With USA Master Trainers
Much of the training of national pastors and church planters is done by Master Trainers (MTs) from the USA. The national workers are given 30 hours of instruction in two, three-day conferences held six months apart.
With National Master Trainers
More and more of the training of national leaders is now being done through National Regional Master Trainers (NRMTs) in the Majority World who have been trained by Mission Catalyst personnel. We now have 27 NRMTs around the world who are doing a phenomenal job of training workers in their own countries.
Areas of Emphasis
The training given by both USA MTs and NRMTs from the Majority World concentrates on training national pastors and church planters to be more effective at evangelism, the proper discipling of new believers, how to birth daughter congregations, how to specifically target Unreached Peoples for church planting, and how to more effectively train and release workers for the harvest.
Testimonies from National Workers
I am happy to report that through the training we received, our church has started five new house churches in our area and one main church in another community. Our church has greatly grown in number due to the new strategy we introduced after the training. Recently we baptized 80 Christians and have 50 more awaiting baptism. The training materials we received is of great help. I have now trained all the leaders from our church using the material. The strategy is really working for us.
I have been a senior pastor for 30 years but have never attended a seminar like this. The strategy of winning new believers, discipleship, and church planting is simple and can be understood by all believers in my church. I will make certain that this training will be implemented in my church.
A Great Commission Equipping Conference was held for 75 of our workers. The training was amazing. It was like the fire of God came down and consumed us with a new passion to reach our country and all our unreached people groups for Christ.
Mission Catalyst trains national church planting missionaries to reach those who have not heard.
From our inception in 2002, Mission Catalyst has conducted more than 1,500 Great Commission Equipping Conferences and through them trained more than 90,000 national leaders for more effective ministry among the world’s least-reached peoples.
Signed commitments have been received from these national workers for the planting of some 500,000 churches and house churches and house in the 10/40 Window.
- Great Commission Conferences 80% 80%
- National Leaders 60% 60%
- Signed commitments 50% 50%
- House Churches in 10/40 Window 90% 90%
Mission Catalyst is deeply committed to training national workers how to be more effective in prayer and intercession.
In the Great Commission Conferences conducted by both USA and overseas Master Trainers, much time is spent during the conferences interceding both for the country where the training is being held and for the Unreached Peoples who live in that country.
