Spiritual Authority Cohort:
When people finish the cohort, they often ask us, “What’s next?”
Well we’ve come up with 6 ways that you can go deeper with the Spiritual Authority Cohorts by investing your Time, Talent, Treasure, or joining the Team. Check them out and let us know what you feel the Holy Spirit is calling you to below.
Inviting others and doing the Cohort again: We will be offering another round of Cohorts in the Fall, but the locations are still to be determined. To help us finalize locations, we want to know who’s interested in doing it again and inviting their friends and family to experience it with them.
Host Team: If you’re considering doing the Cohort again with your crew, we’d like you to consider becoming part of a Cohort host team. Cohort host teams help with things like setting-up, providing snacks/drinks, and organizing meet-ups in between cohorts for people to debrief, experiment together, and ask questions outside of the regular meeting times.
Further Training: We want to help you continue to learn and grow in your spiritual authority, so we are hoping to organize some online webinars and/or one- or two-day intensive trainings. Below are some of the ideas we’re considering.
Facilitating Inner Healing Prayer
Reshaping Evangelism Phase 2: Going deeper with evangelism & disciple-making training
Prophetic Gifting: What is it and how are believers to engage in it today?
Strategic Prayer and Prayer Walking Phase 2
Cohort Mission Team: We’re finding that in some of our Cohorts, there are groups of people taking the idea of spiritual authority over their communities very seriously, and they’re hungry to see those far from God come to follow Jesus. If this is you, we want to come alongside you and provide you with the coaching and training you need to reach your city. So, a Cohort Mission Team is about forming a team of like-minded people to continue to experiment with the toolbox we’ve given you for the purpose of seeing a Gospel Movement break out in your city. Then we’ll match you with Novo staff who will continue to provide you with coaching and training.
Investing in Cohorts: In the last few years, we’ve gone from one Cohort at the Novo office to nine Cohorts in eight cities around the U.S., and we have several new cities where we’d like to launch new Cohorts next year. Many of you have asked about investing in these Cohorts, so we want to give you the opportunity to “pay it forward” if you will and invest in all that God is doing by equipping and activating the body of Christ through this training.
To give you an idea of what it would look like to pay it forward for next year’s Cohorts, the average cost of a Cohort is around $5,500 with travel, hospitality, and materials, which ends up around $125 per person. We would love to see all of next year’s Cohorts underwritten by previous Cohort participants. Would you consider becoming a monthly Cohort partner, making a one-time gift, or even underwriting an entire Cohort?
Investing in Novo: We believe nothing is as important as reaching the nations with the good news of Jesus. You’ve had a chance to meet some of our staff this year and hear some of their stories about how God is using them around the world to fulfill Novo’s mission to multiply movements of the gospel and mobilize the church for mission. We’d love to share more about what God is doing through Novo and discuss what it would look like to for you to partner with this mission and see “...a vast crowd, too great to count, from every nation and tribe and people and language, standing in front of the throne and before the Lamb.” (Rev 7:9)
