About Us & FAQ
Questions Answered
How can I receive mentoring?
By phone, e-mail, interview or small group meetings if you arrange them.

How much must I pay?
Nothing, unless you are receiving academic credit for it. Mentors donate time joyfully out of love for Christ and his servants, because we find that mentoring for ministry consistently yields excellent results.

When are sessions and how long are they?
For e-mail exchanges, you set the pace. Phone sessions are arranged by you and the mentor, at the convenience of both.

Are the mentors employed by a Christian organization or church?
Some are. They represent a wide variety of denominations and organizations.

Must I be a pastor or missionary to receive mentoring? 
We will coach any believer who desires to serve Christ; we also help seekers and people with personal or family problems.

How do church planters avoid error in new, weak churches when they multiply rapidly?
The really dangerous doctrines that spread and weaken churches have not come from new churches in such movements; they come from sterile churches and old seminaries. Godly mentoring can furnish the backbone of rapid multiplication, thus avoiding false teaching.

What is the difference between a church and a "cell"? 
Although some define a cell otherwise, we consider a healthy cell to be a tiny church within a larger church body. In fields with hostile authorities, they are often house churches that identify with other churches of the area.

God-given DNA to daughter churches and cells.

Train Christian workers by using mentoring 'chains' (2 Timothy
2:2) as well as classroom instruction.

Include menu-based curriculum to enable trainees to choose items that fit current urgent needs of new churches or cells.

Aim to start not merely a church but a spreading movement.

Use methods that are easy to imitate and pass on, and equipment that is available immediately to trainees, to sustain a movement.

Let churches and cells heed the many New Testament 'one another' commands, for interaction and mutual edification.

Practice the 'one another' commands between churches and cells, as well as within them.

Let children participate in a serious way in weekly worship along with adults, briefly acting out Bible stories, and let older children lead and disciple younger ones.
