The Holy Spirit is the Hidden Mover behind all personal life transformation and ministry fruitfulness.
Though we know the Bible says to walk in the Spirit, the majority of Christians are illiterate (and even nervous) about how to practically live in His power. The result is lives marred by continued brokenness and ministries plagued by fruitlessness. In contrast, believers from Acts understood the ancient path of the Spirit Walk. That extraordinary power was not just for them, but for us also.
Gleaning insights from implementation in dozens of Acts-like movements around the world, Spirit Walk “lifts the hood and shows us the real secret behind apostolic, disciple-multiplying movements” (Neil Cole, author of Organic Church). Whether you need a movement of God in your personal life or in your ministry, this book takes you through the timeless principles of the Bible.
The Spirit Walk path has helped thousands of ordinary people shift from
a fundamental reliance upon methods and self-helps to the essential reliance upon the Spirit who empowers these. Spirit Walk reminds us of the ancient path and explains it in a practical discipline that you can remember daily.
Discover how to start on the journey of being filled again and again by the Spirit. But more importantly, learn how to stay full of the Spirit as you abide in Christ throughout the day, and your life.

In 2001, the Southern Baptist International Mission Board began tracking an Asia–based Church Planting Movement, a rapid multiplication of new church starts, that exceeded anything they had witnessed in the organization's 156–year history. In the decade that followed, the movement accelerated producing tens of thousands of new churches and hundreds of thousands of new baptized believers. By the end of the decade, this movement of God had seen 1.7 million baptisms and 150,000 new church starts.
Ying Kai and his wife Grace, Chinese–American Southern Baptist missionaries, developed the outreach and church planting program that they called Training for Trainers or T4T as a means of addressing the overwhelming challenge of an unreached people group numbering tens of millions of lost souls. Rather than simply doing evangelism, or discipleship, or church planting, the Kais felt led of God to train multiplying generations of national partners who in turn would train generations of the same.
In T4T: A Discipleship Re–Revolution fellow–Baptist missionary and author Steve Smith captures the story, principles, and spirit of Ying Kai's T4T. In this engaging 350–page book, Smith describes how God is at work in the fastest growing church–planting movement in the world today, and how its principles can be applied in your own ministry. T4T has already proven itself by adapting well to many other ministries, infusing them with reproducibility that enhances rather than competes with their own distinctive kingdom contribution.
Built on New Testament kingdom principles, T4T integrates evangelism, discipleship, church planting, and leadership development in a seamless process that has proven effective in multiplying new communities of faith. Though T4T was born in Asia, it is now bearing fruit in the U.S., as practitioners in Texas, Indiana, North Carolina and other states report multiplying generations of new believers, disciples and church starts. Learn more about T4T from its dedicated website www.T4TOnline.org.
