The Compound Effect (to be published by Dawson Media May 2011) see attached
“Kingdom Impact” is: The transformation of people's lives through the application of Christ's love and biblical principles. The Compound Effect defines, measures, and illustrates Kingdom Impact and offers a road map to understand how to mature our business competence and spiritual maturity in such a way that our Kingdom Impact is multiplied exponentially. Kingdom Impact transformation requires a life of righteousness through Christ and an adherence to the principles of the Gospels and Scripture. True Kingdom Impact transformation is evidenced by measurable improvements in the spiritual, social, financial and human existence of people. Transformation also implies that these changes are positive and sustained through multiple generations. Transformation demonstrates itself in an overall cultural improvement in quality of life, physical well-being, social harmony and political freedom. Kingdom Impact power is the ability to bring about this sustainable transformation. We can harness the power of Kingdom Impact by recognizing our rights and responsibilities as followers of Christ, by applying biblical principles to our human interactions and relationships and by applying the resources that God has entrusted to us including time knowledge, relationships, creativity, finances and possessions.

mature our business competence and spiritual maturity in such a way that
our Kingdom Impact is multiplied exponentially.
The Compound Effect
A biblical road map to transformational business stewardship!
God's expectation is for all people to be transformed by the gospel of Christ. The Compound Effect proposes that Kingdom Impact is a result of a direct correlation between the spiritual maturity and business competence of the individual business owner and their organization. The magnitude of their personal and corporate Kingdom Impact offers an indication of how much transformation will be accomplished. Kingdom Impact is about multiplication according to God’s principles and our obedience to godly principles as business leaders.
When our level of business competence is multiplied by our level of spiritual maturity, the resulting value is a reflection of our Kingdom Impact; the stronger our business competence and the deeper our spiritual maturity the more transformational our Kingdom Impact. The Compound Effect offers a method to define and measure the growth and effectiveness of the Kingdom Impact in our lives and our businesses.
The definition of Kingdom Impact is: The transformation of people's lives through the application of Christ's love and biblical principles. The Compound Effect defines, measures, and illustrates Kingdom Impact and offers a process for business leaders and organizations to understand how to grow and mature in such a way that you steadily increase our transformational Kingdom Impact.
Others, like seed sown on good soil, hear the word, accept it, and produce a crop — some thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times what was sown. (Mark 4:20, NIV)
Growth in the biblical and natural context is referred to as maturing. There are numerous Scriptures pertaining to the concept of maturing. The Bible provides some very specific instructions on how we are to mature.
Make every effort to add to [mature in] your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure [maturing], they will keep you from being ineffective and productive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.(2 Peter 1:5-8, NIV)
The key words and this Scripture are “to add to” and in “increasing measure” which imply maturing. The warning in this Scripture is that if you fail “to add to” you will become unproductive and ineffective in your knowledge of Jesus Christ and your ability to improve his kingdom here on earth.
Ephesians 4:13:Until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature.
Philippians 3:14: I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. All of us, then, who are mature should take such a view of things.
Hebrews 5:14: But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.
James 1:4: Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
Maturing is a process that occurs not only with people but also in organizations and in the natural world. Plants and animals mature. We mature. Organizations mature. God established his kingdom on earth on the idea that all life would involve birth, learning, maturing, and physical death. Spiritual maturity is a lifetime process of learning and applying the principles of righteousness that God demonstrated through the life of Christ as described in the Scriptures. Business competence is the process of maturing in the knowledge and skills required to effectively operate a business, organization, or ministry. The Compound Effect embraces the idea that our business is our ministry and our ministry is our business and we are only a steward, not an owner, of all resources at our disposal. Those resources include the time, money, assets, knowledge, and relationships associated with your businesses. The wisdom, maturity, and creativity with which you deploy these assets will determine the measure of our Kingdom Impact. When those resources are deployed with righteousness, wisdom, skill, creativity, and purpose over the course of our lifetime, our Kingdom Impact will be profound.
The Compound Effect provides a lifetime road map for young entrepreneurs, emerging business owners, and existing enterprises to grow, thrive, and profit while serving the Lord’s purposes for his kingdom. Our map includes directions and signposts for both the business and spiritual aspects of owning and operating a kingdom-minded business. The journey of building a successful business is never easy but The Compound Effect will keep us from getting lost and confused and will measure the miles of your progress.
