Galo is not new to the training scene. He has attended many and his denomination has been working in church planting for several years. But he hadn't attended one like Multiplication Network Ministries' (MNM) before. Impressed, he recently participated in the Church Planter Retreat that took place in Salinas, Ecuador. Galo invited leaders from his church who are interested in becoming future church planters and trainers.
"We invited them because we know they have been waiting for an opportunity to work for God's Kingdom. We believe this is the way they can do so," Galo says.
The work plan they developed will empower them to work in a specific area of the region encompassing various cities. They will identify and train men and women to be church planters in their communities.
MNM's training has been a catapult for the church planting work Galo and his denomination wanted to do. Before, they didn't have the tools and didn't know how to go about it. Armed with MNM's training, they know how to prepare leaders to follow God's call.
"The leaders need a vote of confidence because they have the ability to respond. We have to invite them to be part of this process and motivate them and help them see their potential," Galo says. "This has been a new experience and we are seeing positive responses."
