What guides and inspires us

in achieving our vision to encourage and accelerate church planting in Switzerland.

 

We are convicted that Switzerland is ripe for hearing the Gospel of Jesus-Christ. That is why we want to participate to a national church planting movement, within a fruitful collaboration with existing unions of churches, in order to give every swiss citizen the opportunity to hear and see the Gospel incarnated through believers in local churches, filled with the love and grace of God.

In order to have healthy and successful churchplants it is vital to find the right churchplanters. A married churchplanter needs the full support of his/her spouse. With our assessment programme, we spend time with the churchplanter and his/her spouse before starting the M4 process. Three areas are assessed: Calling, Character and Competencies.

M4 Suisse Basic Training takes place in several ways.

  • The M4 manuels (tomes 1 and 2) are on sale online for FCH 20.- each via shop.campuspourchrist.ch. Everyone involved in the M4 process must read these books.
  • We also have an online learning environment where churchplanters and their teams can watch training videos, do practical exercises and get help from coaches in the churchplanting process.
  • Finally, we have 4 training modules, i.e. Learning Communities, over the course of 2 years. Each gathering focuses on a different topic in the churchplanting process. At the end of each weekend, all teams create an action plan that will guide their church over the next 6 months.

M4 Church planting is hard work ! To help planters in this process we provide monthly coaching. Our coaches help to encourage the planter, as well as to challenge them in their work: coaches review the action plan and provide feedback and critique on progress. Coaching helps to raise the effectiveness of church planting more than any other aspect. Coaching for M4 Suisse is led by Stefan Fuchser.

What is M4?

M4 is built around the ABC's of church planting: Assessment, Basic Training and Coaching. Assessment is both online and via an in-depth interview, and helps leaders find the right candidates - who then also have a deeper understanding of their gifting. Our basic training provides a rich, interactive learning environment, where planters and their teams produce practical action plans. Coaching then helps teams take their plans from dream to reality. The process lasts 2-3 years. The content in the training platform has been developed from 30 years of church planting experience in the European context, and is formed around four topics: Master, Mission, Multiplication and Movement.
