Charting Impact

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

TTI exists to advance Christ's Kingdom by mulitplying disciples and disciple-making churches around the world.

We train church planters to plant multiplying churches, which in turn become training centers to continue the mission.

We have seasoned church planters and teachers that train the next generation of church planters to minister effectively in their target areas. They receive 2 years of training and mentoring, during which time they are actively engaging in evangelism and discipleship. They plant a minimum of one church, and train at least two others to do the same. Multiplication is the DNA of TTI, and is passed down to those that work with us.

We have runners that gather reports from each training center. These reports are collected quarterly and the progress is measured carefully against the goals of each project. Reports are turned in and crosschecked for accuracy on a quarterly basis.

Thus far, we've seen more than 40,000 churches planted with roughly 12 new churches being established every 24 hours. Over 750,000 lives have been transformed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
