Unit 1, Issue 2:
Read Philippians and think about:
What establishing issues does Paul include in his letter?
Why did he include these issues?
What does he say about these issues? In other words, what instruction does he give them?
What issues are similar/dissimilar to today's generation?
How should this letter be used by the church in our generation to establish disciples?
PAULINE COURSE RESOURCES:
Leadership Series I:
Submit Acts Course Competencies (Unit 1-5) to the BILD Cloud for review.
Summary of the Acts Course
We studied how to use the book of Acts, a historical book, in today's twenty-first century church.
We did an extensive study of the keys to the establishment and expansion of the first-century church. ( I have included my Competency Project for unit 1 for your review as we will be using it as a guide in our ministry planning.)
We studied that the Great Commission is more than merely telling people about Jesus and making new believers, but included the entirety of telling people about Jesus, baptizing them, teaching them to observe all that Jesus commanded and multiplying Churches upon the earth.
We did a deep dive into understanding that the Local Church has been commissioned by God to be the primary worker of fulfilling the Great Commission. Thus, Abundant Grace should not just be multiplying believers, but should be multiplying believers and gathering them into new churches.
Our vision is to see an entire network of churches gathered together on Sunday morning for the worship and the equipping of the saints.
We learned that all Christians should be involved in missionary work at some level. This makes perfect sense since a local church is a gospel community on mission together.
We studied the apostle Paul's missionary strategy called the Pauline Cycle, which included 10 steps or activities. These steps help us to understand the scope of how we define and view the Great Commission.
We learned that local churches are God's choice for the Great Commission and therefore it is the local churches that hold the primary authority upon the earth to accomplish the Great Commission.
We learned that para-church ministries such as missionary agencies, evangelistic agencies, etc. should be structured in such a way as to assist and serve the local church. They should not operate separately, independently, or in competition for resources with local churches.
We studied that it is an ideal situation for local churches to develop extensive kingdom-relationships with many other local churches and para-church ministries to accomplish the Great Commission as a large, unified team.
In this unit, we put the pieces of the first four units together to create a missions strategy for a local church.
We listed and created guidelines that every church could use to keep their missions plans both biblical and effective.

Each student should prepare their testimony (story) of how they came to meet Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Ideally, the testimony will include what life was like before Jesus, how Jesus impacted you, and what changes have personally taken place in your life from following Jesus. (Please highlight any memorable event such as healing, deliverance, relationship restoration, breaking of bad habits, etc.)
Becoming a sound and matured leader for Jesus doesn't happen overnight. It is a patient process that takes time. Just ask Moses, and Joshua, David, and Paul! Nevertheless, there is an undeniable lifestyle of action that builds momentum in a person life toward leadership! Motivational Challenges are all option things that can help inspire and move us into action to develop things in our lives so we can become better servants of God!
THE COLD SHOWER CHALLENGE
It's time to break out of our comfort zone physically! Take a 60 second cold shower to develop discipline in your mind and body!
THE STREET TALK CHALLENGE
Walk up to at least one person per day for 7 days straight and ask them if you can pray for them. You're going to be surprised of how many people will say "yes"!
THE SILENCE CHALLENGE
Commit to sitting in silence with the Lord for 15 minutes per day for 7 days straight! No radio, no TV, no internet. Just you and Jesus! If 15 minutes is too short go for 30 minutes. Get ready for the Lord's voice to speak!

The Teaching Practicum is all about learning by teaching the concepts and ideas that you've been studying. This practicum does not require you teach a formal class, but asks that you teach it in some form to a person or a group of people. The idea is to further master the material through the process of instructing others!
Speak with Pastor Steve about designing your teaching practicum!
Ministry Practicum is a vital part of the EveryHouse School of Leadership because the most effective form of learning is "Learning Through Experience!". Download the Ministry Practicum Manual and let Pastor Steve know when you are ready to move forward with the creation of your first Ministry Practicum!
