Six Qualities of a Good Catalyst to Ignite and Accelerate Movements

What a catalyst does is it maintains its own integrity as it interacts with other properties increasing their rate of effectiveness without losing its own potency or integrity. In other words a catalyst accelerates a natural occurrence, without being consumed by that process. The art of designing catalytic ideas and methods is basically my role in our movement. I am an architect of ideas with catalytic elements to fuel the acceleration of Jesus movements everywhere. 

Through trial and error over the past 20 years, I have found that there are six ingredients of a good catalyst that ignites and accelerates movements. 
  1.  A Simple Process
  2. A Small Pattern
  3. A Surprising Proposition 
  4. A Significant Principle
  5. A Sticky Potential
  6. A Spreading Pathway 
  In the next few blog posts I will elaborate on each one. This is all content drawn from my book Church 3.0: Upgrades for the Future of the Church

Curious about the different group sizes you reference in 3.0. What age range would you consider for a group of 10-12 people? is that 10-12 adults (18+) or 10-12 adults/teens (13+) or is that 10-12 total bodies?
