Wow! I just returned from Cuba where I was working with a group of church planting leaders where I was training them to catalyze their disciple-making, church planting movement. I must confess I always receive so much more than I have to offer. This particular church planting network started in 2004 and now consists of 300 churches and missions with a vision of planting another 200 over the next two years. This is what we call exponential multiplication.
One of the lessons I walked away with is if you don’t have disciple-making values you are not going to have a disciple-making movement. God used this specific trip to solidify PTG’s disciple-making values and I can’t wait to share them with you.
I have been saying that the western church is perfectly designed to get the results we are getting, religious consumers. I am more convinced than ever that we need a new operational system that includes values that shape our culture into a disciple-making culture. It is my observation that many of our popular values found in our churches actually work against the very mission that Jesus left us.
Let me challenge you to join our free webinar on April 17, at 2PM EDT. Once again, I want you to send me your existing values where I can choose one to review and improve on our webinar. My promise is I won’t be brutal, but my intent is to edify all. You don’t want to miss this webinar it could be the difference between more and better religious consumers and more and better disciples. If I don’t use your values my offer stands I will be more than glad to do a phone call to review and help align your values with your disciple-making vision.
