The Training You Need to See Your Disciple-Making Vision Come to Life
Our training is designed to help you launch and lead a life-giving, multiplying church.
Fulfill the Vision God Placed in Your Heart
Planting a church is incredibly rewarding — though rarely an easy process. So many people are behind you, but few understand the unique dynamics of leading and growing something from scratch.
That’s what our training is designed for. We help you avoid common pitfalls of church planting, step into your God-given leadership potential, and craft a plan to move forward and plant your life-giving church.

Twice a year, we converge to equip and encourage one another on this journey in ministry. ThinkNEXT allows you to connect with like-minded leaders who can guide you in your mission to make strong disciples. We’re better together — and ThinkNEXT helps us continue to dream, plan, and lead ourselves, our families, and our churches.
“I could see how in church planting you could feel very alone if you weren’t careful. Nexus has done a good job of removing that possibility for me.”
The Bonhoeffer Project is a year-long leadership development virtual cohort to help you reclaim the ‘Discipleship-First Gospel,’ craft a disciple-making plan, and change the world — one person at a time. This 10-month process will challenge and equip you to intentionally develop disciple-makers.
Participants learn to:
Reclaim the discipleship gospel
Craft a disciple-making plan
Change the world one person at a time
“The Bonhoeffer Project has been a refreshing look at the very words of Jesus in light of what discipleship should be. It truly helped me to put into practice what I had been struggling to do for years. The Bonhoeffer Project has brought joy back to the ministry God has called me to do.”
The Clarity Project ensures individuals and leadership teams gain clarity regarding who they are and what God has called them to do as a church, organization, or person.
With the guidance of The Clarity Project, you will experience:
Freedom — When you’re living out the vision God created you to pursue, that’s when you experience true freedom.
Confidence — When you know what God has called you to do personally and organizationally, you can lead yourself and others with immeasurable confidence.
Clarity — When you clarify your vision, you can pursue the greater things God has in store for you and say “no” to distractions.
