LIFETOGETHER COACHING PROGRAM
Coaching Programs WE KNOW. You have huge vision and signiﬁcant potential. You want to connect your people into community, develop their spiritual maturity, and help each person grow while growing your church. But you also have limited resources, time, and leaders. You’ve tried small groups before, and you’d love to align your groups around your weekend teaching and core values. But how do you create that kind of ministry, and how do you build its momentum? WE KNOW CHURCH. Brett Eastman, founder and president of Lifetogether, revolutionized the small group model at Willow Creek Community Church while serving with Bill Hybels, connecting 12,000 people into groups over ﬁve years. He then served on the senior staff at Saddleback Church with Rick Warren where he pioneered video-driven small group curriculum and produced a variety of series including the Purpose Driven and 40 Days of Purpose campaigns.
WE KNOW HOW TO HELP YOU. Now we’re pioneering a new program. To help even more churches and pastors, we’re launching Lifetogether Coaching Programs, which are designed to help churches develop their own small group strategies, create their own video and print curriculum, cultivate reproducing disciples, and even discover the next generation of how church is being done in today's generation.
Since then, Lifetogether has worked with more than 500 churches of every size and theological background. From brand-new churches on the west coast to established megachurches in the heartland, we know what it takes to transform a sermon series into a church-wide campaign that targets connecting 100% or more of the congregation.
