Pastor Phil Helfer (pictured) of the Los Altos Grace Brethren Church in Long Beach, California, has just returned from a ten-day Asia trip he and church-planter Neil Cole took, teaching three different groups about Life Transformation Groups and teaching organic church principles.
An e-mail from them as they were traveling home said, “[We]are returning from a long, exhausting, but profitable time in Hong Kong and China. We did two Greenhouse Trainings and also spoke to a large conference. In China we did a Greenhouse Training for 200 and saw people saved every time.”
Helfer will share about his trip in the Los Altos morning worship this Sunday. On the weekend of November 7-9, Los Altos will be hosting the same Greenhouse Training that Neil and Phil did overseas.
These trainings are done all over the world by Church Multiplication Associates (www.cmaresources.org). They are called Organic Greenhouse Trainings and there are two components to the training–Story 1 and Story 2 which build on each other. Both will be offered simultaneously during the upcoming event at LAGBC:
