Zúme Training uses an online training platform to equip participants in basic disciple-making and simple church planting multiplication principles, processes, and practices. The course is online, free, and self-facilitated. Anyone can lead a group!
Zúme means yeast in Greek. In Matthew 13:33, Jesus is quoted as saying, “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a woman who took yeast and mixed it into a large amount of flour until it was all leavened.”
This illustrates how ordinary people, using ordinary resources, can have an extraordinary impact for the Kingdom of God.
