CBF Church Starts Discernment Cohorts
The CBF Church Start Discernment Cohorts takes place four times a year. This free 8-week online experience is for those discerning and living out a call to start new churches. It is a creative space for people who are already in the process of starting a church to explore and work through the vision and mission. This is a safe space for all participants who engage in the secure and private site.
Participants will work through the basics of contextual church starting, introspective writing, and group conversation. Over the 8-weeks, the candidate will be accumulating his or her writings in a church start profile, which serves as a tool for the starter and evaluation tool for CBF.
The next cohort will begin July 9th and run through September 1st. This cohort has a July 3rd registration deadline.
The final cohort for 2017 will be October 8th and run through December 1st.
To join the cohort, candidates must complete this form
