    The best part was the challenge to be personally making disciples and pointing people to Jesus each day. I appreciated the vision that was cast, and how it was explained practically.

    The practical application impacted me most. It's always good to hear how others are doing it practically. It helps with the "innovation" part, so we can reproduce for our context.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    • q-iconWhat is a Master Class?

      It’s not quite a course and it’s definitely not just an ordinary report or whitepaper… …a Master Class is more like a “Mini-Course on rocket fuel!” It’s long enough to be useful and short enough to be doable.

      Here’s how it works: we have resourced and trained over 3 million leaders and practitioners from 100+ countries…

      And along the way we have curated a large number of strategies and tactics. More importantly, we DOCUMENT each strategy in step-by-step “Master Classes” so the best ideas could be repeated and implemented by different leaders, groups and churches.

      There’s no fluff. Master Classes are all about taking action and getting results as quickly and easily as possible.
