Shaun Wissmann

Church planter of Via Vite in San Bernardino, CA

“Like me, you might be asking, “What does missional and multiplication look like in my context?” I think you would be hard-pressed to find anything more helpful than the Missional Church Multiplication course. Starting from the roots, these seasoned practitioners walked me through deep understanding to practical and contextual application. I am so grateful that they helped me reimagine what it means to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ in my city. I feel encouraged, equipped, and inspired!!!”

Matt Yi

Church Planter of Church of the Beloved, DC Metro in Centreville, VA.

“Want to re-imagine church? This course single-handedly changed my understanding of being missional! It helped me to understand how God at His core is a missional God and how this truth can be embodied through the life of a community. One of the greatest benefits of this course is how JR Woodward and the other speakers are not just theologians discussing concepts and ideas, but they are also practitioners who offer practical initiatives and strategies. This is an impactful course for churches who are looking to become a multiplying missional church. For a church planter like myself, it has been an essential resource at the ground level and I would highly recommend these modules to other church planters!”

Michael Pumphrey

Church Planter of Awaken Church, Virginia Beach, VA

“As the culture around us is continually changing we “the Church” need to stop trying to create all the same people with all the same thinking. The teachings within these modules were helpful to reimagine who “the Church” is called to be while enlarging our imagination for God’s people. Until this takes place within our churches we will not reach the lost and broken world around us effectively. The practitioners through this course have enlarged my imagination for God’s Church. I believe the same will be true for you!”

Chris Morton

Community Developer at Austin Mustard Seed, Owner Morton Wordsmith

“It’s easy for me to feel stuck in the day-to-day struggles and unavoidable minutia of planting a church. This course is just the kick I needed to start dreaming again. It provides a big vision, like Jon Tyson’s approach to networking congregations. It is also provides tangible steps, like Aaron Graham’s reminders about stewarding finances. Each presenter is a practitioner who has learned these lessons the hard way. Watch it now!”

Matthew Mitchell

Church Planter, New City Church, Chesapeake, VA

“Do you long to see those who are far off from Christ be brought near to him through the witness of the church? Do you long to teach your people what Jesus meant when he said, “As the Father has sent me, in the same way I am sending you?” Have you sensed that your role as a pastor is not that of a ‘rock star CEO' but rather one who equips God’s people to enter into Jesus' mission? If so, then you need this course. If you learn half as much from these practitioners as I have, it will be more than worth your time.”

Don't Just Plant Churches

Alan Hirsch, one of the most well-known thought leaders in the missional space says in module four of this course,

Don’t plant the church. Plant the gospel in a way that makes sense to a generation. And out of that, the church will emerge.

If programs saved people, we would have already reaped a harvest. Unfortunately, they don't, and that's why this course matters. This course will help you learn how to lead and pastor in a way that makes sense to this generation, so that you can better plant the gospel and see healthy missional churches emerge.

Above all else, we want to help you root every step of your church in the mission of God's kingdom.
