A church within reach of everyone
Over 7 billion people share our planet today. About 2 billion of them claim to share our faith in Jesus Christ. Can we get to the remaining 5 billion in our generation?
What would it take?
We have been sent. And we are also in the sending business. What if we can mobilize the 2 billion to reach out to the 5 billion?
What would it take to develop a systematic outreach among the 5 billion in every language, every demographic group, every business? It would take a permanent group that meets regularly, that loves Jesus, and is committed to living righteously and to tell others about him. This a church.

Most rural villages are about 1,000 people in size. Most suburban neighborhood developments are about 1,000 people. Most urban high-rise apartments are grouped into about 1,000 people. So if we put one of these missional-focused churches among every 1,000 people, we need 5 million churches among the 5 billion. We need them evenly distributed so there is a light among every cluster, so that the church of Jesus is available to every person that shares our planet.
What if we actually tracked our progress?
5 million, 1 in every…
We have set a goal of 5 million new churches, a church in every urban high-rise, every suburban neighborhood, every rural village, and every digital community.
