Disciple-Making Training Testimonies
We love to give away the Keystone Project training in as many ways as possible. We believe that if we sow sparingly, we will reap sparingly. But if we sow generously, we will harvest bountifully. One of the greatest joys in this work is to hear the stories of how our training has impacted the lives of indigenous leaders and inspired them to lay their lives down to make disciple-making disciples among the unreached. Below are excerpts from a couple recent testimonies that we have received from those who have listened to our online training audio.
Pastor of a large church in Nigeria:
Kindly accept my most profound gratitude for making it possible for me to listen to spectacular, practical, and powerful life changing teaching of my life which revolutionised me and my concept of ministry. The Holy Spirit through the teaching of pastor Richard Greene have made me realise that the gospel is for the whole world but even though I preach the gospel every hour of my life I can never reach the whole world but an army of trained disciples who are filled with the Holy Spirit can take that same gospel to remote villages, towns, cities, countries and disciple more disciples that will take the same gospel to even more people that will make even more disciples that will take the same gospel far beyond my imagination into the world.
My mission passion and wrong belief for the past 10 years was that my success as a pastor was dependent on my ability to fill my church with converts. I have being consumed in the past ten years with the passion to build mega church buildings and establish branches [of my ministry] in every village, town, city, local government area and country of the world in this way I will be obeying the great commission of jesus christ. HOW WRONG I WAS until I listened these teachings pastor Greene.
I WEPT WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT MADE ME REALISE THAT All I NEEDED IS DISCIPLE MAKING MOVEMENT. Make disciples that will make disciples that will make disciples that will make disciples that will go into remote villages and towns of the world.
The Holy Spirit has created a new hunger, craving radical change and approach to kingdom work in me. As the senior pastor of [a large church] I finally realise that although we have church buildings and some branches with large membership if we continue with our current method we will go nowhere. We need to make disciples not converts. I have already started a radical change in our teaching about rapid church growth and expansion. Thank you and God bless pastor Greene.
Pastor of a large church in Tanzania:
REALLY GOD HAS ANSWERED MY PRAYER THROUGH YOUR TRAININGS. YOU KNOW MANY PASTORS WHOM I HAVE TRAINED AND SENT TO MAKE DISCIPLES HAVE FAILED, BECAUSE THEY ALWAYS SAY THAT WE FAIL BECAUSE WE DON’T HAVE MUSIC SOUND AND CHURCH BUILDINGS FOR THEY SEE OTHERS MAKING DISCIPLES WITH THOSE THINGS ( I HAVE DISCOVERED THAT USING MUSIC SOUND IS NOT DISCIPLESHIP, IT BECOMES LIKE AN ENTERTAINMENT TO THEM THAT IS WHY THEY COME AND YOU CANNOT SEE REALLY TRANSFORMATION TO THOSE PEOPLE, THE CHURCH BECOMES LIKE AN ENTERTAINMENT CENTER). AND I DON’T BLAME THEM BECAUSE THIS IS HOW WE HAVE BEEN TEACHING THEM THAT MUSIC SOUND AND CHURCH BUILDING IS VERY CRUCIAL TO WIN SOULS.
I HAVE BEEN SO MUCH TIRED WITH THE MINISTRY BECAUSE THEY COME TO ME AND ASK ME TO FIND SPONSORS TO SUPPORT THEM MUSIC SOUND AND CHURCH BUILDINGS.THIS HAS MADE ME TIRED FOR A LONG TIME, AND I OFTEN SWITCH OFF MY PHONE WHEN THEY CALL ME TO AVOID DISTURBANCE OF ASKING ME TO FIND SPONSORS FOR THEM. NOW I HAVE REALIZED THAT OUR TRAININGS ARE WRONG, THAT’S WHY MANY PASTORS ARE MATERIALISTIC. THEY CANNOT GO BY FAITH.
SO NOW I WANT CHANGE OUR MINISTRY TRAININGS, I WANT TO TRAIN THEM ACCORDING TO YOUR TRAININGS THAT IS WHY I NEED ALL OF YOUR TRAININGS BECAUSE THEY ARE CHEAP TO PRACTICE AND YOU GET REAL TRANSFORMATION OF DISCIPLES.
