Project 21 - Background Page

Paul, Bunty and David Collins write:

God is moving on the earth like never before. More people have turned to Jesus in this last ten years than in any other decade since the Book of Acts. Whole tribes, nations, cities and villages are being impacted by the power of the Gospel.

But with this global move of God's Spirit comes a problem. The Church is outgrowing its capacity to train leaders. The greatest need in many parts of the world today is teaching.

Project 21 is part of the answer to this wonderful problem. This manual has been compiled not just to teach you, but to equip you for the task of teaching others.

A Workman Approved

Gone are the days when a Christian could be a spectator to other people's ministry. God is calling every believer to play a role in the gathering, nuturing and teaching of others. "
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth" 2 Timothy 2:115.
You are a workman with God. But every workman needs tools. The main tool you have been given is the "word of truth." The word of God is described as a sword (Ephesians 6:15), but a sword needs to be handled properly.

When correctly handled, the word of God is anointed by the Holy Spirit to do a deep work in a person's life (Hebrews 4:12). But before you can teach the living word of God, you must first allow that word to do a work in your own life. We can only truly teach what has become real for ourselves.

Multiplying God's Word

"But the word of God grew and multiplied" Acts 12:24 (NKJB).
This manual has been designed with a multiplication effect in mind. It is not just meant to be read, but to be taught to others.
"And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others" 2 Timothy 2:2.
Project 21 is not just for you to learn but for you to teach. And you can teach others to teach others...to teach others...to teach others. In this way, God's word multiplies through you.
