Q: What’s a microchurch planter?
A: Microchurch planters are missionaries who start microchurches. If you have a passion for people who don't have a relationship with Jesus, one way to reach them with the gospel is to start a Discovery Bible Study which can become a microchurch. If God has called you to do so, microchurch planters are trained and supported by the Yeshua Society. You'll learn about Disciple Making Movements, Discovery Bible Studies, the importance of prayer, making the church relevant in your community, how to recognize to whom God is sending you and much more. More importantly, you'll become a disciple of Jesus who makes more disciples as you are used by God to expand the Kingdom.

- What does the passage tell us about us?
- Now that we know the passage, how will it change our life?
- Who do we know that we can tell what we just learned?
