Cracking the Code of 21st Century Ministry 
Episode 11 — Recommit to Multiplication

Multiplication was embedded into the lifestyle of the Early Church. For the earliest believers, multiplication was as natural as breathing. The way it happened was simple and easily transferable to the 21st-century reality. Disciples made disciples. Leaders made leaders. Church made churches.
