We start our 40 days of purpose campaign on 27th Feb 2005. Don’t forget to get your book and manual.
Imagine what could happen in your church if every one of your members began to live out God’s five purpose on a daily basis!
If your church baptized 671 new believers, added 1,200 new members, and increased your average attendance by 2,000 in just 40 days, would you call that a revival?
If, during those same 40 days, 2,200 previously uninvolved people volunteered to serve in a ministry of your church, and another 3,700 committed to go on missions somewhere in the world next year, what would you call that? An awakening?
What term would you use if your members became so burdened for their neighbors that they started 2,400 Home Bible Study groups and convinced nearly 25,000 of their friends, neighbors, and co-workers to attend for six weeks? A miracle?
Whatever you call it, this actually happened at Saddleback Church in the Fall of 2002 during an incredible spiritual growth emphasis called 40 Days of Purpose.
But it just didn’t happen at Saddleback! Over 18,000 churches from all 50 states and 19 countries have now participated in 40 Days of Purpose. Many of these churches have reported that it was the most transforming event in their congregation’s history. Hundreds of pastors have written or called saying, “Our church will never be the same” and “This is the greatest thing that has ever happened in our church.” One pastor wrote, “I’ve seen more growth in our members and our church in 40 days than in the previous 13 years.”
Through 40 Days of Purpose, thousands of people have come to Christ, been baptized, welcomed into membership, connected to a small group or Sunday School class for fellowship, taught the meaning of real worship, equipped for personal ministry, and commissioned to fulfill their mission in the world.
We hope and pray that your church won’t miss out on this movement of God. We invite you to join us. We’re waiting to partner with you on the journey of a lifetime!
