The Equipping for Ministry (Phase III) resources are available to help a leader (or team of leaders) train a group of believers who are ready to learn the basics of ministry. The resources are designed for a small team that will interact around ministry themes and take action in evangelism. We strongly encourage that the Christian Growth Checklist (CGC) be administered to all participants to determine if this is the appropriate faith challenge for them.
Actually, Equipping for Ministry (Phase III) encompasses two phases simultaneously. Imbedded in the Phase III materials are tools to reach unbelievers and assist (follow-up) people who have recently trusted Christ (both of these groups are in Phase I, Establishing Faith). After leading people to faith in Christ and conducting basic follow-up, the ministry should then implement Laying Foundations (Phase II). (See Phase II information above.)
