Our seventh question is:How will the house/simple church networks train and send missionaries (apostolic teams) to the field?
This question focuses on training. How are we going to train this new “army” of missionaries, apostolic teams, to take the gospel to places that are nothing like home, and the people have a different way to view life and their world?
These fields are in areas where there are no Christians, no churches, no support systems like we have at home. This is one of the reasons house/simple church folks are so well equipped to go to these areas – they dependence is not on an institution but they have been discipled to be self feeding and to have a personal intimacy with Jesus. So how do we train beyond normal discipleship?
What about cross-cultural training?
Understanding methodologies and the dangers of foreign influence rather than Kingdom of God influence?
Let’s talk about it – what are your thoughts?
