A program has been developed and tested over the years to train people to want to establish a Community Based Program which integrates evangelism and discipleship. We can also assist those who have already established their own Community Based program and want to integrate evangelism and discipleship components.
The training consists of three one-week seminars spread over one year. This allows participants to put into practice what they have learned prior to moving on to the next seminar.
Is to introduce people to Community Health Evangelism concepts and to give them a vision and the How To’s for implementation and managing CHE in their organizations. The people trained can then return to their area to begin the program and train local villagers as CHEs.
Integration: of the physical and spiritual ministry, changing lives with the leverage of Christ’s demonstrated love.
Multiplication: through training of community members who will transform others, multiplying the results from community to community.
Community Ownership: This promotes propagation. A program directed by the community itself with minimum resources from the outside
TOT 1 equips people to become trainers of Community Health Evangelists [CHEs]. The intent is that they will choose a location in which to start their own Community Health Evangelism [CHE] program. TOT 1 focuses on the development philosophy of what CHE is and how to start a CHE program. Spiritually, it emphasizes Evangelism. As a result of TOT 1, the trainers return to their, choose a community in which to work, enter the community, and create interest within that community to implement their own CHE program.
Once a trainer has mobilized his community, he returns to the second phase of training. TOT 2 focuses on developing teaching materials and curriculum. Spiritually, we emphasize follow-up of new believers. As a result, the trainers are ready to train committee members and CHEs.
