In addition to providing discipleship resources, equipping churches and individuals to use them well is an important part of our work. We believe that it is important to understand the method behind the course to use the materials most effectively.
Training will equip you to:
- understand the course design and method of Come Follow Me
- lead group discussion using the Advisor Guide
- plan to start a course in your area.
- start understanding cultural issues for believers of Muslim Background
There are three ways you can access Advisor training:
1. Live Workshop
We provide live training through one day workshops for Come Follow Me Advisors. Live workshops are now available in a number of countries worldwide and are being translated into local languages.
We believe that the face to face interaction adds a valuable extra dimension to the training. Please contact us to see if there are CFM Facilitators running Advisor Training in your country, area or language.
2. Online Video Training Resource for small groups
The CFM Online Video Training Resource for small groups is now available, making Advisor training widely accessible. You can host a Come Follow Me Advisor Training for 4 to 6 people in your home. We are hoping that this will enable more churches and individuals to prepare well before running CFM, and anticipate that it will be especially valuable in situations where a live workshop is not possible.
The resource is a replica of the one day workshop, offered in four separate sessions. All the teaching and information is online in the form of video clips and information or questions for students to interact with. It simply requires someone to host it - to gather people together, print off a few handouts and set up a computer or screen with internet access to the Advisor training resource.
3. Zoom-based Online Advisor Training
During 2020-21 we developed a Zoom-based Online Advisor Training. This makes CFM Advisor Training accessible to individuals not just groups, and opens up the possibility of training people in different nations at the same time.
