I don’t know how many of my readers are familiar with CMA Resources. If you are not aware of this dynamic ministry, then here’s your introduction!
Neil Cole is one of the founders of this ministry. He has written such books as: “Organic Church” , “Cultivating A Life For God”, and “Search and Rescue”. He developed a phenomenal organic tool for multiplicative discipleship known as the “Life Transformation Group” or “LTG”. You can read much more about that here. This simple process has been used to start well over 1000 churches all over the world and in the United States. Over the last several years, Cole, and his friends have been used mightily by God to help transform lives and plant indigenous, self-reproducing churches. Through these experiences and Scripture they have learned principles and practices that have helped guide their efforts.
Through a series of events, God used this ministry to develop the Greenhouse training events. These events have been occurring all over the United States and beyond, and several more are planned and in the works (see here!). Now, this intense weekend packed with real life stories, biblical truth, and great fellowship is coming to the Mid-South!! CrossLife Church is teaming up with individuals and other networks along with the team at CMA Resources to bring this life- and ministry-changing event closer to our home area.
WHO: The CMA Resources Team and CrossLife Church, along with you, and as many of your friends, co-workers, neighbors, and acquaintances as possible. People who would benefit from this weekend are: pastors, church leaders, seminary students, church planting coordinators, “lay people”, Sunday School teachers, small group leaders, Missions strategists, and especially anyone interested in organic church planting!
WHAT: Greenhouse Weekend Training Story 1
WHEN: TBA (We are waiting to have a commitment of at least 35-40 people before setting a date. We are nearly there!!)
WHERE: Memphis Metro Area
HOW: Through coordinated efforts from people just like you!
WHY: To bring glory to the King through the transformation of all peoples – disciples, leaders, neighborhoods, and nations.
Q: How do I find out more information?
Q: What do I need to do?
A: First, contact us! We’d love to know you are interested. Second, begin praying through Luke 10:2b, “So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.” (NLT) This is the most important aspect of the entire process. We must be people of prayer! We want to spread this prayer like a virus throughout the Memphis metro area. Our hearts are heavy with the knowledge that thousands of people within walking distance of our homes and businesses are going through life with no hope. WE NEED MORE LABORERS IN THE HARVEST!! This is where the Greenhouse starts. Right now. With you. Will you pray for your community? Your city? Your neighborhood? Your office? Your street? Your state? Your sphere of influence?
I have set my cell phone alarm to alert me everyday at 2:01pm. Why 2:01pm? It reminds me of 201 Poplar Ave in Memphis. This is the police station. If you live in the Memphis area, you probably hear this address daily if you watch the news. It reminds me of the greatness of the harvest in our area. Will you pray with me?
Third, you can begin asking people you know if they would be interested in attending. Remember, this conference is not just for ministry leaders, it is for everyone with a heart to join Jesus in expanding His Kingdom.
We will be getting updated information out ASAP. If you are interested in coming, please contact us, so we will know when we have enough interest to move forward. If you know of someone who might be interested, let them know. Get the word out!!
