The Disciples Manual: Designed as a workbook for individuals or small groups who want to go deeper as disciples of Christ enveloping their lives in the teachings of Christ as Lord and Savior. This three-volume set tackles the following aspects of discipleship: The Framing of a Biblical Worldview: Understanding the Sermon on the Mount, Understanding the Kingdom of Heaven: The Parables of Jesus, and The Impact of the Kingdom’s Mission on Life: Jesus and Your Mission.
Designed to aid believers in becoming authentic disciples, each manual reveals the original meaning of Jesus’ teaching in a concise, easy ¬to¬ understand manner. This understanding—when translated into changed worldviews, modified life perspectives, new values and virtues, and new lifestyle choices—results in believers becoming the disciples Christ demands them to be in their families, communities, and world. Only as we become a disciple does He become Lord (Matthew 7:21–23; Luke 6:46–49; 8:21; 11:28).
Serving as the foundational manual, The Framing of a Biblical Worldview: Understanding the Sermon on the Mount unwraps the Sermon (Matthew 5:1–7:29) as the basis of discipleship and the acquisition of a biblical perspective on life (worldview).
Understanding the Kingdom of Heaven: The Parables of Jesus unpacks the parables, focusing on four core aspects of the Kingdom: how the kingdom of heaven operates; how one becomes a citizen of the Kingdom; how to fulfill the obligations and responsibilities of citizenship within the Kingdom—morally, ethically, relationally, and socially; and how the Kingdom’s final manifestation on earth will look.
Finally, The Impact of the Kingdom’s Mission on Life: Jesus and Your Mission tackles issues that define how a disciple lives life: finances, motivation, purpose and fulfillment, and personal commitments to family, personal identity, and legacy.
The Leaders Forum: A one-day Workshop The Leaders Forum focuses on preparing ministry leaders to effectively lead the Church within the ever-changing realities of the 21st Century. By informing lay ministry leaders and pastoral staff members of new societal, global, and missional trends leaders are better positioned to cast strategic vision and create innovative methods, formats, and platforms for being His Church. Presented in four sessions The Leaders Forum Workshop covers:
The Church And The World We Live In: How Cultural Realities Should Shape Our Ministry Initiatives (local) And Missional Outreach (global)
Setting Purpose And Missional Goals For Our Departmental Programs And Ministry Initiatives. In this session we tackle things like crafting departmental program Mission and Vision Statements, establishing Core Values that drive your ministry and form its culture, drafting a Strategic Ministry Plan, and designing a means of Assessing or measuring progress towards overarching goals within your Church or Mission Organization.
The outcome we’re working towards is to provide ministry leaders with the means of establishing a clear understanding as to why ministry departments and their programs exist and what are their aspirational goals objectives. From this Session you will be able to clearly articulate the “why” and the “what” as well as the “how” of all ministry initiatives and programs currently being conducted.
The Importance Of Building Teams: Driving Intentionally Toward A Team Approach In Ministry. The Church is good at collecting people to serve on ministry Teams voluntarily, but not investing intentionally into building those Teams or more critically each Team member. One of the top priorities and responsibilities of a Christian leader is to build people and their capacity as men and women of God, in service to God (Ephesians 4:12).
So, a core responsibility and duty of leaders is to invest in the development of others, empowering them to lead effectively – this includes laypeople who are volunteers. Leaders who do not invest in others are leaders who, intentionally or unintentionally, build ministry success around and upon their persona, dreams, aspirations, and accomplishments.
Building Your Capacity As A Leader
Also available is a two-part seminar entitled The Art Of Christian Leadership – Working Through Others and Working Towards Authentic Ministry. This two-part seminar is designed to challenge, cultivate, and equip pastors and future church leaders by focusing on the development of leadership skills, expansion of leadership capacity and capabilities, and the acquisition of godly character.
Church Planting Training Seminars are available to indigenous missionaries serving cross-culturally throughout Southeast Asia. Our strategies focus on igniting church planting movements by mobilizing and training believers in sharing the gospel through effective church planting methodologies and equipping the next generation of church leadership and multiplying disciples and healthy churches among unreached peoples and/or in restricted access communities. Several of our mission initiatives utilize humanitarian aid programs/projects that tangibly and meaningfully demonstrate the love and compassion of Christ as part of our missional strategy leading to churches planted and believers discipled.
