Experience Life’s original prayer was for 10,000 people to commit their lives to Jesus in 10 years. After the Lord answered that prayer in year 8, we believed the Lord was leading us to pray for 1,000,000 people to become disciples of Jesus in the next 10 years. As a result, we knew we needed to transition from a “megachurch” model to a “multiplication” model because the way millions are coming to Christ around the world is through the multiplication of thousands of smaller churches which meet in homes, much like in the Book of Acts. Experience Life is now meeting in many homes across West Texas and around the United States.

What would cause Experience Life Church, frequently named one of the fastest growing churches in the country, to completely change directions? Why would they risk an attendance drop and a decrease in giving to pursue a vision that has seldom been attempted in the American church? The leaders of Experience Life knew this journey would be risky and calculated the costs before ever beginning. They believed that following Jesus and aiming to reach millions was worth any cost. Be careful with this book! It might inspire you to risk everything you have to follow Jesus. You’ve been warned.
The WIGTake question is: “What’s It Going to Take to Reach Everyone in the People Group?” Not what can I do or what can you do. Not what have others done before us. Not what’s possible. No. What’s it going to take? That’s the question we must ask! We have to be willing to do whatever it’s going to take! After all, that’s our commission.
Our Downtown building has had a tremendous legacy in Lubbock! For years it served as a main hub for transport in and out of Lubbock, TX as the TNM&O Bus Station. In 2010, Experience Life bought the bus station and began an extensive remodel which led to the launch of our 2nd campus in the Fall of 2011. Over the last 8 years, we have seen thousands of people commit their lives to Christ & be baptized. Now, with our new vision, our dreams for the facility are even more exciting! Around the world where millions are coming to Christ, strategic facilities are being used for access ministry, movement training, ongoing coaching, missions mobilization, and prayer & celebration meetings for the thousands of churches in the movement. We envision using the Downtown location in the same way to help us facilitate our vision of 1,000,000 in 10 years. To help us fund this God-sized vision, we are also hosting more events in this facility. If you ever have a wedding, office Christmas party, or any other event you need a facility for, book your event at buseventcenter.com.
