Explain by going over the information in Local Disciple making. Tailor the explanation to your audience. A quick overview of the bold print may be appropriate for some, while a more detailed read through may be necessary for others.
2. Model Model by finding a place and time to show your disciples how to Tell and Teach. Often this involves a separate meeting from the weekly bible study with a larger group.
Model progressively by using a three step process for each step of training. First, you do it while they watch. Second, they do it while you watch. Third, they do it. People experience the "now I get it" moment as they see the tools modeled. Understanding occurs as the tools are demonstrated, not just described. Debrief after each step to determine when they are ready to move to the next step. Repeat each step until they are ready to progress to the next one. It probably won’t happen after just one attempt. Ideally, this takes place in a live setting (campus, mall, cafè) however it can be taught in a home setting. Watch Real Disciple-makers.
Coach by holding regular "review and assist" meetings. Coaching meetings are essential. They are the encouragement students need to build a lifestyle of disciple making.
Regular meetings. As disciples mature and engage in multiplication they will not need to meet weekly. Initially weekly meeting can shift to once a month meetings. Eventually they'll move to "as needed" meetings. But there will always be the need to stay in touch.
Review and Assist. Review The Big Picture and assist wherever needed. Ask, "What is your next step and how can I help?" and be ready to jump in wherever needed. Sometimes it will reviewing a tool previously taught, other times it will be modeling elements of Tell, Teach and Train.
The Big Picture. A thousand foot view of the entire disciple making process. It provides perspective and serves as a roadmap for multiplication.
