Every pastor’s vision, church, and community are unique.
And there are specific activities that all church leaders are invited to participate in that producing the discipleship multiplication that we’re looking for.
The model we follow is pretty simple as we focus on these four key areas: evangelism, discipleship, leadership development, and focused church planter training. This is the main and the plain, as we say in the Vineyard, of church multiplication. We are here to resource you to be even more effective in these areas.
We are a people of the kingdom of God who pursue culturally relevant mission in the world. We believe that evangelism is one of the most important priorities for anyone who wants to be part of helping God’s kingdom grow and multiply. Healthy Vineyard churches and leaders can never let up on the gas pedal of evangelism for a few key reasons.
Discipleship is the heart and soul of Christian life, and of every healthy church. Jesus has called each one of us to follow him and learn to be just like him. He has invited us to cultivate the kind of integrity and character he has. To develop the intimacy with the Father that he enjoys. To bring peace, truth and healing the way that he did. And while we do all that, to teach others around us how to do the same.
Healthy churches—ones that are developing, growing, and maturing—need to be continually recruiting, developing, and empowering new leaders. A new leader can greatly multiply what you can do in evangelism, discipleship, and other areas of ministry.
