Michelle and I are training in Launceston, Tasmania on the weekend. It's our first training since returning to Australia.
We'll be at the Tailrace Community Church where we first trained five years ago. Over one hundred people are registered from around the city and the state.
It's months since I last did a formal training, so I'm rusty. Here's how I've been preparing with a little help from a friend.
1. The 411
My first priority was to watch Troy Cooper's 411 video. I didn't just watch it, I stopped the video and practiced each of the exercises.
2. Pre-training Practice
We have a practice planned with the local team the day before. We're equipping them as trainers. So I went over the video on preparing the training team.
3. Luke 10 House of Peace
We're planning to go out into the community over lunch so I went over the House of Peace study.
4. Then there's the video on how to debrief the house of peace search.
5. 3-Thirds Discipleship
Once they're sharing the gospel, people need to know how to do Discovery Bible study with someone who wants to learn more (7-Stories of Hope), or with a new believer (Commands of Christ).
6. 3-Touches of Training
We'll finish with a challenge to commit to 3-Touches of Training.
