A catalyst for discipleship
The Flow acts as a catalyst for our alternative approach to discipleship – beyond education to experience. The four stages offer leaders a visual template to pass on their beliefs, practices and teaching. It is simple and easy for any leader to adopt.
Each quadrant of The Flow emphasizes the importance of a leader including their followers in their journeys. Each diagram leads people through our distinctive, whereby a leader’s role is not to educate someone and then hope they go and experience it. Instead encourages the leader to take them on an experience and educate them on their way. It is the one idea that can change the world.
Explaining the vision behind the program.
Step 1 - Experience it
In the first step, the leader and disciple set a goal and choose an experience. They then go on this experience together, both of them working to accomplish the goal that they have set. The disciple takes note of what they saw the leader do and what they did themselves.
Step 2 - Question it
After the experience, the leader and disciple sit down and remind themselves of the goal that they have set. In order to do this, they make a simple list of all the things that did not work, and all of the things that worked. This questioning prepares the disciple to identify steps they can learn from.
Step 3 - Understand it
The leader and disciple look at the previous list and discover what all the things that worked have in common, but is not present in the things that did not work and vice versa. They then identify a principle they can apply to future experiences.
Step 4 - Multiply it
Using a simple tool, they now identify what the disciple can practically do to bring others into their experience. They outline how to go the extra mile, avoid the diverted mile and improve the goal before the leader commissions the disciple to fulfill it.
