In this episode of the Generosity Podcast, Todd McMichen is joined by Adam Flynt, Multiplication Pastor for The Church of Eleven22 in Jacksonville, FL area. During their conversation they discuss how one church can resource a multiplication movement both locally and globally.
“We wanted to follow Jesus into the world on His mission, so we’ve embraced multisite and we’ve embraced church planting and longterm missionary sending.”
“You need some depth on the bench to be a multiplying church. We’ve learned that’s not always as fast as the rest of the growth of the church may be.”
“Everything rises and falls on leadership.”
“You have to care for, and train, and equip the people for the work of the ministry.”
“Having a theology that is not just a program or an add-on, but it is core to who you are, is what shapes a multiplying church.”
“If multiplication is about your glory, it is for the wrong motive.”
“You will find ways to multiply that are right around you, that come out of relationships that God has put into your life.”
