Launching with a Multiplication Vision (Part 1)

January 26, 2017

When we plant a church, we should plant it with the same kind of vision that Jesus had when He started His church.

It is not enough to simply aspire to multiplication. As Larry Walkemeyer points out, “What you launch with, you will live with.” If multiplication is not built into the DNA of your church plant before day one, it will probably never be a part of your church. In this training video, Larry gives four essentials to launching with a multiplication vision.

Jesus wasn’t trying to get people gathered, he was trying to get people going!

Join Larry at Exponential East 2017, where he will be leading workshops on multiplication and church planting.

Key Multiplication Vision Highlights:

  • The four essentials of launching with a multiplication vision
  • The difference between a “lake church” and a “river church”
  • Eight Biblical convictions to shape your vision

Larry serves as the Lead Pastor of Light & Life Christian Fellowship in Long Beach, CA. Starting with a handful of committed “white folks,” the church has grown into a large multi-ethnic church transforming its tough urban neighborhood. A priority on local and global church planting has led to the start of 19 churches nationally and dozens in Ethiopia, Philippines and Indonesia.
