Upstream Cohorts are designed to help missions leaders lead their churches to become better sending churches. The Cohorts consist of training sessions and group discussion alongside other missions leaders. Followed by individual coaching sessions. All designed to take the Sending Church Elements and apply them to your unique church. Our goal is to see your church grow in its capacity to send well to the nations.
We offer 3 types of Cohorts
The Foundations Cohort will focus on the Establishing Phase, Elements 1-5 of the Sending Church Elements. Participants will develop their Missions Convictions, Missions Vision & Strategy, tweak or overhaul their Missions Budget, and begin to developing a Sending Pipeline.
The Advanced Cohort will build upon the Foundations Cohort and focus on the Developing & Engaging Phases, Elements 6-13 of the Sending Church Elements. Participants will more fully develop their Sending Pipeline, focusing on Identification, Assessment and Development of Sent-Ones.
Specialized Cohorts will focus more deeply on specific topics and Sending Church Elements introduced in Foundations and Advanced Cohorts. These topics include: Missionary Care, Developing Partnerships, Short-term trips, Multi-site Missions Leadership, Local Missions, International Ministry, and much more.
