Three Shifts to More Robust Global Engagement

As the world gets flatter it will be increasing important for the American church to shift how it engages with the global church.

NewThing North America Regional Director Dave Dummitt argues there are three essential shifts to be made.

  1. Shift from mission to global church planting.
  2. Shift to collaboration
  3. Shift from a lower investment in many projects to major investments in fewer projects.

I couldn’t agree more. The American church has a real opportunity to be part of something big and beautiful that God is doing in the world. The only question is: will it?

At NewThing we are committed to making these shifts together.

What other shifts do you think the American church needs to make to engage better with the global church? I’d love to hear from you.

 

Congrats 2|42: Growing Fast with an Eye on the Kingdom!

Here’s my HUGE shout out to Dave Dummitt and the team at 2|42 Community Church in Michigan! They have once again made the list of Outreach’s Fastest Growing Churches.

While this is a notable, there is more. Dave is also the North American Director for NewThing. He and his team have a BIG vision to help start 1,000 reproducing churches. This all originates from Dave’s fierce vision to help people know Jesus.

I have learned much working with Dave and  I love the opportunity I have to work with him and his team. Congrats 2|42!
