The goal of the Four-Fields Training (4FT) strategy is to serve local believers and church leaders by providing training in evangelism, short-term discipleship, and church formation following the Four Fields method for multiplying a church planting movement. The 4FT strategy is characterized by being biblical, simple, and reproducible. These are not definitive lessons on the Christian life, but easily communicated stories focused on how the early Christians went from a small group of believers to a movement that spread throughout the entire world. The 4FT strategy takes a unique solutions approach as it seeks to develop a culturally relevant program of training that connects with each cultural context. 4FT is a key strategy for achieving a sustainable and growing church planting movement.

We continue in our series After Evangelicalism, What? with the provocative topic of church planting. Starting new churches has long been considered one of the most strategic methods of evangelism. However, with more churches closing than starting in 2019, we rightly reconsider its strategic nature. Should we plant a church where the church is already planted? How is our understanding of church planting today different from church planting in the New Testament? Should we instead be calling ourselves to church multiplication? And, if a church is not multiplying, should it even be called a church? These and other questions are addressed on this episode of the Ephesiology Podcast.
