Episode 18: Multiplication and the “Art of Reproducing Yourself” with Ken Nash
Did you know that in 1776 there were only 65 Methodist congregations in the United States? At that time, only one in 50 people identified as Methodist. By 1850 that number grew exponentially to 13,305 Methodist congregations, and one in three people identified as Methodist. Today we are nowhere near that. What changed? Rev. Dr. Ken Nash is the lead pastor of Wesleyan Church of Hamburg in Hamburg, New York, and has overseen the launching of 15 new campuses or church plants around the country, all led by laypersons from the local church. He shares practical tips on the concept of multiplication and the “art of reproducing yourself” including the simple and effective FAN method.
