How serious are you about living a life on mission for God? Are you serious enough to ask for a little help?
If your situation is anything like ours was when we started our missional journey, you probably don't have a lot of people around to help guide you.
When we started out, most of our Christian friends didn't even know what it meant to be missional. So, they didn't really understand what we were trying to do. And they weren't able to give us very much advice, because they hadn't experienced living the way we envisioned living.
We wish we would have had somebody to come alongside us and coach us through the beginning steps of living missionally. But, we didn't know where to look.
So, instead, we stumbled our way through it. And we made a lot of mistakes. And we still don't know everything there is to know. But we've learned a lot.
Since those first years of experimenting with missional ideas, we've reached a point in our journey that we can give back. We are now part of Forge Sacramento, where we develop content and coach residents who want to live as missionaries in their own neighborhoods. We share some of the things we've learned in our blog and in our book titled Bless Like Jesus: Stop Trying to Convert and Simply Show People They Matter. And we're always looking for ways to share our knowledge with more people.
That's why we put together a few different ways we can help you as you make the transition into a missional mindset. Our goal is to help as many people as possible to streamline this process and avoid some of our mistakes.
Whether you're brand new to the whole idea of missional living, or you've been at it for a while, we can help. Whether you're taking your first step, or you just need a little help navigating your current situation, we want to partner with you. Whether you have been attending your current church for decades or you haven't been to a service in years, we have the tools to guide you into a more impactful life.
So, check out some of the ways we can help, and let us know what's right for you.
Bless Like Jesus
What if Christians today were known for how well we bless people rather than for being judgmental, hypocritical, and self-centered?
What kind of impact could you make in your community if you were better at recognizing needs and meeting them? What would it take to make blessing the people around you a daily habit?
We've put together three levels of training for you to choose from, based on our book, Bless Like Jesus: Stop Trying to Convert and Simply Show People They Matter.
Each level of training takes you through the 4-week process we lay out in the book to help you develop the habit of recognizing the needs around you and making a difference.
Take a look at the free bonus content we put together to go along with the book. And, while you're there, look at the Bless Like Jesus Action Plan, which includes access to our private Facebook group. And, if you're really serious about blessing people, you can sign up for a series of 5 personal coaching sessions with us.
No matter how long you've been living on mission, there is an area that you could use some advice, encouragement, or guidance. Maybe you just need a fresh set of eyes to look at your situation and show you ways you can move forward.
That's what our Missional Coaching sessions are for! We're not going to tell you what you have to do. But, we will help you to see areas that can be improved. And, we'll help you come up with ideas and set goals to ensure you have the most impact possible in your context.
Here are some of the options we have available:
Our favorite coaching method is group coaching. In a group coaching session, each participant gets his/her questions answered by us. But you also benefit from hearing the struggles and successes of other people in the group. Questions you didn't even know you had will be answered. Sometimes by the other participants in the group. You get the benefit of working together with a larger group instead of a single individual.
If you're looking for a more personalized experience, then 1-on-1 coaching is for you. Maybe your schedule leaves you with a limited amount of open time slots. Maybe you're looking for more or less frequent sessions. Maybe you just want the kind of focused attention that is only possible 1-on-1. Whatever your reason, we can set up a system for you.
Married? Working in a partnership? We offer 2-on-2 training, because we think it's important for partners to be on the same page. Whether you are two friends with the same vision, or you are a married couple that wants to work with both of us at the same time, we're ready for you. The 2 of us have been together throughout our missional formation, and we love to see others go through this process together.
