Share Marks of a Movement: What the Church Can Learn from the Wesleyan Revival Webinar Replay

We all want to see a movement in our day, but many of us can’t
envision such a grand reality. Thus, we are bound to look to the
past to gain wisdom for the future. As we look at the pages of church
history, there is no better example of a multiplication movement
in the West than the Methodist movement of the eighteenth and
nineteenth centuries. In this session, we will mine the depths of the
Welseyan revival in search of 5 timeless truths for today’s leaders who
are yearning for a movement in the present.


Think about the people who've invested in you and helped you become the person you are today. God puts just the right people, at just the right time, in just the right place, to speak just the right things into our lives. Most of us can name at least three hero-makers who've had a profound impact on who we've become.

Here's the cool thing... God intends for each of us to be hero-makers-- people who make heroes of others. Our greatest legacy in eternity will be measured not by what we've done, but instead by the people we've invested in. The key question is this... will we see ourselves as the HERO at the center of our story, or will we be the HEROMAKER of others at the center of God's story?

Multiplication starts in the heart of the leader. It starts with each of us surrendering the "hero complex" to a better way. It requires that we shift from being heroes to becoming hero-makers of others. We must put to death measures of success that require us to win, opting instead to assist others in winning.
