To accomplish our global strategy, T-Net and
TOPIC have formed a strategic partnership.
PARTNERSHIP
11
What is the situation of missions today?
I N T E R N A T I O N A L
12
What is the situation of missions today?
The good news is that the church is growing.
13
Annual Overall Growth
  • Evangelicals are growing between 4.7 and 5.3.
  • Almost double the growth rate of Islam, which is
    2.7.
  • Three times more than the rate of world
    population growth, 1.6

Patrick Johnstone, The Church is Bigger Than You
Think, William Carey Library, 1998
14
  • 180 million people saw the Jesus film in 1999 !
  • Campus Crusade

There are more mass evangelism ministries.
Amsterdam 2000
1 million new churches started in 148 countries
(1990 2000)
DAWN
15
What is the situation of missions today?
But with this growth, the entire face of missions
is changing.
16
Luis Bush, International Director of AD 2000
One of the miracles of the 20th century - which
forever changes the focus of missions for the
21st - is the fact that the Western missions have
been so successfulwe are running out of
traditional mission fields. There arent many
left.
17
Joshua Project 2000
  • Of the 6 Billion people in the world
  • Percent lacking a church 6.3
  • Percent lacking church planting team 1.9
  • Percent untargeted 1.3
  • (Based on ethnolinguistic people groups)

18
The Rate is increasing
  • We expect 3 million new church plants in the
    next 10 years. Pastoral leadership development
    needs to catch-up.

- DAWN Ministries
- Every Home for Christ
We start 50,000 new Light Houses per day, each
reaching 4 other people. We need thousands of
pastoral leaders to shepherd these new
believers.
19
We know how to evangelize and plant churches on a
massive scale...
  • Butwho will lead and feed these sheep?

20
Today,there are approximately 2 million
pastoral leaders who lack essential training!
21
What is the situation of missions today?
In addition, the primary concern has changed from
numerical growth to producing mature disciples.
22
John Stott, First International Consultation on
Discipleship, Eastbourne, England.
In some places the church is growing strongly,
but even there the problem is that of growth
without depth. In short, the church lacks proper
discipleship Our zeal to go wider has not been
matched by a commitment to go deeper.
23
Philip Flores, Philippines
For the past 25 to 30 years the church has
focused on church growth and church
multiplication, and the results are phenomenal.
But the other side of the harvest field confronts
us. New church starts are not keeping pace with
either actual or potential church growth.
Maturity of new church starts is still a major
issue. There is a back door among new church
starts. Discipleship has never reached the level
necessary to sustain healthy church growth.
Leadership has not reached a level sufficient to
supply existing leadership needs. The challenge
before the church in the new millenium is no
longer church growth, but church health.
24
Bobby Gupta, Director,
Hindustan Bible Institute
Our churches are a kilometer wide and a
millimeter deep.
25
Today, to most efficiently complete the job,
missions must shift in two ways
1. The focus must shift from sending




foreign church planters to training




the 2 million untrained indigenous




pastors/planters. 2. The
focus must shift from the




mission field (numerical growth)




to the mission yield (mature




disciples).
26
As a local church, how can we get maximum
leverage in this changing situation?
27
Consider Two Alternatives
Traditional Approach 1. Support American
Missionary 2. Cost 70k/year 3. Impact
6.3 of world 4. Result 1 church/5
years 5 converts/year
New Approach 1. Local pastor trains 20
indigenous pastors 2. Cost 620/pastor/year
(12,400/year) 3. Impact 93 of
world 4. Result 100 churches/5 years
1,000 converts per year
28
As a steward of Gods resources, local churches
must shift the balance of their missions
involvement to be most effective in these
changing times.
29
What are the specifics of this approach ?
30
Step One
Church contacts T-Net and settles on 1 or more
countries or training centers in which to train
pastors. (1 American pastor or mature, trained
lay leader will be paired with 20 indigenous
pastors in a training center. More than 1 center
may exist in the same location.)
31
Step Two
Church understands and commits to the financial
requirements for this center. 1. Pays all its
own travel hospitality expenses. 2.
Provides/pays for printing costs of training
materials. 3. Often pays for travel and other
costs of students. 4. Usually pays for
translation of training materials. 5. Total
cost/trainer/trip 3,000 or less 6. Supports
T-Net on sliding scale for 200/month or
less per center.
32
Step Three
Church understands and prepares trainers to teach
curriculum.
33
THREE LEVELS OF TRAINING
Basic Level Introductory Course Evangelism,
Disciplemaking, Multiplication Course One
Bible Study Methods Bible Walk-through Course
Two Developing the foundation of a
disciplemaking church Course Three Survey of
O.T. Course Four Survey of N.T. Intermediate
Level Course Five Developing leaders
launching disciplemaking ministries Course Six
Survey of Bible Doctrine Course Seven Preaching
Biblical messages Advanced Level Course Eight
Managing and multiplying disciplemaking
churches Course Nine Church planting Course Ten
Church history Optional Course Church
administration,




pastoral ministries, counseling
34
Step Four
Church understands its responsibilities and the
responsibilities of the pastoral group being
trained.
35
Division of Responsibilities
What the local church provides 1. Help in
strategic planning. 2. Experienced trainers with
all expenses paid. 3. Training curriculum
printing expenses for first generation. 4.
Translation expenses if absolutely necessary. 5.
Where absolutely necessary, financial resources
to enable



multiplication to successive generations.
6. Coaching consultation to help finish the
plan. What indigenous pastor group provides 1.
The strategic plan to reach their
region/nation. 2. Students committed to
reproduce. 3. Teaching facilities tools
(marker board, Overhead projector?) 4. Housing
food for students. (If financially possible) 5.
Translate materials for successive
generations. 6. Management of successive
generations to finish the plan.
36
Step Five
Church makes commitment and begins the training
process. The result is usually leveraged by a
factor of 5 to 20 times.
37
Example of Training Strategy for Strategic
Partnership
1. Start with an appropriate number of




training centers with a ratio of 1
trainer to 20



pastors. 2. Insist on 100
commitment to reproduce, but



plan on
only 20. 3. 1 generation 3 years. Courses
are 4 - 6 months apart.

LEADERSHIP
  • Any movement that has benefited society in the
    long haul has had at its core a group of people
    who were committed to a cause they considered
    greater than themselves, and to each other as
    friends.

- James MacGregor Burns
