Overview

100 Years From Now: Sustaining a Movement for Generations by Steve Murrell

Over the next century, the world will see changes we can't even imagine. Advances in technology, shifts in demographics, and developments in global politics will all play a part in dramatically transforming our future. But this book is not about predicting the future-it's about understanding the principles that will shape it. Scores of youth-oriented church-planting movements have come and gone quickly over the last century, many of them with the potential to literally change the world for Christ. Unfortunately, most didn't survive because they were unable to maintain what made them so effective in their first twenty years. The same mission, values, and culture that inspire movements must also sustain them. Simple to say. Not so easy to do. 100 Years From Now explores the importance of understanding mission, values, and culture in order to grow and sustain a movement for generations. 100 Years from Now invites a truly global conversation on what the Spirit is saying to the churches about God's mission for every nation. -Dr. Timoteo Gener, President and Professor of Theology, Asian Theological Seminary
