City Movement

Building Blocks to Unlocking the 3rd Dimension of Your City


We all want to see a movement happen in our city or geography. But the reality is that movements don’t emerge from a singular church, organization or individual. Movements are driven by collaboration and catalyzed by Kingdom-minded leaders. In City Movement, we will explore the essentials to building a thriving, collaborative city movement. In this FREE eBook, Mission Orange County Executive Catalyst Chris Lagerlof shares his experience and passion for seeing the Church multiplied and mobilized to impact and transform our cities and communities. Through seven specific building blocks, he offers what Mission OC has learned and is learning in the journey to impact every man, woman and child with the gospel—providing leaders with the tools and knowledge necessary to catalyze a movement in your city.
