At the Center
Edited by John Holzmann
DAWN Ministries Relocates, Others Establish Offices at the USCWM
Montgomery said his organization moved because he believes Pasadena, and the Center in particular, are destined to become more and more a major focal point for the AD2000 movement and the completion of the Great Commission. (And) we see ourselves as being part of this movement and desire to be in the center of it.
C. Peter Wagner of Fuller Seminarys School of World Mission said, With all the necessary emphasis on people groups and urbanization, our strategy planning for missions must not ignore the geo-political countries of the world. Montgomery, he said, is the leader who has seen this most clearly and who (through DAWN) has taken aggressive action to implement it.
Montgomery said DAWN is seeks to encourage Christian leaders in every country of the world to plant churches in every group of 500 to 1000 citizens in every village and neighborhood and every class and kind of man. Ultimately, he said, if this is carried out, it will mean there is at least one evangelical congregation sharing Christ within easy access of every person in a country.
When this is accomplished, we do not assume that the Great Commission for a country has been completed, but that the last measurable goal toward discipling that country has been reached.

About a year ago Jim wrote, My dreams focus on being able . . . to see things the way God sees them and understand them the way He does. God granted his wish on Sunday afternoon, July 24th. John Holzmann
