The grand strategy involves shaping the emerging paradigm of the Church of the 21st century around the 1st century "way of Christ and His Apostles," recovering "The Antioch Tradition" of the first 300 years of the Early Church.
For more than 30 years, we have been focused on rebuilding the foundations of the Antioch Tradition. This effort has been a pioneering work, resulting in the development of the following key elements.
A collection of resources calling the Church to return to New Testament principles in every aspect of the planting and establishing of churches around the world. The issues addressed are fundamental to seeing sustainable and thriving church networks emerge around the world.
Focused on comprehensive life and ministry development of every member of the church, designed to help every member become mature and equip leaders who will continue to shepherd and oversee the expansion of the Church globally.
An integrated, nonformal, training system, designed to equip leaders for the church at every level of training required. The system enables the training of grassroots level leaders (Type I) all the way to international leadership (Level V).
We are pioneering global initiatives and partnering with like-minded churches, church networks, and church-planting movements.
As 9 major civilizations reform around the world, each creating a new cultural center, church-planting movements need to be strategically developed in each of these civilizations. Our strategy is focused on creating partnerships with church-planting movements in each of these civilizations.
As global cities are increasingly identified and mapped as global networks of linked cities, the heart of our church-planting movements should hub around these cities. Our strategy is focused on creating partnerships and pioneering new church-planting efforts in these cities.
Three major elements – 1) ethnic identity, 2) a global network, and 3) a passion for technology, all contribute to powerful global networks that transcend country boundaries. Our strategy is focused on networking with these global tribes for powerful diaspora-based church-planting movements.
Our strategy focused on developing the next generation of church leaders who will transform the urban centers and–inner cities–of North America by reaching them with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Our strategy focused on developing the next generation of church leaders who will plant, establish, and shepherd the churches that will spontaneously multiply and transform the global cities of the world.
Our strategy focused on catalyzing economic investment and development within churches that reside in the global cities of the world–with a vision of prospering these churches and their communities.
We are intentionally looking for and organizing the next generation of Timothy-type leaders to continue to steward this movement amongst all 9 civilizations of the world.
Strategic hubs for catalyzing the acceptance, understanding and implementation of Church-Based Theological Education. Supporting the church networks and churches in a region, led by a church network.
We develop strategic partnerships with churches, denominations, mission agencies, church-planting movements and theological education institutions.
A network designed within the infrastructure of an association or denomination of churches with the intent of establishing believers and equipping leaders within the association or denomination.
A network designed by a consortium of different churches with the intent of establishing believers and training leaders for the purpose of accelerating church planting within the network of churches.
A network designed by a seminary or Bible college with the intent of serving as a resource network for an identified cluster of churches or church-planting movements.
A network designed with a mission agency for the purpose of accelerating church-planting efforts in their fields by establishing believers and training leaders within those churches.
A network designed by a strategic church's leadership team following the Antioch Tradition and developing training programs within the sphere of ministry or stewardship of that church.
