This is, for us, a once in a lifetime mission--probably the biggest thing we will ever do. We are undergoing a major transformation into a different ministry. In 12 months we will have hundreds of new staff.
Our goal is to help equip churches to disciple 1,000,000 new men by 2015, and 10,000,000 men by 2020. To accomplish that goal, we need "boots on the ground" coaching and consulting with churches. Each Area Director will have a territory of 1,000 churches. The near-term mission of each Area Director will be to form relationships with 100 churches, which each disciple 30 to 40 new men by the end of 2015 (that's where the 1,000,000 comes from).
Here are the details....
As the military axiom says, "No battle plan survives first contact with the enemy." We know we'll need to make many readjustments. But as I told our major donors, "Even if this doesn't work, it's still the right thing to do."
If you would, please simply pray, as Abraham's servant prayed, that God will give us success on our mission. May His will be done.
