What is Multipli?

Multipli trains the People of God (1 Peter 2:9) to lead and oversee new communities where anyone can discover Jesus.

Research reveals, and our experience convinces us, that most unbelievers aren’t connected with a Christian they respect… and won’t be… until a respectable Christian steps into their lives.

We also believe many Christians have a big heart for unbelievers but don’t know how to share their faith, or have been overlooked as unlikely to lead the mission of God.  Just like so many other past People of God – Abraham, Moses, Esther, etc.

So, why Multipli?

There are not enough churches poised to create space for unbelievers to explore Jesus in an organic, natural way…

And Church leaders are more aware than ever they must invest and release the People of God into mission; however…

  • In a 2021 Barna survey, 96% of pastors agreed: “For my Church to be healthier,  lay people must take more responsibility.”

 

  • But… Only 9% of those same pastors said: “My church leadership is very good at developing new leaders.”

Multipli exists to stand in the gap between churches and unbelievers, training the People of God for relational, evangelistic posture and movemental practices in order to lead new communities, where unbeliever can explore Jesus.

Multipli’s mandate for answering the problems of this world is:Train the People of God. Because they are capable of extending the Gospel and expanding the reach of the local Church

On a yearly basis, the average Christian won’t have a single soiritual conversation with a friend who doesn’t follow Jesus.

But the People of God were never meant to be average:

  • They bear God’s image and with it a powerful dignity.  (Gen. 1:26-27)
  • They are handcrafted by God for extraordinary things. (Eph. 2:10)
  • They are not left to wonder about purpose in life, they are sent by Jesus. (John 20:21)

When Christians practice the ways, rhythms, and habits of Jesus in order to build and multipli new communities, unbelievers can experience belonging and explore Jesus in an organic, natural way…

…and a new story gets told.

A story filled with forgiveness from guilt, healing from shame and power over powerlessness.

Multipli exists to see this story spread across relationships, cities and regions.
