Why a Learning Cohort?

Reflection on God’s mission and how it finds expression in our leadership is important. We can increase our learning by hearing and reflecting on the experience of others. The time commitments are intentionally brief, however having several other people to share in the journey over a five week period provides support, encouragement and peer accountability in the process. 

What will it Cost to Participate in this Cohort?

The registration fee for this cohort is $25.00. Your Corps may be able to help with the cost of you participating in a cohort. Please see your Corps Officer. The cost of the presenters, resources, coaching appointments and administration is being subsidized by the Corps Ministries Department at Territorial Headquarters.
