Training

If you are currently leading a NWC and would like more support, or are exploring a call to be a part of this movement, we encourage you to apply to one of our apprenticeship or residency programs for 2022-2023.

The program, led by Sara Hayden, director of apprenticeships, residencies and leadership cohorts for 1001, has three major components:

  • Saying ‘yes’ to this call by inaugurating a contextual and transformative new ministry;
  • Participate a cohort of peers and mentors for meaningful weekly reflection, training and discernment (on Zoom, hosted by Sara) and an annual in-person retreat;
  • Planning your next steps through regular coaching. Our coaches are experienced leaders in the 1001 NWC movement and certified through the International Coaching Federation.

“We invest heavily in the apprenticeship model because we believe this work cannot be fruitfully done in isolation,” Hayden says. “Our peer cohort component encourages humility and mutual support. Concrete training gives participants access to insights many of us have learned the hard way and, over time, spiritual direction. Coaching ensures the work is contextual and sustainable, gospel-formed, motivated and inspired.”
