Movement Pioneers look back, then move forward

Some more wisdom from someone who has been training, coaching and mentoring movement pioneers for a long, long, time.


It’s getting close to the end of the calendar year. It’s time for reflection.

So of all the guys you have stood in front of this year who is seriously getting on towards a movement?

List names. What do you and I need to do to facilitate them?

I say this because my initial training only takes some one so far, And by far the majority of guys we train never get to movement.

There are continuing new challenges that constantly pop up as obstacles to practitioners.

Another way to look at this is how many movements: incipient, potential, or actual are underway from my training efforts this past year.

I recognized that God and many other persons have had a hand in these, but realistically where have I made a difference and what do I need to do sustain one or more of these.

In hind sight would it be belter to drop everything and pour massive energy into two or three guys who might become Ying Kais or at least person God uses to reach a million.

At every stage of a movement they will face challenges they’ve never faced before:

  • First handfull of believers
  • First hundred
  • First martyrdom
  • First scandal
  • First thousand
  • First wide distance geographical expansion
  • First ten thousand .
  • First need for mature mid-level leaders
  • First encounter with traditional nay saying Christianity

There are unique challenges that each practitioner may not have faced before. They’ll need a coach.
