The G3 Map: Discover Gods Map for Your Church
The G3 Map: Discover Gods Map for Your Church
A supplemental eBook for Missional Moves (Exponential Signature Series, Zondervan)
An Essential Tool for Every Disciple
The G3 Map is a tool every church leader committed to making disciples needs to have not only in their hands, but also in their heart and mind. As local church, we’ll never find our way to mission without the G3 Map.
If a local church wants to be on mission with God, it must expand beyond its natural tendency to fixate on reaching its own tribe to the God-birthed and Spirit-fueled desires to see every tribe included in the Kingdom. G3 is Gods map to the New World. Without a clear view of this macro map that includes all peoples and every tribe, we end up fixated with the micro map of my people and my tribe, not truly understanding where our lives and our churches fit within the larger picture.
Get ready for an epic journey through the entire story of the Bible through the G3 Map. This quest promises to be just as exhilarating and challenging. You’ll need to strap on your seat belt, safety helmet and hiking boots.
More Than Basic Instructions
Rather than simply viewing the Bible as Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth or a series of stories with a moral attached, we invite you into the sweeping Meta narrative of the Scripture as the ultimate way of understanding and living the Bible.
The story of God’s Global Glory, (G3) the Story of Stories, helps us frame the individual stories within the larger map. More than that, it helps us frame the very story of our lives. We find that we are being invited out of our seats and into the Story.
We’ll never make disciples without turning on the G3 Map in the heart and mind of every follower of Jesus. If you’re ready to march off your little map into the unexplored territory of God’s Global Glory, then pack up your gear and let’s go.
The G3 Map is a free supplemental eBook for Missional Moves (Exponential Signature Series, Zondervan), but can be read on its own. Missional Moves describes 15 tectonic shifts that unleash missional energy and have the power within them to transform churches, communities and the world. These shifts are explored through the compelling story of Granger Community Church, one of America’s best-known attractional churches who is on a 10-year journey toward apostolic movement.
Rob Wegner serves as a teaching pastor at Granger Community Church, calling the people of God to get out of their seat and into the Story. Under his leadership, Granger has seen thousands move out on mission, culminating in redemptive movements locally and globally, that include expressions like Monroe Circle Community Center, a hub for neighborhood renewal in the inner city; and a movement of more than 1,000 reproducing churches in India that includes more than 140,000 people. Rob is also the lead catalyst for EnterMission, which sparks holistic transformation of communities by cultivating grassroots movements, equipping and networking churches for glocal impact, and forging transformational partnerships across the domains of society. Currently, Rob is working alongside Alan Hirsch in an innovative coaching program called Future Travelers helping megachurches become missional movements. His first book, Share the Well, which he co-wrote with his wife, Michelle, is an eyes wide open experience through visually stunning photos and captivating stories of the holistic church planting movement they helped birth in India. His second book, Missional Moves, which releases in fall 2012, is the next book in Zondervan’s Exponential Signature Series. Rob and Michelle have three girls, Madeline, Whitney and Belle, who are quickly becoming Kingdom revolutionaries. You can find him blogging at robwegner.org or on Twitter @robwegner.
