The Tipping Point in Church Planting (feat. Todd Wilson)

We have the privilege of speaking with Todd Wilson in this episode. He’s the former founder of Exponential and the current directional team leader of the Renew Movement. Todd and Matt Dabbs dive into the challenges and statistics surrounding disciple making in U.S. churches. Our current plan to use church programs for church growth has created a barriers to a real disciple-making culture. Wilson argues for a shift towards relational disciple making as a primary way of growth, especially after the impact COVID has had on church trends. We need a new paradigm. You know it and I know it. We need one that embraces relational disciple making to ensure the future of church growth.
