Welcome to Fuller’s Church Planting Professional Certificate Cohort - six interactive online courses with 12 monthly gatherings that you lead within your own church planting organization.

You can learn more about the certificate program you'll be leading here:

“The Church Planting Certificate from Fuller gives the church planters we work with exactly what they need. Beginning with a rich missional theology, and paying attention to the vital work of personal spiritual formation, it equips them to build an empowered team and to deeply engage their contexts with the good news of Jesus. It’s also got a really beautiful, intuitive interface.”

- Chris Swann, Church Planting Director, City to City Australia

About the Cohort Experience

We train you to lead a cohort of planters in your tribe who journey together using monthly video calls and weekly online interaction to deepen their theology, formation, and mission to reach a post-Christian, culturally diverse world.

Courses you'll lead include exercises to help planters reflect individually, relate to their team, and practice mission in their city. After each course, planters submit a workbook that receives written feedback from a Fuller expert. The final project is writing or revising a comprehensive church planting plan.

The Professional Certificate Cohort Bundle Includes:

10% discount on a bundle of 10 or more Professional Certificates (normally $950)

Three training sessions with our Church Planting Director on how to lead your cohort

Documentation and digital tools for leading successful, online cohorts for your network

“The Fuller Certificate cohort has been a rich and massively encouraging season of learning and fellowship. The regular content has been specifically tailored to help planters think about how to best reach our contexts, how to maximize our giftings, and how to form disciples and communities who go on to make more disciples.”

- Jon & Blessy Tran trained by City to City Australia
