Recruit and Train Your Core Team

Are you planting a church or a campus?

Recruiting a core team is challenging, yet essential. Although it will take time and effort to find the right team members and train them, without a team, you are essentially limiting the growth of your church. A core team will help you lay a scalable foundation for the birth of your church or campus. So you can’t afford to launch without one.


The Developing a Core Team course will help you build the ministry muscles required to launch well and position yourself for years of fruitful ministry. Instead of placing doers, learn how to develop equippers for ministry!


Not only will you learn how to recruit a core team, but in this course, you will be provided with the nuts and bolts for how to train them and release them into ministry. This includes a 12-week training outline with teaching notes to help you prepare your core team for launch.


These 6 modules are designed to help you:

  • Identify and recruit an ideal core team member

  • Develop a timeline for launching a church plant or campus

  • Train your core team over a 12-week period


This course includes 6 enhanced modules, 2 hours of HD video, and 24+ handouts. And it's all yours to keep and revisit for as long as you need it.

The first three modules are free. If you like what you see, then you'll love the additional depth, insight, and templates in the remaining three modules. You won’t find this exclusive course anywhere else, so don't miss this essential training so that you can launch well.

Strengthen Your Ministry Muscles

For a new church or campus, developing a core team is the first step—the prenatal stage if you will. The prenatal stage of new church development is similar to the prenatal stage of human development. An unborn child must develop different biological systems to enable it to function effectively after birth, and they must be in place when birth takes place for proper development to continue. The same is true for a new church. Key systems must operate, or the church may not succeed after it’s born.

The core team is the heart of your church. The core team is what will ultimately help birth your new church or campus, and provide the ministry muscle required for these systems. Many ministries in your church will never even get started or be able to exist without your core team volunteers.
