The future of the church is found in the few.

As church leaders, many of us have been leading with the right intentions, but relying on a model that is based on the FUNCTIONAL GREAT COMMISSION.

“Go into all the world and make more WORSHIP ATTENDERS, baptizing them in the name of SMALL GROUPS, and teaching them to VOLUNTEER A COUPLE OF TIMES A MONTH.” Ouch!

It’s time as leaders of the church to shift our paradigms and change our models. Join the Future Church Virtual Cohort starting in April 2022 for a season of learning, growing, and collaborating, as you become the church that God dreamed you to be!

What is the Future Church Virtual Cohort?

The Future Church Virtual Cohort is a 10-session coached experience that will walk your team through a dynamic experience [tools + process] to get break-thru in disciple-making clarity and visionary execution.

Through a combination of clear, practical video teaching, downloadable tools, and monthly virtual coaching sessions the Future Church Virtual Cohort will provide a fresh perspective that empowers you and your team to design a better future for your church.

Shift Your Paradigm with Fresh Insights

The insights at the foundation of the Future Church Online Course are based on Will Mancini’s new book, Future Church: 7 Laws of Real Church Growth, released in December of 2020.

Every member of your team will receive a copy of Future Church (maximum of 5 team members). If you’re interested in purchasing additional copies of Future Church, you can order from Baker Book House below, which offers a 40% bulk discount and free shipping on orders of 20 or more.

Learn Through Video Teaching
Includes video teachings from Will Mancini, Dave Rhodes, and other members of the Future Church Co. team. You’ll watch these videos with your team before the live coaching sessions so you’re prepared and ready to discuss.
Get the Coaching You Need
The best athletes in the world all have coaches. Why do many church leaders assume they don’t need a coach, too? You’ll join a cohort of no more than 5 churches and get coaching from experienced Future Church Co. team members.
Design a Better Future Together
You’ll want to set aside time outside of the virtual coaching sessions for your team to wrestle through the implications of what you’re learning. We’ll provide tools. direction, and coaching to help you maximize your strategic ministry planning.

Stop simply trying to survive and start designing a better future together.

The culture-shaking shifts that took place in 2020 accelerated trends that were already evident in churches across North America—fewer people are attending weekend services and the people who DO attend … attend less often. These trends have strategic and practical implications for every church and every church leader.

This exclusive cohort experience is available to your church for $5000 for up to 5 members of your team.

The 75-minute cohort sessions are scheduled for Tuesdays from 12noon-1:15pm (eastern) on Apr 12, Apr 26, May 10, May 24, June 14, July 12, Aug 16, Sept 13, Sept 27, and Oct 11.

Your team—your entire church!—will benefit from the Future Church Virtual Cohort for years to come. This is your opportunity to make the pivot from reactive to proactive in your ministry planning.

What Past Participants Are Saying

Danny Schulz, Sun City Church

If you really want to know deep down in your soul that God is proud of the discipleship work you’re doing, this is a roadmap for that. I deeply want to be doing the right thing for when I stand before God. That responsibility weighs on me and I want to know that we’re doing everything we can to really make disciples.

Dr. Craig Oliver, Elizabeth Baptist Church

Our weekly scorecard focused almost exclusively on giving and attendance—we did not have data that was reflective of the whole discipleship process. I had to own that problem and not just own the problem, but be bold enough to go through the process of correcting the problem.

Kimber Liu, Engedi Church

The challenge between assimilation and multiplication—we’re already feeling that tension. I’ve appreciated being able to use the tools—it’s giving me some traction in areas where we’ve been a little stuck. I’m really dialing in to how it all fits together.

Sean Walker, The Bayou Church

Every week, the video teachings were putting words to things we’d felt deep in our stomachs but weren’t able to articulate. Now we had the language and the tools to see it and the empowerment to lead where we knew the future was headed.

VIRTUAL COHORT FAQ

Got questions? We’ve got you covered. Click the questions below to find the answers.

We are limiting this cohort to 5 church teams. Two of our Future Church Co. team members, Jessie Cruickshank and David Reichley, will be your coaches throughout the experience. You’ll definitely get personal attention!

The cost for your team of up to 5 people is $5,000 for the complete process. And we’re happy to set up a billing schedule that fits your church best—monthly, quarterly, or all at once!

The cohort is definitely designed for a team to go through it together. Each church team can have up to 5 participants. You’ll attend the cohort sessions together and then, in between cohort sessions, your team will work through tools and exercises together.

The ten 75-minute cohort sessions are scheduled for Tuesdays from 12noon – 1:15pm (eastern) on the dates listed below.

4 SPRING SESSIONS: April 12, April 26, May 10, May 24
3 SUMMER SESSIONS: June 14, July 12, August 16
3 FALL SESSIONS: September 13, September 27, October 11

We’ve found that this is an ideal number for each team as they work through the concepts and tools together. If you choose to include others in your sessions outside of the cohort meetings, that’s up to you.

Yes. To get the most out of this process, we recommend that you plan to spend at least one team working session between each cohort session. Your working sessions will vary in length depending on your team, but it’s best to plan 2-3 hours for your team to work together in between cohort sessions.

We recommend that anyone from your team who is available should attend the cohort sessions, even if all of you can’t make it. In the event that none of your team members can join one of the cohort sessions, they will be recorded and shared with all of the church teams. However, you can only miss up to 2 of the 10 sessions to continue with the process.

Absolutely. If you attended the Future Church Co. Collective event in January of 2022, you got a glimpse into our processes and tools. In this cohort, you will experience a much larger section of our church consulting process than we were able to present at the Collective.

You and your team will get a complete overview of the Funnel Fusion process & the 5 Master Tools. The content of this cohort is based on Future Church and the 7 Laws of Real Church Growth.

Your team will engage in robust collaboration around developing and implementing a shared vision for your church’s future.

You’ll also develop (or evaluate and update) your Mission Statement. In addition, your team will define Mission Measures for your church, which will articulate what success looks like in your specific context.

Our prayer and intention is that the cohort will inspire a paradigm shift in your team so you can design a better future of your church.

That’s great! A couple of sessions of the cohort will give you fresh insight and tools for evaluating your current Vision Frame. You could end up making no changes, slight tweaks, or significant overhauls to different elements of your frame in the process.

Most of the content and focus of the cohort is not focused on the Vision Frame. So if you have a Vision Frame, you have a head start … and your experience in the cohort will empower you to use your Vision Frame more effectively in the future.

Other Future Church Co. team members may be involved at times, but David Reichley and Jessie Cruickshank will be the primary Future Church Co. team members who will be your coaches throughout the entire cohort.

Jessie and David will also be available via email between sessions if you have questions as you go through the process.

Only 5 church teams will be accepted into the cohort. That’s pretty exclusive.

In all likelihood, we will offer cohorts like this in the future. Right now, though, this cohort of 5 church teams is the only opportunity like this that is currently on our calendar. If you choose not to be a part of this cohort, we can’t guarantee the next time it will be offered.

Yes. The cohort sessions will be recorded so your team can revisit them in the future. If you’d like other members of your church team to watch the recordings (beyond your team of 5 that will be a part of the live cohort sessions), that would be just fine. You’ll have access to the recordings for 12 months after the process is completed.

Now is the time to rethink how you do church.

This exclusive cohort experience is available to your church for $5000 for up to 5 members of your team.
