Why don’t more churches multiply (reproduce)? According to Ed Stetzer and Warren Bird in their book Viral Churches:
“The quick answers are: their leaders haven't thought about it, they don’t know how to do it, and it seems difficult. Ultimately it’s because they don’t understand the importance of doing so.” (41)
I like their answer, but here’s how I would have put it…
Norway. Philippines. Australia. Cambodia. Taken as a collective, these countries aren’t typically thought of as similar. Humanity has a history of dividing the world into neat, easy categories based on geographic, ethnic, religious, linguistic, and philosophical lines.
