God-led, not Teacher-centric
God alone is the author of our unique life stories. The role of a teacher in E2:10 Training is not just to provide the student with new information but is to help them discover what God has already deposited in them and how His unique calling and empowerment informs the direction of their life and mission. While the teacher will not always be available and has a limited amount of information to impart, the Great Teacher will always be present and never be limited in what He can impart.
A tailored, menu approach, not curriculum-driven
Each of us have a unique role to play in this ever expanding kingdom. of God. We are fools to presume that everyone needs to learn the same content in the same way and at the same time. Life and learning don't follow a linear path but are far more mosaic. The E2:10 process takes this truth into account.
Holistic development, not knowledge-based alone
Training should be holistic. The E2:10 process focuses on developing cognition, skills and character. While participants will be exposed to a great deal of knowledge and information, they will also learn and employ skills and strategies for actual life and ministry. Our trainers will not do or teach anything that cannot be emulated and passed on by the participants.
Simple, profound and reproducible, not expert-dependent
Simple reproducible and transferable processes are necessary to fill the earth with His kingdom. The E2:10 process is designed to provide the participants with knowledge, skills, and strategies that they can easily pass on to others who can, in turn, pass them on again.
Training in the midst of life, not classroom-bound
To produce change agents who will run toward the challenges of the world, our training must be conducted in the midst of real life and real world problems. Many educational processes expect the student to withdraw from the world and focus on preparation for life which will begin when the education is over. The E2:10 process expects that the disciple will learn in the midst of life's normal struggles while engaging the world around them. No ivory towers here. We cannot change the world and avoid it at the same time.
Relationally connected, not individually-focused
God has designed us for community. Much significant lifer change occurs in the context of relationships, so participants will learn to live and love together in the midst of life, learning and working. Because each disciple is indwelt by the Spirit of God, God uses us to teach each other. The connections we make will have a significant impact on who we become.
Integrated and infiltrated influence, not merely organizationally oriented
Society is made up of several domains of connectivity, practice and production. The kingdom of God is not meant to be a separate domain in and of itself but is meant to infiltrate every domain and community with the influence of our King, Jesus. When disciples are present in these various domains and communities, they are able to form relationships, make disciples, influence decisions, and see the transformational purpose of God take root.
