The late Ralph Winters estimates that 95% of those who need training for the Lord's work cannot receive it because:
THERE IS A LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT GAP
(1) It is too expensive,
(2) It is above their academic level,
(3) It is not available in their area.
(International Journal of Frontier Missions - Fall 2003)
THERE IS A SOLUTION
Ralph Winters, in cooperation with other missionaries, developed a dynamic three-step method that transforms willing workers into strong leaders and recruits serious-minded full-time workers. It multiplies leadership within the church. It has been successfull around the world for half a century.
THE THREE-STEP METHOD
(1) Programmed Home-Study Materials
(2) Dynamic Weekly Discussions
(3) Practical Assignments
This method is:
- Relatively Inexpensive
- Easy to Manage
- Develop Strong Leaders
- Develop More Leaders
LET ME HELP YOU
I began using the three-step method in 1985 as a missionary in Nigeria. I helped established the Christian Leadership Training Institute in 1996 to provide this method of training to churches in western Africa. I directed the Institute for ten years and turned it over to African leadership. I retired from the field in 2008. The three-step method is building the churches spiritually and numerically. It is recruiting serious-minded workers for the Kingdom.
I began Grassroots Leadership Development in 2009. I help missionaries around the world set up the three-step method. I train key leaders to supervise the program. I have twelve (12) programmed home-study courses that you can use to train leaders. To learn more, click the green button on the left labeled THE METHOD.
