The two highest value activities when working towards a Church Planting Movement are sharing the gospel and training disciple makers. Last night we trained a new partnering church to share the gospel. Trainers solidify their skills in the process of training others. It also finds the faithful people – those who take the training and put it to use.
Right after we finished training at this church, I found out that one of our students was leading the same training at his home church 20 minutes away. He has helped us train before, and he has the skills to train on his own or with his own team. This was a clear reminder of the multiplicative potential of training. We train, but the big win is training trainers.
