YEAR 1View Costs
You will begin by recruiting a cohort of 10-15 leaders to the course each of whom will have the privilege of individualised attention from a trained mentor independent of their local situation, who has been through the course themselves, and who is well acquainted with the course processes.
This cohort needs to be selected with a view to their potential to become course mentors and/or facilitators in year 2. It will take around two hours a week over a 30 week period, but most of this time will be devoted to sharpening and building habits chosen by the participant. Only 17 hours will be taken up in

Participants from YEAR 1 will be trained as mentors, while a second cohort will be recruited to go through the course. The mentor training (including
By the time you have added in 7 hours for each person you mentor, 6 hours of preparation for this, and attendance at the first and last Habits group sessions with the new cohort, you are looking at a total commitment of 26-33 hours, depending on whether you mentor one or two people, ie about an hour a week.
Additionally, up to four of the first group will be selected as facilitators. Key segments of the course will be available on video and facilitator training will be optionally available. Facilitators will need to commit to attending the five two hour Habits group sessions, and a similar amount of time in preparation. Normally facilitators find it helpful to be also part of the mentoring team. You will also need to build your own Habits library.

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.

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.
£1000 to train up to 10 mentors and 4 facilitators. Plus Habits handbooks for the second cohort @ £5 per person.Get in touch
