The 4Fields Intensive equips participants with Biblical principles and best practice methods to multiply disciples and churches.

The 4Fields of Kingdom Growth answers these questions:

  1. Entry: How do I enter a new field?

  2. Gospel: What do I say?

  3. Discipleship: How do I make disciples?

  4. Church: How will I form healthy churches?

  5. Leaders: How do I multiply leaders?

This Intensive is designed for local church workers, church planters and team members, cross-cultural workers and movement catalysts.

Participants will experience training that involves instruction, Bible discovery and practice in an interactive learning community. Participants will leave with a clear vision and plan for reaching their community, city, and beyond.

The training team includes Rachel and Troy Cooper (USA), Russell Godward (UK) and Steve and Michelle Addison (Australia).

Complete the attached pre-work. If you don’t finish, don’t let it stop you from coming—but if you are not willing to do this prep work, this training is not for you.

Jeff Sundell is hitting the road in 2016. 

If you want to learn how multiply disciples and churches get to one of these in 2016.

UPDATE: More options for mostly US based training do whatever you can to get to one this year.

Knowledge does not equal understanding

This just came in from Zach Medlock. 

Hey Steve

Great video for any Timothy groups, churches, or whoever when discussing the amount of “unlearning" it takes for us Christians to align ourselves with Biblical patterns.

Knowledge does not equal understanding. We learn by doing. Being told not to be afraid of failing forward was some of the best advice Ron Surgeon and I received four years ago.

A great clip to use if you’re training existing believers to multiply disciples and churches.

When it comes to training, what's true north?

As I mentioned, we’re learning a lot about training and mobilising in the short time we’ve been in the UK.

Here’s a few lessons that point to true north when it comes to training.

  1. Train just enough to get people started in the harvest.
  2. Don’t train in order to change people priorities. Train people who want to make disciples.
  3. The more people apply, the more training and input they receive.
  4. Let the stories of what God is doing attract others to the training.
  5. Start training with the basic skills, not movement principles.
  6. After people start doing something it’s time to teach them movement principles. Not before.
  7. Stay in touch after the training and look for those who are quick to do something. Give them your time.
  8. Don’t make enemies. Give people permission to opt in (or out) at the level for which they are ready.
  9. The end game is a team of people who want to make disciple and mobilise others.
  10. Train broadly to find the people you need to go deep with.
