The (1st EVER) i61 Partner Press
Hey Church Partners >
YOU ARE AMAZING! (A quick hi from Johnny Boy, founder of i61m)

WOW. The first ever biannual update for our amazing Jesus sharing churches! Trail blazers, leaders at the cutting edge… we’re honoured to partner with you!

Together, we really are part of something momentous. We are those who have said YES to building hearts and habits. YES to building a Jesus sharing culture in your church. YES to transforming our friends lives for eternity!
i61@home & Take 5
Groups Growing >
In September last year we launched our @home series for small groups. 30 minute videos to encourage and inspire Christians to intentionally set ‘acts’, to think about those God has put in our lives and to say yes to prompts from the Holy Spirit to make friends outside of our Christian bubbles. Using gems from these times, we’ve produced a Take 5 playlist for shorter timeframes, whenever and wherever you gather!

We’ve been blessed with amazing friends inviting us into their homes and offices…

Bishop Mike Royal
Thanks again Mike + Viviene for allowing us into your kitchen for the day and apologies again for the little accident with the vase : ( Mike shared some incredible gems with us on sharing your story and your faith and conquering the fears we all face sometimes!
Lisa Pearce
John sat down with Lisa (Open Doors and CAP) for coffee before filming. She asked if the language of ‘goals’ on our app reflected our heart (people, not projects!). We replaced ‘goals' with ‘acts’! We're not precious. It's His Kingdom we're building, not ours. Failing fast is our mantra! Thanks Lisa 🙂
Gavin Calver
Gavin invited us to film at the EA offices in London. The amazing team even gave us their chairs, plants and tables for our set! Gavin brought down-to-earth, incredible wisdom and encouragement for our viewers. We're back at EA soon with Rachael Heffer and Jo Frost. We’ll put all the props back, promise!
Natalie Williams
The wonderful Natalie at Jubilee+ opened up her church to us for filming and shared her personal story of finding faith, coming from a none Christian family is a journey that many can relate to. What a confidence builder!
Andy Hawthorne
What can we say... as Founder of The Message Trust in Manchester, Andy has so many stories to share about his faith journey! Years of praying by his Mum and her friends in church and his God given heart for helping those in need. His passion and heart to share Jesus will ignite the same Spirit that lives in YOU!

Your Roadmap >
We’re journeying with and listening to you as our partners. We saw the need for a distinct track and timeline for the journey of culture change with church leaders and their communities.

The i61 Roadmap is a clear plan across 3 essential tracks to see that culture change happen: Leadership, Sundays & Groups. Scroll down to the visual roadmap below for more info.
‘I didn’t want another 6 week course. I wanted to make sharing Jesus our lifestyle! When I found i61 movement I said ‘Thank you Jesus!’

> Pastor Tom Bowring
Oakham Baptist Church

It’s not overnight, and we’re with you all the way. Our church support team is always available to provide help and guidance. Please email partner@i61m.org. Dave and Gill are super happy to help.

> Leadership


Culture change starts with leaders, willing to embrace and model sharing life, faith and Jesus. We have a packaged solution to help you become a Jesus-sharing Church, and a dedicated support team to help you embed it.

> Sundays


Changing culture takes consistency. After an official i61 launch, regular testimonies and short videos on Sundays keep momentum. Over time, your church begin to boldly invite their friends to meet Jesus for themselves. Your church welcomes them home, thriving with a faith-filled body and new disciples.

> Groups


We journey with you through our online series. Groups turn intention into action by regularly gathering to set Acts in the App. Habits are built through accountability and consistency. Confidence grows with encouragement and prayer.

The JK Q&A >
*About i61m! Our monthly Q&A on Zoom is an exclusive opportunity for you as leaders to ask questions, share encouragements and fill your boots with all that’s new for our church partners.

The stories and encouragement that our churches share are inspirational! If you’d like us to help kick start i61m with your church, email partner@i61.org. We’d be thrilled to have a Zoom with your small group leaders too.
AMAZING organizations
Resource Partners >

We partner with other organisations to help share life, faith and Jesus, they are here for you and your church to use.
See them all here.

This month our focus is on Speak Life – their vision is to re-evangelize church and world through captivating, Christ centred communication. Glen Scrivener and the team have produced the fantastic 321 series for Christians – Discovering Life according to Jesus!

We’re sure it will boost your confidence and open up some conversations with those yet to know Jesus. Excitingly, we just filmed a brand new i61@home episode with Glen.

We couldn’t do any of this without you. THANK YOU from the whole team at i61m
