• Experienced church planters and trainers can orient your pastors and missionaries to mentoring and coaching practices that help apprentice leaders to multiply congregations and cell groups.
  • Through bible discovery, skits, simulations and discussions, your workers will learn and practice the skills that help congregations and cells to reproduce.
  • Where churches, missions and development programmes have adopted biblical convictions and practices, new congregations and cells will normally be planted with new believers.
  • Training workshops also introduce several training materials that can be freely copied and easily translate and adapted into local languages.
  • To keep workshops affordable, trainers ask for nothing more than the cost of their transport, and they accept local hospitality.
  • Our trainers speak English, French, Indonesian and Spanish. Workshops typically last between two and four days.

Basic convictions

  1. Co-workers agree on their vision to multiply congregations or cells, and they lay plans to do so.
  2. Shepherds make disciples by training them to obey Jesus' commands before all else, the way Jesus said to do so.
  3. Co-ordinators help shepherds and congregations to integrate evangelism and social projects, providing training and training materials.
  4. Shepherds train newer shepherds by mentoring them, the way Jesus did.
  5. Congregations reproduce themselves by sending their God-given apostles, as the Antioch congregation did.
  6. Trainers listen to their apprentices report what their congregation is doing, and then help them to plan their field work and assign studies accordingly.
  7. Apprentices apply their studies at once, by shepherding their flocks, and by training newer shepherds.
