Church Planting Cohorts

Church Planting Cohorts

 
 
Why Cohorts?
Research shows that church planters who engage in an in-depth training experience, alongside experienced coaches, are more likely to succeed in their efforts at church planting. This is why every church that partners with V3 participates in learning cohorts (LC). Most Church Planters are trained in how to draw a crowd and preach a good sermon, but few have been equipped for the future the church is facing. Many are starving for guidance and grounded tools on how to cultivate movemental types of church bodies. Our training is holistic, communal, peer-based, and practice oriented.
 

Engaging Cohort
(Year One)

If you are in the pre-plant phase, or are a new plant (within the first three years) then this is your learning cohort. In every endeavor, in every field, knowing and practicing the basics is integral to success. This is a 30 week cohort that will partner you up with 5 to 7 other church planters and an experienced coach. Together you will take the journey from the last week of August to late April in learning the grassroots work of movement. This learning cohort is a per-requisite for partnering and receiving grants from V3. You must have a working knowledge of these competencies before moving forward. This is designed for a planter or co-planters.

Establishing Cohort 
(Year Two)

For those who graduate from Engaging (Year One) we offer a deep dive in Establishing. Moving toward knowing the basics instinctively as you go deeper in each of the eight competencies learned in year one. Year Two's training elevates the level of peer-to-peer learning, allowing planters to experiment in leading coaching calls. Your coach will help you look at these eight themes and competencies with your team and context in mind. This final year of training is designed for a planter and/or co-planters.

Grants

Seed
Grants

 
 
We at V3 desire to support you in every way, which is why we offer church planting grants. Anyone seeking a grant must participate in at least one semester in the learning cohort, receive a green light from an approved assessment center and have at least 25 people involved in their missional community (at least 20 being adults + children). Grants are distributed based on documentation of needs, strength of application, passion to participate in the V3 movement, willingness to become a part of V3/GA (you can maintain your other denominational affiliations), and availability of funds. Our seed grants are designed to help provide concrete start-up expenses. You can ask for up to $30,000.

 

Re-Missioning
Cohort

Re-Missioning
Cohort

We meet leaders regularly who are personally experiencing a theological and missionalogical transition in their own souls. But they find themselves challenged in how to help their church make a transition to a more missional-incarnational approach. We've gathered genuine practitioners who have experienced the hard work of Re-Missioning their established church. If you are looking for training and guidance for this journey, our 20-week cohort might be a good fit for you. This cohort launches in January 2019. It will be a rich and rewarding space with other pastors seeking to do the hands-on work of transitioning their church. We'd love to connect with you. Please fill out this short form and we'll get back to you to set up a chat.

The challenges of ministry can bring to the surface of our lives all kinds of questions, fears, and inadequacies. We don't want you to do it alone. Studies continue to reveal that leaders who participate in personal coaching are more effective and exhibit long-term vitality in their lives. We provide church planters and ministry leaders guidance, direction, development, and methodology for their unique missional context.

 

We currently offer coaching in areas of:

  • Creating a Discipleship Pathway
  • Soul-Care for Kingdom Leaders
  • Personal Spiritual Direction
  • The Art of Spiritual Companioning
  • Multi-Ethnic Planting (coming soon)
  • 5-Fold Ministry in Teams (coming soon)
  • Marketing and Online Content (coming soon)

 

Formational Approach

We don’t want to just transfer information and best ideas. When we converge weekly we seek a formational pathway for engaging the mind, soul, and body. We engage these three parts of our identity though three specific concepts.

Meta-learning (Mind) is the effort of exposing a learner’s mind to a new reality through information that brings awakening. A meta-moment happens when you stumble across something that captures you and gets the gears of your mind moving in new ways. Every week we will ask you to record and share your Meta.

Reflective-learning (Soul) is the effort of excavating deeper learning through good questions. It’s taking a magnifying glass to explore what’s below the surface. Every week we will invite you to reflect on and record what brings you conflict, clarity or confusion.

Experiential-learning (Body) is the effort of creating fresh learning in the  body through local practice; taking active steps. You see, true learning doesn’t take place until we do something with it. We must not be afraid to try, to make bold attempts and fail. Weekly you will record your next step in application.
