You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus,and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. 2 Tim 2: 2
Most churches recognise the need for outreach. Not all of them know where to start. We are working alongside a number of church leaders to help them address this question. Our particular focus is on allowing people to discover the bible for themselves, rather than to be preached at or instructed in a set of behaviours and beliefs. So we're happy to work with churches and individuals who are happy to think outside of the box. People who are more passionate about reaching those who have never heard than they are about filling pews.
So how can we help you get started?
- By training in Church Planting and Discovery Bible Groups
- By providing mentoring and support
We're not claiming to have all the answers, and we ourselves are being mentored by others who are further along the journey. Mentoring is a way of passing on knowledge. A sharing between practitioners. We think it is what Jesus was doing with his disciples. It's also good fun!
