New GO Cluster Forming Now!
I am now forming a new GO Cluster that will begin in March 2014. The GO Cluster will follow the G.O.1.X Training Manual that carries the sub-title, Building Your Church's Great Commission Matrix. The title for this cluster will be GO Cluster 314 (named for the starting month, March 2014). If there are more than enough for one cluster, two cohorts will be formed as 314A (10:00 AM) and 314B (2:00 PM). The GO Cluster will run for twelve months from March 2014 - February 2015, including 6 online training sessions and 6 one-on-one consultations with me. Click here for more information "GO Clusters"
