4 How and why do these teams grow a church? Let’s start with a model or diagram– a river of humanity flowing down to destruction.But all along this river are “Fishers of Men”-Churches reaching the lost out of thisriver.1 problem we cannot use hooks??
6 Each of these inverted funnels represent churches trying to fish for souls out of this river of humanity.There are all different types and colors but the ones that grow large are doing it better!What are they doing ? Using teams of fishermen not just one fisherman.There are 7 teams that make achurch successful:
7 THE 3 ESSENTIALSB (believe and worship) A (at all costs C (connect and reach the lost) serve)
8 These 3 essential make up a pyramid for churches to be successful These 3 essential make up a pyramid for churches to be successful. A)Reach the lost,B)Worship and Believe) and C) Serve through connection groups.ANDThere are 7 connection groups or teamsto help use do these 3 essentials
9 7th Team 6th Team 5th Team 4th Team 3rd Team 2nd Team 1st Team Disciples7th Team6th Team5th Team4th Team3rd Team2nd Team1st Team
11 These teams need to be structured Biblically: so we use the Ephesians 4 model. People need to be plugged into ministry according to their Gifts and passion (area or ministry they enjoy doing).The following chart shows how theEphesians 4 model works (NOTE:the numbering and order of teamsChanges from 1st year to 2nd)
13 The following blank chart is what each church should fill out for the teams in their churches (2x3 foot erasable chart is available for $50).The “Fishers of Men” order of teams is different from the order we used to get 24 to Double started.
21 The key to growing this church… Everyone discovers their gifts and passionEveryone signs up for a team of their choice and passionEveryone is trained and helped to use the gift God has given themEveryone helps you reach your family and friends
22 BRING YOUR OUTREACH TEAM next month to WHEN DO WE START TRAINING????Next monthBRING YOUR OUTREACH TEAM next month tothis training.
23 The goal of OUTREACH is to have every family pray for God to help them bring another family to the church whom we can disciple.“Go into all the world and make disciples,” is the mandate from Jesus.
24 A true disciple brings someone to Jesus 1 Family = = FamiliesDiscipleA true disciple brings someone to Jesus(Andrew –Peter, etc)We will help you do this over 12 months
25 SUMMARY OF MONTH 14We looked at how to become churches who are “Fishers of men”.We saw it took 7 teams to actively fish souls from the river of humanity.These 7 teams are in the order so as to “fish for men” and take them through into becoming disciples of Jesus Christ.Finally we realized Paul in Ephesians 4, shows us how to structure church leadership in a 5-fold model that proves to be not only Biblical but the most successful way of structuring the church.As a church we not only need to have these 7teams put into place in the next 12 months but weneed to structure them according to theEphesian 5-Fold model of leadership.
