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.

When plant a church, you are venturing into a new world. It often means leaving behind settled routines and friendships, embracing change and it can be quite lonely. These impacts are not only felt by planter themselves but the whole family. In this course we start to unpick what church planting means for your marriage and for your kids as you step out together on this adventure with God.

Church planting can be tough, and one of the things that keeps us going through the hard times is a sense that we are doing is not merely a good human initiative, but something that God has called us to do.  In this course we explore the topic of calling, looking first at what the Bible means when it talks about calling, and then exploring how can discern whether or not we are being called to church planting and what difference this makes.

One of the first and biggest challenges faced by a church planter is gathering a team. This marks the transition from a private vision of what you think calling you to do to the start of a church being birthed. Can you find others who will buy into the vision and join you on the journey? In this course we start to look at how you build this team and what kind of people you want to recruit to it.

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.

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.

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.

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).
