This year’s conference held at the start of October featured many well known emergent speakers, including Hillsong’s Brian Houston, the cult-like 3DM movement founder Mike Breen, and even a Roman Catholic priest. The increasing unity among these false teachers, ostensibly from movements with irreconcilable differences in their teachings, is very concerning.
These conferences act as a sort of ‘Trojan horse’ for spreading the cancer of false teaching to young pastors, church leaders and seminary students, so it is best to be aware of them and to warn others.

Hi. I was hoping for more info on Mike Breen’s 3DM movement. There is a disciple making organization in my area that models after his teachings.
I researched Mike Breen and his 3DM movement a while ago but unfortunately can’t remember everything that I read at the time (except that he was one to mark and avoid). However, I was able to find the following articles again. The comments sections are very eye opening.
