17 company name organization C HURCH P LANTING M OVEMENTS PART ONE

18 C HURCH P LANTING M OVEMENTS T EN U NIVERSAL E LEMENTS PART ONE

19 C HURCH P LANTING M OVEMENTS O NE : P RAYER Prayer is fundamental to every Church Planting Movement. It is typically the first element in a master strategy plan, and it is the vitality of the missionarys prayer life that leads to its imitation in the life of the new church and its leader.

20 C HURCH P LANTING M OVEMENTS T WO : A BUNDANT G OSPEL S OWING A Church Planting Movement does not emerge where evangelism is rare or absent. The law of the harvest applies well: If you sow abundantly you will also reap abundantly.

21 C HURCH P LANTING M OVEMENTS The converse is also true: wherever government or social forces intimidate and stifle Christian witness, Church Planting Movements are effectively eliminated.

22 C HURCH P LANTING M OVEMENTS T HREE : I NTENTIONAL C HURCH P LANTING In every Church Planting Movement someone implements a strategy of deliberate church planting before the movement can get underway.

23 C HURCH P LANTING M OVEMENTS F OUR : S CRIPTURAL A UTHORITY Church Planting Movements rest solidly on the authority of the Word of God. Even when the Bible hasnt yet been translated into the heart language, its authority is unquestioned.

24 C HURCH P LANTING M OVEMENTS F IVE : L OCAL L EADERSHIP In CPMs, missionaries walk alongside local believers cultivating and establishing local leadership rather than doing it themselves.

25 C HURCH P LANTING M OVEMENTS S IX : L AY L EADERSHIP Church Planting Movements are driven by lay leaders. These leaders are sometimes bi-vocational and always come from the general profile of the people being reached.

26 C HURCH P LANTING M OVEMENTS Reliance upon lay leadership ensures the largest possible pool of potential church planters and cell church leaders.

27 C HURCH P LANTING M OVEMENTS S EVEN : C ELL OR H OUSE C HURCHES In a Church Planting Movement churches begin as small reproducible cell churches of members meeting in homes or storefronts.

28 C HURCH P LANTING M OVEMENTS E IGHT : C HURCHES P LANTING C HURCHES As CPMs enter a multiplicative phase of reproduction, the churches themselves plant new churches. Nothing disqualifies local lay believers from winning the lost and planting new churches.

29 C HURCH P LANTING M OVEMENTS N INE : R APID R EPRODUCTION Rapid reproduction is evidence that the churches are unencumbered by non-essential elements and the laity are fully empowered to participate in this work of God.

30 C HURCH P LANTING M OVEMENTS T EN : H EALTHY C HURCHES CPMs consist of healthy churches carrying out the five purposes of: 1) worship, 2) evangelism and missions, 3) education and discipleship, 4) ministry, and 5) fellowship.

31 company name organization PART TWO C HURCH P LANTING M OVEMENTS

32 T EN C OMMON F ACTORS PART TWO

33 C HURCH P LANTING M OVEMENTS O NE : W ORSHIP IN THE H EART L ANGUAGE Worship in the common heart language of the people keeps it accessible and within reach of all members of the community and allows everyone to participate in a new churchs formation.

34 C HURCH P LANTING M OVEMENTS T WO : E VANGELISM H AS C OMMUNAL I MPLICATIONS Contrary to the Western emphasis on individualism and personal commitment, CPMs typically spread through communal lines and family ties.

35 C HURCH P LANTING M OVEMENTS T HREE : R APID I NCORPORATION OF N EW C ONVERTS I NTO THE L IFE AND M INSTRY OF THE C HURCH. In most Church Planting Movements, baptism is not delayed by lengthy discipleship requirements….

36 C HURCH P LANTING M OVEMENTS …instead, discipleship often precedes conversion and continues indefinitely. New believers become immediate witnesses, disciples, and even church planters.

37 C HURCH P LANTING M OVEMENTS F OUR : P ASSION & F EARLESSNESS Church Planting Movements are characterized by passion and a sense of urgency. New believers exhibit a boldness in the face of opposition. While boldness may invite persecution, it also fuels a Church Planting Movement.

38 C HURCH P LANTING M OVEMENTS F IVE : A P RICE T O P AY T O B ECOME A C HRISTIAN Church Planting Movements often emerge in difficult settings where following Jesus Christ may lead to severe persecution or death.

39 C HURCH P LANTING M OVEMENTS S IX : P ERCEIVED L EADERSHIP C RISIS OR S PIRITUAL V ACUUM A country or people group that has experienced a loss of leadership or a spiritual void coming from war, natural disaster or displacement may create a ripe environment for a Church Planting Movement.

40 C HURCH P LANTING M OVEMENTS In the face of this persecution, believers find strong support in the testimony of Jesus and the New Testament Church (Matt. 10:17-25).

41 C HURCH P LANTING M OVEMENTS S EVEN : O N-THE- J OB T RAINING FOR C HURCH L EADERSHIP If new church leaders must leave their churches for extended periods of theological training, the momentum of the movement diminishes. The most beneficial training brings education close to the action.

42 C HURCH P LANTING M OVEMENTS E IGHT : L EADERSHIP A UTHORITY IS D ECENTRALIZED In a CPM every cell or house church leader has all the authority required to do whatever needs to be done in terms evangelism, ministry, and church planting without seeking higher approval.

43 C HURCH P LANTING M OVEMENTS N INE : O UTSIDERS K EEP A L OW P ROFILE To encourage indigeneity, missionaries draw local believers into leadership roles through participative Bible studies and mentoring from behind the scenes.

44 C HURCH P LANTING M OVEMENTS T EN : M ISSIONARIES S UFFFER Many engaged in Church Planting Movements have suffered illness, derision and shame. Students of CPMs suggest that the affliction may be related to a higher spiritual price required for rolling back the darkness (Rev.12:12).
