Dynamic Churches International is a faith ministry.
To have reached every person with the gospel of Jesus Christ through the reproduction of equipped witnessing disciples….
We value each person and seek to serve him/her as Jesus would. We want to do all we can to lead them to a personal relationship with God, develop them to maturity in Christ and equip them to be leaders who are committed to serve other people to become all they can be in Christ. Leadership roles in DCI are functions, not positions of authority. (Luke 22:23-30; John 13:3-10)
We recognize the importance of helping believers understand their identification with Christ in His death, burial, resurrection and ascension. This results in them living out the new life, which depends on Christ’s power for living (Colossians 1:29) and can only be experienced by daily considering oneself to be dead to sin and through the continual surrender of one’s will to His. As disciples abide in Christ, He lives His Life in them, producing abundant life and fruitful ministry through them for the glory of God. (Colossians 3:1-4; Romans 6:10-14; Galatians 2:20; Luke 9:23; John 10:10; John 15:1-8)
We value reproducing our spiritual lives and ministry skills in people as the best way to fulfil the Great Commission. As trained witnessing disciples, disciple-makers and leaders reproduce sufficiently they will impact every family, church, community, and nation. We believe biblical life principles transfer most effectively to the learner through One-to-One ministry, and multiply best in the environment of reproducing Discovery Groups. (2 Timothy 2:2; Matthew 28:19-20)
Equipping the Church:
We value the Church of Jesus Christ in its broadest definition and various forms (Matthew 18:20) as God’s instrument for bringing people into a personal relationship with Him through faith in Jesus Christ and to maturity in Christ. Therefore, as a non-profit faith ministry, we serve Christ’s Church by providing training and resources to equip Christians to be leaders and laborers who equip others to be witnessing disciples, disciple-makers and leaders. (Ephesians 4:11, 12; 2 Timothy 2:2; Matthew 9:36, 37; Luke 14:28)
We value the multifaceted work of the Holy Spirit ministering to the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs of people through both organizations and individuals who manifest the Lord’s Kingdom on Earth. We will explore and initiate strategic partnerships where we can come along side them to fulfill our mandate. (1 Corinthians 12:5, 6, 18, 19)
We recognize that people have learning preferences and limitations determined by genetics, culture and education. We will seek to discover and evaluate the most effective means to motivate and equip the intended audience with Christ-centered strategies, methods and materials. (1 Corinthians 9:22, 23)
(Read 2 Corinthians 3:18 – 4:1) (The following quote is from Daniel Henderson – Keeping Perspective) The world will not be changed by the overabundance of our information, but by the overflow of our intimacy (with God). So the cry of my heart these days is “Less Talk – More Prayer”. Where there is less talk and more prayer there will be more joy and less worry. We will have more of His presence and less of our presentations. There will be more unity and less division – more supernatural power and less superficial striving. We will experience more divine miracles with less human manipulation and more passion for the lost with less programming for the saved.
The Great Commission
“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I will be with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28: 18-20).
The ultimate vision of the church world-wide and for your church locally will always be the fulfillment of the Great Commission. It is our mandate and our strategy. The great commission says we are to “Make Disciples”. We do that as we “go” (evangelize), “baptize” (identify with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection) and as we “teach to obey” (not just teach, but teach to obey. That means we must help people apply what we teach – that’s discipleship).
The Need to Change
If you continue doing what you are presently doing as a church, will you ever fulfil your purpose and reach your community for Christ? It is possible, but it may require some major restructuring in the way you presently minister to people. Why was the 1st century church so successful? They made disciples! They got close enough to people to be able to meet their needs effectively. Jesus, Paul and others have modeled for us how to make disciples. They discipled others in small groups and one-to-one.
The Need for a Growth Process
We are not suggesting that you add a small group and one-to-one ministry to your already busy church schedule. What you need is a system that will minister to more people, more effectively with less effort. You may need to restructure present ministries into more effective ministries that are meeting needs and making disciples.
The staff of Dynamic Churches International is committed to your success and the growth of your church. We can provide both training and resource materials to help you develop a growth strategy for your church.
Who do we train?
God has called us to serve His church by coming alongside denominations or mission organizations to help train their Pastors, Church Leaders and Church Planters. In each country our goal is to find qualified nationals (often these are pastors of churches we have served) or mission groups who are training local leaders. We are prepared to train these leaders to be Certified Trainers to serve the church.
Why are we doing what we are doing?
Today over 85% of the churches in our country are either plateaued or declining. Something is fundamentally wrong. Business as usual is not working. Pastors and church leaders lack solutions to address the confounding situations confronting them today. More of the same is not going to make a difference. The message of Jesus Christ is very relevant for the church and the world in the new millennium. We must however, chart a new course that intersects with the opportunity that lies before the church.
