Some thoughts on Organic Church

“We believe that church should happen wherever life happens. You shouldn’t have to leave life to go to church.” I remember when I was younger (and more idealistic for some silly reason), I wanted every time I got together with friends for us to have a prayer time, or a singing time – worship, basically […]

Our calling at Church Multiplication Associates & @CMAResources is to multiply healthy disciples, leaders, churches and movements.  Our friend, Neil Cole has articulated many of the things we have learned in these areas in his written works.  Below is a listing of those resources authored by Cole and their focal points:   Disciples: If you […]

Absence of structure…a major asset

‎“The absence of structure, leadership & formal organization, once considered a weakness, has become a major asset. Seemingly chaotic groups have challenged & defeated established institutions. The rules of the game have changed.”   The Starfish & the Spider- The unstoppable power of leaderless organizations by Rod Beckstrom & Ori Brafman   Watch author Ori […]

Foreigners and Aliens – quote from Roland Allen

This year is exactly one century since an English missionary named Roland Allen wrote a ground-breaking book, Missionary Methods: St. Paul’s or Ours?  In the book, Allen wrote truthfully and prophetically, “Foreigners can never successfully direct the propagation of any faith throughout a whole country. If the faith does not become naturalised and expand among […]

What Went Wrong with the Jerusalem Model?

Although the book is exemplary, one particular discussion […]

Welcome to the Priesthood by Brad Brisco

When attempting to transition an existing church in a more missional direction I believe one of the topics of discussion must surround the concept of “the priesthood of all believers.” For me the “priesthood of all believers” is not just a theological perspective on there being no need for an earthly mediator to God, but […]

Is Leadership Permanent? by Traver Dougherty

Leadership in an organic church expression looks a little different than what we’re used to; in an organic expression, leadership is truly servant leadership, exemplified in practice. I recently read a book by Jean Vanier that nicely illustrates this principle. Vanier founded an intentional community of faith whose purpose was to live out the Kingdom by […]

Samson: Holiness, Character & Gifting by Maurice Smith

“And Samson said, ‘Let me die with the Philistines.’ Then he bowed with all his strength, and the house fell upon the lords and upon all the people who were in it. So the dead whom he killed at his death were more than those whom he had killed during his life.” (Judges 16:30) “Strive […]
