Learn how to get started with CCBT – this video will introduce you to the concepts of church based training and walk you through how to complete the curriculum assessment worksheet for your church. This assessment is the first step in seeing how CCBT can best partner with your church.
You may have already completed the curriculum assessment form and reviewed it with us. If you wish to also become a member you can simply complete our online application form. It will be sent to us automatically and we will then work together to determine the best membership level for your church.
Curriculum Assessment Worksheet
You can utilize this worksheet to evaluate your existing discipleship curricula and activities by walking through the discipleship cycle and in each step consider two main areas:
Design – does the curriculum provide discipleship through ordered learning in a community context with accountable application?
Transformation – does the curriculum effect transformation in the disciples in the three areas of head, heart and hands?
