Change the world around you.
The transformation of the Gospel has five priorities for every believer.
Heal The Sick. Cast Out Demons. Raise The Dead. Baptize… Disciple Nations.
Are you a medical professional or feel called as a justice advocate? Maybe a long term missionary? Do you have a desire to see the school your children go to actually adopt a philosophy that betters the student's experience? Do you feel stuck in your desire to see cities transformed and don’t want to be a politician? Maybe you just want to love your neighborhood better? Are you an influencer that worked hard for your influence but now don’t know what to do with that influence? Has your successful business created a platform for social change but you don't know what real change for a business looks like? Do you feel called to bring Heaven to Earth in your sphere of influence? Personal development is necessary for you to have the impact that you and our Father in Heaven dreams about.
This opportunity is for you.
STUDY ABROAD EXPERIENCE
*8 days in the Caribbean with trainers from all over the world.
*Innovative learning format will include a dynamic classroom experience, community discussion, interaction with real life problems, and a spiritual atmosphere that fosters a deepened connection to both God and your purpose.
Our partners are an innovators in building nations to be sustainable without the dependance of the helping hand in the future. They are doing that through medicine, education, religion, government, family, and business. This experience will not only help us learn how to be a good partner with organizations, but will also teach us how to approach helping other cities and cultures around us in the days to come.
On this specific trip, we will have four main priorities:
1. To serve others: through medical programs, feeding Haitians, and participating in various community projects with local Haitians as our guide.
2. Learn from international leaders how to solve big problems.
3. Make disciples: by sharing the gospel and connecting locals with churches in their communities.
4. Help transform a nation.
WHY DO YOU NEED THIS TRAINING?
Discipling Nations is one of the most outrageous priorities in Jesus’ command of transforming the world. Christians are notorious for having generous hearts and pure motivations, but we haven’t always made ourselves ready personally to handle the weight of the call to disciple nations. For decades we’ve interpreted this command as taking a team on a one week trip with bright colored t-shirts to show people how Americans interpret the Bible. These groups went to help, but often created as much confusion as they did help. The same incompleteness can be said for our local strategy as well, as we “only invite people to church”. In most cases this implies that it’s not my job to disciple, it’s the church organization’s job. We need to learn how to serve the most difficult problems in the world and if your understanding of the gospel doesn’t fix these problems, you need a new understanding of the gospel.
Sustainable impact of people groups requires a long-term commitment of helping people be the best version of who God made THEM to be, not the best version of what I prefer as a westerner. Your calling deserves this investment and we can get you ready.
Top Ten Biggest Mindset Challenges to Discipling Nations:
“Nations” means land with borders - and this poses overwhelming challenges for one person.
Our effort is an event rather than relationship.
“It’s someone else’s job who is more spiritual.”
We don’t know our purpose.
“Is it God’s will for me to disciple people?”
The idea is overwhelming and ambiguous. I don’t know where to start.
Our way is the best and transformation should look like what we know.
“All solutions should be logical” thus not accounting for the supernatural priority within the Gospel experienced.
We have a small world view of what’s possible in the Gospel, believing that 5 minute prayers and large scale gatherings are the complete solution.
