Want your ministry to have a lasting impact? The best way to leave a legacy is to equip others to leave their own.
Leaders want to change lives, and the best leaders know that a truly effective ministry must train its members to become leaders themselves. After all, God's people want to change lives too -- but we are all tired of approaches that promise much and deliver little. We are ready for an equipping ministry that is comprehensive, easy to implement, and relationship-oriented; not program-focused.
The 4E Ministry Training Strategy, tested in hundreds of churches already, is a best-practice tool for empowering God's people to make disciples. Here is the 21st-century manual for a Christ-centered, church-based, comprehensive, compassionate, and culturally informed mobilization of the priesthood of all believers, enabling the body of Christ to change lives. So launch a revolution in one-another disciple-making, and make your church into a place not simply with biblical counseling, but of biblical counseling.
