The Cypress Project is an eight month coaching process training church planters to lead a more effective and missionary church, and connecting them for greater impact to their city.
Much has been said about ways to reach our cities, make disciples, and see the Church live as who she is in Christ. What are the principles and practices that could help planters and re-missioning pastors to connect the dots? One thing is true, no matter the model, if we are going to multiply missionary disciples, leaders, and churches, we likely need to start from somewhere other than where we’ve been.
We need to back up and lay down solid DNA so that Movement Thinking, Kingdom Perspective, and Harvest Focus drive our definition of disciples, leaders, and church- es. This DNA needs to influence our systems and scorecards as well. It needs to shape the practices and methods of church planters as they build missionary teams, engage lost culture, and create a transformational, gospel-centered church culture.
