When you have a system that is multiplying disciples, groups, leaders or churches, it’s common to see a slowing of momentum at the 3rd or 4th generation. One solution that is often helpful is to intentionally move a stronger leader out from the center of the system to the edges so you can see stronger multiplication coming from that point.

In an electricity distribution network, you establish a central node to distribute energy. When the line gets weak, you can establish a new node to extend energy from there. In the same way, putting a stronger leader out on the fringes creates a new center of energy that can extend further.

Don’t be afraid to reorganize as you go, establishing stronger centers across your network organization. Establishing new nodes avoids a spoke-and-hubs approach that weakens further from the center.
