From Franchise to Local Dive:
Multiplying Your Church By Discovering Your Contextual Flavor
Many local churches are stuck in a rut, have reached a plateau, or — worst of all — are declining. The temptation is to serve up the same exact ministry models that worked in another time and space, but ultimately feel safe to existing churches. Like ordering from a menu at the franchise chain restaurant and expecting the meal to be palatable in the local context, many churches try and start some- thing new by serving up the same old thing, failing to discover what their local community is actually hungry for.
From Franchise to Local Dive explores what it means to multiply ministry by cooking with local flavor. Whether you want to start a new service or a brand-new campus, this workshop will help you discover how to make a ministry recipe that will keep people coming back for more.
The local church is not called to settle for the fast food chain mentality that cranks out disciples with slick slogans, flashy trends, and regurgitated practices. Rather the call is to be a local, homegrown, farm-fresh, organic ministry that uses authentic ingredients to win people for Jesus. In From Franchise to Local Dive, Jason Moore and Rosario Picardo offer an important resource designed to help congregations multiply their ministries by learning how to perfect their winning recipes.
