What would a multiplication movement look like in the West? There is no better example of church multiplication than the Wesleyan revival, which grew exponentially in the early years. The movement started with only a handful of people in the 1700s and grew into a movement that reached thousands of people and established hundreds of societies in England and the United States. From 1850 to 1905, American Methodism averaged planting more than seven hundred churches per year. Do the math! Below, Winfield Bevins goes deeper into these themes that he explores in Marks of a Movement.
