One church multiplies into six

A Zúme coach and practitioner in the U.S. shared that 18 months ago he was a part of a small church that had 10-15 people in attendance. Now, that church has multiplied into 6 churches with the same number of people in each. Elders are being appointed and the bodies are being equipped for good works. 

At the same time, God is using this coach abroad. He is coaching believers in other countries through the internet. He led 8-10 sessions of the Zúme training each week for the past 7 months. Some of those trainings have been with small groups and some with individuals but he reports that these trainings are producing fruit. Despite great persecution, many people are coming to Christ. 313 baptisms happened within a two-week time span. In other places 10-20 are being baptized at a time. 

He acknowledges that he longs to see more. He says, “I’m praying for movements, but I realize it begins with a little addition at first then multiplication.” May God hear the prayer of our brother.

Practitioners in Southern Asia pursue village saturation

A Zúme practitioner recently shared with his coach progress among the people he serves in Southern Asia. He trained 51 people across 2 countries in Zúme practices and skills. So far these training efforts resulted in six fruitful and active implementers whom the Zúme practitioner coaches.  These six implementers are spreading to various villages to bring good news of the Kingdom. With the COVID lockdown still in place, these people are going to families in need of food.  They report back about the families they are helping and bringing the Gospel of Grace to. The Zúme practitioner said, “As you would expect, these are hard times but God is using it for His glory and He has given us a clear message that we need to equip and prepare His army using Zoom now.”

Prayer Walking spreads to generations

Zúme coaches serve disciple makers all over the world through training, sharing resources, and providing coaching towards multiplication of disciples that make disciples.

One of our Zúme coaches works with someone on a Caribbean island. She has been training people in prayer walking.

Her coach introduced her to the Zúme page on prayer walking in order to use it to prepare people she was about to train and to review with people she had already trained.

Just 24 hours later after receiving the training from her coach, one hundred people had already been exposed to the material in several generations of sharing it.

Largest Zume Training Group Yet?

550 key leaders, in an Asian country, went through Zume together. Each of these 550 leaders represent entire networks of disciples and churches. Even if only a fraction of these leaders take the training back to their networks, the impact could be exponential. We pray this training would be a blessing and a resource for multitudes of disciple makers in all of the current 37 finished languages.
