HOW REDEMPTIVE LIFT WORKS

SELECTED

A potential Transformational Community Leader is nominated by their leadership for admission into the Petros Network Leadership Training and Sponsorship Program. We receive candidates from over 65 partnering denominations and church communities who support the vision to create Redemptive Lift around the world.

As an example, let’s introduce you to a transformational community leader named Samuel. “Samuel is honored to be nominated by his denomination and church community for this great opportunity. He has been a Christian for 5 years and he feels a strong call upon his life to impact a rural village for good through Redemptive Lift. Petros Network will enable him to do the work he feels God has placed upon his heart to do.”

Transformational Community Leaders are equipped for Redemptive Lift

TRAINED & COMMISSIONED

After a potential Transformational Community Leader has been nominated they are sent to their first Petros Network intensive training conference. At this event, they are taught Redemptive Lift strategies in Bible and transformational leadership from leading pastors and teachers from around the world. Transformational Community Leaders are then commissioned and assigned to an unreached village for up to three years.

“Next Samuel attends his first Petros Network intensive training. He has the opportunity to meet other like-minded fearless men and women. After hours of training and being interviewed by the Petros Network team, Samuel is commissioned as one of Petros Network’s Transformational Community Leaders.”

LAUNCHED

Transformational Community Leaders are launched into some the most remote, hard to reach places in the world; places where there is little or no infrastructure or resources. They live as men and women of peace, delivering the message of God’s love for people and unleashing Redemptive Lift through community development and compassion and care for the extreme poor.

“Samuel is then sent out with a three year stipend and the prayers & support of his sponsors. When asked why he wants to partner with Petros Network to share the Love of God and impact his community with compassion and care he said, “It’s simple. I am simply doing what Jesus did.I would give my life for this because Christ gave his life for me.”

Transformational Community Leaders mentored in Redemptive Lift

Transformational Community Leaders are divided into teams of 10-15 by geography. Each team is led by a field coordinator who offers support, encouragement and Redemptive Lift coaching on a regular basis. Petros Network’s national offices provide supervision and continued mentoring while the Transformational Community Leader is active in the field.

“Samuel does not go it alone. His area coordinators and other Transformational Community Leaders in the surrounding areas come together and are mentored and encouraged once a month as they share about Redemptive Lift in their communities.”

Transformational Community Leaders are a conduit of Redemptive Lift

A CONDUIT OF REDEMPTIVE LIFT

Thriving faith communities become the center of the local community from which everyone benefits. We walk alongside and train Transformational Community Leaders to leverage their influence and resources to resolve community needsempower women, protect children, educate out of poverty, feed families, improve health, provide clean water and build character through sports— so that all of life in that community improves. We call this community transformation “Redemptive Lift.”

“One of Petros Network’s core missional values is, the local church is the hope of the world. When Samuel establishes a faith community in an unreached village, ALL of life in the community benefits regardless of faith, gender, or tribe. For just a little money there is massive impact. “

 

REPRODUCES 3+ FAITH COMMUNITIES

Following their initial commissioning, Transformational Community Leaders agree to launch three (3) additional faith communities and mentor leaders in the same way they have been trained to share the love of Jesus and create Redemptive Lift in their villages. To date our Transformational Community Leaders have produced an average of two and a half faith communities during their initial three (3) years in our program. The result is that entire villages, neighborhoods and cities are transformed from places of hopelessness to places of peace and opportunity.

“Samuel is on the move—delivering the message of God’s love in unreached communities and making leaders who reproduce still other leaders who will develop people and transform communities. Every village is unique. Sometimes Samuel has to be creative in his approach that best serves his community. From Samuel’s initial faith community he has gone on to plant 4 more thriving churches that become beacon’s of hope and transformation for the entire community.”

FULLY SUSTAINABLE AFTER 3 YEARS

Within the three (3) year sponsorship incubation period, Petros Network sets Transformational Community Leaders on a path to becoming self-sustaining and reproducing. They, and their churches, are then released and returned to the support of their denomination or governing body. Typically by the end of three (3) years, faith communities planted reach the numerical and maturity standards required by their denomination to be considered a fully functioning church community.

“After the three (3) years of training and mentorship, Samuel, is equipped to continue to lead in his village. He is also eligible for further education through an accredited Bible Diploma Program. Sponsorships are available to assist him in this next step.”
