A ministry is what you can do with the help of others. A movement is what God can do when you let go of control and multiply disciples and churches. Drawing on the life and ministry of Jesus, and with reflections on past and present movements, Steve Addison provides a roadmap for leaders who want to multiply disciples and churches to the ends of the earth. Whether pioneering on the edge, riding a wave of expansion, or stuck in suffocating decline, The Rise and Fall of Movements addresses each phase in the movement lifecycle, helping leaders identify their stage and align themselves with God’s purposes.
STEVE ADDISON is a catalyst for movements that multiply disciples and churches everywhere. He is a missions leader, author, speaker, and mentor to pioneers. Steve is married to Michelle. They live in Melbourne, Australia and have four children and two grandchildren. Michelle and Steve lead MOVE (movenetwork.org), a mission agency devoted to training and deploying workers who multiply disciples and churches.
