- How was the Ministry established?
- Who are the ZOE facilitators?
- How are ZOE facilitators selected? Is it possible for me to become a facilitator?
Trained ZOE facilitators assist participants in understanding who they are in Christ. They lead class discussions while encouraging active participation from class members and aiding participants in recognizing and expressing the gifts God has uniquely given each of them.
ZOE is not a traditional Bible study or a class where the teacher speaks and people sit back and take notes. ZOE’s course facilitators act as coaches who train and encourage all participants to become passionate players in the Body of Christ.
We believe that Christians need to know who they are in Christ and to establish an authentic relationship with Him before attempting to do His work. The Training School provides a practical, Scripture-based discipleship program that trains and equips a believer to do the work of the kingdom.
A ZOE Training School is any location where the bulk of the dozen or more ZOE courses are being offered. Eventually, we envision these Schools and courses to be available on-line.
ZOE’s facilitators are dedicated believers from many walks of life: construction workers, home-makers, engineers, teachers, lawyers, entrepreneurs, bankers, secretaries, retirees, pastors, medical/dental practitioners, and so on.
ZOE facilitators are selected by other facilitators, pastors or leaders who believe an individual is mature enough in the Lord to be in a leadership role. A facilitator must be willing to assume a position of disciple-maker rather than teacher. Meeting these qualifications, yes, you too can become a facilitator.
Contact us! There may be classes in your area that you can attend, or maybe we will need to train you or a member of your church to facilitate ZOE classes. It is ZOE’s vision to implement Training Schools in churches under local pastors or in homes under responsible leadership, and you may be instrumental in bringing a training program to your church or area.
