Cultivate Training


Cultivate is a unique 9-month curriculum designed to help you develop the habits and skills essential to plant and grow a new church that reaches your culture. Cultivate was developed by successful church planters who have seen thousands of people find faith, grow in Christ, and become leaders of the church. Cultivate combines expert content, guided real-world experiences, and transforming relationships to help you develop a contextual strategy specifically for your culture. Cultivate was designed for the contemporary church planter seeking to reach our global, post-Christian world. Cultivate will help you start a new church that will grow by conversion growth rather than just transfer growth. 

What does Cultivate deliver?

– Expert content by renowned authors and experienced church planters delivered anywhere through online video and readings.

– 60 online exercises designed to catalyze you into the real-world experiences necessary to develop the knowledge, character, and skills of a successful church planter.

– Relationships with a coach, champion, and other like-minded church planters to guide and support you in this courageous kingdom venture.

– 6 hours of Masters-level (M.A. or M.Div.) seminary credit available through Wesley Seminary. 

Who are the Cultivate Coaches?

The Church Multiplication Collective of TWC will connect you with a coach within our Wesleyan tribe. All coaches are certified through Cultivate’s Coach Training and are experienced in the field of church planting.

When is the best time to use Cultivate?

The best time to use cultivate is after you have gone through the Church Planters’ Assessment Center and before you plant. Cultivate is a great solution for churches desiring to create a church planter internship/residency experience.
