Hours of Content

Our exclusive members area and Learning Experiences include hundreds of hours of learning videos and lessons from some of the worlds top minds on discipleship.

Live Interaction

Even though the classes are virtual, groups are kept intentionally small so that you can interact with your peers and be coached directly by our instructors to get real feedback - not some answers from a bot.
*Only available on Facilitated Learning Experience Lead by M.I. Huddle Leaders.

What You Learn

In these two 6-week experiences, you will learn the key concepts of discipleship in ways that are simple, repeatable, and transferrable. You'll be guided you through the content to help you prepare to start your own Huddle.

We have worked to make each week of study packed with content, yet manageable, and to help you apply what you’re learning as you go. This is vital because the goal of this process is not to just transmit knowledge, but to give you a dashboard of tools that you can use in your day-to-day life as a disciple who makes disciples.


This includes videos and readings on the key topics for the week. You engage with the videos and the recommended reading at your desk or on the go. The purpose is to help you understand both the HOW and the WHY of each idea.


This includes the opportunity to interact with other people in your Huddle using our Asynchronous Discipleship platform. Participate and communicate on your schedule, anywhere in the world. This interaction is a key part of understanding what God is saying to you through the content, determining what you should do about it, and processing what you experience.


This is a checkpoint to make sure you understand the key ideas in the content for the week. It comes in the form of a written reflection or quizzes.


This is a tangible step you can take to put what you’ve learned into practice.
