Spontaneous Evangelism & Discipleship

The results we see from those trained in Simply The Story (STS) are most exciting. We list just a few on this page. In the Fall of 2010, we commissioned teams with outside observers to gather facts “on location” and to verify the findings of the following reports on this page:

We welcome inquiries about the details of these findings, including the methods used to obtain them.

We feature results from India and Africa on this page. The results are typical of the positive responses and spontaneous replication we see in other countries.   
Story_Discussion_Ireland_1_Small
It is interesting to note that, because of the varied spiritual needs in different countries, the responses to the Word of God, when it is understood, differ.  

For instance, in India, we see a high rate of salvations and church plants, while, in Africa, we see measurable deepening of spiritual understanding and victorious Christian living.
However, in both countries, the positive responses relate directly to the learning of Scripture, clarity of understanding Scripture, and the eagerness and ability to share Scripture with others.

STS Results After Four Years

“We learned 120 stories   in 4 months of school.”

STS Oral Bible School students 018_Africa_Men_Learning_Story3say, “We learned 120 stories in 4 months of school.” and "This style helps you to preach, even if you not been to school. It's changing lives in villages.”

We commissioned fact-finding teams to travel to India and Africa to gather data and testimonies from those who have attended STS workshops or STS Oral Bible Schools (STS-OBS).

This report documents the impact of STS in a few of the 56 countries in which it has been planted.

General Report of STS Impact in India

In 2008, our Indian leadership gathered astounding results regarding 50 villagers who attended one of four different 3-day Simply The Story (STS) workshops. The One Year Report tracked the attendees at one, three, six and twelve months following that workshop. Two years later we felt led to send a team to follow up on some of the 50 original attendees whose effectiveness in ministry we had tracked back in 2008.

[A team went to Africa in Sept of 2010 and did an in-depth data collection from students of three of the seven Oral Bible schools active in Kenya at that time. As well, those who had been trained in STS at workshops over the past three years were interviewed.]

The Team

The International Director of The God's Story Project, along with an independent representative from an international consulting firm, McKinsey and Company, and a video/audio technician traveled to South Eastern India to verify and document the long-term effects of STS. Some of the 50 India attendees documented in the One Year Report live in this region.

The representative from McKinsey and Company has lived in India for seven years and provided outside observation to maintain objectivity during the information-gathering process. The video/audio technician recorded all discussions for future verification if necessary. Translation was necessary.

Description of People interviewed

The people interviewed were diverse. They ranged from literate to functionally illiterate and non-literate. They were men, women, single and married, some with children. Ages ranged from ten years old to people in their seventies. The team interviewed pastors, evangelists, and lay people all with varied lengths of times of being believers.

Bible Passages, Accuracy and Depth

People were interviewed in groups of three. No two people in a group told the same Bible passage and a combination of Old and New Testament passages were shared. When a story was told the first time, without any review, their telling generally ranged from 65-85% accurate. A few were better than 85% accurate, and none were less than 65%. Typically, some details were left out, and on a few occasions details were added. All the people knew the main parts of the Bible story they chose to do.

After approximately five minutes of review, everyone showed marked improvement so that accuracy ranged from 70 to 95%.

It was very clear people had spent time in the past learning Bible passages and could easily share several passages without review.

Percentages are approximate due to translation, as at times the translator struggled to find the right English word, but the storytellers clearly evidenced knowledge of their Bible story.

After people shared their Bible story, we asked them to tell us what they saw in the story. Every person was able to share at least one Spiritual observation, or more, that was based on the story and Biblically provable.

Interview Proceedings

Most discussions were generally conducted in groups of three, sometimes less.

None interviewed had prior knowledge of the questions we asked or that they would be doing a Bible passage for us.

Some people selected were those documented in the 2008 One Year report and some were random selections of people who had attended other STS workshops.

Spiritual Results of STS

All shared testimonies of results using Bible stories in evangelistic situations. Many expressed gratefulness for having the STS training, and how it has helped them to go deep and to understand the Scriptures.

Having traveled to India many times over the past seven years, I see a measurable improvement in people's knowledge of the Bible. As well, I observed that the specific style of discussion, which occurs in STS trainings and Bible schools, enables people to experience sustainable growth in learning and applying the Scriptures with minimal or no Western influence.

These people now can deeply discuss biblical issues. But as well, when asked why they believe a certain way, they refer to information in the Bible instead of having no reason or saying, “some one told me that."

Amazing Results: One Year Report

The God’s Story Project – India

Data collected during first year after graduation from

Simply The Story (STS) training in South India

ALL Graduates are

Illiterate or Preferred Oral Communicators!

Simply The Story (STS) Indian instructors trained people for 3 days and gave graduates (one per village) a solar-powered audio-playerSTS_Graduation_Certificates6_320 formatted with God’s Story, 85 added story-told Bible stories, and a New Testament - all in their mother tongue. (Players with the content are called “WordLights.”)

Statistics below cover the first 50 STS graduates who received these players.

During a six-week period, four workshops were held in different locations.

At each workshop many villages were represented by an average of three attendees per village.

Not included in the above statistics is the impact on the lives and ministries of the literates and non-literates who attended those four STS workshops, but who did not receive a solar player. Nor seen above is the quantity of people led to Jesus by those saved during this one-year period.

Reports from other workshops done in India among literates, semi-literates and illiterates show that they too see a huge jump in salvations and growth from the stories learned and skills gained from this training. City and village, workers from outside India and nationals send similar responses.

Amazing Results: One Year Report

How Data is Gathered

Motivated literate pastors and lay people who have attended an STS workshop, volunteer to gather illiterates and oral communicators from various villages for a 3-day STS workshop. These unpaid, volunteer organizers act as registrars. (Data was collected by 4 registrars, one each for 4 workshops held in July-August 07.)

After a workshop, registrars interviewed and collected data from 12 to 14 graduates who received a WordLight. Each graduate represented a different village. These one-page profile reports established the “before” of these church planters’ effectiveness.  Later, each graduate was interviewed at one month, three months, six months and one year after STS education. 

The usage of the solar-powered WordLight, and impact of STS skills on their ministries, was monitored in 19 categories. This data went to our country director and to The God’s Story Project headquarters. Gathering this information was a daunting task for registrars, but they saw the importance of documentation. One registrar told us, “This is the hardest work I’ve ever done!”

Besides the statistics, the registrars collected testimonies from graduates and from those impacted by the stories.

Due to the sensitive location of these workshops, the names of the graduates, villages and language are not distributed in printed or electronic form. Upon request, a summary of the results can be obtained. All of the individual reports and spreadsheets containing this comprehensive study may be viewed at TGSP headquarters.

After one year, the TGSP Director who led these workshops went back to visit in person these graduates he had trained. “They ran to me with joy. All wanted to tell me what had happened. Then we had a meeting. I told one STS story. Then they told Bible stories and asked the questions. They taught me! Oh it was a blessed time.”

Should we be surprised at this amazing report showing 100-fold multiplication, 50 graduates saw 5,372 salvations, even in the first 6 months? No! Folks. This is God’s Word in an understandable form!  “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”  Isaiah 55:11

Multiplication

Multiplication In Africa


In 2007, we first trained Bramuel in Simply The Story. He soon became the East Africa Director for The God’s Story Project. In 2010. Bramuel was selected by the leaders in International Orality Network, a movement to promote the utilization of oral strategies, to represent the movement by speaking at the Lausanne Cape Town 2010 Congress on World Evangelism. That makes Bramuel 2nd generation.

Bramuel trained Pastor Richard, who then became a 3rd generation trainer and practitioner.

Richard leads STS workshops in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania using a staff he trained.  His staff are 4th generation trainers.

Richard’s staff set up and oversee multiple STS Oral Bible Schools in Kenya. The students in the school are 5th generation practitioners and trainers.

Most of the students are pastors and evangelists. On their trips home, they minister to their congregations using stories STS style, and also use stories in outreach. In a data finding trip in Sept 2010, interviews done by outside observers were done with the students who are already ministering using STS. The students testified of people in their flocks using stories to evangelize and disciple others. That means that the flock members are 6th generation STS practitioners.

As well, the students told of people in their flocks who were telling stories to people who were using stories to minister to others. That is the 7th generation!

All this in 3 ½ years.

MUMBAI From J S

In October, 2007 TGSP trained 125 of JS’s leaders in Simply The Story workshops in Mumbai, India.  Before this time these leaders had been adding 200 new believers monthly to their cell groups. During our April trip to India to certify instructors for STS, J S showed us the results below.

He kept saying, “It is not just the 50% rise in new believers that has us excited, look at the increase in leadership and cell groups!”

South India

Great Great Great Grandchildren in Nine Months!
In Brief

The team from the USA who first brought STS to India is the “Father”: In Sept 2006 we trained our TGSP India Director Dr. S. M. Mark how to do Simply the Story. In that workshop he learned how to tell interesting "pure" Bible stories, nothing added, nothing left out, and how to do inductive Bible study "oral style."
Son, Mark: In Oct / Nov Mark trained some of his leaders.

Grandsons Mark’s Team: Since then that team has been going out leading STS trainings in North and South India.

Great Grandsons, those Mark’s team had taught at SIC: In mid-May 2007 Mark and his new team led 60 pastors of the South India Church (SIC) in a 2-day workshop. Six were "saved"!!!! Later in May one of the SIC workshop attendees wrote the letter below telling his testimony of learning and using STS.

Great Great Grandsons, pastor taught by those from SIC: He also sent the testimonies of two pastors he just trained.

Great Great Great Grandsons: those two pastors gave their testimonies of people they are reaching!

More Details of the Same
We shared Simply The Story (STS), with leaders, including Mark, our India Director of The God’s Story Project.  (Since our USA staff trained Mark, for this report, we will call him “SON.”) In Aug / Sept Mark and the rest learned how to tell Bible stories and learned how to teach others using inductive this STS “oral style” Bible study. In Oct / Nov Mark, our “son” trained some of his leaders. (SON TEACHES GRANDSONS)

After that, Mark and the leaders he trained began traveling and leading STS workshops in North and South India.  In mid-May, Mark's new team led 60 pastors of the South India Church in a 2-day workshop. Six pastors were "saved"!!!!

Shortly after that workshop, one of the workshop attendees (a “grand son”) wrote the letter below telling his testimony of using STS.  He also sent the testimonies of two pastors he just trained, and they gave their testimonies! (great grand sons).

From sons to great grandsons in a very short time (less than a year to be exact).  All are more effectively presenting God's Word. As well, they are seeing more fruit that than they have ever before seen, and the seed of that fruit is growing and bearing fruit!


Total Details of the Same
To Dear Beloved Rev Mark (these testimonies were sent by Pastor N.P. who was the one we call Mark’s GRANDSON.)

Greetings to you in the Precious name of our LORD and Saviour JESUS CHRIST.

I am Pastor N.P. South India. (Specific names and places are withheld due for safety of these pastors.)

I am very happy to write this letter with a deep sense at gratitude to God and heartful thanks to the GOD story Project's India.

Pastor N.P's Background

When I was pastoring in a C.S.I Church in XXX City. GOD called me for a specific purpose that is in Matt: 28: 19, 20. I was obedient to this call I left the Pastoral Service in C.S.I Church. I committed my life for GOD'S will. GOD as given me the ambition to go and preach the Gospel to the Gentiles & unreached people group's, Who are not known the name of JESUS. Rom; 15,16. So now I am concentrating Evangelistic Ministry in the unreached villages & Educating and equipping young people for the Gospel with simply the story and we are encouraging them to go and share the word of GOD to their own people like School friends, Relatives Family, Friend's & Neighbors. We thank GOD for the Vision and Mission, which GOD has given to the God's Story Projects India.

The people are giving good response for his preaching. Praise GOD for all His guidance in our lives.
