Equipping and Training – Preparation for World Mission and Reaping a Harvest
“Training for Harvest” is and interactive workbook designed to recruit, equip and train men and women for Kingdom ministry assignments around the world. The manual is designed as a training tool for anyone who has answered the call to become a part of a team dedicated to reaping the harvest of nations around the world. Participants will receive a clear sense of purpose and destiny, experience transformation, know intimacy with Jesus, grow in their faith, and access the resources of heaven for ministering signs, wonders, and miracles.
The book is made of 16 sessions, topical lessons, exploring who God is, who you are, and the components of your assignment. Each session contains:
- A Session Summary
- Main Concepts from the Session
- Devotional Challenges with in depth reflective questions
The main concept studied in each session builds in a progression of foundational truths, for example: An introduction to Jesus, the centrality of the cross, friendship with God, and God’s sovereignty.
Part Two includes our identity, overshadowed by God’s presence, the results of a yielded life and true holiness. Part Three looks what it means to appropriate Christ; find God’s will and direction, and commitment. Part Four looks at mission basics: Cultural assimilation, language learning, and dealing with culture shock.
