SEC Discipleship Cohorts are discipleship journeys designed for the spiritual formation of our SEC churches. Each cohort creates pathways that strengthen the witness of our local churches. SEC churches are encouraged to participate in one, two or all three cohorts. You are eligible to participate once you can identify three people from your local church who commit to meeting four times over one year to design and implement a project in their local church setting. There will be pre-reading and post-reporting before and after each on-site meeting. Two churches from each network or the first 6 churches to sign up for each cohort will form the cohort. The cost for each cohort is $200/church and it can be paid in four (4) $50/payments. Registration opens on Monday, June 3rd for each cohort. All cohort meetings will be held in Atlanta at the SEC Office. Scholarships are available for churches that need help with transportation or lodging.

Justice Discipleship Cohort
Our Justice Cohort is a discipleship journey about intentionally engaging topics of justice including racial righteousness, restorative justice, social entrepreneurship and Christian community development in local contexts as our witness of being embodied communities of Christ’s shalom. We believe each church in the Southeast Conference desires to help those who are hurting and to make what is wrong in our communities right. This means our churches needs to be places of understanding and truth-telling. We are called to lead ministries of healing, rebuilding and restoration. Justice is more than standing against what is wrong, it is also about making sure things are right. The Justice Discipleship Cohort launches on Friday, October 25th - 26th and registration closes on Friday, October 11th. Registration opens Monday, June 3, 2019.
Generosity Discipleship Cohort
Our Generosity Discipleship Cohort is a discipleship journey about stewardship that is expressed in gratitude, revealed in prayer, guided by the Holy Spirit and lived in faith. We believe each church in the Southeast Conference desires to be generous in their giving. The world has changed, and these shifts are influencing how Christians give. Old models, assumptions, and expectations about how to nurture generosity are having diminishing impact and new forms are emerging. Participants will explore these emerging trends and design projects to implement in their local contexts. Rob Hall, Vice President of Real Estate Services for National Covenant Properties, will be the facilitator for this cohort. The Generosity Discipleship Cohort launches on Friday, February 7th - 8th and registration opens Monday, June 3rd and closes on Friday, December 26th.
