This entry is part 114 of 118 in the series Diagnosis, Dialogue, Decision: A DMin Project

Yoido staff pastors begin their work day with an hour or more of prayer and spend the remainder of their time in ministry visitation accompanied by their lay leaders.[1] While classes are available, the majority of lay training is done in demonstration, modeling and coaching rather than through training programs. Lay leaders continue to visit on their own during the week, building evangelistic community with non-Christians and strengthening the relational network with Christians. Staff focus on equipping laity for this ministry through modeling.
