THE CHURCH PLANTER PROGRAM.
The Isingiro Church Planter Program.
This Month, 52 church planters were trained through the module 2 training in Isingiro district in south western Uganda. The second module training focuses on teaching the importance of discipleship and imputing practical skills to conduct progressive discipleship, inductive bible study lessons among new believers and being able to teach others, imputing practical experience and skills to prepare discipleship Bible study lessons to spiritually nurture new and growing believers, Church planters gaining skills and understanding for teaching the Word of God person to person or in a group session, Church planters acquiring skills and best practices in follow up.
The second module training program focuses more on equipping the church planter with skills on discipleship on how to disciple the new believer into a mature Christian. In order to do this, the church planters are expected to have evangelized and followed-up new believers, started small groups through which to disciple the new. The church planter training concept is a five module program composed of Evangelism, Discipleship, membership, Leadership and Worship as key church strategy.
