How it works


We believe God is moving in the midst of change. Led by Luther Seminary trained coaches, you and your cohort members will develop the faithful imagination to discover where God is calling next.
When you join a cohort, you commit to a 12-18 month learning journey that includes:

Tracing God’s Movement in Our Lives and Neighborhoods

Learn by Doing: Using Action Learning to Discover God’s Leading

Sharing Our Learning: Intentional Reflections on Our Actions

  • In-person gatherings

    Your cohort will gather two or three times during your program to build deep connections, define the primary challenges you’re facing, learn by doing, and reflect on what you’ve learned.

  • Regular group video coaching

    Engage with your cohort and coaches to advance your learning and share concerns, wonderings, and joys.

  • Guided experiments in your ministry context

    Put theory to the test with experiments in your context, then reflect on the outcomes with your cohort.

  • Selected reading and study

    Between retreats and coaching sessions, enter both the biblical text and expert material to discover new paradigms for ministry.
