Introducing a New Way to Equip You and Your Community to Love and Lead in the Way of Jesus

The Faith+Lead Membership is the only online resource for theological education that combines on-demand digital courses, live coaching and workshops, breakthrough spiritual practices, and a supportive online community for real transformation.

Address Ministry Challenges and Opportunities with Increased Clarity

Now is your chance to join a supportive community of ministry peers who can help you move from feeling overwhelmed, discouraged, and unsure of what to do next, to hopeful, closer to God, and clear on your next, faithful steps.

  1. Looking for just-in-time resources as you step into ministry in your congregation?
  2. Tired of trying to maintain all the traditional programs?
  3. Worried about empty pews and superficial engagement?
  4. Struggling to bridge generational divides or to encourage active participation from your congregation?
  5. Feeling overwhelmed by the weight of leadership responsibilities?
  6. Torn between having the desire to do more with the reality of limited funds, volunteers, or space?
  7. Seeing so much talent and passion in your congregation but not knowing how to encourage active participation and leadership?

Four Key Pivots for Effective Ministry in Today’s Evolving Culture

The Faith+Lead Membership is designed to help you consider these key shifts that will empower you and the Christian communities you serve to follow God into a faithful future.

Pivot 1: Posture

From Fixing to Listening, Discerning, and Experimenting

Many challenges facing the church today have no quick fixes. Explore new ways of engaging and deepening your community’s faith through listening, discerning, and experimenting.

Pivot 2: Focus

From Membership to Discipleship

Move beyond mere attendance and participation. Foster a culture where every member experiences a transformative, living faith that extends into their everyday lives.

Pivot 3: Structure

From One Shape Fits All to a Mixed Ecology

Recognize that one model of church won’t reach everyone in today’s world. Cultivate new Christian communities alongside traditional church where life happens in neighborhood spaces.

Pivot 4: Leadership

From Clergy-Led/ Lay-Supported to Lay-Led/Clergy-Supported Ministry

Share the load of leadership. Encourage a collaborative ministry where lay members take active roles, supported and guided by clergy.

Why Become a Faith+Lead Member?

Gain instant access to our training, community and coaching to support you as you follow God into a faithful future.

Access to All On-Demand Courses

More than just a handful of videos and quizzes, Faith+Lead courses have been carefully designed with interaction and spiritual practices to guide you into genuine transformation.

You get access to 20+ on-demand courses included in your membership, absolutely FREE—with more being added each month.

  • Use the courses for your own continuing education and spiritual growth.
  • Offer them as ready-made curriculum in Bible studies, adult forums, small groups, and other teaching opportunities.
  • Train key leaders, stakeholders, elders, or members of various ministries by taking a course together.
Online Live Monthly Workshops

Experience live workshops led by scholars, ministry practitioners, and coaches to help you make the key shifts that will help your church or faith community flourish in today’s world. These are the same workshops Faith+Lead has been hosting for years for $45 each. Inside the membership, you get them for FREE.

Monthly Interviews and Case Studies

Each month, gather with other members for live virtual conversations with people who are engaged in transformational ministries so that you can hear what’s working for them (as well as what’s not working!). There’s nothing more powerful than hearing real stories from real pastors, church volunteers, ministry leaders, and innovators like you.

Monthly Live Group Coaching

As you’re in the process of trying new things, questions and challenges will arise. That’s why we’ll host monthly live group coaching sessions for members based on your ministry role (clergy, church volunteer or ministry leader, or ministry innovator) where you can ask real questions and learn from peers and real case studies through the facilitation and coaching of our Faith+Lead coaches.

A Private Social Network

Our entire membership experience is delivered inside the Learning Lab—a safe, supportive private social network where you can connect and learn with other members…without selling your soul (or data!) to big tech. Join and create groups based on your interests and ministry roles, connect with others around the globe or down the street, and participate in weekly spiritual practices hosted inside the Lab.

Special Member Pricing

Enjoy special member pricing and early access registration on select premium learning experiences, such as learning communities, events and more.

What Sets Us Apart: Pedagogically Rich Learning Experiences

Each course is crafted to equip you with the skills you need to be faithful and effective wherever God is calling you.

Know

Enjoy trustworthy, biblically sound instruction from thought leaders, scholars, and ministry practitioners who will help you think about the challenges you’re facing in new and insightful ways.

Be

Experience deeper connection to God and grow in your identity as a disciple of Jesus through the breakthrough spiritual practices included in each course.

Do

Take tangible action-steps to help you put into practice everything you’re learning. After all, we have learned that transformation comes from practicing our way into new ways of being the church rather than just thinking our way into them!
