THE G12 VISION
He appointed twelve, that they might be with him, and that he might send them forth (Mark 3:14)
G12 is a vision for discipleship
Jesus said, "Make disciples" (See Matthew 28:1920). He did not just tell us to evangelize or to get decisions. In the ministry of Open Eyes Mission, people who accept the Gospel and believe are discipled. They are taught, shaped and formed into the image of Jesus.
G12 is a vision for cells
Cells are small groups of people who meet together weekly in order to disciple each other and reach out to those who do not know Christ.
The G12 vision facilitates the multiplication of cell groups, the training of new leaders and the discipleship of every member of the body of Christ. The aim of the model is that everybody is involved in a cell of 12 people, and that everybody becomes a leader, and runs a cell of 12 people. Everyone is ministered to and everyone is a minister.
G12 is a vision for leadership
The name G12 stands for Government of 12 which emphasizes the leadership development aspect of the vision. Every Christian is a potential leader. We are all called to serve Jesus and to lead others to Him. Those who are leading cells are discipled in groups of 12 (like the 12 disciples of Jesus). Therefore everyone who ministers is also ministered to in this vision. That means there is proper accountability in all things.
G12 is a vision for multiplication
This is one of the most exciting aspects of the vision. Jesus purpose for us is fruitfulness. He wants us to be successful in our lives. He calls us to be fruitful and multiply.
In the G12 vision, the cell groups do not divide - instead they multiply. When a person becomes part of a cell they start to pray and fast for three non-Christians. One by one they are led to Christ and become part of the cell until that cell reaches 12. Then the multiplication takes place. Each person in the cell then starts to build a new cell. They continue to receive help, mentoring and encouragement from the original cell, but they also start their own cell. When all the members of the original cell have started their own new cell, the original cell becomes a G12 group. The G12 group is made up of leaders who have their own cells and meet for leadership training, to share about their progress, and for encouragement and support.
G12 is a vision for the Glory of God
Something wonderful happens when God's people are mobilized. The superstar syndrome disappears and the work is done by all. The real heroes in this vision are the members of the church, not a handful of its super-anointed leaders. That way God can really get the glory. Signs, wonders, miracles and mighty deeds happen throughout the whole church and everyone has a part to play.
The G12 vision is a comprehensive one. And it will take some time before it is fully implemented. It will mean new initiatives and creative innovation in every area of our mission network, church and personal lives. It will bring unrecognizable transformation to the way we think about church fellowship and to the way we do things. The cost is high. We do not doubt it. But the rewards are going to be worth it.
A RUN THROUGH THE G12 MODEL
To Win Souls and Make Disciples
To Make Every Believer a Leader
THE LADDER OF SUCCESS
The goal that we are aiming for is for every believer (old and new) to be discipled to the point that they become leaders of a new cell. Then they will begin to climb the ladder of success. It has four stages: Win, Consolidate, Disciple and Send.
Prayer for Three
Three believers make a covenant to form a cell group together. Each one of them prays for 3 unsaved persons for 30 days. At this stage, cell groups operate as prayer cells.
After the 30-day Prayer for Three, each of the three pioneering members of the cell contacts and shares the Gospel to each of the 3 persons that he/she has prayed for. Then, they invite them to the cell, a net meeting or a church service.
Homogenous Cell Groups
Homogeneous groups allow people to learn and grow in the company of like-minded people who have the same needs, face the same challenges and share the same interests, identity and language. The gospel (evangelism and discipleship) travels fastest along these kinship or homogeneous lines. This means that men are best equipped to reach out and disciple men, women best reach women, and so on.
Homogenous Network Meetings
Once a month, each of the 5 networks conduct an evangelistic meeting or service, where they invite new people to attend. Topics and themes for the meetings are designed to meet the unique needs of each homogenous group. At the end of the service, the sick (physically and emotionally) are ministered to, an altar call is made and souls are led to Christ.
Sunday Services are worship and healing services in the Open Eyes Mission Network. The spiritual, emotional and physical needs of the people are met through the preaching of God's word and the ministry of the Holy Spirit. The sick (physically and emotionally) are ministered to, an altar call is made and souls are led to Christ.
To retain new believers
The consolidation process is central to the success of the G12 strategy. In the Open Eyes Mission Network, all believers (old and new alike) are encouraged and taken through the consolidation process.
At the end of each of the services and net meetings, the pastor or leader takes the whole congregation through the sinners' prayer and invites those who have made a first time commitment to come to the front. The consolidation team, which is made up of cell group leaders, joins the new believers. The new believers are then taken to a separate room and the process of consolidation begins.
At this point personal details are recorded and the gospel is shared again to ensure that the new believer understand what has happened to him/her. The new believer is then told that someone will call him/her within two days to find out how he/she is doing. The responsibility of the consolidator is to ensure that the new believer is called within 48 hours and receives a personal visit within a week.
The consolidation process continues through a series of basic Bible lessons called the Pre-Encounter and through a special weekend retreat called the Encounter.
In the Pre-Encounter sessions, new believers study Bible lessons that related to his or her new life in Jesus. A leader personally takes the new believers through several teachings. These cover topics such as:
The Gospel: Four Spiritual Laws
The aim of the Pre-Encounter is to prepare the believer for the Encounter.
To be assure new believers of their salvation
The Encounter usually takes place over a weekend at a retreat center. Before every Encounter, the new believer's cell group is encouraged to prepare itself with much prayer, fasting and spiritual warfare for those participating. Before the Encounter starts, the battle should have been won in the spiritual realm. This way, the cell member will surely have a remarkable Encounter with God.
The Encounter is much more than just a three-day retreat, in a setting away from the normal distractions of life. It should be a time in the life of the believer when he or she will look back many times and remember - an encounter with Jesus!
The aim of the Encounter is total transformation that will give birth to the character of Christ in the new believer. We all need a genuine Encounter with God in order to bring about a total transformation in our lives. It is also an Encounter with one's self, when new believers look inside their lives to see the changes that God wants them to make. Finally, the Encounter take them into the depth of the cell vision, making them reflect on the actual situation of the world and its desperate need of the Savior.
Encounter deals with the following subjects and issues in depth:
Another goal of the Encounter is for new believers to see the Lord face to face so that they are released from everything that hinders them in the ministry. The G12 vision regards everyone as a potential leader and the Encounter is a preparation for the training that takes place at the School of Leaders.
After the Encounter the new believers go through another series of Bible lessons, which take them deeper into the Word and further consolidate their commitment to Christ. During these teaching sessions the new believer learns the following:
How to Confront The World
Upon completion of the Post-Encounter lessons, consolidated believers are encouraged and led to begin the discipleship and equipping process in the School of Leaders. The School of Leaders imparts to them the necessary skills to be able to reproduce in others that which they have freely received form Jesus. They learn the foundations of Christian living, the importance of cell ministry, how to be a leader within a cell group and how to mentor others through the G12 vision.
School of Leaders
The School of Leaders prepares believers to fulfill ChristТs call upon their lives, thoroughly equipping them win souls, making disciples and multiply cell groups.
