SHARE ministry’s calling in Turkanaland, Kenya, has been to equip and deploy indigenous missionaries who share the Gospel and establish disciple-making holistic congregations. Sustainable Disciple-Making Movement (DMM) is our ultimate goal. Organic processes have now begun towards that end. This “salt” and “light” (Matt. 5:13-16) movement is permeating and saturating villages with the Spoken/Written Word of God. The DMM methodology has been contextualized and simplified for the majority Turkana oral learners. They can now hear, understand, receive, digest, and gather together, becoming a multitude of “lighthouses” that shine and impact the dark world around them. This video depicts the outset of that movement. It’s what the Holy Spirit is rolling out through faithful and obedient disciples of Jesus Christ in Turkanaland.

DMM Strategy

To realize and sustain DMM, all Share activities and resources will be laser-focused so as to grow and multiply the “lighthouses” (cell groups/churches) unfettered. The following strategy/action plan will be instrumental in making that happen.

3-Walk, 3 Circles

Go! Sow!

This is the prelude that begins with Survey, bi-weekly Short-Term Outreach & Relief Missions (or mini-STORMs) expeditions in remote villages by our Supervisors, Coordinators, Monitors, and Motivators. Together they reach and find the lost in villages in their respective Zones through homestead-to-homestead evangelism, screening The Jesus Film, presenting the Gospel, leading people to Christ, prayer walks, baptisms, and training how to sow the Gospel by telling their story (3-Walk) and God’s story (3-Circles).

3-Stones

Grow! Harvest!

This methodology teaches new believers how to continue using the “3-Walk”, “3-Circles” method and to proceed to the next level – “3-Stones” principle. This is an advanced, contextualized methodology where they listen to God’s Word for themselves on the Turkana Language Solar-powered Audio Bibles as a reproducible discipling tool for cell groups (lighthouses/churches). The trainer ensures the Audio Bibles are only in the hands of those most committed to leading small groups.

The “3-Stones” methodology starts with each Motivator going to villages they serve, selecting and bringing 1 or 2 strong and proven practitioners of the “3-Walk, 3-Circles” methodology from each village to their respective Zone Center where they are trained and equipped to practice the “3-Stones” principle. They return to their respective villages and recruit, equip, and lead small groups of 6-8 people. They meet frequently and periodically until each participant is skilled at the methods and tools. After a period of time, each person in a small group will recruit and lead more small groups, allowing multiplication and sustainability to occur. The people selected become “Generational Champions” under oversight of their respective Motivator.

Leadership Development

Multiply! Sustain!

This methodology will be the fundamental, overall “Engine” for DMM. It will be the process of reproducing leaders who are able to teach, shepherd, and steward the DMM process of multiplication and sustainability. It will constitute developers and trainers, or “Zone Supervisors”, of a contextualized, simple to understand equipping syllabus/instruction manual to be used by the Generational Champions in developing leaders. The syllabus will include a systematic, step-by-step and progressive study guides that will teach how to use the Audio Bible devices more effectively. Developing the manual is now underway; it’s one of Share’s highest priorities. We plan to have the manual ready for testing and deployment by end of May 2020.

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” – Matt. 28:19-20.

We believe God will use this Biblical DMM process to produce strong disciples that are growing in their faith and serving one another in totality. Realistically, DMM can impact the entire Turkana population in about 4 to 6 years, paving the way for outreach to the neighboring people-groups by Turkana believers themselves!

“And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come” – Matt. 24:14.
