Frequently Asked Questions
How does this course work?
At the beginning of the week, you will receive a 15-20 minute content video. This video will cover information/ideas relating to that week's session and will often include an exercise or worksheet to complete. Later that week, the group will meet for a 60-minute active discussion. This group conversation will get very practical and call on participants' experiences and ideas to share with everyone. Lastly, every participant has access to a 30-minute call with the group facilitator.
What if I miss a session?
No worries, once a group session is finished, a recording of that session will be uploaded for viewing access. It remains viewable moving forward, allowing you to catch up at any point or even refer back to videos later on down the road.
How many will be in a group?
This group course has limited capacity. The group will close at 20 participants (most weeks, a few people are unable to participate) making the group large enough for varied experiences/perspectives, but not too big to facilitate lively discussions.
Is there really homework?
Yes, a little. The course will offer several worksheets that will help you evaluate your leadership and ministry, helping you take appropriate next steps to lead staff better.
Can more than one person take the course?
Each person who takes a Ministry Boost course must register, however, there are discounts for multiple registrations. Email email@example.com to get a discount code to register multiple people from your church for the same course.
This course is not open for enrollment.
