Dear ,
People often ask us,"what is Church Multiplication Associates (CMA)?"  We describe ourselves as a growing and emerging family of churches intent on being alive with Jesus, mutually encouraging and spontaneously reproductive. We are not a denomination but in fact have churches that represent many denominations.  
CMA is not a network of churches either, but a voluntary association of several expanding networks. We are bound together by three things: our commitment to live out the Scriptures in today's world, our mutual love for one another and our common mission on this planet. We understand the church to be a living entity and as such she is to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth.
Part of the reason we are doing our conference is to have a time to gather our folks from all over the world and emphasize the three things that hold us together:the Scriptures, our love for one another and moving forward in our mission.  We hope you will make every effort to come because we all need each other!  Check out the details below or our the conference website.  See You There!
Press on,
Mike Jentes

Organic Church-- Growing Faith Where Life Happens by Neil Cole
Many people today see themselves as more spiritual than religious, and are looking for deeper, more authentic relationships with other people and with God.
Church leaders and church planters must go where these people already are-in coffeehouses, bars, pubs, and other "third places"-if they want to connect with and eventually interest these seekers in Jesus. Organic Church demystifies this new expression of church and teaches the practical aspects of bringing faith to the places where life happens

Crucified Giving Changes the World
By Wolfgang Simson translated by Steve Bufton

Two main themes are currently determining the future of Christianity: firstly, the rediscovery of the original nature and organic structure of Church, and secondly, the rediscovery of New Testament financial principles. When much of Christianity follows money instead of the Lord, what is the effect on the original aim and mission of the Church? Could it be that its operating system - its financial principles - is damaged?

"Everything you've heard about work and money in the church is wrong!" That was the background of a 2005 book by Dr. Thomas Giudici and Wolfgang Simson, examining materialistic 'Mammon-addiction' in both individuals' lives and the Church (in German, "Der Preis des Geldes", Constructive criticism isn't enough, though, so the book also suggests alternative financial models. One of those models is "apostolic finances", principles for work and finances which support the mission of the Church, not its self-centered or even pleasure-seeking status quo.
