M4 CHURCH PLANT TRAINING
PLANT, REVITALISE, GROW CHURCHES

The M4 process seeks to help the church leader and their team get ready for success in the first years of church planting or revitalising. Assessment of potential lead planters, online access to courses, facilitation in small groups, church leadership mentoring, consultancy and coaching is offered to those getting their church ready for planting or revitalising in the coming years. Success means that, at the end of the 3 year training process, a team is ready to launch a multiplying evangelistic church that glorifies God and impacts society. 

Is your church considering planting or revitalising in the next 5 years but lacking a lead planter, not able to lose a significant number of good people and not having enough good team members to launch?

Do you want to be inspired and informed about how other churches made their first steps?

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?

M4 uses the Great Commission as a framework for training: 

 

  • Master: All authority in heaven and earth has been given to Jesus.

  • Mission: Therefore, go...

  • Multiplication: Make disciples of all nations, teaching and baptising them.

  • Movement: Jesus said, 'I am with you always, to the very end of the age.'

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

"We're delighted to bring this successful training process to the UK. We believe that church planting is God's initiative and that it's Christ himself who builds His church. Therefore the authority of the Bible is essential for the content and message of the M4 Process. We want to see a multiplying movement of missional churches, leaders with a Kingdom mentality that seek relationships first and are open to changes and improvement when they walk into the future together with God and His church."

Martin Erwin, CEO Counties

I am excited by the prospect of a strong relationship with M4 as we need a vehicle for training church planters and their teams. M4 resonates deeply with me as I love the method of training the church planter and the team together, formulating the action plan and a coach holding them accountable to their own action plan. Also, the four Ms are values that we in the Free Methodist Church wholeheartedly hold to.

John Townley, National Leader of Free Methodist Church UK & Ireland.
