Wanted: Church planting coaches

Mar 2007    

IF YOUR love for the Lord has created a burden within you to share the Good News of His Kingdom with others … If your daily walk with the Lord is transforming you to become more like Christ …

If you are leading or participating in a Bible study group, a small group, a discipleship group, an Alpha group or a care group and are being blessed by it …

If you are able to travel at least once a year for the next three years for at least four days …

Then please consider being trained to become part of a church planting team of coaches.

This is the burden that the Lord has laid on me for the next few years. I am currently developing a very simple and basic church planting training manual (about 1,000 pages) which is aimed at equipping pastors who have difficulty reading to grow their church to the point where it has the joy of planting another church! I would like to put this material into your hands and train you to use it!

The main method of instruction will be a coaching model which relies heavily on asking questions, memory work, and story telling.

Imagine a village pastor in Thailand being visited by two or three persons for three days, three times a year over a period of three years. These persons sit and listen to his struggles, help him find solutions and plan for the next few months until their next visit. What an encouragement that will be to the village pastor and his church!

If you are interested, please call me at 6478-4818 or email mms@methodist.org.sg

The Rev Dr Norman Wong is the Executive Director of the Methodist Missions Society.
