Helping You Achieve Movement: The "Why" of Digital Church Network


In 2020, We Created Digital Church Network so that One Day We Could Write This Blog Announcement

We started Digital Church Network because of a simple idea: We wanted to see the idea of Digital Church & Digital Discipleship multiply. After so many conversations with normal people with crazy, innovative, disciple-making ideas… it was obvious that something had to be done. This is the Genesis of the Digital Church Network. God told us to help others with their digital, missional ideas. Digital Churches needed a supportive organization and a healthy ecosystem. Who were we to say no to God?

It’s been well documented, but DCN’s partnership with NewThing Network was a match made in Heaven. A decentralized, missional, global organization that has been helping tens of thousands of churches globally start networks and movements? To be honest, it didn’t take long to develop the relationship. The “why’s” lined up quickly, and the “hows” almost as fast. The item that sealed the deal? The cherry on that ice cream sundae of a partnership? NewThing’s Movement System.

The Movement System, quite simply, is NewThing’s Discipleship System/Engagement Process… whatever your term is, the Movement System was created to help individuals, to help churches understand how to make a disciple. Actually, it’s not just about making a disciple… more accurately, the Movement System is in place to help multiply disciples, create multiplying churches and even (God willing) start a movement. 

What is the Movement System inside DCN?

This catalytic training provides “just-in-time” training, allowing pastors, planters, practitioners, and even normal people to learn:

1) How to Make Multiplying Disciple-Makers ->
2) That Grow into Leaders ->
3) That Plant Churches ->
4) That Multiply Churches/Network ->
5) That Multiply into Multiple Networks/Create a Movement

It’s not a seminary class. This isn’t a three-year course with Greek and Hebrew prerequisites. Instead, it’s simple materials and built-in accountability that are designed to help people understand multiplicative disciple-making and simple decentralized structures that allow for contextualization very effectively. DCN's Movement System is not only our process of making disciples but helping these disciples start movements... Simply put, a Disciple Making Movement that grows into a Church Planting Movement (DMM that leads to CPM), DCN's Movement System is designed to help ordinary people develop contextually-savvy digital and metaverse churches that grow into networks and multiply into movements. 

Having spoken to at this point 600+ people who are interested in launching a digital/metaverse church, I have yet to meet one church that would not benefit from NewThing’s Movement System, and I’m proud to say that effective this month, we are offering it in DCN. After months of preparation and planning, it’s time to go. Let’s do this thing!
