We have created a suite of courses, articles, podcasts, videos, books and live events to train those involved in or exploring church planting, cross-cultural mission, multisite church and other areas of pioneering kingdom ministry. We have brought together a range experienced practitioners and multiplying leaders to impart their experience and expertise, and we have built a platform that puts community right at the heart of your learning.

SCHOOL OF THEOLOGY

INTRODUCTION TO PREACHING

This course is designed for anybody interested in preaching. We look at how to understand a Bible passage, how to turn that understanding into a well written preach and how to deliver that sermon. It is a valuable course for both aspiring preachers and those with considerable pulpit experience.

CHANGE FOR GROWTH

Change management is a pivotal skill for leaders of all levels to develop and to go on developing. In this series of webinars, we particularly focus in on the key moments in the process of change for established church leaders, joined by some special guest coaches and change practitioners.

GOING MULTISITE

Over the last few years, many churches have adopted or considered adopting a multisite model. With this comes big opportunities, but at the same time there are also big challenges. In this course we talk to some multisite leaders about the central questions you may be thinking about as you embark on your multisite journey.

Genesis 1-4 provides us the origin story for the whole Bible and human history. In them we find a blueprint for why things are they way are. Why is the world so good and yet such a mess? What is it that makes humanity unique? Why is our work such a struggle? Where does marriage […]

Sometimes it can feel like following Jesus is getting harder. There can be a pressure to conform to certain cultural ideas, and Christianity doesn’t always fit. This pressure would be very familiar to the Hebrew Christians (probably) in Rome. They lives in a context where worship of the Roman gods was expected from all, with […]

A few years ago, a survey was done about who is considered to be the most influential person to have ever lived, and it will probably come as no surprise that in first place was Jesus Christ. His historical impact has been unparalleled. Kings and rulers have pledged allegiance to him. Schools, universities and hospitals […]

Going... Training Track From the Unreached Network

When you became a follower of Jesus, God drew you into his global mission. God's passion is for his glory to fill the earth as the waters cover the sea and for the gospel to reach all peoples. God chooses ordinary men and women and calls them to partner in this mission. In this module we'll look at calling in scripture, how to know if God is calling you, key aspects of calling and how calling develops, as well as hearing testimonies of how others who are now serving overseas were called by God.

What is the biblical basis and priority of mission? In this module we’ll look at how scripture itself ignites the flame for mission and gives a mandate for the gospel to reach the ends of the earth. Scripture does not give an exact blueprint of how cross-cultural mission is to take place. There will always […]

The Importance of Preparation modules help you think about some of the key things to consider as you prepare to move overseas. These modules are less theologically […]

Preaching God’s word is powerful and effective, and it has been part of church life for the last 2000 years. As we pioneer churches, sites and cross cultures we want to be effective in this. The Bible tells us to rightly handle the word of truth, and in this course we explore what this looks like. We cover the ingredients of a successful sermon, how we rightly understand a Biblical text and how we construct and deliver a talk from what we have learned.

As well as sending out teams and planters to start brand new church plants, a lot of churches are also now planting new sites of their church, and it is common for churches to describe themselves as 'One Church in X Locations'. In other words they are becoming multisite churches. With this comes big opportunities. The pace of planting has rapidly increased as sites have been pioneered. The channels of support for those leading the work are much more developed, and the ownership is shared. At the same time there are big challenges. What things should be held centrally and what should be devolved to the sites? How do you develop systems for leadership, teaching, finance and other areas of church life?  In this course we explore some of these questions to help equip you for your multisite journey.

Our Books

FATHERING LEADERS, MULTIPLYING MISSION (by David Devenish)

A unique book addressing the biblical requirement for apostles and their role in shaping todays church in fathering leaders and motivating mission. One of the sad factors of church life is that many pastors are lonely and their heart cry is for a fathering style of relationship, where they can be cared for pastorally, as well as mentored in the development of gifts and practical skills for their ministry.

MULTIPLANTING (by Colin Baron)

Many church leaders believe that the most effective way to fruitful kingdom ministry is by growing a large church, but what if this big church dream is actually inhibiting us from seeing the quantity and quality of impact that we long for? Over the last twenty-five years of ministry in Manchester, England, Colin Baron has been pioneering a different approach; planting smaller, inter-connected congregations throughout the city that operate together as one church. Strong enough together for each survive and thrive, and yet small and dispersed enough to penetrate into the region in a way that growing one big church would never be able to do. Multiplanting describes the journey Colin, and his team at Christ Church, have been on to fulfil a vision of multiplying church congregations across one region of northern England.

DEMOLISHING STRONGHOLDS (by David Devenish)

David Devenish shares insights drawn from many years of personal experience in helping people break free from strongholds that have bound them. In this no-nonsense guide, he gives us effective strategies for spiritual warfare which include: Having a biblical model for understanding the enemy's strategies and dealing with them. Keeping a balance between the reality of Satan and the demonic realm, our responsibility for our actions, and the absolute sovereignty of God. Understanding that strongholds are wrong thinking, and learning to use Godly power to pull them down. Understanding our authority in Christ. Knowing our weapons and using them.

SUCCESSION OR MULTIPLICATION (by David Devenish)

The issue of leadership succession has become a particular challenge for many fresh movements of churches which started as a result of the faith step of a particular founder, and who are now having to move to the next generation of leadership, whilst maintaining the same demonstration of missional and charismatic life. Several of these new movements have already made the transition to next generation leadership; others are about to do so. Some have done so successfully; others have experienced a measure of conflict and division, but either way it is not an easy transition. David Devenish tells the story of how Newfrontiers tackled this challenge, and how they successfully transitioned to next generation leadership through multiplication of leadership teams rather than appointing a successor, while still maintaining ministry accountability. It sets out both practical lessons that could be used by other movements as they embark on a similar journey, as well as drawing on academic studies of movements within the Christian world.

GLOBAL HUMILITY (by Andy McCullough)

The aspect that needs training, more than any other, in cross-cultural workers, is humility. Pride and mission are polar opposites. Pride pollutes mission but the mission of Christ is humble mission. How dare we turn up with all the answers when we don't even know what questions people are asking? This book should be useful, and provocative, for cross-cultural Christian workers and candidates, for those involved in multicultural cities in their own nations, for sending pastors, and for anyone whose ministry or Christian walk takes them across cultural divides. The book is made up of six sections: Moral Humility, (Thinking About Sin), Public Humility, (Thinking About the World), Semantic Humility, (Thinking About Language), Intercultural Humility, (Thinking About Differences), Incarnational Humility, (Thinking about Mission), and Theological Humility, (Thinking about Thinking).
