How It Works

The Journey is a 10 month Feb-Nov process that intends to increase spiritual vitality in the local church.

January is the “ramp up” month leading into The Journey that involves 4 areas:
Prayer: Line up your prayer teams, prayer warriors, & the prayer chain. Make sure the Journey is covered in prayer –- it is foundational.
Prepare: Prepare for February and March –What creative/sensory things can we do to visualize Prayer and Bible reading (with each passing month be looking ahead for the next two months)
Promote: Select portion of the Journey’s promo videos from the Journeyof10x10 website to use on Sunday mornings. If you don’t have A/V available have the key layperson watch the video and verbally promote the Journey.
• Preach: Preach the “Why” of taking the Journey-Why is it important to increase spiritual vitality in our church?

Below is how the Journey of 10×10 will work. The 10 disciplines done 10 times will be practiced once per month. So the person making this journey in February will:
• Pray 10 minutes per day
• Read 10 minutes per day or read Psalms @ 5 chapters per day
• Connect 1 time in Christian conversation (i.e. attend a Bible Study, small group, Sunday school class, support group etc.)
• Share 1 meal
• Tell their faith story 1 time
• Invite 1 person to church
• Engage in 1 form of Mission/Outreach
• Fast 1 time
• Increase their giving by 10% for this month (and then maintain that level for the remaining months)
• Perform 1 Random Act of Kindness

The grid is repeated for the rest of the Journey of 10×10
