The Great Commission Church Goes on Disciple Making Teams.
There are two disciple making teams; Local and Global. The Local Teams are a prerequisite to Global Teams.
- The tools for Local Go teams are contained in Steps 1 and 2.
- One training tool for Local Teams is Tool Box. A six week, scripted training event for those who desire a packaged tool.
- The outcome for Local Disciple Teams is making disciples with anyone, anywhere at anytime.
- The focus of Local Teams are the unchurched.
- The core value of Local Teams is modeling and coaching. Training involves showing people how to apply the tools (modeling) and encouraging them to keep doing it until it's a part of their lifestyle (coaching).
“While many are familiar with the 1040 Window, surprisingly few have heard of another...group of people living in a zone called the 925 Window. The 925 Window is the window of opportunity that most believers have from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day, to be salt and light in an unbelieving world. It is a natural window of opportunity that allows us to enter the ordinary world of people that Jesus came to seek and save. — Dale Losch
- The strategy and tools for Global Teams are contained in Steps 3 and 4.
- The key tool for Global Disciple making are PODs.
- The outcome for Global Teams is to become SOGY (Support Others or Go Yourself).
- The focus of Global Teams are unreached peoples. Unreached peoples should be the great burden of the church today.
- As David Platt states, when it comes to fulfilling the global aspect of the Great Commission in the business context the options often boil down to two choices; leave or leverage. Leaving means going to an unreached people group. Leveraging means using the resources of a business to bring the gospel to an unreached people group. This may include relocating or staying and/or sharing the gospel with and through employees. The options are endless.
