Our strategy is to identify, equip, and deploy leaders. We train anyone, anywhere.

 
 
1. Identifying Leaders
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
2. Equipping Leaders
  • Overall Approach: We leverage online training platforms and offer an array of administrative and coached mentoring services, allowing us to train any Christian leader right in their ministry context in cooperation with the local pastor and church.
  • Anyone, Anywhere: Examples include elders, deacons, ministry leaders, commissioned pastors, commissioned lay pastors, preaching elders, church planters, ordained ministers and more.
  • Competency-Based: We equip leaders using a competency-based approach that builds on the desired competencies of local churches and denominational partners – equipping leaders for ministry effectiveness and credentialing for service within their churches.  
  • Coached Mentoring: We use experienced ministers and Christian leaders who “pull out” (coaching) and “pour in” (mentoring) – helping emerging leaders grow in their knowing, being, doing and serving.
We offer specific training in the following areas:
  • Ministry Leader / Lifelong Learning: We provide training for any leaders who desire to grow in their competencies or refresh their learning to meet the challenges of ministry today.  We offer a low-cost, monthly fee for this service.
  • Commissioned (Lay) Pastor and Preaching Elder: We train leaders for credentialing within their churches, including commissioned pastor, commissioned lay pastor and preaching elder training.
  • Church Planters / Multiplication Leaders:
    • Assessment: We assess church planters for effectiveness using the ISA for church planting, the Ridley Assessment, and the Kolbe index.  Other tools may also be used as required by denominational partners.
    • Fund-Raising Training: We apprentice multiplication leaders in understanding biblical principles on stewardship and fund-raising and assist the leader in the actual process of raising funds for their multiplication project.
      • Distinctives in our approach are:
        › We train teams of leaders within church plants.  Not only is the multiplication leader trained, but we also train members of the core team, thereby multiplying the effectiveness of the training. › We provide actual coached assistance in the raising of funds. › We don’t just train teams, but we coach them in the actual work of fundraising. The training itself involves fundraising.
    • Apprenticing for Church Multiplication Effectiveness: We offer in-person or distance learning apprenticeships that train the apprentice for multiplication effectiveness.
      • Distinctives of our approach are:
        › We integrate and deepen the fundraising, coaching and multiplication training over the course of the one-year apprenticeship. › We apprentice not just the multiplication leader but teams.

        › We apprentice a culture of multiplication within the plant toward the goal of each new plant multiplying every year.

    • Coaching of the Multiplication Leader: We provide coaching for the multiplication leader as well as train the leader to coach their internal leaders
    • Church Planter/Multiplication Leader Training: We provide training for multiplication leaders in all essential competencies.
    • House Church Training: We provide essential training for multiplication leaders that are called to develop house churches.
 
3. Deploying Leaders
  • We offer church multiplication deployment opportunities to all approved multiplication leaders.
  • We help multiplication leaders develop their church plant.
  • We offer services to new churches, including accounting, bookkeeping, coaching, etc.  See the Multiply Churches page for more information.
