• 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

In his landmark work, Christian Mission in the Modern World, John Stott writes that evangelism is sharing the good news with others, no matter what the outcome. It is using words to describe the events of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection for our sins “Our goal,” Stott concludes, “is to present Christ Jesus in the Power of The Holy Spirit that people may be persuaded to come to Him in penitence.”CS-masthead-logo

Last June I shared how engaging so many of you on your fields reinforced both your and my desire for ongoing training in the basic core CPM attitudes, skills and knowledge that all church planters employ.  Effective church planters are characterized by a learning mindset, always sharpening their ability to communicate meaningfully the story of Jesus.

The Roadmap Team, led by Joi, along with Daniel, Laura, Amy, Mike, Bob and Chuck, has developed our first online module, Evangelism: Abundantly Sowing the Seed.  Eight workers from Asia, Europe and Africa volunteered to help field test the module in September and October.  Their response was positive and helped the team improve the module in order to offer it to all WT workers throughout 2013.

One couple, working in Asia, was so challenged by the module that they are considering the possibility of serving as facilitators.  One section of the module that got them thinking was how to address barriers and bridges to the gospel, which led to further discussion with teammates.  Interaction with people from other fields also produced insightful discussion from various perspectives.

You will soon be receiving material which will tell you how you will be able to participate in this module.  It will be offered numerous times during 2013.
