THE CHAMPION CHURCH PROCESS
As we've said, we're looking for 100 champion churches...churches that are movement ready and already at the tipping point. Once we've found a champion church, this is our full-on, spare no expenses, all-in dream. With the 100M process, our team focuses on a very few, capable churches over years of time.
For each church, there is a custom-built process, with the sole purpose of seeing the success of these champion churches live into their calling to be a movement of God. We believe that these churches will overcome the present and future challenges, provide models for other churches, develop new tools and thinking, and live into extraordinary, movemental multiplication.
Let us be clear: Our role is not to tell churches what they should do, or that there is only one way to do it. Rather, we come alongside of them and empower them to build the unique work God has set aside for them to do. It's completely custom-built.
We start the all-in process with a proprietary, scientific, analytical tool 100M built that shows how movemental your church is. This begins the conversation of where a church is at as we starting drawing out your custom-built process. (If you're interested in seeing how movemental your church is, fill out the form below and we will send you the details on the tool!)
- Once a quarter (4 times a year), two members of our team fly to you and spends two full days working with your senior leadership team, on-site, in your city. No travel is required on your part. We come to you.
- We build a custom process for each specific champion church, designed to get you from where you are to the movement of God you feel called to. No two churches will walk out the same process.
- There will always be two team members working with your church:
- One of the 100M team members will be with you the entire length of your multi-year journey, serving as a collaborator, guide and custom coach. They have fluency in all aspects of mDNA, as well as practical experience living them out. As a champion church, you will have an incredibly high degree of access to this team member.
- The other member of the 100M team will change from time-to-time, and is brought in based on your unique needs and convictions. For example, if you want to use Missional Communities as one of your vehicles for multiplying discipleship and mission, we'll bring an expert-in-class on that. Your convictions and plan determine who we bring in.
- We lead an online video coaching call in between on-site visits.
- Impromptu coaching calls are given as needed.
- Hitting the tipping point for movement is certainly a multi-year process. But to start out with, a church signs up for two-years at a time. We expect the entire process will take six-to-seven years. But we take it two years at a time...sometimes it's hard enough seeing 2 months down the road, much less more than 24 months!
- What we are describing is a spare-no-expense process. It is expensive, but we have built it on low overhead to keep expenses as low as possible. Because the cost is dependent on the specific needs of your church, there isn't a fixed price. In the next few weeks, we will have specific starting point for our price range. But that will just give you the minimum price point and the range of cost. Once we get a sense of where your church is and have some conversations on what you need, we will be able to give you a final price for your church.
