The VISION of Strategic Impact is to partner with God the Holy Spirit in order to
give all 7 Billion people alive on earth today a clear presentation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ,
by igniting a Self-Multiplying, Church-Planting Movement among every people group on earth through the vehicle of Leadership Development and Multiplication.
To train leaders who make multiplying disciples who will launch a church planting movement among every people group in order to fulfill the Great Commission.
"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age." - Matthew 28:18-20
To multiply church planting disciples in every major city of the 12 major regions of the world.
"(Paul) took the disciples with him and had discussions daily in the lecture hall of Tyrannus. This went on for two years, so that all the Jews and Greeks who lived in the province of Asia heard the word of the Lord." - Acts 19:9-10
I. Vision Seminar (VS) - A one day seminar offered to any pastor of Christian leader in an area. This seminar introduces Strategic Impact and provides sample training in our three areas emphasis: 1. Personal Development 2. Leadership Skills 3. Church Planting Strategy II. Leadership Thrust (LT) - A week-long intensive training for ~50 invited pastors and leaders committed to fulfilling the Great Commission.

III. School of Multiplying Leaders (SML) - A two-year, Biblically-based, application-driven, and relationally-oriented curriculum for ongoing training in our three areas of emphasis as well as personal accountability, and the multiplication of leaders. Relational - Each participant meets weekly with a Life Transformation Group of 3 or 4 for accountability and encouragement.
Self Taught - "f you can read it, you can lead it." Though each site has a coordinator to make sure things progress. Evangelistic - Each participant seeks to share the Gospel at least once per week. Application Oriented - Participants are not allowed to progress to the next quarter until the lessons have been implemented. Ongoing - The training is set up to take place in weekly meetings over 9 Quarters (2 years, 3 months), with 10 lessons each quarter for a total of 90 lessons. Multiplication Focused - Before progressing into the second quarter of training, each leader is to plant a new Cell Church. Before progressing into the third quarter, each must recruit at least 2 other leaders to begin training in the first quarter training material. Each subsequent leader trained has the same requirements in order to progress to the second quarter material. ExpansionDriven - Throughout the process, those leaders who catch the vision move to new cities and repeat the strategy there.
