Live School is taught on-site at a local church or in a living
room. It trains and disciples nationals to become leaders and
missionaries. It is ideal to use in a "closed" country. The
material was designed by an international coalition of mission
trainers under the leadership of Dr. Bill Taylor and is taught by
practitioners from various parts of the world. The lectures and
course material consist of 240 hours recorded on 93 DVD's.
People can gather in small groups so they are not easily
noticed. The classes can be held in a small room or in a living
room. Each school is conducted by an on-site facilitator appointed
by a local church or recognized leader and trained by Live School
personnel. The Live School curriculum has been accredited by the
South African Theological Seminary (SATS).
Live School is an outcome-based curriculum that is portable,
affordable, and appropriate for many socio-economic levels. It
focuses on the individual's spiritual health and character
development, on Biblical teachings, on cross-cultural ministry, and
on community upliftment. Live School has been translated into
Russian, Swahili and Arabic and is currently being rolled out
in various countries of southern Africa, East Africa, West Africa,
South America, India (in English) the Former Soviet Union and is at
the beginning stages of being rolled out in the Arab world.
Since Live School trains local nationals, there are no or few
cultural and language barriers to overcome, and the teaching is
conducted where a foreign person may not be welcome. Nationals
already have an sphere of influence, a support base, and are in a
position to work toward church planting and community
The uniqueness and strategy of Live School is its vision to
train trainers, who in turn will train others, often living in
difficult places, to become leaders of house churches.
