Here’s a story to warm your heart. It comes from one of the fastest growing churches in America.

From a movements perspective, being in the top 100 fastest growing churches is not the point.

The church I’m talking about is Family Church in West Palm Beach Florida. Led by Jimmy Scroggins.

  • 9th fastest growing church in the USA.
  • Attendance: 3,145
  • Growth in 2014: +802 (34%)

Rankings come and go. Churches rise and fall. Jesus didn’t come just to plant a church, he came to spark a movement that multiplies disciples and churches. Everywhere.

This is a growing church that is fuelling movements. They have trained thousands of people to connect, share the gospel, make disciples. They already have streams of multiplying disciples. They have begun to launch church planting teams with zero budget and no buildings — no resources apart from the Word and the Spirit and some great training and mentoring.

It’s still early days, but this church is working hard at doing the right things, and trusting God to do what he alone can do.

3 Circles Life Conversation Guide [updated]


We’ve just finished a week of mission in Leicester. More to come on that.

A quick update to this post to say that the Three Circles gospel presentation served us well during the mission. It's easy to train people to use it. It's culturally relevant in the way it picks up the theme of "brokenness." It's easy to drop in your own story using the Three Circles. We're going with Malachi's version that replaces "Gospel" with "Jesus" as the title for the third circle and includes the graphic of the Cross. He also uses "Turn and Believe" rather than "Repent and Believe."

Soon I'll be introducing the Three Circles into our Following and Fishing training.

I suggest you learn the Three Circles and begin using it. Talking about Brokenness is a great lead in with people.

I’m learning this gospel presentation demonstrated here by Jimmy Scroggins. I’ll learn it, practice it, then use it and see what happens.
