Interview with Casey Crimmins - Multiply Church, Charlotte NC
Season 3, Ep. 50279
Casey and I met when he attached a very practical comment to a blog post I had written. As we became friends I found him doing most things the world needs from the church. He left a career to plant co-vocationally. He's into disciplemaking as a way of evangelism. His church is into neighboring. They are crossing ethnic divides with intentionality. This church even uses Zoom as a blessing instead of a curse. You'll need to listen to the podcast to discover how...If you are young with a whole life ahead of you, then you should keep track of Casey and his friends. In my mind, they are a few years ahead of the church in general. Well worth watching and learning from these people.Casey, Sanchez Fair and Stephen Knopp lead Multiply Church in Charlotte, NC. You can catch up with them via their website at multiplychurch.com.

Seven Steps to Adopting a Church Multiplication Culture Without Breaking Wineskins
Season 3, Ep. 50277
Most healthy churches are in a constant state of flux as they respond to their people's needs and the ever-changing external environment. Technology, politics and certainly pandemics demand flexibility. The move from a congregation- centric culture to a church multiplication culture is a once in a lifetime shift for any congregation. It is rare, substantial and can be damaging if not handled carefully.Large-scale changes affect your most important asset, your people. Losing members is costly due to the pace of disciplemaking. Each time a member abandons you and your mission, they take relationships, abilities and even money with them. The weight of change necessitates intimate understanding and acceptance of any cultural modification as you restructure your congregation's mission.NOTE: This episode is Session 8 of Coaching with Ralph Moore: Module 1 Embedding Multiplication Deep into Your Church Culture.
