Now that's Multiplication!
In 2015, and again in 2016, I had the privilege to meet Ying Kai, missionary to Asia. He has seen over 2 million people water baptized and 150,000 churches planted! That’s multiplication!
It’s fascinating to note that, Ying Kai and his team didn’t focus on finances, seminary trained leaders, buildings or size of church before planting as most churches were small. Maybe small is the new big? He realized a timeless truth, making disciples and multiplication go together.
I wonder if we should take our models from the East?
In the 1880’s the Methodists in North America were planting at least one church a day, sometimes two a day! That’s multiplication!
