Come Join us on a Grow! Journey

in Enlarging Your Capacity, LV Cycle

A couple of months ago, Brent (my associate and partner at Turning Point Community Church) and I were in a “Sez Who” mood and we confronted the question:

Who sez you have to have a slump in the summer?

So we began exploring ways to make summertime a growth time – corporately, spiritually, and in every other way.  The result was a spiritual growth campaign we just started called Grow!

I’d like to invite you to join us.

Feel free to include your small group, youth group, bridge club, antique car collectors group, prayer circle, missionary society, civic club, blog network, softball team, church, or small nation.

Here’s the way the Grow! campaign works.  It has four components:

Grow Book Cover1.  The Grow! Manual
This is a 13-chapter growth manual that can be used in a variety of ways.  It is PACKED with scripture-based discussion starters, spiritual foundation/formation truths, and opportunities for you to apply the principles in each chapter to “write your own story.”

You can download the manual in .pdf format by clicking here.   If you would like the manual in hard copy, spiral-bound format,  email me for details in how to get it.

2.  The Grow! Podcast
You will have the opportunity to hear a motivational message via the TPCC or iTunes Podcasting (or, if you’re in Lubbock, you can join us in person May 18-August 10).

3.  Grow! Groups
Consider starting a group – even if it’s a group of 2 – to discuss  what you’re learning, how you can pray for each other, and how you can apply the principles discussed in each chapter.

4.  Grow! Online Forums
We’re in the process of establishing some online discussion forums – primarily through blog networks.  The central location for this for starters is our church’s Nfusion Blog.  I’ll also be doing some here.  But we’re interested in establishing a participating bloggers network.  If you have a blog of your own, consider helping us, and we’ll link people to your site.

There are two types of Grow!  forum formats.  The first involves posting insights related to the current chapter.  This could include additional verses, questions, etc.  The second involves establishing discussion forums that ask people to respond to specific questions.

If you’re willing to be included in the Grow! network – even if it’s just occasionally – please reply to this post below or contact me via email.

A very dear friend who lived thousands of miles from me, who by God’s grace I helped influence to become a follower of Christ, wrote me afterward and said these amazing words: 

“Let’s pray together and grow together, even though we’re mere earthly miles apart.”

I issue to you the same invitation.
