Episode 140: Turning Vision Into Reality

Resonate’s Goal To Plant 17 Churches in 6 Years

Today, Josh Martin and Juan Cuevas join us to talk about how you can turn a vision of being a church that plants churches into a reality.  Martin and Cuevas are a part of Resonate Church in Washington which has a vision of planting 21 churches by 2021.

Notable Points:

  • Resonate has a vision called 21×21.
    • The plan is to have 21 churches planted by 2021.
    • Goal is after three years to plant a church and then plant a church every year thereafter.
  • You have to create a culture of sending in order to have a church plant that plants churches.
  • It is imperative to have an intentional student leader pipeline.
    • Utilize summer programs and give them opportunity to lead and own ministry.
    • Exposure and training are necessary in the process.
    • Missions trips can be critical.
    • Have expectations for multiplication and that they will be sent.
  • 3-2-1 Metric for house churches and future leaders.
    • 3 People baptized from their house church
    • 2 People Saved
    • 1 Disciple made
    • Look for the David not the Saul.
  • 2 year ask.
    • Every year Resonate asks students who are graduating to commit to joining a church plant for two years after graduation.
    • The key to this being successful is your vision being clear and you also being committed to it as well.
  • Have ready staff.
    • Have staff members that are experienced and have lived out the church and are ready to go on a church plant.Martin (@joshmmartin) | Twitter
    • Staff raises support so they have the ability to move where the church plant is needed.
    • Trust the Lord to use young leaders to plant churches.
