Training for Trainers

This week I spent some time studying the essential elements of Training for Trainers (T4T), which is the primary way in which our team will operate in developing church planters in S. Asia to be sent out. The end goal will not be to only see them plant a church, but also train new leaders that will go on to also plant a church and continue to train more leaders. This training method has in the past and will hopefully continue to lead way into a church planting movement.

Due to its simplicity and its effectiveness, I found it worth sharing some of these essential elements with you here. T4T -- an all inclusive process of evangelism, discipleship, church planting, leadership training, and reproduction.

1. Built on the Word of God.
  • II Timothy 3:16-16
  • Psalms 3:16-17
2. Obedience based Discipleship.
  • Luke 6:46-49
  • Matthew 28:19-20
3. All believers equipped to share their faith.
  • Matthew 28:19-20
  • Acts 1:8
4. Emphasis on training those who will train others.
  • II Timothy 2:2
  • John 15:16
