Once he completed the CBT class, he became one of the leaders for the believers’ fellowship, and the believers’ fellowship continue to prosper even though the 2-by-2 team isn’t as involved as they used to be. (Our 2-by-2 teams are actively involved in starting up fellowships and Deaf churches, but after a period of time, when they recognize spiritual growth and maturity in the local leaders, they will step back to allow the ministry to grow organically under the leadership of the local Deaf people.)
This is the beauty of the 2-by-2 ministry. Our teams go out into different areas of the country, identifying and training potential Deaf leaders. Some of them go on to do greater things, taking on the mantle of ministry in their hometowns.
This leader also pointed out two other potential Deaf leaders in his area for the 2-by-2 team to train and equip in the same manner. Praise the Lord for lasting transformation!
