4D Church Planting
4D’s are required to plant a healthy Church.The 4D’s are: Discern the revelation, Discover the ripe, Develop the reliable, and Deploy the ready.
Discerning the revelation has to do with the church planter’s understanding God’s direction from Scripture and the Holy Spirit. We cannot take this for granted. Jesus told us the secret to his success was doing what he hear and say the Father doing, John 5:19,30. I know I have sometimes gotten impatient and missed the will of God on key church planting decisions and this has slowed down my process. Don’t make this mistake.
Discover the ripe has to do with faith-mindset related to reaching people. Discovery evangelism believes that God has prepared some persons of peace for harvest. The planter focuses is attention skimming his ministry field for those who are prepared.
