Market Seventy: Reclaiming the marketplace

FastStart: Leading Transformation

Why You Need It

You are being used in the marketplace to transform your organization, your industry, your neighborhood and beyond. You are experiencing the fruit of transformation in substantial, measurable ways. God has given you much success and, "From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked." ( Luke 12:48) You are now expected to move into leading transformation beyond your own sphere of influence and joining in the Body of Christ moving across the world. Jesus said, "Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters." (Luke 11:23)

What It Is

Leading Transformation is the final step in your journey – and it is the first step in your journey. It challenges you to step into the perfecting – finishing – work of Christ, Himself. It calls you into living the birth, death, resurrection and ministry of Christ. It is a communal walk with the Body of Christ. It is a lifestyle, not an activity. It arises naturally out of the systems change work you have been involved in since the Spirit-Led strategic planning module.

What You Have to Know

Right now, all around the world, God is involved in transformation. Substantial, measurable results are being experienced at all levels of marketplace, government, education, entertainment and the arts, family, and militaries. The journey you have been on has not been a solo journey. Intercessors from around the globe have been praying for you, standing in the gap for you, seeking revelation for you. The work you have been doing in your sphere of influence is touching and encouraging people you don't even know exist.

There are tens of thousands of Christians working for transformation in all the areas mentioned above. God's call on our lives is to join them – to step into leadership roles as marketplace ministers. He calls us to use our developing knowledge, experience and passion to lead transformation. Each of us in a different capacity is marching shoulder to shoulder with Christ's co-laborers all over the world.

What You Have to Do

There are three major areas in which God is calling you to take a leadership role.
1. Your Personal Transformation: Keeping short accounts, proactively be re-submitting yourself daily to His plans and purposes.
2. Transformation in the Church: Take personal and corporate responsibility in building the Body of Christ through supporting and leading transformation churches.
3. City and Nation Transformation: Lend your specific skills, knowledge and experience to the world-wide transformational movement.
