Local Missions Training

May 2021 - October 2021

Singapore May 15th 2021 – October 16th 2021

If you want practical, biblically grounded training that will empower you and your team to be and make disciples that can multiply, LMT is for you!


The Local Missions Training (LMT) teaches fundamentals of  disciple-making that will lead to transformation of communities, not just individuals. It is suitable for anybody engaged in local outreach, evangelism, church planting and/or cross-cultural mission.

The training consists of 6 x monthly online sessions where we dive deep into what Scripture says about God’s mission and vision to ask, ‘What will it take  to see this fulfilled in our nation and region?’.

The Bible has the loudest voice in this training process, supplemented with an introduction to Disciple-Making Movements (DMM) and practical tools that will help you apply these  insights to your own context and partner with God in working towards His end vision.

Between sessions, participants will meet together in their groups/teams  to process what they are learning, share their experiences in the  harvest and pray together. The most powerful learning takes places as teams learn with and from each other and the contexts God has called them to.

The example and teaching of Jesus and His first disciples will transform the way you think about and engage in evangelism and discipleship!

Reflections from past participants:

I am grateful for the time we spent in group discussions, looking into scriptures and sharing insights on how Jesus engaged the communities and how the disciples present the Gospels in ways that are relevant to different people groups. Scott’s guided questions are helpful and thought-provoking, we were able to learn from each other and be open about the mistakes we make in the process of disciple-making and community engagement.‘ – MS

‘I like the combination of teaching, practicum during the month before the next session, individual coaching and debriefing and yes, the group sharing – not just about the Bible text but also experiences from the practicum. It was good seeing Scott and Sarah working as a team to lead the sessions. Scott also referred us to current books which added another dimension. I had lots of questions when the wheel hit the road, and Scott was always ready for further coaching, often via WhatsApp.’ – YS

The training was good. Particularly useful – digging through scriptures during class and as homework definitely helped give me a better understanding of the early church’s disciple-making model. Listening to what the other participants were doing also gave me ideas how to have more intentional encounters with pre-believers.‘ – CSC
