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 […]

Wisdom from Our Mentor

Every time we eat, we eat the fruit of God’s tremendous reproduction power given to plants and animals. Look around out of doors; it’s everywhere — grass, trees, birds, bees, babies and flowers. All creation is shouting it! This is the way God works! . . . We ourselves don’t make the church grow or […]

Church, C.S. Lewis, and a Waste of Time

  The church exists for nothing else but to draw men into Christ, to make them little Christs. If they are not doing that, all the cathedrals, clergy, missions, sermons, even the Bible itself, are simply a waste of time. God became a Man for no other purpose. — C. S. Lewis Gleaned from Neil […]

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 […]

“I Mean Something Which We Cannot Control” by Roland Allen

If we are willing to relinquish control and allow for spontaneous multiplication in our churches, we will see the gospel go further than we ever dreamed possible. In the classic book written ahead of its time, The Spontaneous Expansion of the Church: And the Causes That Hinder It, Roland Allen describes the advantage of losing […]

A Leader Who Finishes Well

In his outstanding work “The Making of A Leader,” J. Robert Clinton studied the lives of hundreds of leaders and asked the question- “What makes a leaders finish his/her life well?” We use the answers to this question in our Organic Greenhouse Story 2 Training to push our leaders to have a long-view of finishing […]

What Demons are saying about the Church

“We want the church to be small not only that fewer men may know the Enemy [God] but also that those who do may acquire the uneasy intensity and the defensive self-righteousness of a secret society or clique.” – Uncle Screwtape to Wormwood in Letter 7 (via C. S. Lewis in The Screwtape Letters)
