5- Adaptive methods

Troy Cooper Models the 411

Four questions, one piece of paper, one hour. That's all you need. Troy models how you take a new or existing believer through the 411.

Then he breaks up the training into bite sized pieces so you can learn to train others.

Don't show the videos. Learn it and you teach it. If you can't do it, you don't know it.

Finding a house of peace in Haiti

Finding a house of peace in Haiti

A few weeks ago Jacob Via sent out six teams two-by-two into different cities and towns throughout Haiti. He sent them Just like Jesus sent his disciples (Luke 10). No money, no extra resources. They are to sleep and eat in a house of peace that welcomes them. Very reproducible for locals.

Here's an unedited report from one of the teams:

Ok, me and Emma was looking for a house of Peace we get to a house and share the gospel outside the house, but a man that who have accident he lay down inside listen to us, he can't walk long time. We finish share with the people ,the man call us to come inside,we did he said to us pray for me I wanna have that person in my life today,we share again the gospel with him and have him pray, and the next day we come over he's telling us that he healed jus by taking jesus in he's life, family all turn and believe ,so that's where we start new church everyday with the family we thank God for that.today we baptize,keep praying for us
The guy in the yellow is the one was saved and healed!

Zero dollar church planting. Ordinary believers. Nothing but faith, obedience to the living Word and the Holy Spirit. This is how most of the world's population will be reached.

UPDATE

From Jacob:

The man who was healed his name is Nelyo. He works in the city, where he was in a moto accident and has been unable to walk for about four months.

Last week, Nelyo traveled into the countryside (where he has some family) in hopes of finding Voodoo healing. But then these two men show up proclaiming the good news of Jesus. He said, "I need this Jesus in my life." As he lay on his mat, he repented of his sin and made Jesus his Lord. He woke up the next morning completely healed and walking around.

As a result of his healing, several other family members believed in Jesus. David and Emmanuel, the ambassadors that brought the message, spent the next six days training the family. They trained in the 411, Commands of Christ, Sword Method, 3/3rds, and the Handy Guide for the person of peace.

Then they spent some time in the harvest and formed a new church in the home. David is already planning the return visit.

Looking for people to read the Bible with

There is a ten-year-old girl in a Cape Town school who does Discovery Bible Study at lunchtime with her friends. She's been making disciples since she was eight.

Celsus, a second-century Greek philosopher, alleged that Christianity was the faith of uneducated slaves, women and children. He complained it was spread from house to house โ€œby wool workers, cobblers, laundry workers, and the most illiterate and bucolic yokelsโ€ who claimed that they alone knew the right way to live.

Movements mobilise everyone. They are spread by insiders. They are contagious. They employ simple but profound methods. They are fuelled by commitment and passion.

Discovery Bible Study (DBS) is the key ingredient in multiplying movements. DBS is at the centre of evangelism, discipleship, leadership development and healthy church formation.

We're not talking about a tool or a program or model. We're talking about God's living Word. We're letting the Word do the work.

Whenever people gather to read the Scriptures and learn how to obey, God is powerfully present. In Acts, the Word spreads, grows, and multiplies, and wherever the Word goes, the fruit is multiplying disciples and churches.

The video above is a simple introduction to Discover Bible Study by our good friends at Beyond.

How do you get started? Ask someone. Say, "I'm looking to read the Bible with someone. Would you be interested?" Keep asking until you find someone who says yes.
