Funding Your Movement: From Surviving To Thriving – Coaching Cohort
6 months / Limited to 12 people
With drastic changes both locally and globally, the leaders of the future church must reposition in order to influence. One of the greatest changes happening is a tidal wave of new marketplace enterprise leaders who will manage both a life of mission and a life in the marketplace as bivocational and covocational entrepreneurs. Call them Trappistes. Call them spiritual entrepreneurs. Call them bi-vocational or co-vocational. But whatever they go by they are on the front lines of a surge of new and exciting opportunities.
They’re not living in a holding pattern just waiting for a full-time church job. They are intentionally pursuing the incredible benefits of learning to leverage all of life into our sacred calling.
In this Cohort Hugh Halter will draw from 30 years of marketplace enterprise and bivo/covo lifestyle and pastoring to help you process these key areas of challenge and opportunity:
Hugh Halter has written 8 books on the church, all of which give a preferred option of bivo/covo existence. He is now leading a marketplace mission in the St Louis area and will mentor you out of his right-now way of life. (This cohort also offers an optional two day immersion in Hugh’s business and mission.)
* Since this is a live coaching course with a very limited number of participants, there are no refunds after the cohort begins.
STEP 1: Apply and pay registration before the deadline, or before the group is full (12 spots).
STEP 2: We will set you up in your online group, where you can ask questions and connect
STEP 3: Start 1st video session in June, learning with Hugh over 6 months and growing in knowledge, skill and passion.
Group session schedule:
2nd Thursdays of the month, 12PM – 2PM CST:
Hugh & Cheryl began starting things from scratch in Portland, Oregon. Hugh started a painting company, then a Youth For Christ ministry in metro Portland, then a church, and eventually a national leadership training network called Missio. Missio’s growth propelled them to Denver where Hugh pioneered another church, an online training platform for missionary leaders called MCAP, a publishing company, and a successful series of eight books. Cheryl also began a hockey program for children with disabilities.
The uniqueness of Hugh & Cheryl’s life and story moved Hugh into a leadership consulting focus for business and church leaders as well as volunteering as the national director for Forge America, a training network across 20 cities. In 2016 Hugh & Cheryl, their two daughters and son-in-laws, all moved to Alton, IL, to be closer to their adult son Ryan, who was in an assisted living center.
This was the first time they moved without knowing what they would do, but Cheryl thought they could do something to help a small struggling town become a little better. Within a year, Hugh was given a 12,000 square foot federal post office, and with the help of his family turned it into “Post Commons” which the locals call the “living room for Alton.”
Under Hugh’s non-profit “Lantern Network” Hugh facilitates a coffee house, brunch kitchen, events center, whiskey society, and co-working space to birth and nurture small ventures that make a collectively large ripple.
