Cell Multiplication

Rob Campbell here. When I think about defining a “cell,” these components come to my mind:  discipleship, community, telling the story of Christ to others, consistency, “others” centered, and a “set of relationships.”  You may suggest other critical components such as multiplication.  For sure, multiplication is a HUGE component of cell life. 

Joel Comiskey writes, “Cells are born to multiply. The DNA of the cell is to give birth to a daughter cell. This is so essential that it will demand the total church concentration to make this happen. In fact, it won’t happen under busy pastors who have too many things on their mind. Only through total concentration and focus will cells have the necessary resources to truly make them work.”  I concur.I trust that you have experienced the JOY of seeing a cell multiply.  It’s encouraging to see an individual receive Christ, grow in Him, and have a desire in his/her heart to lead a cell.  I trust you have experienced the pain, toil, and hardship of multiplying a cell as well.  Let’s face it—multiplying a cell can be quite difficult, and many times, heart wrenching.  For certain, cell multiplication offers an interesting spiritual and emotional dichotomy.Let’s share some ideas with each other concerning cell multiplication.  How do you multiply cells?  What has worked?  What mistakes have you made?  Maybe you have a question that you would like to submit to this community.
Eventually, I would like to add a few thoughts concerning cell multiplication that I’ve learned along the way that may prove helpful to you.  So, share your thoughts with us.  It’s not necessary to write a dissertation, right?  You are much too involved in your day for such a task.  I encourage to share a few sentences… three or four bullet points… a paragraph or two on this topic.  BLOG ON IN!!
