Live from Facebook — 10,000 Fathers Worship School
QuestionsJosh: Can you weigh out the pros/cons of participating in the on-site intensive versus simply the online experience for an out-of-state student?
Cameron: We’ve launched, about two years ago, and online platform. We basically filmed an onsite intensive. All of the teaching, Q and A are on film. You join a coaching huddle, watch these videos over a 6 month journey, and process with your coaching huddle just as you would with the onsite intensive. You’re still getting all of the content, and processing it all with your coach and huddle. The biggest difference is that you’re not doing the 5 day on-site experience in Atlanta, but you’ll still be in a coaching huddle with people from all over the world.
Josh: Would you say you’re missing out on more of the community and relationship building aspect if you do not come to the on-site?
Cameron: To say it frankly, yes. There certainly is a community that forms over the online journey experience, though anytime you spend 5 days together with people, morning to night, sharing meals, and deep camaraderie forms. We don’t do what we do in churches, we do what we do in our homes. There really is a community experience that is unique and special to the onsite intensive. But we understand that being here in person is not always possible. We’ve actually had several students start with the online course, and later on come to Atlanta to participate in the onsite experience.
Tim: What are the dates of the May track? And is it still open?
Cameron: The May online kicks off on May 14th, a monday. We are still taking applications (link) and it is still open.
JoAnne: What if I don’t play an instrument? Can I still come to worship school?
Camerson Absolutely. At the end of each intensive we ask our students to set a goal for an area in which they need improvement. Over the 6 month huddle process the coaches will encourage our students to get the training they need. If you set one small goal and stick to it, it’s amazing how much you’ll grow.
