Jesus designed His church to be
…a movement, not an institution,
…a family, not a formula,
…a body, not a building,
…a people, not a program, and
…a reproducing organism, not a rigid organization.
Inside of any living organism are living systems that work underneath the surface so flourishing and reproduction are the natural outcomes. Think of your body. In your body there are nine different systems. When these nine systems are all in balance, we say that the body is healthy. And when a body is healthy, life, growth, and reproduction happen naturally.
Over and over again, the Scriptures call us to think of the church in terms of movement and living systems: a family and a field, a body and a bride, multiplying seeds and catalytic yeast. All living systems have the capacity to self-organize, to sustain themselves and move toward greater complexity and order as needed.
This year, join us for a journey into the Movement System. Like an Operating System for a computer, the Movement System needs to downloaded and then powered up by the Spirit in your context.
Let 2022 be that for you.
We will join together as a global family from all regions of the world to Power Up the Movement System in our churches and networks. NewThing is making available to you five Catalysts to help you power up the Movement System in your context. Join us for conversation, dialogue, incredible input from amazing thought leaders and best in class practitioners at the Global Leadership Community. Decide now to join this journey, engage all six catalytic gatherings, and let the Spirit power up movement in and through you.
Will you join Jesus this year by letting Him activate the Movement System?
