Right now you have the opportunity to join a group of church leaders working at local, regional and national level, to go through the course yourself, primarily for your own continuous development, but also to help you evaluate if this is something you would like to roll out further.
Life inventories for this course will take place from now to the end of August, and 1-1 mentoring will take place at your mutual convenience 3-4 weeks after each of the group sessions which will be held at Agape, 167 Newhall St, Birmingham B3 1SW, a short walk from Snow Hill Station:

YEAR 2View Costs
If you like the course, and wish to roll it out within your church, we will work with you to deliver it to a group of early adopters. This will be a group of 8-12 people who have the potential to mentor and/or facilitate in the future. But please understand what this course will and will not do for you. The course will not fulfil the function of a stand-alone follow-up course for new believers. For that, you want something more Jesus-specific. Nor has it been designed with those under 25 in mind. The course will
- help you build leaders who are engaged in whole life discipleship
- offer challenging and supportive spiritual nourishment to leaders
- help build a culture of mentoring within your church.
Unless you are a large church, we recommend you consider teaming up with one or two of the other church leaders in the initial cohort. Our focus will be on helping you to facilitate and mentor well, working alongside you inside and outside of the group sessions in an action and reflection style.
YEAR 3 onwardsView Costs
For a modest annual fee, your church can continue to have access to the electronic inventory system, as well as the latest session outlines, video clips etc, which will all be available in a password protected area of the website.
You may then freely teach the material to your own church members, and you are encouraged to invite participants to act as mentors to those from neighbouring churches to help them get started.
You will be able to send new people for
As each course comes to an end, Habits “graduates” will be encouraged to consider an accountability framework to replace the one they are now losing, eg prayer partners/triplets, an external spiritual director/mentor or possibly continuing with the mentoring relationship established during the habits course. We strongly recommend that each participant make and own this decision for themselves as this greatly increases its potential for longevity and effectiveness.
£245 per person in the initial cohort. Sign up for the course starting in October, or talk to us about going straight for a course with a leadership group in your own church with at least 10 participants.Get in touch
