  • Courses
    Every year the churches of the GLR are taking new ground for the Kingdom and expanding the gospel to more people in more places. The GLR's network of multiplying leaders and churches is always striving to learn and grow. We grow in wisdom with every new effort, project, plant, and planter so that we can serve and support YOU and God's unique calling on your heart. Here are a few of our favorite courses to fuel the fire of multiplication in your ministry. Live Sent - Discover Your Calling course with Groundswell - Is God stirring your heart for ministry beyond the walls of the physical church? In this 5-session course, you will learn how to discover your calling and effectively discern the voice of God in your life and ministry. Jesus told his disciples in John 20:21, “As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” It's time to discover your calling and “live sent.” Mobilizing Disciple Makers course with Groundswell - In this 6-session cohort, you will learn the marks of a disciple-making church and the steps necessary to create a strategic, comprehensive, and clear discipleship pathway. In addition, this cohort will help pastors move from blueprint to construction. This cohort is ideal for pastors interested in building a disciple-making process in their church. Church Multiplication BOOT CAMP - Our Boot Camp is the best orientation and initial training for church planting, campusing and missional fresh expressions. Boot Camps are offered to you 3-4 times a year and offer participants practical principal-based steps to launching a missional movement. For more information about training for church planters. Please take a moment and send us an email. We look forward to serving you. True^North: Disciple-Making in the Word For the Local Church: is a resource for all believers and local churches to better study the Word of God in depth.

"Become a Level 5 Multiplying Church" course with Exponential Learning Community - This course is designed to help you and your church move toward multiplication. You will gain a thorough understanding of the framework of “Becoming a Level 5 Multiplying Church”. You will learn about all 5 levels and know your own level (i.e. your Profile) as your starting point. You will get insights into Levels 4 and 5 and learn from others who have made that journey. And this course will help you recognize the tensions that you’ll encounter on your way to Level 5 so that you can begin to take your own steps toward kingdom multiplication. This course is based on the material from the eBooks Spark: Igniting a Culture of Multiplication and Becoming a Level 5 Multiplying Church. Exponential - Resource Kits - As a multiplying leader, you will naturally desire to know all you can so you can do all you can. To fuel this desire for wisdom and growth, we encourage you to dive into the resource kits our friends at Exponential have provided. We can not stress enough how valuable and diverse this collection of free resources is. Here is our advice as you look through these resources. Take the time and energy required to discern the voice, leading, and calling of the Holy Spirit. This is the most important advice we can give. Take your time, and work through one entire kit at a time. Avoid the temptation to fill your plate and then not finish anything. Take a friend with you. Having another person to walk through the content with us is vital in making the information come to life in your context. Having a friend for the journey will also hold you accountable to glean as much wisdom as possible. Take a break to practice what you have learned. Knowledge is good, but wisdom comes from exposure to new information and experience practicing what you have learned. When you find a resource kit that helps you, please let us know with an email: We are continually learning about these resource kits and how they are helping so many of our leaders. Thank you! Looking for something more? We are happy to help connect you to the course that answers your specific questions. Please reach out and let us serve you.
