Don’t expect a car to run well if you try to run it in first gear on the open highway! You need to use it in the way it was designed to be used.
It’s the same with adult learning. I designed Come Follow Me to be used in a particular way. For the last thirty years I have seen this method being used fruitfully in many countries. In fact every year about 200,000 Asian Christians are being equipped through this method called TEE.
Here’s how it works:
Learners grow through a powerful combination of three elements:
- first they learn from the course book themselves through active self-study
- then they interact with others in discussion (typically once a week)
- then they put the teaching into practice in the context of their daily lives
It’s not each part separately that make the difference, but all three in combination. Then the cycle is repeated week by week so that learners integrate it in their lives and grow deeper with each other.
So the method is not new. It is tried and tested in many countries. What’s new is to use this method in a course designed specifically for Christ’s followers of Muslim background.
