Future Church Cohorts

Weekly content and coaching to move your church from adding attenders to multiplying disciples

Future Church Cohorts are a 10-week online experience to walk your team through

the most important ministry planning
of your lifetime.

  • The culture has changed.

    How are you reshaping your ministry for a post-COVID reality?

  • Innovation is required.

    Previous methods aren’t as effective as they have been in the past.

  • You need insight.

    Content is everywhere. But you need practical, actionable insights to help frame your next steps.

  • You need team buy-in.

    Future success depends on your entire team getting behind a new approach for a new day.

The Next Future Church Cohort Begins September 14!

Unleash Funnel Fusion

Many churches have an assimilation funnel, which moves people to deeper levels of engagement with the programs of the church. What if you also had a multiplication funnel that unleashed people to live on mission for God where they live, work, and play?

Brand New Insights

Cohort insights are based on Will Mancini’s new book, Future Church: 7 Laws of Real Church Growth, due to be released in December of 2020.

Build your Horizon Storyline

With fresh insights from the Future Church framework, identify key goals and objectives for your next year (and beyond) that will move your church in the direction of greater effectiveness for God’s kingdom in your specific context.

What’s Included

Your 10-week Future Church Cohort starting the week of September 14 will provide …


Receive 30 minutes of fresh video content each week focused on advancing disciple-making outcomes beyond the COVID-19 disruption.


Interact as a team through 60 minutes of live coaching and collaboration with our facilitators each week as you learn alongside the rest of your cohort.


Complete strategic exercises assigned weekly with your church team to finalize key decisions for how you implement what you’re learning.


Insights from Will Mancini’s new book, Future Church: 7 Laws of Real Church Growth, are the foundation for all of the cohort content.

Q&A Time

Each cohort is limited to 10 church teams to encourage interaction and allow time for Q&A each week with our team of facilitators.

Every week of the cohort the facilitators were putting words to things we'd felt deep in our stomachs but weren't able to fully articulate. Now we had the language and the tools to see it and the empowerment to lead where we knew the future was headed. It felt like every week in the cohort our vision of what the future of what our church could be was more and more clear.

Sean Walker, The Bayou Church

If you really want to know deep down in your soul that God is proud of the discipleship work you’re doing, this is a roadmap for that. I deeply want to be doing the right thing for when I stand before God. That responsibility weighs on me and I want to know that we’re doing everything we can to really make disciples.

Danny Schulz, Sun City Church

The challenge between assimilation and multiplication—we’re already feeling that tension. I’ve appreciated being able to use the tools—it’s giving me some traction in areas where we’ve been a little stuck. I'm dialing into how it all fits together.
