Your offline strategy will be fueled by your DMM training. As seekers discover, share, and obey, you’ll want to meet them in person.
Consider the example Critical Path in the previous step:
The critical stepping stones 5-12 above make up the offline portion of the Critical Path. So your offline strategy will fill-in some of the details for how you will go about fulfilling these offline steps. Your offline plan may note the roles needed, the security protocol required, and/or the Gospel-sharing tools or skills to prioritize. Again, your DMM training and vision, as well as your context and (ongoing) experience will significantly influence your offline strategy. Below are more considerations and helpful resources that you may find helpful in crafting your offline strategy that will help seekers move forward.
The more hands a seeker passes through, the stickier it can get. It is important that you minimize the number of hand-offs of a contact because it isn’t usually successful. These are real people who are risking their lives to trust you. If you are faced with a situation where a disciple maker is no longer able to meet with a contact, that hand-off to a new disciple maker should be handled with great care, love and prayer.
