  5. Facilitator’s Goals continued Discipleship goals - train 6-10 faithful people to be strong in the Lord - identify their gifts and ministries - empower them to be able to minister God’s love and compassion for the poor - become disciplined leaders of joy-filled communities among the urban poor Community transformation goals - seek the welfare of the city - improve the lifestyle of the poor - extend the influence of the kingdom of God - plant churches ( joy filled communities) among the urban poor

  6. Facilitator’s Commitment Either full-time or part-time for at least one year. Each intake lasts for 10 months. Full time will require 30 hours per week Part time will require 8-20 hours per week To be an incarnational example of an urban poor worker To be a disciple maker, mentor and leader To pastor, and encourage the trainees to recruit other faithful people

  7. The physical resources Access to a meeting place for the training of 6-10 persons for a minimum of 5 hours Some drama equipment or props to use in dramas the trainees will create A white board or black board, chalk and pens, and a writing pad and New Testament for each trainee Some books containing cultural stories of the people you are living amongst that will inspire interesting dramas

  8. Discipling by storytelling The Bible is a collection of stories In the early church there was no New Testament Jesus, the disciples and apostles made disciples thru’ stories Their stories were powerful life related stories Select a doctrine or ministry skill you want to teach, and then look for a Biblical story to illustrate it Your life needs to reflect the kingdom values Jesus taught Change your actions to match biblical values

  9. Stories on CD’s The Encarnacao Training Commission will supply CD’s with power points and stories that illustrate truth from different cultures. A Trainers resource CD will be supplied at the Trainers Course that will provide a resource of back up materials for the personal study of the Trainer. This resource is more extensive than the training program. Your role is to facilitate the gathering of trainees in small groups where they learn to develop dramas to illustrate cultural and life related stories and skills for ministering among the urban poor. Encourage application of the stories in the context of the trainees you are training.

  10. Teach the truths of the stories The stories on the CD highlight truths that are important to extending the influence and power of the Kingdom of God among the urban poor. As a facilitator you will teach these truths by encouraging oral presentations, dramatic presentations, prayer and reflection on these truths by the trainees. Plan to help the trainees implement these truths Help the trainees to make up their own stories appropriate to their context and dramatise the stories, and teach biblical truths from them.

  12. Storytelling shapes Biblical values By helping the trainees receive instruction from stories of the Holy Spirit at work bringing the Kingdom of God into the slums, you are able to shape their values Biblical values lead to Kingdom living People living in the Kingdom bring the power of the Kingdom into slum communities God’s welfare for the City is made known by Kingdom people involved in Kingdom actions.

  13. Building Kingdom Communities among the urban poor The goal of training trainers for ministry among the urban poor is to develop a multitude of joy-filled Kingdom communities among the slums of Asia, Africa and Latin America so the Kingdom of God can be experienced in all its fullness by the inhabitants of these slums.

  14. Be accountable to a spiritual mentor while training others to minsiter among the urban poor All “Training (Course) Facilitators” who are coaching trainees in urban poor ministry are required to select a spiritual mentor to whom they will be accountable during the Training program. The mentor will report to the Training Director vital information and verify statistics required by our funders.

  15. Urban Poor Grassroots Trainers Module - Objective Objective: To train urban poor church planting facilitators to utilize the urban poor church planting processes integrated throughout the Encarnacao Alliance. Action Objective: The facilitators will utilize the principles in these modules with grassroots (illiterate and semi-literate) church planters in developing holistic church plants (communites) among the urban poor.

  16. Expected Facilitators’ Outcomes Knowledge/Understand The four seasons of growth, plus the principles of evangelism phase – see chapters 9-10 in “Cry of the Urban Poor” The nature of oral storytelling methods for urban semi-literate contexts – see power points on grass roots trainers training CD. The context of the slum and its effect on the style of church to be planted – see the urban church planting resource CD or the website www.urbanleaders.org The progressions and momentum of small and large group dynamics on each season of growth – see page 172 of “Cry of the Urban Poor”

  17. How to evaluate gifts, values and motives and their effect on own training style and their use in selecting effective recruits. Teach trainees how to recruit trainees The theme and theology of the kingdom of God as it applies to the urban poor The value of holistic interventions in slum communities through preschools, schools, micro finance, & community development. Know how to access the church planting resources on the resource CD provided.

  18. Plan For each season of growth in the experience of the trainees and their evangelism phases And develop an initial pattern of stories that can be used for each season of growth in the evangelism phases among the urban poor And develop own diagram of how to utilize small and large group processes in ministry among the urban poor And develop a facilitator’s plan that is effective in achieving the action outcomes intended for grass roots church planters

  19. Action Outcomes for the grass- roots church planters Facilitators will assist the grass roots church planters to achieve the following action outcomes; Within the first month – mentor them trough the phase they are at (of the Four Seasons p.172 “Cry of the Urban Poor”) by helping them understand the principles of that phase, development of storytelling, and understanding the momentum needed for small or large gatherings.

  20. Within three months; Facilitators will teach grass roots trainers to think ahead about the next phase of the four seasons of growth Facilitators will have taken their trainees to their first citywide training day for urban poor workers Within ten months: The grass roots church planters will have been successful in evangelism, recruitment and the security phase and have planned teaching through storytelling, having developed group structures for the commitment and quality phases (depending on what phase they are at).
