Project Prelude: The information below helps define the elements of the project. The elements are designed to aid and support Foursquare Philippines Pastors Val Chavez, Carisa Cruz of Abundant Life Christian Fellowship, Young Life Philippines, and Bishop Efraim Tendero – Philippine Council of Evangelical Churches in Manila and Cebu. The outreaches are designed to be all-inclusive, and also serve as a template for those who wish to utilize it in the future. This is a holistic and collaborative, evangelical-discipleship project. The effort includes medical and dental brigades coordinated by the Philippine Relief and Development Services, Pure Works, Foursquare Philippines and local barangay officials. The outreach theme is \”Only 1\”. The outreach and subsequent discipleship retention promotes natural growth from within each church, through mass-scale, one-on-one, personal relationships of believers and potential new believers.
Vision, Goal, Strategy, Tactics & Event Description
Presented by: Rich Young – Founder/President
The Pure Works Foundation
Vision: to see high-yield evangelism based on personal, one-on-one relationships that support valid church growth of participanting churches and other Christian based organizations. Matthew 28:18-20; John 4:35-29; Matthew 13:8 & 23
Goal: To offer and empower tactical support for churches and other Christian based organization to reap the rewards of fruit, much fruit, fruit that remains through discipleship. John 15
Strategy: The \”Only 1\” strategy is to enroll and confirm those believer members of their respective church (organization or affiliate), that they are both willing and able to bring a non-believer, \”Only 1,\” or non-Christian, to an event that will effectively demonstrate the love of God, present the gospel in a manner that will intrigue the non-believer, and provide them opportunity for their decision for Christ. In so doing, the believer member must also agree that prepare themselves as a mentor for the non-beliver they bring. The non-believer must also qualify for discipleship and probable church growth should they make a decision for Christ. How is this done? This is simply achieved by knowing that the non-believer geographically resides in the same proximity of the sponsoring believer who is bringing them to the event, or in close proximity to the church where they would be discipled should they make a decision for Christ.
Tactics: the commitment; the training; the qualifying; the invitation; the decision, the discipleship; the accountability report.
- Commitment – must be requested by the pastor of his congregation of believers to invite, \”Only 1\”;
- Training – believers must be trained for mentorship in seven (7) basic doctrines of faith by pastor;
- Qualifying – the non-believer (Only 1) must be someone the believer has a personal relationship, i.e., family member, work associate, fellow student, and must live in close proxmity to the church of the sponsoring beliver and pastor;
- Invitation – must be made with a commitment from the non-believer (Only 1) to attend the event;
- Decision – the believer must be responsible for accompanying the non-believer (Only 1) to and from the event and monitor the decision of the non-believer;
- Discipleship – the believer must be responsible to their pastor to help mentor and disciple the new believer (Only 1) as directed by the pastor;
- Accountbility Report – the pastor must account as to those who made a decision for Christ (however many the total number of his own church believers succeeded in bringing) to the event, and follow up three months later after the event with the status of their discipleship to PCEC.
