What is the Intentional Church Multiplication Process
Intentional Church Multiplication Process (ICMP) is discipleship at it's core. As we intentionally grow in our personal relationship with Jesus Christ and commit to disciple one another; transformational growth happens.
- Each pastor is assigned a personal coach. These trained coaches will help the pastor and staff over a 12 month period.
- Pastor commitment - The pastor must make a commitment to grow personally, to lead the congregation to health, discipleship and intentional multiplication at every level.
- Church commitment - The church must make a commitment to participate in the process and embrace health improving change.
The pastor and key church leaders will participate in monthly training sessions. These eight hour sessions will focus on the six pillars of the church and twelve biblical principles for transformational growth.
The church consultant is trained by the Society for Church Consultants. By utilizing analysis tools, the consultant will use the results to assist and advise the pastor and key leadership in implementing the vision, mission and strategy of the church.
