TO CARE:

Making known ways to care for oral learners among church and ministry leaders

 

Challenge churches and ministries to remove literate worldview barriers and use oral methods such as Bible stories that form an oral Bible, drama, skits, and other creative expressions to bring God’s Word alive in highly relational formats.

 

Care enough to survey communities using the results to address oral learners by the methods they prefer

 

Include oral methods in worship formats, discipleship studies, evangelization efforts, and leader training

 

TO SHARE:

Making disciple-makers with oral methods that are simple, reproducible and transferable

 

Convey the Gospel story, not just your own story of faith, including relevant stories and proverbs

 

Provide examples of small groups that reproduce themselves through oral methods

 

Bring spiritual transformation through evangelism and discipleship that discover and apply biblical truths through oral methods

 

Provide the Gospel in methods that are reproducible through oral means; not just verbally or using audio recordings, but pulling from oral Bibles to share Truths conversationally
