Acts 6:7: “...the Word of God spread, and the disciples multiplied”
From Feb-Nov 2018 we developed a new curriculum for disciple-making - Sent 6:7. We’re grateful for the results of a few test pilots so far. Sent 6:7 is a process to equip people to initiate, build and multiply faith communities and disciple-making groups.This is vital for the vision of everyone knowing someone who truly follows Jesus.
The men below just finished a 10-session SENT 6:7 training. At the end of the last session they were asked about the highlights of this training experience, and what their next steps were for applying it. Here’s what they said:
“The ‘My Story in One-Sentence' training has changed my witness. I’ve had two opportunities since then to share my faith. I feel prepared and confident.” ~ Gary M.
“Since starting my group, my guys are inviting two of their colleagues to join us. I’ve so appreciated all the tools. They’ve helped me train the guys. Particularly the Holy Spirit tool - in the GOD TOOL app – it’s been life changing.” ~ Troy
“I now recognize the community God has given me. The Bless Every Home app has helped me to notice my neighbors. Now, as I pray for them, God is making me aware of them. I know He wants me to reach them.” ~ Jason
“For 40 years, I’ve been taking. Now I’ve learned how to give back. The most helpful thing to me was understanding God has given me an oikos network. I love the transferability of the 3/3s method of disciple-making in Sent 6:7.” ~ Gary McC
“I love this process and structure.” ~ Tony
One church has decided to change their community groups to Sent 6:7 groups,
making a commitment to add “mission” to its “worship and community” as a church.
Pray for us as we take this new, tested curriculum to our partners and friends nationally. *
Our goals: more living on mission – disciples who live the Prayer-Care-Share life-style – and to multiply faith communities that love our cities well.
* PERSPECTIVE FOR PRAYER: Two Sent 6:7 groups (begun in January 2019) will multiply to 20 by the fall in KC alone. In NYC in 2018, one training led to two trainings (hosted in MPLS & Chicago). Now there are 19 new faith communities among Ethiopians in San Jose, Denver, Houston, Columbus & Atlanta.
