A few months ago I heard the legendary Dr. Elmer Towns of Liberty University/Theological Seminary talk about a word that I have come to love…the word exponential. I love it because it teaches us not just disciple-making, but how to grow disciple-makers who produce more disciple-makers. But the secret is not just principles . . . growing churches need an entire makeover . . . Isn’t that called revival? We need workable methods, powerful prayer, faith to move mountains and bold exponential evangelism in 2019!
Here is how your church can grow exponentially.
· Exponential VISION
· Exponential PRAYER
· Exponential EVANGELISM
· Exponential TEACHING
· Exponential WORSHIP
· All this energy led to exponential BOLDNESS
When we get people praying for exponential growth . . . revival will come! That’s why I want to URGE you as churches and as a people to join the NKBA in 40 Days of Prayer for SPIRITUAL AWAKENING in NKY. We will have a Facebook page (Praying for NKY) that will provide daily devotionals and will promote our Spiritual Awakening Conference, March 8-9, 2019 at Main Street Baptist Church in Alexandria with Dennis Pethers.
Dennis is the Founder and International Pioneer of The Rooftop Movement www.therooftop.org Dennis became a disciple of Jesus having been an atheist. Following his decision to follow Christ, Dennis trained at Spurgeon’s College and then pastored a ‘missional community’ on the edge of London. For most of His ministry Dennis has been engaged in evangelism and disciple-making. Between 1993 and 2014, Dennis founded and led ‘Viz-A-Viz Ministries’ an organization that reached tens of thousands of people in the UK who are beyond the walls of the church. In 2014, Dennis founded The Rooftop Ministries, a global movement that is encouraging and equipping churches to join Jesus in His mission by making disciples among people who are beyond the walls of the church. This is a great hope I have for our NKBA churches!
My prayer for the NEW YEAR?
Let’s ask God to give us exponential faith to move mountains – Mark 11:22-24
Let’s pray for exponential vision to revitalize our churches.
Let’s start doing what Jesus promised, “Let’s change the world.”
I look forward to all that God has in store for us in 2019!
