…. they were unschooled, ordinary men …. they had been with Jesus …. the crippled man healed standing with them – Acts 4:13,14
I’m amazed by the extraordinary numbers that Pastor Ying Kai and Grace have discipled and multiplied by the grace of God. The power of God through just one couple who sows the seed of God’s Word. The beauty of what can be achieved with the Lord by following His simple plan.
“Jesus did’nt say let them be my follower, or be my church member, or fellowship member, but be my disciple. So we will train everybody to become disciple until they can train other people ….
When they train other people, they can more understand Heavenly Father heart and give them more heart to want to share gospel with other people to come to Jesus Lord”
– Pastor Ying Kai
From Mission Frontiers (2013):
“Ying and Grace began by training one class of thirty believers. They taught the trainees that each of them had a unique story to tell of how they met Jesus. They trained them to tell their story and helped them to identify five people they would share with in the following week.
The next week seventeen of the thirty trainees reported sharing their story, and one farmer had shared with eleven people. The following week Ying raised the level of accountability and allowed only those who were sharing their story to continue with the training. Two months later, the trainees had started twenty small groups. After six months there were 327 small groups and 4,000 newly baptized believers scattered across seventeen towns. Within twelve months, there were 908 house churches with more than 12,000 new Christians.
One old farmer who had never before planted a church started twelve house churches in two months and 110 in the first year. He began every day reading his Bible from 5 a.m. to 7 a.m. Then he worked in the fields until 5 p.m., at which point he went home for dinner and family time. At 7 p.m. he went back out again, and he worked in “God’s fields” until midnight.
In another town a 67-year-old woman became a Christian and in one year led more than sixty families to become believers.
In another example, Ying lost touch with a Christian factory worker he had trained. After six months, he learned that the worker had been transferred to another large factory with ten thousand workers. During those six months, the worker had started seventy small groups and seen ten generations of reproduction (churches planting churches).
By the year 2003, Ying and Grace were training 300 to 400 believers each month …………..
In the most recent survey of the Kais’ ministry, more than 1.7 million people have come to faith and been baptized. Every month trained workers start two thousand house churches and small groups in villages, urban high-rise apartments and factories. Over 140,000 churches have been started in what is currently the world’s fastest growing church planting movement.” – Mission Frontiers

How to share your faith – Pastor Ying Kai
Mark 4:20 (NIV)
Others, like seed sown on good soil, hear the word, accept it, and produce a crop—some thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times what was sown.
2 Timothy 2:2 (NIV)
And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.
Paul –> Timothy –> reliable people (without Paul) –> others (without Paul & Timothy) –> multiplication & propagation
The Ying Kai Story
1. What do I say ?
2. Who do I say it to ?
3. What makes you think I am going to do this ?
4. What if I do tell my friend my story and what if he says yes ?
