Intro to Producing

A state of producing means exhibiting the fruit of the Spirit reproducing their faith being on mission and living lives that reflect Jesus.

Quick Tips:
Producers aren’t “done.” They haven’t arrived. They’re still seeking, receiving, and following like the rest of us. They’ve just had more practice, and they’re quicker to be humble. Encourage them wildly. We need them. Connect them to people to lead if they have capacity. Help them connect to people who can help them refill. Refresh them with encouragement, community, vision, and celebrations of the breakthroughs being made in the spiritual realm because of their faithfulness.


That means they’re experiencing regular reliance on the Holy Spirit which leads to fruit naturally growing around them.

  • They’re not perfect, but they have loads of experience seeking, receiving, and following. They’re quick to notice when something isn’t right in them, and they seek, receive, and follow their way through to the other side.
  • They’re familiar with suffering. God has trained them and given them perspective and trust in the midst of chaos, pain, or struggle. It’s rooted them, and they’re learning to walk others through the same.
  • They’re in touch with their gifts and limitations, and they’re learning to call it out in others.
  • They’re talking to God all throughout the day and hearing from him too. They’re wondering how to pray without ceasing.
  • They show the fruit of the Spirit more naturally, but they still have their weak moments. They crave environments and people who can challenge, encourage, and lead them.
  • They’re growing in humility, worship, discernment, and intercession.
  • They believe in supernatural healing. They pray for it often, and are starting to see it happen.
  • They’re confident and practiced in walking others through repentance, forgiveness and healing. They know their authority and the enemy knows they’re one to watch.


They’re wrestling with:

  • Trying to make the most of their resources. Praying for chances to bless others and multiply their investments for further impact.
  • How to take on the problem of poverty in their city. They generate ideas, relationships, initiatives and lifestyles that take care of the poor like Jesus did.
  • Training others to use their money as a tool (and not be controlled by it)


They’re focused on:

  • Remaining surrendered, giving up the need to strive, impress, perform, prove, or accomplish. They do accomplish impressive things, but most of the time, it’s from a place of abiding in the love they already feel, not striving for approval or fame from anyone else.
  • Figuring out where and how to share what God has done with them. What platforms, environments, and media fit them best and can multiply the spiritual capital they’ve received?
  • Praying for the world and particularly Israel, learning what it means to be grafted into what God started with Abraham.
  • They like themselves, but they don’t think of themselves too often. They know they’re not perfect. They see themselves very clearly. Because they receive God’s words about them, they are content with who they are. Image or stress isn’t on their mind very often.
  • They ask God how they can do even greater things like Jesus said we would.


They’re wrestling with:

  • Sometimes they have clarity, but many wrestle with where to spend time and with who, because there’s so many places they could engage. They’re learning how to only do what they see the Father doing.
  • They keep strong accountability with trusted friends to protect themselves against temptation physically.


They’re wrestling with:

  • They’re building into disciples who make disciples. They don’t know how to do it perfectly, so they wrestle with who, how many, what frequency as their life seasons change. They’re regularly asking God who they should tie themselves to and when.
  • People seek them out for wisdom, counsel, prayer and discipleship.
  • The relationships closest to them are the healthiest and most intimate. Their spouse, kids or roommates are the first to look up to them and celebrate their character.
  • They have seekers around them who are attracted to their lifestyle, and they’re intentional about introducing new people to God.
