Learning Communities are the primary tool that Cascade Network use to help Christian leaders put Discipleship and Mission at the center of everything they do.
A Learning Community is a series of 3-day intensives over 2 years with a team of 3-7 people from your church that incorporates main stage teaching and input with tactical training, expert coaching, and a chance to experience Missional Communities and Huddles. This all concludes with the creation of a six month plan that your team creates for your local ministry context. We recognise that every church leader and city is different and your plan needs to reflect those nuances.
These intensives happen every six months, with four gatherings over a two year period. In addition, there is regular coaching on a Huddle conference-call for the Senior Leader.
This might sound like a significant investment over a two year period. It is. if it were possible to impart the skills, tool and vehicles necessary to achieve everything God is calling you to with a smaller investment of time, we'd do that. But after working with nearly a thousand churches in the United States, Europe, Australia and beyond, we know there is no short-circuiting the process.
We want to see leaders cultivating church cultures with discipleship at the heart; cultures in which transformation and breakthrough are the norm.

If you make disciples you always get the Church, but if you focus on making the Church, you rarely get disciples. Discipleship is the “operating system”, the foundation, the engine that makes everything else work and is therefore foundational to the future work you will do in multiplying leaders, mobilising mission, and cultivating a movement. During this immersion experience, we focus on learning from Jesus’ process and methodology for making disciples.

A Community of Practice is an additional two-year process, in which church communities who have already been through a full Learning Community continue to meet as practitioners to connect, revisit core principles, share stories, and engage in strategic planning.
