Participants in September's Church Multiplication Leadership Community are considering the challenge of David Garrison to "live the vision" of church planting movements. To "live the vision" means to be personally involved in the multiplication of believers, disciples, leaders and churches. In his seminal book Church Planting Movements, Garrison documents 10 elements consistently present in church planting movements (CPMs). These elements include . . .

  1. Extraordinary Prayer
  2. Abundant Evangelism
  3. Intentional Planting of Reproducing Churches
  4. The Authority of God's Word
  5. Local Leadership
  6. Lay Leadership
  7. House Churches
  8. Churches Planting Churches
  9. Rapid Reproduction
  10. Healthy Churches

To assist those interested CPMs, Garrison has designed a "gap analysis" tool. The tool helps CPM practitioners and wannabes understand the readiness of their context for CPMs on the basis of these 10 elements. Follow this link for a copy of the "gap analysis" tool.
