MULTIPLICATION WONT HAPPEN WITHOUT …

Recently, someone asked me to boil down the concept of multiplication as far as I possibility can. So here goes.
Looking at many of the churches that are multiplying I’ve noticed there are five things that I see in every one of these churches and oddly enough they coincide with our book Dinosaurs to Rabbits: […]

Dinosaurs to Rabbits: Introduction – Chapter 08

Ready, Set, Go

Hopefully you’ve concluded that multiplication is a mindset and the way to do ministry and not merely a program or model. It’s a new world view, a new way of living that’s on fire to reach as many people as possible in the shortest amount of time. As such it can embrace […]

Dinosaurs to Rabbits: Introduction – Chapter 06

I forget who first said it but “culture eats strategy every time.” Church culture is the intersection of vision, values, narrative, leaders, and practices that characterize and guide an organization as shown in the graphic.

The reason any kind of major change is so difficult and takes so long is because of culture. A church’s […]

Dinosaurs to Rabbits: Chapter 04 – Introduction

Dinosaurs to Rabbits: Turning Mainline Decline to a Multiplication Movement

Mainline churches are at a crossroads – either they wake up to the major trend of our time or they will continue to be irrelevant or, worse yet, go out of existence.

What trend am I talking about? I’m talking about multiplication. Instead of struggling to stay afloat mainline church leaders should learn how to […]

Two Sides of the Same Coin

It seems as if politics are taking center stage in a lot of Facebook conversations. And many of the conversations inevitably turn to social justice. In fact if you read the online publications of most denominations you will find them filled with social justice projects.

Recently I’ve been involved in a couple of conversations online […]

Dinosaurs to Rabbits: Turning Mainline Decline into a Multiplication Movement

Mainline Christianity has been in a free fall decline since the mid 1960s.  Some want to blame it on a changing culture; others say it’s the way all organizations go sooner or later; while others just throw up their hands and give up the ghost.

The truth is, we don’t believe any of these excuses […]
