Church Planting Strategies
The Reach Strategy

Training 4 Trainers and Discovery Bible Study
Two of the most effective disciple making strategies we have seen employed throughout the world are Training 4 Trainers (T4T) and Discovery Bible Studies (DBS or also known as Disciple Making Movements, DMM). We encourage you to look into these models and use one, both, or a hybrid to become more effective at disciple-making. You can also read this very informative article comparing the two strategies that originally appeared in Mission Frontiers magazine.
Mobile Ministry is the use of mobile devices (e.g., cell phones, tablets) to advance the Gospel. Renew specializes in a sub-category of Mobile Ministry – offline distribution – for people with no or limited internet access. This is a great tool to use for follow up after a Gospel presentation! Many groups are advancing the Kingdom doing Mobile Ministry with online apps and internet, but Renew is focused on remote people in the developing world who have little to no internet access. If you are new to mobile ministry, probably the best place to start is reading through the very helpful Mobile Ministry Made Easy guide.
