Along with the values and behaviors, narrative is a critical component to creating a culture of multiplication. The narrative of a multiplication culture is composed of two parts: language and story. It is the unique language of a multiplication culture that helps create a mental paradigm for a more Biblical and movemental form of church. It is the stories of a multiplication culture that gives life to this new language and makes this form of church seem doable and desirable for everyday followers of Christ. For a leader to create a culture of multiplication they must be able to articulate the language and tell the stories.
