Programme Detail: Starting and Multiplying Street Fellowships

Language of this entry English (UK, International)
Name of Programme / Training Resource Starting and Multiplying Street Fellowships
Type of Training Individual standalone programme
Reference Number MTS11
Description Not only are we to evangelise, we are also to train Christians to be responsible disciples who function as Christ’s Body in their community. This course concentrates on beginning groups in homes which then themselves multiply. These principles are applicable both in closed countries and also in the West where secularism, individualism and inhumanity contrast starkly with the values of God’s new humanity in Christ. The syllabus covers: - Assessing different models – house churches, cell churches, G12 groups and street fellowships - Building an effective church planting team - Assessing your area and prayerfully considering how to begin - Planning and ordering your own life and family in preparation for the work - Evangelising to form the first group - Forming a plan for continual discipling - Training new leaders and creating a leadership training structure - Multiplying groups and networking The course is essentially practical but involves prayerful study and reflection as you work in your street to raise up disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is essential that others back you in prayer in this important ministry. You will need to dedicate several hours a week to evangelism and discipleship in your own street.
