¡³New Christians (NC)
      A simple 26-Page BCL Booklet, Basic Christian Living (BCL), will be given
      to every NC, as soon as h    e/she makes a decision to accept Jesus as
      his/her Savior. This BCL Booklet contains 8 basic lessons, one for each
      week. These 8 lessons are actually 8 essentials for NC: ¡³AssuranceOf

      Salvation, ¡³ QuietTime, ¡³ Lordship, ¡³ Prayer, ¡³ TheWord, ¡³ Fellowship,

       7              8

      ensure that NC be followed up as much as possible , and as often as can be .
      We encourage that followup be carried out on a one-on-one basis.

¡³   Followup Counselors (FC)
      FC are committed Christians who have received an 8-Hour FC Training (FCT) on
      how to use the BCL Booklet to follow up NC and help them grow. During
      the FCT, each FC will be given a 56-Page BCL Handbook, which contains
      methods, illustrations and other details on how to teach the NC the eight
      essentials mentioned above . This FCT is repeatedly held and run year
      round at the YFC Headquarters as well as in different Local Churches.
      Our strategy is to train as many FC as possible so that the chance for a NC
      to be cared for by a FC is highly increased.

¡³    Followup Trainers (FT)
      FT are Pastors, Deacons and Church Leaders committed to train FC.
      Naturally they have all gone through the FCT. They are also required to
      attend an 18-Hour FT Training (FTT) before they can become certified FT. During
      the FTT, each FT will be given an 88-Page BCL Manual, which contains
      administration materials on how to organize and run a FCT. After FTT,
      they can organize FCT in their own Churches and train as many FC as
