Shepherd’s Corner: February 2022

A Message from Tom Hall, VP of Field Operations

Dear Staff,

Can you believe it’s already been 3 months since the e3 family gathered together in October 2021 for the Made to Multiply Summit? Time sure flies. What an exciting time that was, as we cast vision to equip 1 million believers to share the Gospel and make multiplying disciples of Jesus Christ! The amazing testimonies that were shared at the Summit certainly motivated me to double down on my training and discipleship efforts in 2022, and I hope you also felt a renewed commitment to the Great Commission as a result of our gathering.

Can You Equip 30 People By March?

We’ve already trained over 800 believers in the last few months, so we’re off to a great start so far! Looking ahead, we need to ramp up our efforts so we can see the multiplying effects that will help us reach our end goal. As such, we’d like to see each and every staff member commit to equipping at least 30 people by the end of March. This can easily be done by hosting one Gospel Conversations Training session at your church or in your community. (Please email training@e3partners.org if you need help facilitating the training.)

Opportunities to Get Involved

There are a number of opportunities available to help you embrace the Made to Multiply initiative. We have a 9-month Residency mentorship program kicking off on Tuesday nights via Zoom starting on February 8, which will help you get equipped or grow as a Strategy Coordinator, stewarding a strategy to multiply disciples and churches among a specific people group or place. There’s just one week remaining to sign up, so head on over to EventBrite to register today.

You can also intercede for our new disciple-making initiative from the comfort of your home by joining the Made to Multiply Prayer Team! This group will meet monthly via Zoom to lift up specific prayer requests; please email Debby Parker for details.

Made to Multiply Resources

We also want to make sure you have the resources you need to effectively communicate Made to Multiply to others. You can find a 3-minute video overview about Made to Multiply on the e3 Partners blog and on Vimeo.

Additionally, you can head on over to Google Drive to access a selection of Made to Multiply-themed creative assets, including email headers, logos, fonts, and a branding guide. We encourage you to utilize these materials as you tell your supporters about our goal to equip 1 million believers.

Send Us Your Testimonies!

Lastly, we want to celebrate your successes. Please send your training and discipleship testimonies to our communications team so we can circulate your stories on the e3 Partners blog and in our e3 Times monthly staff newsletter.

Once again, great work everyone and let’s keep multiplying disciples of Jesus Christ until every person and place has been reached with the Gospel!
