2) Ed Stetzer: Creating a Culture of Multiplication

We loved Ed Stetzer’s article about “Creating a Culture of Multiplication,” …

 

www.christianitytoday.com/edstetzer/2019/october/church-planting-series-creating-culture-of-multiplication.html

 

Stetzer nails it when he explains that missionaries and church planters need constantly to help local churches articulate the need for a culture of multiplication in the every day local church too. Stetzer got it right — again.

1) Wow — This 2414 Book is Stupendous ("A Testimony to All Peoples")

You can buy it at…

https://smile.amazon.com/24-14-Testimony-All-Peoples/dp/1687755868/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0

But did you ever hear the phrase, “You never get something for nothing?” I’m afraid 2414 is out to break the mold. Their new book, “2414 — A Testimony for All Peoples,” which is intentionally posted online absolutely free of charge and it’s packed FULL of vision, scripture, case studies, and helpful tools. Compiled by top-notch trainers (Dave Coles and Stan Parks), it’s actually a collection of a TON of articles and training pieces. And you can find it TODAY on the web for free in all its 345-page splendor simply by browsing to:

 

www.2414now.net/wp-content/uploads/Compiled-2414-Book_For-Conversion_Paperback_v2.pdf

 

You’ll learn about church-planting movements (CPM — otherwise known as disciple-making movements or DMMs). You’ll see how groups of all kinds fit in with that strategy. You’ll read about case studies, movements in the Bible, and lessons learned in the American church and with agencies. Plus you’ll be able to acquire all kinds of helpful tools for your own work. They could have asked $20. But they didn’t. Get the printed version for $8.52 and the Kindle version for under $1. Or just download the PDF version for free. It’s your choice. Well done, 2414!

 

3) Where Can We Learn More about How to Make and Multiply Disciples?

There are two recent books from two of the largest CPMs/DMMs in the world: Ying and Grace Kai’s Training for Trainers (WIGTake, 2018), and Victor John and Dave Coles, Bhojpuri Breakthrough (WIGTake 2019). Both books are available for volume discount at

These two movements alone have resulted in more than two million baptisms. Please don’t forget to keep praying for Grace, who, interestingly, is the discipler of Ying. She’s had a stroke, though, so far, it looks fairly mild. She’s lost some mobility, however. Please pray hard for her.

 

6) Get Vetted — then Read Accel’s First (August) Edition

Here’s a new journal by movement leaders FOR movement leaders. Accel magazine shares articles like, “The Most Exciting Aspects of Church Planting Movements,” “The Kingdom Business Project Summary,” as well as case studies about movements. Some of the key contributors are the same coaches who have helped leaders like Chris Galanos (From Megachurch to Multiplication) and many others who are multiplying churches and disciples. This journal appears to be helpful not only to those working overseas, but also those seeking to launch movements in North America, Australia, New Zealand and Europe. The wild part is – it’s free of charge, once you’re vetted. Start by filling out the form at:

3) "More Disciples" (the Book) Now Available on Audible.com

Are you the type that you would rather listen to an oral retelling of a book rather than sit down to read it? Do you have blurred vision by the time you get home at night? Want to make better use of your 15-minute commute to work? Regardless of the case, we hope you’ll make good use of the new book, More Disciples, now available in audio form on Audible.com. In fact, Audible has teamed up with DMM training globally by agreeing to donate $75 for every new Audible customer that signs up at this link:

 

www.audible.com/pd/B07RQVN63F/?source_code=AUDFPWS0223189MWT-BK-ACX0-151337&ref=acx_bty_BK_ACX0_151337_rh_us

 

Let us repeat that one more time: If you’re a new Audible customer and you use the above link to sign up, you will pay the absolutely normal price for Audible. (In fact, we think you get the first month free.) But once you continue your membership (and become a paying customer), Audible has teamed up to sponsor future DMM trainings and/or the translation of the Zúme course (a web-driven online and in-life experience which ALSO trains participants in the very same DMM principles as in live trainings). If just 10 people sign up, they’ll contribute $750! And there’s no upper limit. (They must appreciate you, new customers.) And from what we understand, you get to listen to many (most?) titles on Audible.com at no extra charge. It’s… all you can eat oral-storytelling on steroids!

 

Or — you can just purchase More Disciples at the price they set. Any proceeds from the sale of the audio book (or the Kindle version or the print version) also go toward DMM trainings. Zero money goes to the authors personally. Learn more at…

 

https://www.amazon.com/More-Disciples-Becoming-Multiplying-Followers/dp/1939124166

 

More Disciples is published by WIGTake (“What’s it going to take?”), a publishing company launched by David Garrison. The purpose of the book is to help you figure out how to make and multiply disciples, groups (churches), leaders, and movements in the land(s) you love. It’s written by Doug Lucas, with an introduction and epilogue by Curtis Sergeant and the foreword by David Garrison.
