Growing from 4 to 400 Generations
We've heard stories about disciple-making movements that are sweeping the globe, transforming the way people are coming to Christ in places like Asia, western Africa, and South America. We've learned specific principles and strategies to encourage such movements. If only we had a book that combined empirical research with established missiological practice. Now we do.
Impacting Eternity builds on multi-dimensional research performed over a period of years. Its findings have been refined in practice within three different movements that the author helped to facilitate. Robert Reach gives seven concrete, root principles that bear kingdom fruit. This is not merely information that might work; it has proven effective in the trenches of movement life resulting in miraculous growth. Reach has found that his 5-5-5 methodology is very effective, but instead of promoting it, he helps readers think about the underlying leadership dynamics that spark and sustain a movement.
We cannot see the Spirit, but we see his work in our lives. In the same way, the visible leaves and fruit of a movement have many hidden roots. And so, we must pay attention. This book can help you learn to recognize and follow God's Spirit as he accomplishes his purposes among the nations.
About the Author
Robert M. Reach began foreign mission work in 1965, spending two summers training under Dr. Donald McGavran. Robert then completed college, earned a master's degree, got married, and started a family. Robert traveled to sixty-five countries ministering to national pastors and church leaders, some more than fifty times. Later in life, he began researching people movements and developed a pilot project in SE Asia. Now with the movements having more than 1.5 million disciples of Jesus, Robert has learned the fundamentals of how to initiate, facilitate, develop, and multiply a self-funding, self-propagating, and self-governing mass people movement of disciples of Jesus Christ.
