Welcome to the Next 10 Years
Multiplying the reach of God’s love is the heart of Westwood’s bold 10-year vision called 10/10/10. It is what we are called to do as followers of Christ. Acts 1:8 says: “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” We will be multiplying disciples of Jesus Christ and multiplying church environments where disciples are made. 10/10/10 is how we are going to do it.
The First 10
Multisite churches are a way to reach new communities with the message of God’s love. A multisite has its own campus pastor, live worship music, great kids and student programs and the teaching message broadcast on giant screens. Westwood currently has two locations (Westwood Bush Lake and Westwood Chanhassen). A minimum of 10 multisites, microsites or church plants will be launched.
The Second 10 (10X10=100)
As we’re adding Westwood campuses in our region of the Twin Cities, we’ll also help start independent churches for the nearly 1,000,000 immigrants and culturally diverse communities in the Twin Cities, a significantly under-churched population.
The Third 10 (10X10X10=1000)
We’ll join in church planting work that is being done in the 41% of the world that still doesn’t have access to the Gospel by planting 1000 churches around the world. This great work is already having incredible impact through training pastors and releasing them to start “micro-churches.”
