The Lord God Almighty spoke to Günther in a dream in 2002 saying that He would give him three gifts: love, knowledge and technical skills to build houses, which Günther did not entirely understand at first.
“When I woke up I was emotionally and physically drained, yet I did not understand the dream fully as I had never built with bricks and mortar, nor am I technically skilled,” says Günther with a laugh.
To be more precise, Günther is a spiritual house builder having taken to heart the Lord Jesus’ commission in Matthew 28: 19-20 “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you: and Io, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
“I came to understand that the call of God on my life to ‘build houses’ meant to build new organic churches and apostolic hubs (apostolic centers),” says Günther .
Günther says the network aims to train small groups of disciples through online groups, webinars and on-site seminars. “Our goal is to coach disciples in their local environment through simple, practical, strategic outreaches after which they will train new disciples, multiplying kingdom disciples who will ultimately disciple nations.
“While our broader aim is to plant churches and disciple nations, we believe they are the consequences of good discipleship training of individual people, which is best done in a small group. “We start with a group of five-to-ten disciple leaders with the aim of them multiplying disciples in turn.
“Our aim is not to make church members, but to make disciples. Church members are often consumer and knowledge-orientated, while disciples are people and obedience orientated. Church members come, while disciples go.
“We want to develop a viral discipleship movement reproducing disciples by copycat, practical teaching on the gospel, evangelism and prayer,” says Günther.
