• Our hope-filled future is bound up in sharing the story of Jesus, in discipling others, in bringing those disciples together into communities of believers, and in developing and releasing those believers to create other communities... till Jesus the King comes again!

Core Skills and LL3

Each worker/leader partnering with World Team Global will be able to give voice to ‘who we are’ and ‘what we do’

This is one of our global priorities which we will be working towards in the coming months.

Several steps will move us in this direction.  First, we will draft the “WT Core”, a common covenant that will delineate who we are as members of the WT community and what we do.  All workers will be asked to affirm this covenant, giving voice to what unites us together as a WT community.

Next, we will select 4-5 key skills of the CPM Roadmap in which every worker within WT will be trained.  Some may feel that they have already grasped these skills, but in order to build a common body of knowledge and skills everyone must go through the same training.  Sharing the story of the Gospel will be the first key skill we will address.

Finally, every worker will assess their competency needs on an annual basis and will be asked to further develop themselves over the course of that coming year.  Training, mentoring, online courses and other delivery options will be offered to assist each one to grow in their competencies.  We will call this “LL3” or lifelong learning.  This cannot be optional as all of us need to grow further in our skills and abilities.

None of this is to the neglect of character development.  However, I am sure that if you stepped onto a plane and the pilot announced that he was a person of moral integrity and fiber, but knew nothing about flying airplanes, you would quickly step off that plane.  Yes, a balance is needed.  Let us apply as great an energy to our competency development as we do to our character development.

  1. Growing in our understanding of the gospel and how to be more effective in our task of influencing others towards Christ should be a hallmark of who we are. Wth so much diversity in the people we are trying to reach and the depth of the gospel; we should all seek to absorb more of the gospel and sharpen our abilities to share it with others more effectively. I think this is a great start not only in helping each WT member grow in compentency but also to bring the main thing back to the forefront which can be sidelined by other daily tasks we do.

    • That’s the balance we seek. Our desire to grow in our competencies should flow our of our passion to glorify God. The Gospel becomes the “power source” so to speak to be able to do the work He calls us to do.

  2. Spot on, James and David! I agree and look forward to being a part of rolling out this training – helping our workers to increase their competency in evangelism – in the year ahead.
