[Please note.  All training sessions follow the same format: Experience, Discovery, and Connection.  First is an experience to help one set their heart, then new information to study, and finally the life connection to put into practice so one is prepared to teach others. This training format for leaders is the same format used for training children in GameLife 1-2-3.  1. Game Experience, 2 Bible Discoveries, and 3 Life Connections. These training principles are based on Ezra 7:10.]

1. Experience: Heart Preparation


    • Prayer of Yielding My Will “Whatever It Takes”

    • Question: Do you know how to make disciples or plant a church? 

    • Memorize the Story: Mango Orchard (illustrates “Four Fields”)

    • Verse & Truth

      • “And he was teaching them many things in parables, and in his teachings, he said to them: 3 “Listen! Behold, a sower went out to sow. 4 And as he sowed, some seed fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured it. 5 Other seed fell on rocky ground, where it did not have much soil, and immediately it sprang up, since it had no depth of soil. 6 And when the sun rose, it was scorched, and since it had no root, it withered away. 7 Other seed fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked it, and it yielded no grain. 8 And other seeds fell into good soil and produced grain, growing up and increasing and yielding thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold.” 9 And he said, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”
        Mark 4:2-9 (emphasis added).
