MCNet CLI Update

In April Phil was also able to meet with Raydel and the key leaders launching our Competency Based Mentorship in Dominican Republic. This extensive 4 year program (CLI) is designed for those who feel called to serve in a more full time capacity in ministry. As in many countries, church leaders often have very minimal biblical and leadership training. Our goal is to provide training through am innovative mentorship approach. Rather than requiring them to leave their ministry and community and meet at a training center or bible school. Instead, the study the materials and are linked with a mentor who guides them through the eight modules (40 competencies) of the program.

This targeted approach is where the future of training is moving and yet the mentoring model is as old as the first century when Jesus trained the first disciples. While in each region each candidate meets in person with their mentor, there is also an online component, as each candidate worldwide has access to the materials in an electronic format. Over the last couple years we are working out the wrinkles in DR and will be enrolling more candidates throughout Latin American (the materials are already about 50% translated into Spanish). It will also be introduced in Guatemala and Colombia later this year.
