit like abdication of our participation in His work. It is good that Martin Luther was not a fatalist. He decided that he needed to take action to change the flow of things a bit. God works….through US. Who knows what ‘New Math’ might add to refocussing our efforts to Gospel purposes. History seems to indicate that we need to relearn the mission often if it is going to be alive and vital in our efforts.
      Romans 10:  14 How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? 15 And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”
      This pictures US being part of the action of God’s will.
