M4 Latvia believes that finding the right church planters is essential to planting a healthy church. Also, a planter, if married, needs the support of their spouse. Through our Assessment process lead by Līva Fokrote, we seek to assess each planter and their spouse before they begin the M4 process. This assessment helps them to learn about themselves and the church they feel lead to plant. We focus on 4 areas, Calling, Character, Competence, and Chemistry. Through this assessment, a recommendation is made to the planter and the planters leadership structure. You can take our online assessment in Latvian here.

M4 Latvia Training takes place in several different ways.

  • First, we have training material translated in Latvian. All individuals going thought M4 are expected to read it to learn more about the church planting process.
  • Second, we have an online environment, Growdly.com where church planters and their team can learn and develop. Growdly allows team to watch videos, process the material and do additional exercises to help them in their planting process.
  • Finally, we have four Learning Communities over the course of 2 years. Each Learning Community focuses on a different topic in the church planting process that planters and their teams need to learn about and process. Finally, the teams create an action plan that will guide their church over the next 6 months.

Church planting is hard work so to help planters in this process we provide monthly mentoring. These mentors help to encourage the planter as well as challenge them in the work they are doing. Mentors review the action plan and provide feedback and critique on their progress. Mentoring helps to raise the effectiveness of church planting more than any other aspect.

What is M4?

M4 is built around the ABC's of church planting: Assessment, Basic Training and Coaching. We have created an online & interview system for assessment that helps leaders find the right church planting candidates. Our basic training, allows for, not just for content, but a unique environment for planters and their teams to guide them during the first 2-3 years of their church plant. Coaching, conducted by experienced planters and leaders, helps teams take their plans from a dream to reality. The content in the training platform has been developed from 30 years of church planting experience in the European context, and it formed around these four topics: Master; Mission; Multiplication and Movement.
