  6. Multiethnic, With a Twist • “Multi-ethnicity” and “panta ta ethne.” • Hebrew “am” and “goyim.” • Greek “laos,” “demos,” “polis” and “ethnos” • English “nations” and “peoples (ethnics)”

  7. A New Term– “Polyethnic” • “Multi-ethnicity” attempts to blenderize cultures • Seeks lowest common denominators • Ignores or obliterates ethnic distinctives/worldviews • “Polyethnic” is an affirmation of cultures • Affirms commonalities • But not at the expense of cultural/worldview distinctives

  9. Missional • Missional is an evangelism, discipleship, and ministry approach for being the church in which the church has: • An Acts 1:8 approach for its mission • Incarnational • Every believer a missionary • Evangelism, discipleship, and ministry are one • Spiritual Inhaling-Exhaling

  11. Multiplying • The Realities and Issues of Church Planting Movements • Mark 4:1-20– “The Parable of the Sower” shows God’s heart. • The realities of 21st century life show that CPM’s are the only way we will ever reach significant numbers of non-believers.

  12. CPM- Definition • A Church Planting Movement is occurring • when local churches, • through the use of their lay members and staff, • are engaging the lost and • planting indigenous local churches • whose lay members go out and plant additional generations of churches. • Doubling of the churches begins to occur every 4-5 years.

  18. Wrap-up • Key Elements • Identify the lost, unreached people groups and people group segments God wants you to reach. • Research, at the worldview level, to identify the bridges and barriers to the gospel within your people group. • Design an evangelism/discipleship process that replaces faith in the barriers with faith in Christ. • Implement your design.
