Moving from the bottom-up, the uniquess of this model is in the emphasis on team-based, incarnational ministry vs. institution-based, attractional programs. Team Equipping & Sacramental Gatherings are the only gatherings that would not take place as an immersed, relational reality in the host, unbelieving culture.
As simple as I've tried to make the method, I still feel a certain sense of anxiety at its complexity & am wary of the human tendency to over-institutionalize. I believe this is a tension we will perpetually wrestle into a moment-by-moment surrender to God's immediate leading in the ever-changing now.
On the other more organic side of the model, there is a strongly biotic pattern (which is affirming when articulating anything having to do with growth). It is the cyclical pattern of 1) Gather, 2) Grow, 3) Go. While it might sound similar to the "Come, Grow, Go" paradigm some of us grew up with, it is radically different! Come, Grow, Go anchors & continually draws people back to a centralized institutional hub. Gather, Grow, Go produces a growth orientation that is ever-outwardly-mobile (as so instructed in Jesus' Mt 28 commission) while rooting the pattern in a communal starting point.
