Three Circles Training - November 11

Three Circles Training
Sunday November 11, 1030-1130 at Grace Church in Morton

Learn how to share the Gospel, how to move any conversation toward the Gospel, and three ways people could respond (and what you should do with each of them.)

Why do you need this training?
Yesterday I was out at ISU with some friends. I felt led to stop and chat with a student who was sitting outside the post office. I shared the Gospel with him and left him the opportunity to follow up with me if he wanted to do a Bible Study or meet for discipleship.

If I saw him again I could call him by name, ask about his mom's health and find out if he had connected with a church yet. If found all that out in 10 minutes.

I used to think it would take 10 years to get that deep with someone. I was wrong. I needed some training. Now that I've had it I'd love to train you.

If you're interested but can't make this day and time, let me know and we'll get something scheduled!

How much lostness is in my area?

Sometimes (oftentimes) we get into our life-bubble and let the days, weeks and months pass without stopping to look around.  One way I keep myself centered on our task to share the Gospel and make disciples is making sure I have a realistic picture of lostness.

How many people do not have a personal saving relationship with Jesus Christ in my area?

Here's a tool to help you figure that out on your own.

If you calculate the lostness in your area, please send me the link or post a comment to the spreadsheet you created.

Trainings List

Practical trainings to equip believers to bring the Gospel to the lost until there is #NoPlaceLeft. Contact me if you're interested.

Quick Trainings (1-1.5 hours each) 

  • 3 Circles: Equip anyone to share the Gospel, including 3 questions to move any conversation to the Gospel and 3 responses you could get and what to do next 
  • 411: Answers 4 questions on 1 piece of paper in 1 hour: Why do we make disciples? Who do we reach? What do we say? When will we do it? 
Gospel Conversation Training (Event Training: 4-6 Hours)

  • Includes the 3 Circles and 411 
  • Plus vision casting, follow up tools, and time in the harvest 
  • Note: Best case scenario is scheduling 3 of these within a year and pairing them with a weekly rollout below. 
Weekly Rollout - The best way to change the DNA of a church or group is to make it a regular part of the culture: ie. “This is what it means to follow Jesus.”

  • Disciple-Making Practicum | 2 hours a week/ about 6 months | 10 Tools to follow Jesus, share the Gospel, and disciple others to do the same. 
  • Church-Planting Residency | 7 hours a week/ 2-3 years | Equip and mobilize catalytic leaders to make disciples who make disciples and start churches who start churches to the 4th generation and beyond and train others to do the same locally and/or globally (Please note the link template document, not a specific plan) 
  • Training Church | 4 hours a week/1-2years | For families/couples/singles that are able to step back from their weekly church commitments and meet twice each week: once for training, once for harvest time. 
Local Short Term “Missions” Trip

  • Include a Gospel Conversation Training as part of a local outreach. 
  • We can train for a trip you’re already doing or help you find a neighborhood to serve in your area.
