If you know people involved in discipling believers from other countries, you may be interested in the new diaspora resource being launched this week! The Increase Diaspora Task Group have put a Diaspora Booklet together. It is 60 pages long, full of ideas on things like:

  • Guidelines for starting TEE for Diaspora Communities;
  • How to obtain TEE Resources for Diaspora;
  • Ways for the Group Leaders’ Training for the Diaspora.

We hope it will be a useful and innovative tool.
