Discipleship Cohort (for ALL women)
Feb-July 2019 (registration closed)

Being a disciple or follower of Jesus is a lifelong journey. It is best done in community. The Discipleship Cohort is an opportunity to journey with other women as you grow deeper in your relationship with God, discover and develop the unique person God has made you to be, and engage in the destiny God has for you.  This cohort is designed for ALL women, in ALL stages of their faith journey.

Starting in February 2019, each cohort consisting of a small group of women will meet together with a facilitator twice a month for a one-hour video conference call. The hour will include a short teaching session, sharing with one another, an introduction to a spiritual practice and prayer. Your six-month cohort will be the start of your community of sisters at the 2019 I Am Conference.

Join us on a journey that will transform your life. Cost is $40 to participate.
