Reaching Every Man, Woman, and Child in the Southeast Region
With an estimated population of 87.4 million, and 16 cities with a population of over a million people, the 10 states that comprise the Southeast region are changing rapidly. Our mission is to ensure that Every Man, Woman, and Child in the Southeast will have repeated opportunities to see, hear and respond to the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the mobilized “Church” in our region. We do this by multiplying the work of the gospel through making disciples as we gather in regional communities. The strategies may look different across the region, but we are seeing God move as we focus on training and equipping leaders, re-missioning existing churches, and planting new churches across the Southeast.
Gospel Saturation at Work Ben Rudolph
I remember the first time I heard some guys talk about “every man, woman, and child.” We were in the midst of planting our second daughter church, yet I was struggling with the scorecard that I’d inherited from my traditions and experience. Just moving our church to the next growth metric seemed like a hollow pursuit, but it was all I knew. The desire to collect more and build bigger was never satisfied, and the pressure never ceased.
When I heard the vision for Gospel Saturation, it captivated my soul and re-aligned my heart to see the harvest in my city in a fresh way. The new operating system of Gospel Saturation required me to befriend and collaborate with the Kingdom partners. When we moved to becoming a sending/mobilizing church, it not only energized and refreshed me, but also our church body, because we knew we couldn’t do it without the Holy Spirit. There’s an incredible freedom and joy in leading a church that has a new scorecard— one of Gospel Saturation. And now, giving Gospel access to every man, woman, and child in our community is our ultimate desire, and we’re praying for God to move in a mighty way to make it happen.
The next church we’re planting is being planted with a strong harvest focus. We’re beginning to measure and celebrate Gospel accessibility and proclamations. We’re doing this so that when we begin to gather on Sunday as a new church plant, it will be a church birthed as a result of discipleship and sharing Jesus with every man, woman, and child around us where we live, learn, work, and play. We’re also seeking to plant this new congregation with a strong collaborative spirit in the city. We’re not interested in advancing the name of our church, but the glory of our Lord and Savior, Jesus.
