What makes T4T different?
As its name implies Training for Trainers, T4T, is all about training. Its goal is to train believers who can train others in a very simple yet effective method of evangelism and discipleship. The goal of the training is to establish rapidly reproducing churches and groups of disciples across relationship networks.
Do you not say, ‘Four months more and then the harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. Even now the reaper draws his wages, even now he harvests the crop for eternal life…. (John 4:35-36 NIV)
In many ways T4T is a direct response to these words of Jesus. Its central focus is the harvest that God has already prepared and that is already waiting to be harvested. In that sense, T4T is very different from approaches that focus more on sowing and developing relationships so the Gospel can be eventually shared and received. Because of this difference, T4T has the potential to fuel a much more rapid rate of evangelism and church planting. In the end, both sowing and reaping are necessary, but T4T is especially designed for rapid reaping and gaining momentum.
