Sustainable Church Multiplication exists to: 

Biblically and simply train Christ followers in their local context to love and obey Christ for going and making disciples and doing effective ministry.

Central Ministry Focus is:
To develop and teach, through on-site workshops, biblically and spiritually equipped Christ followers empowered to lead and reproduce generational discipleship that go and do effective ministry in their local context forming gatherings of believers that are self propagating, self governing and self supporting and that will be followed up and evaluated for future training and theological consistency.
