Training Overview

Our six, quarterly online training sessions will cover the following topics:

Session 1: Lifelong Development

Six hours of introduction to lifelong development of a Christ-follower and the creating of spiritual rhythms and practices that sustain growth and build the capacity to better recognize God forming work.

Session 2: Coaching & Formation

Six hours of skills training related to coaching and mentoring through the IDEA Coaching Pathway, and the TRAC Coaching System. Insight into how God shapes each of us over time and the three core stages of development.


Session 3: Discipleship Path

Six hours related to the construction of a discipleship pathway for all believers that includes ongoing growth related to Christ, community and character. Models and postures are reviewed and a contextualized pathway is developed.

Session 4: Apprenticing Communities

Six hours related to creating communities and groups of growth and practices, living out the life of Christ together. Focus is on each person developing a “front yard mission” and recognizing the clarity comes together in the midst of community.


Session 5: Leadership Pipeline

Six hours related to developing a pathway between discipleship and leadership in the local church setting. Understanding the story of influence and leadership, and helping individuals better recognize how God has shaped each person for influence and a unique contribution.

Session 6: Development Culture

Six hours related to architecting change and a culture of developing and discipling believers. Moving the church beyond attractions and programmatic focus and onto mission and the making passionate disciples who learn to thrive in the today’s culture.

The Local Church Cohort may be your important next step in developing leaders and refocusing the culture of your church around discipling apprentices of Jesus.
