Overview of Omega Course
I. Philosophy of The Alliances Church Planter Training
II. Values of The Alliances Church Planter Training
The local church is Gods primary method for doing His
Church planting is the most effective tool for discipling
Church planting is the best means for fulfilling the Great
Commission mandate (Matthew 28:18-20).
The work of evangelism lies at the heart of a churchs
life and health.
III. How We Work
Leaders and workers are encouraged to start with the end
in mind (the Z), a discipled nation filled
with healthy, reproducing churches accessible to every man,
woman and child
and to work backwards from there to
accomplish that goal.
Training is balanced with other important components that
make for movement- Prayer that is focused and
intentional (when, who, how?); Goals and Vision (how
many, when); Leadership (who); Research (what
do we need to know?); Resources (inside and outside
of country); Evangelism and Discipleship (building
new communities of believers).
Our approach is diverse- Tent makers can do the job,
and should be the primary work force mobilised for this vision.
The role of full time church planters is recognised, but not
strongly encouraged. There are many ways to start new churches;
the whole Body of Christ can and should be mobilised to this
Jesus as Head of His Expanding Church- I will
build My Church is His promise for every generation of
Christian leaders. He is Lord of the Church, and has given
His Spirit to lead us in the church planting task in any given
Missionaries from the West- Their function is primarily
apostolic and facilitative
helping nationals to do what
God is calling them to.
National Visionary Leaders- God raises up key leaders,
who lead others into His vision for their country.
National trainers- Western missionaries intend to encourage
and equip gifted national leaders to train their own countrymen,
as soon as possible.
Other Christians- Expatriate workers linked with the
national Church CAN work together in unity-- in prayer, sharing
of some resources, and owning the goal for a discipled nation.
Strategic Use of Outside Funding- not for salaries
and buildings, but used tactically to launch movements
V. Ways Local Churches Can Be Involved
in the Vision of Country-wide Church Planting
Prayer- for the movement, for the workers, for the
Information on the Movement- bulletin boards, newspapers,
etc. can all highlight specifics on SCP.
Sending leaders to participate in the training- Pastors
can recommend, send and support men and women called of God
to this work..
Joining with other churches- in launching new works,
developing small house groups that can lead toward
becoming new churches, instituting a cell group movement
in a given area, classic mother-daughter church
VI. Why You Should Be Involved in Church Planting
Church planting is a biblical strategy - Acts 13:2,3; 14:21-23
Church planting is an effective means of evangelism - Mt.
Church planting reaches new generations - new forms often
call for new churches, to reach new generations
Church planting is an effective way to reach people groups
- Sub-groups in cities can be targeted in new church efforts
Church planting expands denominational strength - new churches
grow budgets, leaders and harvest force workers.
People need churches where there are none - Many of the towns & cities
in the nation are unreached, with no evangelical churches present
