With today’s wealth of excellent, widely available Biblical teaching, we doubt your biggest need is training. We bet you’re like us – in need of practical help applying what you already know. Saturate Coaching Communities (SCC) are designed to do just that – draw out and implement! Through our Coaching Community you will journey together with others to holistically examine pain points and conflict related to your leadership role(s), create actionable next steps, and achieve positive movement in your ministry.
Year one with SCC’s is about exposure to a variety of concepts that will help you create a solid foundation, own the concepts and gain movement while exploring many of the topics in the series, How to Equip a Missional Community.
Year two with SCC’s is about leadership development and traction with a focus on reproducible and sustainable structures to keep your church healthy for the long haul. Year two explores the topics in the series, Strengthening Missional Communities & MC Church Realities.
Saturate believes missional communities (MC) are the most optimal way for discipleship to occur within churches. The coaching sessions will concentrate on how to fully form disciples in an MC context, lead healthy missional communities, multiply disciples and communities in your church, and a variety of other formative topics pertinent to discipleship. Saturate has identified several key themes applicable to both those just starting MCs as well as those with years of experience.
Saturate Coaching Communities will meet every two weeks for a live 90-minute online coaching session. Each session consists of follow up from the previous week, peer-to-peer group interaction, and directed coaching on the week’s video teaching. Each video session is approximately 30 minutes and has a corresponding guide for study and preparation.
Community is an essential component for life, learning, mission, and coaching. Each Saturate Coaching Community consists of one coach and up to five members — all learners and practitioners at various stages. Participants are selected for each community based on a series of common factors including, (but not limited to) experience with missional communities, role in their local church, geographical location, and more. The more each community has in common, the more they will learn and better support one another.
In addition, each SCC has its own private online meeting room, as well as full-access to our greater Saturate online forum where new resources can be downloaded or ideas and experiences shared. The advantage of this unique learning environment is the opportunity to engage with others just like yourself – those implementing missional communities, transitioning their churches, and reaching their city and regions with the Gospel. SCC members also enjoy exclusive access to monthly webinars and online Q&A sessions with seasoned leaders.
The overall goal of Saturate Coaching Communities is to see you, your church, your city, and region saturated by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. To that end, Saturate seeks to support your unique calling by offering approaches that are easily reproducible, sustainable, and scalable for any context. We are not offering cookie cutter methodology, but rather coming alongside you to draw out and contextualize what you’re learning so that you can begin to implement it in your church, neighborhoods, cities, and regions.
