Training

IMG_1434Throughout the year, SWCP provides many opportunities for training. Whether it’s a Forum, after-Forum workshop or an all-day training session, you’ll find strength for the journey here. UPCOMING EVENTS 

  • FORUMS—Forums are a time to gather with others who “get it” and enjoy support, training, camaraderie and…a complimentary meal. At each Forum, we bring in speakers who are passionate about training and encouraging planters. Mark your calendar for the Forums…they’re an oasis of encouragement for planter couples.  We have two locations currently and more are in the works. See “events” section for dates and locations.
  • WORKSHOPS—We host workshops on topics helpful to planters on topics such as: social media, comforting the grieving and branding.
  • “PREPARING TO PLANT” CHURCH PLANTING BOOTCAMP-Church planter BootCamp is a heavily packed 3 days of learning, thinking and preparing for effective church planting. It is designed to prepare those interested in church planting and is a great opportunity for planting teams to be exposed to strategic training.  We immerse the church planter, and hopefully some of their team, into a learning lab environment. Foundational church planting topics are briefly addressed and an abundance of time is devoted to contextual development. Planters strategies are then reworked through the interaction of veteran church planters, coaches, and other peers. This BootCamp is NOT lecture driven, but INTERACTION DRIVEN. It’s not geared towards a particular philosophy of planting but towards the practical nuts and bolts that apply to almost any planting philosophy.
