We must focus most of our resources on the discipling and training of these leaders, who will in turn repeat the process until growing, witnessing churches are multiplied across the continent. We believe that, especially in the early stages, leaders are best developed in the context in which they will minister.
We emphasize smaller, highly contextualized, local training programs which provide theological education as an essential part of the larger process of leadership development. We believe that while Biblical leadership requires knowledge and skills, it is ultimately based on character. We believe that there is no substitute for relationships in developing character.
We are committed to structured discipleship models which faithfully and effectively impart knowledge of the Bible while facilitating teacher-disciple relationships in the context of life and ministry.
