  • Next slide has the one-liner for the Introduction: “ What comes from the mouth is heard by the ears. What comes from the heart is heard by the heart .” — Native American proverb. Meaning for researchers : Focus your research on one of your deep concerns—a matter of the heart. Then your findings won’t be just talk. People will sense that your research is meaningful and they will be moved by what you discover.
  • Meaning for researchers: Focus your research on one of your deep concerns. Introduction. Illustration on previous slide.
  • Text p. 7 & 156.
  • Text p. 7 & 165.
  • Step 1. Pray constantly. Note that the “prayer rug” runs all the way up the steps as it must run all the way through the Breakthrough process.
  • Next slide has the one-liner for Step 1: Prayer and research are not substitutes for each other. Meaning for researchers: Research without prayer is arrogant. Prayer without research is (or can be) unthinking.

  • Step 2. Frame Your Issue
  • Next slide has the one-liner for Step 2: Instructions on a seed packet: “Plant three or four pumpkin seeds per hill. When the plants are about three inches high, remove all but the hardiest one.” Meaning for researchers: Do not get distracted by too many incidental questions. Stick to your main research question.

  • Step 3. Grab for All the Help You Can Get. (Note that “Step 3” isn’t really a step; it’s a handrail that accompanies all the remaining steps.)
  • Next slide has the one-liner for Step 3: Build your own house but don’t make your own blocks. Meaning for researchers: Capitalize on the experience and the writing of other people. Do not pretend you are the first person to face your problem.

  • Step 4. Design Your Field Research Strategy
  • Next slide has the one-liner for Step 4: “I see people. They look like trees walking around.” Mark 8:24 Meaning for researchers: As you begin your research, you can already see some things but you cannot see them clearly enough to be sure what they mean. You have ideas and hunches about your practical concern and your insight question. However, you will need a “second touch” (more research and prayer) before you can see everything clearly.

Illustration on previous slide.
  • Step 5. Get R.E.A.L. Like Step 3, Step 5 is not a “step” but a handrail to hold during the rest of the Breakthrough process. “R.E.A.L.” means Recognize your assumptions, Estimate your time, Appreciate accountability, and Leave distractions alone.
  • Next slide has the one-liner for Step 5: Heads up! Get real! Meaning for researchers: Do not assume that the dangers that hit other people’s research projects will somehow bypass you. Watch out for them.

  • Step 6. Use Great Questions. The most important research skill and the key to the whole Breakthrough process.
  • Next slide has the one-liner for Step 6: Good questions are never written. They are always re-written. Meaning for researchers: Preparing field questions that tell you what you really want to know is one of the most difficult things you will ever do. No one does it right the first time.

  • Step 7. Listen for All You Are Worth
  • Next slide has the one-liner for Step 7: The one who is patient will see the eyes of the snail.—Ghanaian proverb Meaning for researchers: Do not poke and prod your respondents. Let them relax and show you what you have been waiting to see.

  • Step 8. Draw Solid Conclusions
  • Next slide has the one-liner for Step 8: “‘Tiz better tew know nuthin’ than to know what ain’t so.”—Kin Hubbard Meaning for researchers: Learn how to distinguish a solid conclusion from a “cracked” one, and do not endanger yourself and others by promoting conclusions that are not solid.
  • Meaning for researchers: Learn how to distinguish a solid conclusion from a “cracked” one, and do not endanger yourself and others by promoting conclusions that are not solid. Step 8. Illustration on previous slide.
  • Step 9: Take Inspired Action
  • Next slide has the one-liner for Step 9: Horns that are stuck onto a cow do not grow.—Zulu proverb Meaning for researchers: Make sure your recommendations grow naturally out of your data. Don’t pretend the findings prove your position if they do not.
  • Meaning for researchers: Make sure your recommendations grow naturally out of your data. Don’t pretend the findings prove your position if they do not. Step 9. Illustration on previous slide.
  • Step 10. Enjoy Watching God’s Breakthrough. Breakthrough insights from the research should have led to breakthrough changes in ministry approach and/or activity, and those changes should be leading toward a breakthrough in ministry impact.
  • Next slide has the one-liner for Step 10: The proof of the pudding is in the eating. Meaning for researchers: The value of your whole project comes down to its impact in practice, the way God uses it to provide the breakthrough you have been praying for.
