week, we introduced you to Train & Multiply. This church multiplication
method has been used in amazing ways to advance the kingdom of God.
how exactly does T&M work?
important distinction between T&M and other discipleship programs is its
emphasis on leadership development. While the 64 booklets include resources on
evangelism and discipleship, its strength lies in the development of healthy,
well-equipped leaders, who are essential to a church multiplication movement.
Without solid leadership to guide new church plants, multiplication will be
slow and ineffective.
is an illustration of the Train & Multiply process:
rail is labeled “pastoral work.” Every person involved in T&M is also
involved in some form of ministry. It might be a simple church, a small group,
or simply working with their family and friends. They have some place to
immediately apply what they are learning. T&M is not training for ministry, it is training in ministry.
second rail is labeled “home study.” A T&M participant learns through weekly
study of God’s Word, the T&M pastoral worker training booklets, and
practical experience. T&M booklets are simple and practical biblical
training guides. They are easily accessible. They can be used anywhere, at any
time, with any number of people. And they only cost what it takes to print
what ties this all together are the railroad ties labeled “meeting with
trainer.” Each T&M participant has a trainer who provides coaching and
mentoring. Meeting biweekly or monthly, this trainer guides the participant
through the leadership development process. They help the student plant their
pastoral work and choose what to study. The trainer also encourages and holds
the participant accountable.

What might happen if we could mobilize
ordinary people to go into the great harvest fields at our doorsteps and start
church multiplication movements?
In 2013, by the grace of God and through the
ministry of One Mission Society, ordinary people did an extraordinary thing –
they started more than 19,500 worshiping groups. They did this by being
empowered by the Holy Spirit and by being equipped with a simple tool – Train
& Multiply (T&M).
So just what is Train & Multiply?
Train & Multiply is a comprehensive
leadership development program to help start and organize reproducing local
churches, which can lead to a church multiplication movement.
It starts slow, with just a few people, but
builds into a rapidly multiplying movement of disciples, leaders, and churches.
In one-on-one or small group settings, motivated believers learn how to share
their faith, how to disciple new believers, and how to gather those new
disciples into healthy, growing churches. These disciples and churches then
multiply themselves through 2
nd, 3rd, 4th, and
th generations. And in the process, the disciples learn how to
become strong, effective leaders.
T&M is a unique, menu-based leadership
training/coaching approach that provides simple, easy-to-understand biblical
training guides to equip ordinary Christians to start multiplying movements of
disciples, churches, and leaders.
In the next five years (2015-2020), the goal
is to start 414,000 new worshiping groups with the use of Train & Multiply.
We credit a very simple truth with the
success of T&M:
ordinary people can
do extraordinary things when they are empowered by the Holy Spirit and equipped
with the right tools
NOTE: Watch for exciting stories of lives
being transformed through this powerful tool throughout the month of April.
