What is a Sticky Faith Cohort?

When someone asks me that question, I can’t help but feel like responding, “How much time do you have to talk?” This past week the FYI team welcomed our Sticky Faith Cohort church teams here in Pasadena, and if we could have piped you into that gathering, you’d get a real sense for the energy and ideas that bounce around like sparks in a roaring campfire.

The Sticky Faith Cohort offers advanced leadership training and research-driven collaboration within a community of leaders committed to help young people develop the lifelong faith they need. How do we do that? Through offering you:

  • One year of personalized coaching for your ministry team
  • A breakthrough plan that will refocus your team’s needs and move toward Sticky Faith
  • Monthly research-based webinars with FYI and other leading ministry voices
  • Two three-day gatherings in Pasadena, CA, focused on executing change relevant to your church

The bottom line is that the Cohort is more than a conference. It’s a catalyst for culture change within your community. For many leaders who have been through one of our prior Cohorts, they share that it’s nothing less than transformational.

“We now look at things through different lenses, making decisions in light of longevity. We don’t say, ‘Will this event be successful tonight?’ but rather, ‘Will it successfully cultivate faith that will last?’ The Cohort has changed how we program, how we spend our budget, and what we prioritize.”

– John Rosensteel, Blackhawk Church, Madison Wisconsin

We know that is also true for our team as we journey with congregations just like yours each year. More than a hundred churches from across the U.S. and Canada have already taken this next leap toward Sticky Faith. Are you ready to join us?


Join Kara Powell and me on a conference call October 16, 9:00am PT to discuss any questions regarding the yearlong Cohort process. Call in at: (619) 326-2730 Access Code: 559575. Email Brian Nelson at bnelson@fuller.edu with additional questions.

The deadline is December 15th for the 2015 cohort; don’t miss getting a spot for next year!
