Episode Info:

When looking at history, it seems like church movements have a cycle of rising and falling. Steve Addison joins the show to talk about his new book called The Rise and Fall of Movements and how God works in that cycle. He speaks on how believers who value the Great Commission can keep their eyes on Jesus, His word, Spirit, and mission.

As some ministries reach a place of decline, we can remember that God is always raising up new movements. He keeps working to draw us back to Him. The important thing is for us to seek God and walk in obedience to Him.
