Our next registration window begins on June 16, 2019. Join our Waiting List to be notified when registration for our 2019 Fall Launch Training is open.
The SpiritGroups program was born out of a deep desire to advance the New Thought movement and blaze a trail for spiritual awakening.
As the Spiritual Leader of a New Thought community, I have often asked myself what my purpose was as a leader, and how our spiritual communities could best nurture the spiritual growth of our congregations.
It took many years to discover the answer to my question, ironically, perhaps, through a chance visit to a local mega-church.
This experience inspired years of study and the gradual awakening to a "new way" of ministry that is grounded in a powerful mission and designed to equip new leaders and engage your congregation.
I am excited to partner with you in the journey of shifting into this mission-centric model with small groups infrastructure.

Q: Will there be another time this year when we could begin the training?
A: The next time we will open for new ministries will be in July 2020.
Q: How many people can attend the training sessions?
A: Your license covers everyone in your ministry. You can share the training with as many people as you'd like, as often as you'd like, as long as they are using the training to support the mission of your ministry.
Q: How much does it cost?
A: The initial training is a $1250 investment plus a $250 annual licensing & support fee. You will also have the option of using our online group management platform for $2 per group per month.
Q: What does the annual licensing and support fee include?
A: There is a $250/year licensing and support fee required to use the SpiritGroups brand and training. This fee includes access to our weekly live Q&A session for ministers and program leaders, our weekly trainings for Group Leaders and Hosts, unlimited access for unlimited number of leaders to our video-based small group curriculum, ongoing access to training curriculum (so you can repeat as needed and/or train new people as they come on board). it also includes branding resources and a few other perks, too!
Q: Is the training live online? A video series? Is it ongoing or just once per season? If live, are the sessions recorded for playback?
A: This is a self-paced video-based training program. We release videos for what you need when you need it. Typically, you'll receive one video per week, although you'll receive a bit more than that in August and September as we train & prepare you for your fall launch. Plan to set aside some time each week with your team to go through new information and apply it to your program.
Q: What kind of support is available?
A: We will be offering a weekly live Q&A opportunity each week through our Facebook group for ministers and program leaders of active SpiritGroup campuses.
We also will be providing supplemental leadership training for your group leaders and Program Leaders through Facebook Live.
General support inquiries can be sent to [email protected]. Mendhi is also available for private consulting for a special rate for all active SpiritGroup campuses.
