Transformational Learning Cohorts

Are designed to help Creo churches move from aspiration to implementation. This is accomplished by giving pastors direct access to the best possible resources, facilitating learning environments that are focused on actionable strategies and plans, and by connecting leaders in ongoing low-control, high-accountability relationships with other Creo pastors.

The following four cohorts will be launching in fall of 2016:

1. Future Travelers
Explores the paradigm of church as an apostolic movement, equipping leaders to confidently launch a movement and navigate change. (Led by Alan Hirsch and Alex Absalom.)

2. Building a Disciplemaking Culture
Helps you clarify and design your church’s unique disciplemaking language, vision, practices and strategy in your local context. (Led by Dave Rhodes and the team from Auxano.)

3. Building a Leadership Pipeline
Focuses on how to design, build and begin implementing a leadership pipeline. (Led by Mac Lake and the team from Auxano.)

4. Becoming a Multiplying Church
Focuses on helping churches identify where they are as a multiplying church and what’s needed for greater effectiveness. (Led by Bill Couchenour and EFCA ministry leaders.)

Each cohort will meet together on location three times: October 17-18, 2016, January 16-17, 2017, and May 22-23, 2017, with three monthly video coaching sessions between cohort meetings. Each cohort will gather at the EFCA national office in Minneapolis, Minnesota for their October ’16 and May ’17 meetings, with a yet to be determined location in January.
