One of the most dynamic Church Planting Movements in the world is unfolding today in Asia, through a mighty work of God called “Training for Trainers,” or “T4T.” T4T is not a Western invention. It was developed by an Asian-American missionary named Ying Kai. Overwhelmed by the millions of lost souls surrounding him in Asia, Ying asked God to show him how he could be more fruitful.
God taught Ying to go beyond his limited vision of planting churches, and showed him how he could train a continually multiplying number of church planter trainers. The result was what Ying called T4T, Training for Trainers. In less than a decade, T4T had multiplied a small band of disciples into a movement of more than 80,000 new churches with more than 2 million baptisms.
Today, Ying’s T4T training is being adapted in communities around the world resulting in many new movements to Christ from Hindu, Muslim, Buddhist, and secular background communities.
Perhaps God has lessons in T4T that He can use in your own community. If you would like to be more engaged with proclaiming the gospel, discipling new believers and seeing healthy churches planted and reproducing, we invite you to learn more about T4T and ask God how he might use it to multiply.
