This book represents the accumulated wisdom of nearly two decades of Church Planting Movementsâ€™ best practices from around the world. The T4T, or Training for Trainers, movement is the most explosive and fruitful Church Planting Movement that we have ever seen. Since its inception in 2001, the T4T movement has seen more than 1.7 million baptisms and more than 130,000 new church starts. Truly we have never seen anything quite like this movement that is now influencing other mission efforts throughout the world. With Steve Smith and Ying Kai's help, we are now given an insider's look at how and why this movement is multiplying so rapidly.
In 2001, the Southern Baptist International Mission Board began tracking an Asiaâ€“based Church Planting Movement, a rapid multiplication of new church starts, that exceeded anything they had witnessed in the organization's 156â€“year history. In the decade that followed, the movement accelerated producing tens of thousands of new churches and hundreds of thousands of new baptized believers. By the end of the decade, this movement of God had seen 1.7 million baptisms and 150,000 new church starts.
Ying Kai and his wife Grace, Chineseâ€“American Southern Baptist missionaries, developed the outreach and church planting program that they called Training for Trainers or T4T as a means of addressing the overwhelming challenge of an unreached people group numbering tens of millions of lost souls. Rather than simply doing evangelism, or discipleship, or church planting, the Kais felt led of God to train multiplying generations of national partners who in turn would train generations of the same.
In T4T: A Discipleship Reâ€“Revolution fellowâ€“Baptist missionary and author Steve Smith captures the story, principles, and spirit of Ying Kai's T4T. In this engaging 350â€“page book, Smith describes how God is at work in the fastest growing churchâ€“planting movement in the world today, and how its principles can be applied in your own ministry. T4T has already proven itself by adapting well to many other ministries, infusing them with reproducibility that enhances rather than competes with their own distinctive kingdom contribution.
Built on New Testament kingdom principles, T4T integrates evangelism, discipleship, church planting, and leadership development in a seamless process that has proven effective in multiplying new communities of faith. Though T4T was born in Asia, it is now bearing fruit in the U.S., as practitioners in Texas, Indiana, North Carolina and other states report multiplying generations of new believers, disciples and church starts.
