WHAT WE DO

TRAINING AND RESOURCING 

We want to help you spark a disciple-making movement in your church and community by training and resourcing you in the area of mobilization. Groundswell helps you identify potential workers and mobilize them by using a simple approach we call our mobilization pipeline.

 

We train pastors and leaders to mobilize their disciple makers and pioneer leaders through the series of courses listed below. Feel free to click on each link to learn more about each course.

MOBILIZING DISCIPLE MAKERS

This is the foundation and starting point of the mobilization pipeline. We want to help you identify the disciples in your church and mobilize them to become disciple makers! This is a crucial part of the process. Imagine your church filled with women and men equipped, excited, and ready to make disciples in their sphere of influence.

COURSES WE OFFER

MOBILIZING DISCIPLE MAKERS

This strategic, 6-session course provides focused training on how to create a culture of mobilization and disciple making in your church. This course is THE foundational course of Groundswell and explains the principles behind mobilizing more disciple makers. 

LAUNCHING DISCIPLESHIP GROUPS

This tactical 4-week course provides focused training on mobilizing more disciple makers through the resource of Banding Together, a proven process field tested in hundreds of churches. We offer this course in the evenings to encourage pastors to bring key lay leaders into the process.

 

BUILDING A DISCIPLESHIP PATHWAY

A discipleship pathway is a strategic, comprehensive, and clear process for making disciples for kingdom impact. It is also the most important system in your church. In this 6-session cohort, we provide the tools for developing a customized blueprint for making disciples and mobilizing disciple makers.

 
 

MOBILIZING PIONEER LEADERS

This is the next stage in the mobilization pipeline. Disciple makers invest in a few, but pioneer leaders are called to a larger group. We help pastors and leaders identify their pioneers and mobilize them to reach neighborhoods and networks, launching missional communities, microchurches, outreach ministries, faith-based non-profits, and more.

LIVE SENT

This 5-session course is designed to help lay leaders discover their pioneer calling. Each session unpacks one of the four callings of God in the Bible and helps participants learn how to discern His voice more clearly. This course can be self-directed or combined coaching and group learning. 

MOBILIZING PIONEER LEADERS

The world is changing. Now more than ever, we need a growing wave of pioneers for the new frontier. There are pioneers sitting in churches that need identified, trained, and mobilized to start new ministries. This 4-session cohort will give pastors the tools needed to identify their pioneers and consider new approaches to impacting their community.

 

PIONEER BASIC TRAINING

This 9-month virtual residency walks through 3 distinct modules that establish personal and missional rhythms and the development of a project field guide.   Pioneers will go through this process in groups of 8-12 with an expert “trail guide” who will facilitate the learning and coach participants towards a customized action plan.
