Movements that Change the World: Five Traits They Share

Five Traits of Movements that Change the World

Church planting is not about more people in seats but changing the world for Jesus, reshaping the world for the glory of Christ.

That’s why Steve Addison’s new book, Movements that Change the World, is worth your time. Besides endorsements by the church planting illuminati (Stetzer, Roberts, Garrison, Logan, Moore, Hirsch and Cole), it is short, well written, and intoxicatingly interesting.

Addison’s contention is that all missional movements display five foundational characteristics.

  1. White-hot faith
  2. Commitment to a cause.
  3. contagious relationships.
  4. Rapid mobilization.
  5. Adaptive methods.

Get the book. Read it and begin to pray these principles into your life so they will flow out of the ministry.
