Convirtiéndonos en una Iglesia Multiplicadora Nivel 5

Guía de Campo

Todd Wilson, Dave Ferguson and Alan Hirsch

En este nuevo libro, los cofundadores de Exponential, Todd Wilson y Dave Ferguson, presentan y exploran el enfoque y el tema de Exponential de 2016: Convirtiéndose en Cinco. Convirtiéndose en una Iglesia Multiplicadora de Nivel Cincocontinúa una conversación iniciada en el libro de Exponential del 2014 Chispa: Encendiendo una Cultura de Multiplicación, profundizando a más detalles enfocándonos en cómo cada uno de nosotros puede jugar nuestro papel al mover la aguja en la multiplicación de iglesias. Mientras que Chispa introdujo estos tres elementos centrales de la cultura, en este libro, Todd y Dave insisten más en cómo los vivimos. En esta versión ampliada, Alan Hirsch también provee un capítulo y comentarios adicionales a lo largo del libro.

Enfocándose en los aspectos específicos de ayudar a las iglesias a identificar dónde se encuentran en la escala de multiplicación (Niveles 1 a 5) y lo que se necesita para convertirse en una iglesia multiplicadora de Nivel 5, Todd y Dave defienden la multiplicación y equipan a los futuros multiplicadores de iglesias para que vayan más allá del cuadro de mando de la adición y el crecimiento prevaleciente. La conclusión, dicen los autores, es que debemos repensar el sistema operativo que produce crecimiento, pero no produce multiplicación — y apuntan a un crecimiento más saludable del Reino que se centre en la multiplicación.

Nota: El libro está posicionado como una "guía de campo" para ayudar a los líderes a comparar y diferenciar entre las culturas de sustracción, adición y multiplicación.

Puntos clave:

  • Pruebas interactivas que te ayudarán a evaluar tu pensamiento y tus creencias sobre la multiplicación de iglesias.
  • Un nuevo marco y vocabulario para multiplicar iglesias, incluyendo un marco para equilibrar la adición y la multiplicación para un crecimiento saludable.
  • Un marco para discernir cinco niveles diferentes de multiplicación.
  • Cinco acciones necesarias para mover la aguja en la multiplicación y cerrar la brecha entre nuestras aspiraciones (lo que queremos ser) y nuestras prácticas (lo que realmente estamos haciendo).
  • Una exploración completa de las tres tensiones básicas que todos los líderes enfrentarán en su camino hacia convertirse en una iglesia multiplicadora de Nivel 5.
  • Apéndice útil que ofrece descripciones detalladas de los cinco niveles de iglesias multiplicadoras — equipando a cualquier iglesia para identificar dónde se encuentra actualmente y las prácticas necesarias para pasar a los siguientes niveles.
  • Información sobre una nueva herramienta de evaluación para ayudar a los líderes a discernir cuál de los cinco niveles de multiplicación (niveles 1 a 5) está viviendo su iglesia actualmente.

Todd Wilson
Exponential Director, Author

Todd Wilson is the founder and currently serves as the CEO of Exponential (exponential.org), a national non-profit ministry whose core focus is distributing thought leadership through conferences, books, podcasts, software, and small group learning communities.

I’m passionate about the local church and the starting of healthy, high‐impact new churches. I enjoy starting new things focused on Kingdom impact and multiplication, as well as helping others create an image of future possibilities and the strategy to implement them.

I’m also co-founder of discipleship.org, Passion for Planting (church-planting.net), Made for More, and the Multipliers Project.

I received my B.S. in nuclear engineering from North Carolina State University and a master’s degree equivalent from the Bettis Atomic Power Laboratory. I spent 15 years serving in the Division of Naval Reactors on nuclear submarine design, operation, maintenance, and overhaul.

After a two-year wrestling match with God, I entered full‐time vocational ministry as the Executive Pastor at New Life Christian Church where I played a visionary and strategic role for several years as New Life grew and implemented key initiatives such as multisite, externally focused, and church planting. My passion for starting healthy new churches continues to increase, and I now spend most of my energy engaged in a wide range of leading-edge and pioneering initiatives aimed at helping catalyze movements of healthy, reproducing churches.

I’m also passionate about seeing people discover and deploy their unique personal calling.

I’m a certified Life Planner and strategically invest in the lives of several leaders and organizations each year. I’ve written/co-written multiple books, including Stories of Sifted (with Eric Reiss)(2012), Spark: Igniting a Culture of Multiplication (2014), Becoming a Level Five Multiplying Church (with Dave Ferguson)(2015), Dream Big, Plan Smart (with Will Mancini)(2016)More: Find Your Personal Calling and Live Life to the Fullest Measure (2016), Dream Big Workbook (with Will Mancini)(2016), Dream Big Questions (with Bill Couchenour)(2016), Multipliers: Leading Beyond Addition (2017), The Legacy of a Hero Maker (with Dave Ferguson – 2018), Made for More (with Rob Wegner in 2018), Mega-Multi-Multiply (with Ralph Moore in 2018) and The Mobilization Flywheel (with Larry Walkemeyer in 2019).

I live in Manassas, Virginia, with my wife Anna.  We have two grown boys, Ben and Chris, and two beautiful daughter-in-laws, Therese and Mariah.

My calling?  I am an ENTREPRENEUR (my BE), who ENVISAGES OPPORTUNITY (my DO), wherever there is potential for EXPONENTIAL KINGDOM IMPACT (my GO)!

My passions?

  • My family
  • The local church
  • Kingdom opportunities with potential for impact and multiplication
  • Helping Kingdom-minded leaders find their sweet spot of calling
  • Starting new things, including healthy new churches
