CTM is a network of church planters and missional leaders who have committed themselves to mastering disciple making through missional communities that also results in a large group of people who gather for public worship, rather than to mastering large group public worship as a way to get to disciple making through missional communities.
The “Great Commission” was not to plant churches, but to make disciples. Jesus is not opposed to churches being planted. Rather, Jesus knew that you get churches as disciples are made. The only Biblical way to plant churches is to make disciples.
At City Transformation Ministries, we don’t believe that we have all the answers for how to be God’s called out people for the 21st Century. Far from it, we believe that there is still much to learn about how to reach this world with the Gospel message of Jesus Christ. But we also believe that Jesus was serious about His disciples making more disciples. We can see how the early church grew when His disciples were on that mission together. We can also see the present-day church on the retreat because we have mostly given up on this call to discipleship. We want to be members, attenders, officers, and by-standers in our churches…………what if Jesus were calling us to something far greater? What if Jesus meant for us to actually BE the ones who would speak on His behalf today?
