I had a great time working with Mark and Nicole Conner and the CityLife team for two days in Melbourne, Australia. They are definitely world class leaders with tremendous passion and gifting. We spent most of our time talking about the organizational changes needed once you get beyond 3 sites. We also spent a great deal of time talking about how they can further implement the BIG IDEA. And we ate alot!!
While it was impressive that CityLife is the second largest church in Australia with an average attendance of 5500; what was more exciting is that it is now a reproducing church! In the last three years CityLife has added two more new sites; plus planting a new church with dreams for continually reproducing. If you dig deeper you will discover that this church, like most successful reproducing churches has an infrastructure of reproducing small groups with 88% of their people in small groups. Outstanding! I look forward to partnering with CityLife in the future. It is so inspiring to see what God is doing all over the world to bring about a movement of reproducing churches.
