ZOE’s vision for discipleship ministry is to grow disciples in all we do, to build Christ’s Church, and is part of the last phase of our “Apostolic Ministry Teams” strategy. Discipleship ministry teams consist of trained ministry workers planting indigenous churches in newly harvested cities. The churches are part of an apostolic network where oversight and accountability are consistently managed. Some of those in our vocational training program are equipped to build churches upon graduation. Our goal is to have a state-of-the-art church research and resource center to more provide churches with continued support and proven innovations in church ministry. These churches are not to be merely houses of worship, but community centers that provide for the various needs of their communities. This church network will include house churches and home cell groups, and a curriculum that disciples new believers from no knowledge of Christianity to a mature knowledge of Christ.
