The Southwestern part of the United States, which includes the six states of the Western Region (including California, Nevada, Colorado, Arizona, Utah, and New Mexico) is one of the fastest growing areas in the country. Current census figures tell us that 50 million people live in this six state area.God has called together a tribe called the Missionary Church along with many other evangelical tribes to prepare people for Heaven. We need to do our part with the help of the Holy Spirit to the best of our ability. Given that 50 million people reside in our geographic region what percentage of those people should we be responsible for and claim for Christ?
Think about these numbers – 1% of 50 million is 500,000. 20% of 500,000 is 100,000; 10% of 500,000 is 50,000 – could we claim 50,000 people for Christ in the next 10 years in our region? I believe we can! How can it be done?
A COMMITMENT TO GOD’S WORD
We are called to fulfill the great commission and to go and make disciples. Matt 28:18-20, Acts 1:8 Additionally, Exodus 18:21-26 tells us about the principle of expanding the leadership base so that more may be accomplished for the Kingdom. I call this the JETHRO PRINCIPLE. Ex 18:24 says “Moses listened to his Father-in-Law (Jethro) and did everything he said. I believe this principle is valid for us today and should be implemented.
A COMMITMENT TO OUR VISION VALUES, PRIORITIES AND MISSION
A COMMITMENT TO REACH THE LOST
The Western Region is composed of the 6 Southwestern states and current census tells us that 50 million people live in this 6 state area.
A COMMITMENT TO LEADERSHIP MULTIPLICATION
Identified Mission District / Movement Leaders will be trained, mentored and deployed.
A COMMITMENT TO THE LOCAL CHURCH
The local church is God’s chosen instrument for evangelism and disciple-making. The region with multiple districts/movements, will exist to support, encourage and equip the local church and its leaders.
MISSION DISTRICT SPECIFICS:
The Western Region office serves the geographic boundaries of the six state western Region geographic areas, as well as any new Mission Districts that would develop. It would continue to provide all the administrative needs of the region. Included would be property group insurance, health insurance, networking, coordination, cooperation, collaboration, mentoring, coaching, ministerial credentialing, etc. It will provide the assessment system for church planting, help with funding; and will help facilitate Mission Districts to reach their Kingdom potential.
Within the six-state region several Mission Districts will be developed within California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona. (Note: MD’s may include churches outside the 6 state Regional boundaries.) As growth takes place districts would be formed within those geographical boundaries. A District would be so designated when 15 churches were birthed and organized or adopted in the geographic area (per the Missionary Church Constitution). Districts would have multiplication as part of their DNA, thus continuing the multiplication process. Prior to that each district with less than 15 churches would be designated as a Mission District and any district that falls below 15 churches would be designated a Mission District.Each Mission District would have its own District Leader. This person may be a pastor or district employee or church planter. Each MD would be responsible for its own Vision, the planting and adopting of churches and charged specifically with the mission of developing healthy new churches.
