Moving the Church from Survival to Multiplication
By Dan Moose
As a handyman, I am always looking for good tools that will help me be more productive and better prepared to get the job done right and in a timely manner. Some people would probably say I have too many tools, but a while ago, as my wife and I were completing a project, she said, “I now see why you have all the tools you do. It makes the project go so much easier.” Many times we as leaders and pastors are looking for the ‘silver bullet’ that will solve a specific problem. The truth of the matter is that there is no such ‘bullet’ or ‘magical’ tool that is the cure-all. But I found a tool that I believe will be helpful for every church: Becoming a Level Five Multiplying Church by Todd Wilson and Dave Ferguson.
Becoming a movement of multiplying churches to reach the world for Jesus Christ is the main theme, but the ideas shared for the advancement of our churches are basic and useful for every church. I would like to focus on just two of the ideas: Biblical disciple-making and Kingdom capacity for multiplication.
