TRAINING

Discipler training is offered regularly for those who have a desire to share the principles of abiding in Christ with others one on one. The format of training, offered in Hagerstown, MD, with Tim and Karen Lester, is simple.

  1. LECTURES to specifically explain the diagrams that illustrate the principle of abiding as they apply to the individual.
  2. PRACTICE in groups of 2 or 3 to immediately review the diagrams
  3. QUESTIONS to clarify things not yet clear
  4. PRESENTING to a willing “trial disciple” immediately following training
  5. FOLLOW UP with any problem areas discovered in presenting the principles to others with trainers by way of internet

Participants will learn how to administer a Unique Self Test, how to take a history, and then how to use both to disciple others. We offer several specific kinds of discipleship training including individual, marriage, and youth.

Advanced Training #4 “The Napkin Presentation”

This training demonstrates the principles of abiding in a much more condensed form, for when there are no printed diagrams and a relatively short amount of time to share with an individual, such as while on break at Starbucks or at lunch and sharing with an acquaintance while drawing points on the back of a napkin. This module covers as few diagrams as possible while covering the heart of the message of abiding in Christ.
