What is M4 Ready?
M4 Ready is a course for young leaders in local churches, denominations or organizations who already possess some leadership skills, like to initiate new things and bring change.
M4 Ready will help them find out:
If they have a passion and calling for church planting
If they could see themselves as a part of a church planting team
If they can see themselves as a leader in a local church or in other roles with a clear perspective of the importance of church planting
Church Planting: Understanding the Process of Planting a New Church
Personal Development: Self-Mastery and a Resilient Lifestyle
Evangelism: Presenting the Gospel and Understanding the Context
Communication: Preaching and Teaching Biblically and Relevantly
Team Development: Building a Healthy and Well-Functioning Team
Discipleship: Creating a Discipleship Culture
The course includes 6 modules of teaching and relevant assignments to be completed in local contexts. It is supplemented by the Participant’s workbook which helps participants to stay on track.
Mentors support and encourage participants throughout the learning process and keep them accountable for their progress. Mentoring can happen one-on-one, in small groups or cohorts. Different nations choose the intensity of mentoring differently (for example, twice in each module, or once after each module).
A gathering of all participants in a nation, region or denomination which takes place at the end of Module 1. It is a time of worship, fellowship and committing to each other and the course.
A meeting in a local church with 5-20 participants from a region and their leaders. Typically 4-5 meetings will take place during the entire course to provide a space for mutual support and encouragement among the participants.
This inspiring trip often is an international trip of all M4 Ready participants around Europe. It is a time of worship and learning in a location where churches are being planted in various circumstances.
As a nation, region or denomination implements the course, they can decide how to customize these aspects of the course for their own context.
