Coaching Pioneer Church Planters: Reproducibility, by Jeannette SlaterJul 3rd, 2009 | By MCC Moderator | Category: Missions Coaching - Guest Posts
An important principle in pioneer church planting is reproducibility. Missionaries coming in may bring with them methods, techniques, resources, or equipment that can facilitate the starting of a new church. However if the local culture cannot support these long-term, the missionary is not demonstrating a reproducible way of starting new churches. The result is that one church may get established but that church will not continue to reproduce.
- What methods are you using that are effective?
- How reproducible are those methods within that culture?
- What might you do differently so that the local leaders you are raising up will be able to replicate and pass on what their learning to the next generation of leaders?
