Learning by doing in Denver

Denver, CO recently advanced to the A-stage. One of the believers gives a snapshot of the cluster’s progress. You can see how the friends are steadily building their capacity, and this is happening through two things: involvement in the training institute courses, and hands-on, on-the-ground experience in teaching.

This cluster is moving to a new level of operation through the institute process and active teaching.

Its recent devotional campaign and intensive Ruhi courses awakened the power of prayer and individual initiative. In one study circle, 3 participants enrolled in the Faith. A Book 6 refresher provided the opportunity to present the Faith to others. In a mini-teaching effort covering a two-weekend span, the friends gave presentations to their friends and acquaintances and also contacted residents of about 100 homes. 11 teaching teams have formed with 14 presentations shared. This occasion provided hands-on experience to the participants and a practical demonstration of what is possible. The atmosphere in the cluster has been taken to a new level of enthusiasm.
