From Neil Cole, The History of Church Multiplication Associates (October 2008):

A pivotal year in CMA’s history was 1995. It was the beginning of a two-year drought for church planting. This drought brought some of the most fruitful changes and advances in strategic development, which would bear much fruit in the years to come. It was during this year we introduced the Leadership Farm Systems, and published Raising Leaders for the Harvest and Life Transformation Groups (LTG) cards. Within a single year of the LTG cards being published, word had spread. LTGs were found on nearly every continent of the globe…

Also in 1999, CMAResources, our training ministry, was born with its first publication of Neil Cole’s book Cultivating a Life for God (April 1999). The first printing was sold out before year end. Today almost 30,000 copies have been sold. As we began to share our learning, it seemed wise, to hold a weekend “retreat” that would overview the organic church planting process for our burgeoning group. In the year 2000, a new form of training and farming of church planters was birthed– the Organic Church Planter’s Greenhouse

Every year we have increased the number of Greenhouse trainings and Greenhouse trainers. This year (2008) we will average a Greenhouse every week and touch a minimum of 3,000 people with this training, spanning 12 different countries as well as many states in a single year.
