Divide and Conquer 153
Mission Divide & Conquer 153 (DC153)
Each DC153 household (HH) is strongly encouraged to conduct a relatively informal CLP at a member’s home or small room in the church, with the goal of dedicating new members greater than or equal to the number of the service team members (NOTE: “Mega” CLPs are presently done by the Unit with the involvement of 3 or more HHs and usually dedicating a small number of graduates, and the “mega” ends up to be the service team). Appropriate training sessions (CLP, Speakers etc.) will be arranged to be given by the Area Leaders (Online training will be developed and Zoom training sessions may be given). The HH Head will lead the CLP, and HH members will facilitate discussions (also the HH Leaders after the CLP), possibly do some talks, although the “major” talks will be assigned to HH leaders and up (Online videos of talks given by various speakers will be produced and can be used should there be a shortage of speakers). Attached are detailed Implementing Guidelines for consistent operations, and a Timetable. These will foster consistency and timeliness in the conduct of the CLPs. HHs will start at the same time, starting with HH enlistments (NOTE: we will not impose, we will only inspire as Free Will shall be honored), followed by a Boot Camp (training and empowerment), then D-day (actual CLP) capped with a GRAND Dedication (by Unit or Chapter) for all HHs who have enlisted.
In John 21:5-11
Jesus said to them, “Children, have you caught anything to eat?” They answered him, “No.” So he said to them, “Cast the net over the right side of the boat and you will find something.” So they cast it, and were not able to pull it in because of the number of fish. Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish you just caught.” So Simon Peter went over and dragged the net ashore full of one hundred fifty-three large fish.
This initiative is not about numbers but about souls. The 100% goal is for the whole CFC USA (100%) to say YES and to give 100% effort that God deserves. As long as we give our all, then the harvest will be up to God, and in John 21, Jesus provided 153 large fish resulting from the faithfulness and obedience of the disciples.
