LCN is a network of churches with a passion to make 1,000,000 disciples by 2025.
December 2017
Can you believe it has been only two years since the relaunch of LCN? We began with a vision to make 1 million new disciples by 2025 and I wanted to give you a year-end update on how we are doing:

2015                                                   2017
4 Local Centers (NC/VA)                      25 Local Centers (East Coast/Midwest)
20 Pastors in Monthly Coaching            400 Pastors in Monthly Coaching
5 Churches Planted Nationally              99 Churches Planted Nationally
0 Disciples Nationally                          15,755 Disciples Nationally
0 Churches Planted Internationally       25,439 Churches Planted Internationally
0 Disciples Made Internationally           602,274 Disciples Made Internationally

Wow! God is doing some amazing things through our network of pastors, churches, and ministry partners. We are so excited to be serving together in this Kingdom mission to make disciples who will make disciples. And we have only just begun…

As we look toward 2018 we have a goal to start 15 new Local Centers and see thousands more disciples made. Local Centers are the core of the LCN strategy to make new disciples and disciple-makers. Our Local Centers are made up of Kingdom-minded pastors from all denominations and networks that are committed to changing the way we do church by helping move from a mindset of addition to that of multiplication.

This is where you come in…. LCN is only able to operate by the sacrificial gifts of our ministry partners, pastors, and churches. If you have been impacted by the ministry of LCN and are inspired by the vision to make disciples, we ask you to consider making a significant year-end gift to allow us to continue to make new disciples and coach more pastors. LCN is the only network in the country to offer free monthly coaching for local pastors. Our sole focus is to help pastors become better at making disciples who make disciples, and to change the paradigm of how we are doing church in America and around the world.

Please pray about giving a significant year-end gift to LCN. Your gift will have an exponential impact on starting new churches, coaching more pastors, and making new disciples all around the world.

Serving Together,

Rob Wetzel
LCN Director

Modeling Disciple-Making
Jarret Hamilton of Generation Church talks about his burden for modeling disciple-making through missional communities. Engage with your neighbors to create connections that can lead to relationships. Be the hands and feet of Jesus so that you may then share His message.

Local Center Meetings in December
For a detailed list of all upcoming events at Local Centers, visit our website. Local Centers are hubs where LCN members can be coached, networked, and resourced on how to become better disciple-making churches.
It is also the place where LCN members network to plant local churches and invite other churches to be a part of the LCN family.
