It was about a year into the life of COMMUNITY when I was sitting in a little Mexican restaurant at a table by myself thinking about the future of this new church. It was while sitting there that I started scribbling on a napkin (see pic) the dream of being a reproducing church. The dream was from God and it was a dream of a church that would meet in multiple locations and would continually reproduce all over Chicago and then beyond. Today, COMMUNITY has nine locations in Chicago with 5,000 people attending each weekend and in addition to that our NewThing Network now has 22 churches across the U.S and one in the Philippines. Every one of these campuses and every one of these churches are committed to this dream of reproducing to accomplish the mission of Jesus.
I know the power of discovering God’s dream in my life and I would like for every one of you to discover
the dream that God has for you. That is why NewThing is hosting the first-ever Discover the Dream, a pre-conference event to the Catalyst conference in Atlanta. The Discover the Dream event is an invitation-only event being held October 8th from 8am to 11:30am; and as a frequent reader of this blog you are specifically invited to attend! Cool, huh? We are looking to connect with emerging leaders who dream of being a reproducing church so we can put you on the path to discovering how to make that dream a reality. A generous breakfast will be provided, and the experience will be offered at no charge to the first 100 people who register. Spaces are filling up fast, so register now by clicking HERE. Come and join me for this one-of-a-kind event, Discover the Dream.
