Have a Radical New Year

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. [Romans 15:13]

As the new year kicks off, open your heart to the Gospel with a fresh perspective through these radical action plans based on the New York Times bestseller, Radical,by David Platt.


  • New Year’s Resolution #1: Pray.
  • New Year’s Resolution #2: Read.
  • New Year’s Resolution #3: Give.
  • New Year’s Resolution #4: Go.
  • New Year’s Resolution #5: Serve.


  • Choose unreached people groups to pray about monthly through the year.
  • Make every member of your group a Bible teacher.
  • Figure out how to make your group a “gospel investment club.”
  • Turn your small group into a missions team in 2011.
  • Plan for the multiplication of your small group in the new year.


  • Lead your church to “pray around the world” in 2011.
  • Start a church-wide Bible reading plan.
  • Give a “firstfruits” offering to the Lord.
  • Set your most ambitious mission goals ever for 2011.


Radical 3D-white
“Do you believe that Jesus is worth abandoning everything for? Do you believe him enough to obey him and to follow him wherever he leads, even when the crowds in our culture -maybe even our churches- turn the other way?”
In Radical, David Platt invites you to encounter what Jesus actually said about being his disciple, and then obey what you have heard. He challenges you to consider with an open heart how we have manipulated a God-centered gospel to fit our human-centered preferences. With passionate storytelling and convicting biblical analysis, Platt calls into question a host of comfortable notions that are common among Christ’s followers today. Then he proposes a radical response: live the gospel in ways that are true, filled with promise, and ultimately world changing
