I believe that Ethnos360 has a great deal to offer churches as we minister together to reach the world with the glorious message about Jesus!


Thousands of missionaries and their supporting churches have worked together over 75 years to employ Biblical principles to plant more than 1200 churches.  That work and a heart learn has resulted in some tremendous, time-tested tools for planting churches, for intentional discipleship and for preparing the next generation of Christians to complete the Great Commission!


Here are some things I have discovered:


1) Evangelism & Discipleship. Time tested evangelism materials, following Biblical methods for teaching which can immediately establish reproducible patterns for discipleship. This is an effective Christ-centered foundational teaching curriculum leading toward maturity in Christ. The objective includes replacing false "master stories" or assumptions about reality and resultant worldviews with the Biblical metanarrative. Every person's greatest need is the discovery of and submission to the knowledge of God's glory. (2 Cor. 4:4-7)


- Building on Firm Foundations series. This is a guide missionaries use for tribal church planting. Volume One - Lays out some of the Biblical Principles for this method of teaching. Did God give us Biblical patterns for teaching to lay foundations for truth? (This was used among the Mouk people of the "Ee-Taow!" videos.)
