***Please note that this is the final immersion of four immersions over an 18 month journey.
What is a 3DM Church Planting Learning Community?
3DM Church Planting Learning Community
The heart of God is to save the whole world, but his strategy has always been to start with a few to save the many. This is the work of Church Planting: starting small to go big, starting slow to go fast. But why is this so difficult and so few succeeding at the expense of so much time, energy and resource?
We cannot employ a different strategy to Jesus and expect the same results. The passion of 3DM is to train leaders in the simple church planting principles and strategies employed by Jesus and those who followed in his footsteps that changed the landscape of the Roman Empire over the next 270 years.
A 3DM Church Planting Learning Community trains church planters, campus planters, and other pioneering leaders how to build a missional movement with reproduction at its DNA.
Learn the effective tools, language, vehicles and practices for shaping a multiplying Families on Mission that can impact the world as the early church once did. Discover the integrated reality of weekend services, missional communities, small groups and leadership development. Be coached by experienced church planting practitioners from different contexts who are prepared to make their successes and failures the springboard for your growth and journey.
We are very excited to be hosting this final immersion in Atlanta. For these three days, we are going to be exploring what it looks like to start a Kingdom Movement. During the first Learning Community, we wrestled with the question of “Do I have a life worth imitating?” The second immersion, we dove in to the question of “Do I have a family worth imitating?” As we finish our journey together, we will explore what it looks like to create a movement that can change the world.
We will root ourselves in the scriptures (as always) and look through the lens of Jesus, as well as Paul, to explore those different principals that are necessary to go forward in creating, growing, and multiplying a Kingdom Movement. It’s going to be a great week and we are looking forward to having each of you with us.
