Commentary by Dr. Whitesel: “Todd Wilson gets it right: church multiplication means multiplying cultures (i.e a multiplication culture) rather then just trying to only expand one culture (an addition culture).

SPARK: IGNITING A CULTURE OF MULTIPLICATION
by Todd Wilson
In this FREE resource, Exponential Director Todd Wilson presses into Exponential’s 2015 theme, “SPARK: Igniting a Culture of Multiplication,” to give church leaders a vision for reproducing churches and the tools needed to see that vision come to fruition…
He offers an exploration of what Scripture says about God’s command to multiply and out of that scriptural study comes fresh insight as he contends that the U.S. church needs both addition (what he calls the micro strategy of adding disciples one on one, and life on life) and multiplication (the macro strategy of reproducing churches). He writes: “We must purpose to continually ask ourselves, ‘How do we help everyone in our church reach their ‘next one’? while simultaneously asking, ‘How do we release and send people to reach the next 100,000?’”
