Be Fruitful and Multiply (Hard Copy)
Church multiplication is part of the very fabric of what it means to be a church. God has always intended for His living creation to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and the church is certainly no exception.
Jesus called us to go and make disciples of all nations. That means not just a few more churches, but many more ... exponentially more. This is the work of the Kingdom that Jesus entrusted to his disciples and to us.
You can be a part of a great movement of God, cooperating with His Spirit, living out His church the way it was intended to be. You are invited to take the risk and engage in the adventure God has in store for all who desire to be fruitful and multiply!
When I think of Bob Logan I think of three things: pioneering, influencing, and waiting. First, in church planting, few of us can mention the name Bob Logan without thinking of pioneering. Bob began a new church. Then, he pioneered much of the training that most evangelical groups use for church planting and now he is pioneering church planting movements. Second, Bob has been influencing. As a matter of fact, I think Bob is the most influential thinker in North American mission in the last several decades. At first, I thought it was just my tribe/denomination, but as I spoke and consulted with other groups, I saw that Bob was everywhere I went, leaving his mark on the church planting systems throughout North America. Third, I have been waiting far too long for Bob to publish his fine work on church multiplication. I have heard him speak, used his resources, and read his articles all the while (impatiently) waiting to get my hands on something that brings it all together in one place. Finally the pioneer has stopped making me wait ‑ and for that I am deeply grateful.
