HEALTHY WORD - Understanding and Communicating the Bible. It is foundational for pastors and leaders to handle accurately the Word of Truth in shepherding the flock of God. Healthy Word is focused training leaders in basic Biblical interpretative principles to help them learn how to better understand and communicate the Bible with clarity and accuracy.
Tool: Understanding and Communicating the Bible – training principle mentors in Jonah (O.T.) and 2 Timothy (N.T.) with 8 key interpretive principles. These seminars are being currently developed and initially integrated to the Network with the leadership of North Hills Community Church and Leadership Resources.
HEALTHY MARRIAGE - Just Say the Word (ie. Solo Ora Con La Palabra). A healthy marriage is the core of the family; and healthy families are central to the church. Solo Ora Con La Palabra is a message and model calling Christian husbands to pray more intentionally and more regularly with their wives using the Bible as a guide for their prayers.
Tool: Solo Ora Con La Palabra is the Spanish translation of Sam Ingrassia’s book ‘Just Say The Word’. We are intentionally providing this tool to the Mentor Network pastors and leaders. We are also bringing this tool to Colombian national awareness through the official endorsement of CEDECOL (Confederation of Evangelicals in Colombia).
HEALTHY DISCIPLESHIP GROUPS - Yo Soy Segundo (I am Second). Calling Christians to live radical lives under the priority and primacy of God’s command to love Him with all their heart, soul, mind and strength. I am Second is a small groups model to train for intentional evangelism, basic discipleship, conserving the harvest, and new church establishing.
Tool: E3 Partners 4-Fields Training manual (Disciples Making Disciples) and Yo Soy Segundo Training materials are used to equip believers in an intentional and personal path for participating in disciple making ministry.
4-Fields Disciple Making & Church Planting Approach:
Field 1: Empty Field – Start with Friends and Family / House of Peace / Go & Pray
Field 2: Seeded Field – Sow the Reproducing Gospel
Field 3. Growing Field – Multiply Disciples in Small Groups
Field 4: Harvest Field – Become a Church
HEALTHY COMMUNITY - Community Transformation. Built upon Jesus’ command to ‘love your neighbor’ local churches are awakened to engage their local communities with relevant projects to enhance the dignity and development of the community and its people. The church is called to functionally serve its community as salt and light from God. The church is not an organization designed to escape the community, but an organism designed to mobilize for engaging and impacting its community.
Tool: The Nehemiah Seminar provides guidance for local church leaders to identify, plan and mobilize for serving their communities with the love of God through relevant and meaningful projects using local assets.
