Announcing an Online #NoPlaceLeft Cohort

If you are familiar with the Four Fields and #NoPlaceLeft, but need help taking your next steps, this online cohort is for you.

This will be an online launching platform for laborers already using the Four Fields. It will function as an online team for those that have no church or team (or a fledgling team) in their local area. Participants will be encouraged to widely share the Gospel, make disciples and train others to do the same within their sphere of influence until there is #NoPlaceLeft

As this cohort ends, success will mean that each participant has planted something to replace this cohort: preferably a multiplying church, but it could also be a local team or residency or another online cohort with laborers in closer geographic proximity.

For full information about this cohort, please click here.

Global Outreach Day

I just found out about Global Outreach day, which in 2020 is a Global Outreach month. This network has the audacious goal of seeing 1 billion Gospel shares in May 2020.

1 billion. That's not a typo. I think it is a both crazy and awesome goal.

Find out more here:

If your church needs training so your people can share the Gospel with confidence, please contact me and let me know.

Announcing On the Road Season 2

For any people or place to be fully reached with the Gospel we need to see hundreds and thousands of followers of Jesus living out the Gospel and making disciples as part of their everyday life. This season I wanted to celebrate and learn from those insiders. Everyone you hear interviewed is NOT getting paid by a ministry or church.

One more thing. Could you share this trailer? A social media share would be fine, but even more I’d love it if you would think of a specific person to share this with and encourage them to subscribe. Thanks for your help!

Spiritual Interest Survey - Pekin Community High School

We recently engaged local high school students with the following questions:

  • Do you have any spiritual beliefs?
  • Which of these best describes your belief about God?
  • Which of the following describes your opinion of Jesus Christ?
  • Which of the following describes what you believe happens after people die?
  • If you could know God personally would you be interested?

Here are the results that surprised me:

  • 74% of students want to know God personally (and equally as many gave us contact information to follow up with them).
  • Over half of students believe that people go to heaven or hell after they die.
  • Only 1/3 of students described Jesus as "the only Son of God"
  • Only 15% of students have a Biblical worldview.

Let me know if you want more details on this survey.

If you or your church would like help gauging the spiritual interest in your community or in a specific demographic, please contact me.
