Sojourn Network’s coaching cohorts are designed to provide group-based coaching to pastors and ministry leaders for leadership development, personal renewal, and ministry training. Each cohort is led by a qualified, network-approved ministry leader and are highly relational, ministry specific, and practical. While they are open to non-network pastors and leaders, these cohorts are designed to serve Sojourn Network pastors and ministry leaders primarily. Specific cohorts will vary from year to year, and they all aim to help Sojourn Network accomplish its mission of seeing healthy pastors planting, growing and multiplying gospel-centered churches.
In general, our cohorts run on an academic schedule, with offerings in the Spring & Fall semesters.

Leading a large church to grow as a sending church can be a daunting task, whether your church has a history of sending malpractice or little sending practice at all. This coaching cohort is designed to help missions leaders in such contexts establish the right foundation for sending, and then build upon it with effective vision, strategy, and processes. Facilitated by Upstream leader and Sojourn Community Church pastor of global missions, Nathan Garth, the cohort's curriculum is based on Upstream's Sending Church Elements.
During the first few years of preaching, the early preacher cultivates habits that will either elevate or undermine his longevity and potency as a preacher. This cohort is designed to re-examine the preachers heart, goals, and delivery since he has now experienced ministry outside of the homiletics class. Special attention will be given to sermon organization, the role of application, and the desperate need for, in the words of D. Martyn Lloyd Jones, ‘the Sacred Anointing’.
