Jesus is the Son of the living God

In a world that needs Jesus more than ever, he is building his Church.


God is gathering a great multitude that no one can count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, to stand before the throne and worship before the Lamb. This is happening today, globally. Our response to his initiative is to simply do our part, partnering with him and uniting with his Church in reaching the lost.

This lostness is very real. Whether in remote areas of the world or in secular, post-modern western countries, people are increasingly isolated, confused, lonely and afraid. How can they move from a place of barrenness to being a disciple of Jesus? The establishment of a local church presence is the answer to a world in desperate need of the Saviour. The planting of new congregations, while challenging, has proven to be an extremely fruitful approach to making disciples. That’s why Multiply facilitates church planting locally, nationally, and globally. As a cross-denominational organization, we aim to inspire, equip, and encourage the Church in the multiplication of healthy disciples and churches; together, that the world may know Jesus.

A vigorous and continuous approach to church planting is the only way to guarantee an increase in the number of believers and is one of the best ways to renew the whole body of Christ.”
— Dr. Tim Keller
God has both expanded our vision and increased our capacity to partner with him in this goal, inspiring the launch of a strategic campaign to increase our effectiveness.

The Lord of the harvest has given us an invitation: to plant 500 churches together in the next two years so that 50,000 more people would have the opportunity to know Jesus.

The Lord of the harvest has given us an invitation: to plant 500 churches together in the next two years so that 50,000 more people would have the opportunity to know Jesus.



He has led us to focus on the following three areas:

1.  growing healthy disciples who make disciples


Double our capacity to send short-term participants on discipleship programs.

2.  calling and equipping church-planting leaders


As the rate of global church planting increases from one church every third day to one every day, we are eager to train and support these new leaders.

3.  growing local and global partnerships


We foresee a doubling of the number of church-planting organizations that we will walk alongside to reach their nations.

your partnership makes a difference


Last year, 132 churches were planted (a new church every three days).

Last year, more than 3,000 people were baptized in new church plants.


We believe that, as the body of Christ comes together, thousands of churches will be planted and millions of people will encounter Jesus.

church planting in 65 nations!


The kingdom of God is expanding as Jesus works through passionate multipliers, worldwide. We have had the privilege of participating with God in his mission, with a network that has grown from 26 nations in 2016 to 65 in 2018.

view stories of transformation from Randy Friesen, President of Multiply

I love the Easter season. For me, one of the best ways to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord is to share testimonies of lives transformed by Jesus.

I recently heard about a man named Joe who walked into a church service in West Kelowna, British Columbia. No one there knew that he was addicted to methadone and desperate for freedom. Joe slipped into the back of the church and found a seat in front of a woman who was loudly declaring her love for Jesus. The sermon spoke directly to his heart and he began to surrender his life to Jesus. Then the woman behind him reached out to him and started praying. Later, Joe said, “When she was praying for me, everything went silent. My whole world went blank.”

Moved by God’s Spirit, the woman simply began to pray over him in tongues. She had no idea what was happening in his heart. But as she prayed in another language, Joe heard her words in English. He heard God’s promise of healing and release from bondage. He was overwhelmed with a sense of peace and joy as the words formed in his mind, “I’m free.”

His life was changed forever that morning. Joe was not only instantly delivered from his addiction but his heart was transformed by the love of Jesus. In fact, Joe was so impacted by that encounter that he immediately got on the phone and called two of his friends who were also meth addicts. He prayed over them to receive the healing that Jesus alone could bring. Today, both of them are also walking a new healing journey with Jesus.

This Easter, Joe celebrated the resurrection of Jesus with his church family in West Kelowna, where he will soon be baptized.

The resurrection life of Jesus is at work in our world today, and he’s using people like us to proclaim freedom for the captives and recovery of sight for the blind! I love how that woman responded to the Spirit’s prompting that morning and engaged the stranger in front of her? Who is God asking you to pray for today?

Another inspiring story comes from Malawi, where I recently met with two key leaders of a dynamic church-planting movement. Ten years ago, a man named Safari planted a church in a refugee camp. Today, there are more than thirty-six churches in that network with more than 11,000 newly baptized believers.

Safari came to Malawi as a refugee from Congo after fleeing the civil war where he witnessed horrific massacres, including the brutal murder of his own parents. Yet, in the refugee camp, Safari saw an opportunity for the Gospel. Two years later, another man arrived into the camp from Congo – it was the man who had killed his parents. Instead of taking revenge, Safari reached out to Gilbert with the love of Jesus, forgiving him for what he had done and inviting him into his home to live with his family. It was an act of extravagant love.

Before long, Gilbert was transformed by God’s love and surrendered his heart to Jesus. Today, these two men work closely together in a growing church planting movement that is bringing forgiveness, reconciliation and hope to many! The Church in Malawi is reminding us that the Gospel is still the power of God unto salvation.

Will you join me in supporting young leaders like Safari and Gilbert by investing in Multiply’s ministry of church planting around the world? We have an opportunity today to participate in something very special and beautiful. Whether in North American churches where God is setting free meth addicts by the resurrection power of Jesus, or in African churches where the Gospel of peace is bringing reconciliation between enemies, God is transforming lives and he’s inviting us to participate with him.

Please join us and give generously that the world may know the transforming power of Jesus.

Your fellow multiplier,

Randy Friesen
President

God is doing something new

God is doing something new in the world today. We are seeing a movement of leaders, churches and organizations that want to join with the prayer of Jesus that speaks of unity unto great harvest: "...that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me” (John 17:23, ESV). Many around the world are hearing this invitation by the Spirit and are responding with new thoughts about how to collaborate in prayer, discipleship, and church planting, all for the purpose of seeing people and cultures transformed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We are making shifts

Multiply has been looking for ways to align with this new movement of God by collaborating strategically with national leaders around the world who have a vision for planting churches. In North America, we began to serve and partner across denominations by sharing strategies and resourcing those called into church planting. Around the globe, we also positioned our workers to support and strengthen local church-planting leaders. As we made these shifts, we began to see the potential for widespread multiplication.

We are building to expand

We are committed to being Gospel-centered, Spirit-led and mission-focused. Jesus is the hero of this story. We will continue to respond to his call to unity and collaboration, and we will strive for new levels of partnership locally, nationally and globally. Our staff, our organizational structure and our systems are being built to expand their capacity to inspire, equip and encourage those who are church planting around the world.

Growth of Church Plants Per Year


2015 Vision Embraced the call to be fruitful and multiply through church planting together across denominations.
2016 Pilot Experimented globally with how to form healthy partnerships with national church-planting partners.
2017 Expansion Began to see how, as we invested in national partners, our church planting was multiplying.
2018 Alignment Grew our foundation and structure to support this increased activity, including a $2M budget increase.
2019 Multiplication As we continue to develop our national partners locally and globally, we anticipate an even greater increase in new churches planted this year and beyond.

how we facilitate church-planting

A

ASSESSING – Coming alongside potential church planters and, in collaboration with their sending church and denominational partner, helping them discern their calling and capacity for church planting.

C

COACHING – Offering Gospel coaching to church planters so that they receive care and input into the personal, spiritual, relational and missional aspects of their lives.

T

TRAINING – Providing ongoing Bible training and mobilization events, such as Multiply Conferences, to equip, inspire and encourage church planters. Where feasible, arranging apprenticeships for prospective church planters.

S

SUPPORTING – Ensuring that every new church has a good financial base and solid financial systems. Where possible, providing a temporary external leadership team to give oversight, accountability and support.

organizational experience

Multiply serves cross-denominationally to make disciples by facilitating church-planting locally, nationally and globally. We can’t multiply on our own. Fruitfulness comes when we work together. 

Multiply has a rich mission history within the larger story of the Mennonite Brethren (MB) Church, birthed from a fresh move of the Holy Spirit among Mennonites in Southern Russia in 1860. Persecution scattered them internationally and they have been planting new churches wherever they go ever since.

In North America, these churches united in their passion for global outreach and formed MB Mission. Much later, the C2C Network was formed to resource church planting in North America. As new missional strategies emerged that focused more on the value of partnering with national leaders and working cross-denominationally, the two organizations realized that they shared a common vision. Both had a growing understanding that God was on a mission and that his missionary was the Church and that global mission was increasingly “from everywhere to everywhere.”

A merger was affirmed in 2017 under the name of Multiply.

What do we mean by “together”?

Our understanding of togetherness is rooted in the prayer of Jesus, “that they may be one” (John 17). Jesus has inspired our commitment to do everything in team, recognizing the varied contributions of individuals and churches that serve, pray and/or give. But togetherness also goes beyond team and includes our growing network of national church-planting movements and partner organizations that are eagerly sharing resources and working together that the world may know Jesus.

That The World May Know campaign goals


God is clearly doing a new thing in our day, and what a privilege it is to work together in his harvest fields. God's invitation to plant 500 more churches and the unprecedented fruitfulness that we are already experiencing has led us to set the following goals for the next two years:
  1. Recruit 2000 dedicated partners to pray with us through the multiply house of prayer.
  2. Send out 2000 more people to serve with church-planting teams locally and globally.
  3. Raise the $4.25 million needed to support the work of multiplying disciples and planting 500 new churches. Our launch phase goal is $1.4 million by May 31, 2019.


The gift chart is meant to show how our phase one goal could potentially be funded. The actual ways in which partners like you give is a matter between you and the Lord. Please consider how you could be involved in this phase. Our prayer is that as you give of what God has placed in your hands, it will be multiplied by Jesus!
