Journey to Movement

Journey to Movement explores the New Testament church as an ongoing historical event of God’s relentless pursuit of relationships with every people group. The 12-month exploration of movement will help participants discover a biblical plan of action to multiple disciples and connect God’s story to the story of their community. Focused on the church that began in Ephesus in 53 AD, participants will uncover the remarkable legacy of spreading the gospel all throughout Asia Minor as well as the rich understanding that all peoples were being built into a dwelling place for God. The journey will trace the life of the church through its launching in Acts 19 to Paul’s epistle to the church that grounded it biblically. Then, looking at instructions to the church’s leader, 1 and 2 Timothy will provide details of a leader’s responsibilities in movements God continues to orchestrate. Finally, Jesus’s powerful letter to the church in Revelation 2 will set the vision for the ongoing work of proclaiming the gospel to all ethnic groups in order that more people will worship God. By focusing on discovery learning, the journey will have a lasting impact on participants as they uncover biblical principles through the story of the church in Ephesus and apply them in their plan to mature disciples and multiple followers of Christ in their community.
