I read somewhere that 50% of us make some kind of New Year resolution. Of that 50% only 11% actually stick to the resolution. So on the one hand there is this well intended effort at bettering ones self that slams right in the face of reality. Our options? Well we can pretend that we are really going to pull it off against all odds or we can cynically renounce all such resolution making all together and hence never becoming that “better person” we want to be.
Joe Carter actually comes up with a third option in Don’t Just Make A Resolution – Make A Habit.

Church Planting Movements (CPM) in America:
with Jim Graham
Jim Graham serves with the International Mission Board (IMB) in Taiwan. He is currently stateside and serving at CBU. Jim was personally mentored for 6 months by Ying Kai, another IMB fieldworker who followed the instructions Jesus gave his disciples in Luke 10, and saw the Lord bring about CPM in China. In nine years and nine months that movement produced 1,738,143 Baptisms and 158,993 New Small Churches. The Lord only knows the impact that this work is having still today.
We will look at CPM in America and how asking the question, “What Did Jesus Do?” instead of “What Would Jesus Do?” is bearing fruit for the Kingdom of God in the United States.
