proven city-winning, nation-shaking record.
The principle is impact through contact. With few exceptions
you have to be close to someone to touch him/her.
It is biblical, primitive Salvationst; it blows the ceiling off
growth possibilities; it is mobile; it is intimate; it
facilitates the cultivation of the use of gifts; it eases
evangelism into discipleship...
MMCCXX (vision to see new outposts in 2,000 cities in 200
countries in 20 years):
These will be primarily bivocational and incarnational
