For the first time in Exponential’s 14-year history, our annual theme will take us through a book of the Bible. Our themes have always been inspired by Scripture and aligned with key verses, but this is the first time we will walk together chapter-by-chapter through Scripture.
As we explore our 2019 theme, “Made for More: Mobilizing God’s People, God’s Way,” we will look at Paul’s letter to the church of Ephesus. Paul wrote Ephesians for the body of Christ to help them discover God’s design for the church and the fullness of the mission God has for every single person He has created.
In this new FREE eBook Made for More, we highlight six key shifts that are necessary to create a healthy culture of mobilization. This healthy culture will help church leaders shift their thinking from "volunteerism" to "mobilization."
From More Effort to More Jesus
Jesus has appointed His Church to express His fullness into every sphere of society. This is our foundation for mobilizing people—equipping every disciple to grow in the Lordship of Jesus and in their ability to share the gospel where they live, work, study and play.
From More Volunteers to More Masterpieces
Every disciple is a unique, handcrafted-by-God vessel for expressing the fullness of Jesus. As leaders, we have a responsibility to lead our church to help every disciple investigate their personal calling that mobilizes them for a one-of-a-kind mission for more.
From More Guilt to More Love
God’s love for us and in us is the only sufficient motivation for mobilizing others—not guilt. We’re called to motivate people to serve by helping them understand how loved they are in Christ.
From More Hierarchy to More Missionaries
When you begin to surrender our strategies and our belief that you’re building the church while others help by filling the spots you’ve predetermined, you begin to wage the war Christ has called us to fight.
From More Programs to More Mission Fields
Jesus has provided the organization to unleash more—found in the five-fold gifting of APEST (apostles, prophets, evangelists, shepherds, teachers). We need to help people see the Church as Jesus does.
From More Strategy to More Surrender
The people of God have already been sent and strategically placed by Jesus. And for many, those places are outside the walls of your church building.
