Created to learn

Learning is a gift of God, developed through training opportunities and worked out through timeless repetitions. Each one of you come from a different learning background. Do you feel it is easy to grasp new information, new thoughts and to get deeply into the mystery of the Gospel of God? This course touches the special privilege of learning about God and how He has revealed Himself in the Holy Scriptures. God teaches us even about how to know Himself and His Saviour Jesus Christ. For learning about HIM and learning from Christ, God the creator set up principles of the memory and the way of understanding as He created the human mind.

We want to understand ourselves to use our mind more effectively. God has given us the instrument of logic into our brains as the means to understand truthfully. The Holy Scriptures are using logic to communicate truth to us.

We learn God`s communication by an introduction into the logic of the letter to the Romans. The course closes with looking at you, the learner. You will be provided with some practical helps for an individually adapted way of remembering and understanding. This course prepares you and supports you in your further studies. As more you understand how you are learning, the more you start to get into the science of teaching yourself.

Classical Church Planting

In this course Dr. Beck works through the classical or traditional way most denominations in the western hemisphere plant churches but adds some key insights and practices he has learned from his years of association with leading church planters and such church planting networks like City To City, City Mentoring Program, and now mosaiXmultiply. Dr. Beck takes the student through the phases of church planting and the various aspects of each of the phases to build an easy-to-follow, practical, step-by-step approach. Many church planting training programs give aspiring church planters helpful principles to go by. Dr. Beck uses a so-called "church planting globe" to not only give you a clear overview of all the steps to be taken, but very detailed instructions and advice for each step, all the way to reaching the first of two goals of church planting: installing your first elders (the second goal is multiplying your church plant into another church plant, but that is CP7). In doing so, he is careful to consider that every church plant has its own unique context and that no one way of doing things fits everywhere. The church planting student will want to take all the principles, steps and detailed advice in this course and apply them to his own context. (Note: how to contextualize is the major focus of CP4). You will be equipped with the proper tools needed to continue your journey on planting a classical church that has a multilocational mindset.

Discovery Group Basics

This course will provide you the tools needed in starting a discovery group that has a mindset of multiplication.  A discovery group is made mostly of non-believing individuals but led by a few dedicated believers in Jesus.  In many parts of the world and amongst many different cultures, churches have been started in this organic way.  Meaning there was no major raising of funds, securing of a building or hiring of an ordained pastor before the actual church community was started.  Instead, a disciple making group was created.

In this course, two highly experienced and knowledgeable church trainers, Stephen Beck and Theo Visser, team up to show you how this is done.  Theo Visser takes you through the various steps you take to multiply your Discovery Group into a second one, then into several disciple making groups, and ultimately into a worshipping congregation whose focus is on the reaching the community around it.   He shares how discipleship and leadership training happens in these small groups. 

In this organic approach, rapid multiplication of disciples, small groups and congregations is the vision Dr. Beck's contribution in this course.  He will introduce you to the concept of a Discovery Group for non-Christians.  His training manual gives you all the information and creative ideas you need to start a Discovery Group.  In addition, he will give you helpful advice out of his own experience how to lead a multi-cultural Discovery Group.  Once completed, you will be ready to start a multi-cultural Discovery Group.

Contextualization & Methods

This course about contextualization and models for starting a multi-cultural community centred around Jesus is one of the most overlooked subjects in the area of congregation multiplication. The course begins with the definition of contextualization and finds in the Bible the guidelines for practicing it in the work of the Kingdom of God. You will learn the theory of contextualizing and you will be given practical tools. You will understand how the Gospel is designed to be contextualized and how you can adapt it to your own situation.

Not everything that Dr. Stephen Beck is teaching in this course is going to fit perfectly to your situation.   However, listen and absorb the principles, then contextualize the teaching to your area, situation, culture, and language.  Seek advice and guidance from God and His Word.  Turn to locals in your community in whom you trust or expand your network as described in the teaching to strengthen your confidence in progressing your work.  If God sent you, He would lead you!
