Selection Discipler Disciple Follow-up

LearningDynamics


Principles

Principles

Selection: (1) With criteria that help identify in whom to invest.

God as the source and focus of our formation. This includes:

(2) The Holy Spirit as the Master Teacher. There should be flexibility and discernment to allow the Holy Spirit to teach and reveal what He wishes.

(3) The Word of God as our foundation and principal tool.


Principles1

Principles

A discipler/mentor/pastoral leader. This person should be characterized by being:

(4) Relational, having a committed and personal relationship with the EMPL, be it individually and/or in a small group, connecting with both the leaders´ life and ministry.

(5) An example: being a model or living demonstration of what he wants to teach.

(6) A facilitator: enabling people to learn (and teach), through personal discovery, what most interests them.

(7) Contextual: adapting the instruction according to the maturity, ability, situation and needs of the participants.


Principles2

Principles

The disciple. This includes:

(8) Active participation, with interactive methods and material that stimulate participation.

(9) Competence: growing in character (being), ability (doing) and knowledge (knowing).

(10) Teachable: the desire and commitment to always be growing, searching for learning opportunities.


Principles3

Principles

The learning process. This includes:

(11) Evaluation: Based on the EMPL’s personal and ministerial growth, rooted in self-evaluation and enhanced by the perspective of those to whom he ministers, his peers and his instructor/mentor/discipler.

(12) Small groups: experiential, interactive training, developed in the context of reflection and shared assessment.

(13) Transferable concepts: simple enough to be easily remembered, used and passed on to others.

Follow-up: (14) Designing steps for putting what is learned into practice after the training event.
