This is a slightly edited repost from Steve Addison’s blog, Movements.net –
Jeff Sundell said that in Nepal he kept the “new horses” from the “old horses” to protect new believers from the unhelpful habits and traditions of older “churched” believers.
Two works emerged at the same time; one separate from existing church structures and one within. The work within church structures grew from 27 – 127 churches in six years. The work outside and separate from existing church structures grew from 0 – 58,000 churches in the same six year period.
The key leader of that movement was a national church planter that Jeff was able to train because the leader of the church organisation of which he was part judged him as the “greatest problem person”. Jeff took this man and trained him and it was through him that the CPM grew.
