What is VISION 7600? A Kingdom Opportunity
Our vision is that God would grant us 7,600 new churches!
As we examined our resources and started to formulate a plan for all regions over the next 12 months, we realize we have the capacity to plant 6,200 churches. That is the PLAN, but our VISION is for 7,600! The additional 1,400 churches will encompass 25,000 new disciples. This number isn’t random because God has provided this before and we believe that with prayer, strong leadership, and support it will happen again.
This goal is not just wishful thinking. Below are some charts of the results over the past 11 years that prove it can be done.
Regional Church Multiplication
Combined Disciple Growth
And here is the amazing thing: it doesn’t take much to make a big difference. These 1,400 churches encompass 25,000 new disciples. Over the lass 11 years the average cost for each new reproducing disciple has only been $20. Our campaign goal is $500,000 ($20 x 25,000 disciples). By God’s grace, the first $200,000 has already come in.
VISION 7600 UPDATE
God continues to show us His wonders in the midst of a chaotic world. Here is just a taste of what we have seen during the first 6 months:
- We reached 50.1% of our 7,600 church goal with 3,808 churches.
- These churches encompass 83,062 new followers of Jesus.
- Nearly 1 in 4 (24%) of these new Christ followers are from Muslim backgrounds
Can you believe that halfway into our year, God, in His faithfulness, produced half of the churches we have prayed for and then gave us an 8 church bonus!
Finishing Strong & Continuing Momentum
Finishing strong this year sets the stage for even greater things next year. We are only 30% away from our goal! We know that as God provides the resources, the momentum on the ground will continue. We now believe that we may even exceed our goal and see more than the 7,600 churches we asked God for. Will you prayerfully consider helping us meet or exceed the vision that God has given us?
