Why We Exist

A New Paradigm for the Local Church

The church in North America is on the precipice of another monumental shift. If churches and church leaders don’t make a significant shift in both paradigm and practice, churches will continue to decrease in size, influence, and kingdom impact. Too many churches are attempting to move into tomorrow using the strategies and paradigms of yesterday, which are increasingly ineffective in multiplying disciples of Jesus.

If we’re honest, the prevailing model in the local church in the U.S. is almost 100% focused on bringing people in to deeper and deeper engagement in the ministries of the church. That may sound good on the surface, but the alarming truth is that engagement with church programs does not automatically produce true disciples of Jesus. We need to shift our model to include a radical commitment to empowering disciples and sending them out on mission in their everyday lives.

That’s why Pivvot exists. We want to forge a new future together for the church in North America so that we more closely embody the movement Jesus started … making each of us more effective for His kingdom.

The church in North America is dramatically overprogrammed and underdiscipled.

Pivvot was founded by Will Mancini, Kelly Kannwischer, and Dave Rhodes. Learn more about them and other members of the team.
Thought Leadership
The philosophy, tools, and approach used by Pivvot and the Future Church Co. can be found in several books written by Will Mancini.

Pivvot is a part of the Future Church Company, which is three interconnected organizations that exists to help the church embody the movement Jesus founded.

Three facets make up the church of today—individuals, local churches, and networks/denominations. Future Church Co. contains three organizations, each intentionally designed to serve one of these three facets of the church. Each of these organizations—Younique, Pivvot, and Denominee—deliver practical tools and interactive processes that empower followers of Jesus to design the future.

“One of the things that differentiates humans from anything else in creation is our ability to imagine a future that’s different.”
