Sending Church: Stories of Momentum and Multiplication (by Dan Smith)

Spinoffs are a risky business-a gamble that should only be taken by large, resourced churches that can afford to take the hit. Congregations need to have a certain amount of people or money before seriously considering the insanity of multiplication. Regular churches are off the hook. They can just focus on building up one church, letting others worry about a bigger vision for the region, city, province, or world.

Right?

In this FREE eBook, Dan Smith, Lead Minister of Momentum Christian Church (Greater Cleveland) drops stories, parables, insights, challenges and a lot of humor about being a Sending Church. In 2005, Smith led the team that started Momentum. On paper, Momentum's just a regular church. For their first nine years, they averaged 250 people or less. But the numbers don't tell the whole story. In obedience to God's vision for multiplication, the church has created a strong "sending culture" to help reach more broken people through new churches. Sending Church tells the story of Momentum through the lens of multiplication, but it doesn't stop there. With brutal honesty, Smitty shares the difficulties and rewards of giving before you can afford to give, and sending before you can afford to send.

Key Takeaways:

  • How Scripture reveals a sending culture in the early church
  • Why large and small churches can make an impact by sending money and people
  • Encouragement from the battle stories of Momentum and other inspiring sending churches
  • Practical advice on how to create-or destroy-a sending culture
  • Suggested words/vision-casting scripts for the sending leader
  • Honest thoughts about chasing the "large church" dream vs. chasing the "multiplying church" dream
  • Insights about the most fruitful years of a church's life and, based on that, how to lead with urgency
