Launching The Ultimate Journey at your church

You may be asking, “How do I start The Ultimate Journey at my church?”

The Ultimate Journey has been implemented successfully across the country.  We will work with your church of any size to develop an implementation plan designed to meet your congregation’s specific needs.  We will help you train the first individual or team of individuals.  As a part of their training, they will be taught to train others at your site using our proven methods and resources. While new leaders will be raised and trained within your church as needed, we do provide ongoing training and support.

Starting a group is easy! Below is a basic implementation plan.  Naturally, we will work with you to modify as required.

10 Simple Steps To Start Phase 1 Small Groups

  1. You and/or selected leaders attend a Phase 1 Turbo or Weekly Phase 1 group. It is best if you and/or the leaders that attend are people who are willing to be open and transparent and have a passion to see people heal and grow. Sometimes pastors prefer going through Phase 1 with people they do not know. That can be arranged. In addition, someone may begin leading Phase 1 groups prior to going through Phases 2 & 3. However, we do require a commitment to go through the other phases in a timely manner so that participants will be able to go through them as they become ready for the next phase.
  2. Obtain the necessary start-up materials.
    • Phase 1 Facilitator Training Packet $25 (includes 5-hour training DVD with workbook and a Facilitator Registration Form to send in).  A separate packet must be purchased for each facilitator.
    • Phase 1 Book & Study Guide $50
    • Phase 1 Teaching DVD’s $45 (video instruction for leading each weekly meeting)
    • Phase 1 Leaders Guide online (no charge)
    • Total $120
  3. Watch the Phase 1 Facilitator Training DVD’s and complete the corresponding workbook found in the Facilitator Training Packet.
  4. Complete the Phase 1 Facilitator Registration Form and send it to Christ-Life Ministries. Once we have received a registration, each facilitator is given a password so they can gain access to the facilitator section of the website.
  5. Download the Phase 1 Leaders Guide and additional materials available to help you lead your groups.
  6. Determine the number of people who will be attending your first Phase 1 group. Remember to limit groups to no more than 4 participants per facilitator.
  7. Recruit participants for the initial group.  This is normally done through word of mouth or by using the advertising resources available through our store.  Many of our promotional materials are available as free downloads so you can print them yourselves or you can purchase them through our store at a nominal cost.
  8. Give participants instructions on how to order their materials.
  9. Detailed instructions for each session of the meetings are laid out in the Leaders Guide. You are also welcome to e-mail or call Christ-Life Ministries headquarters with any questions you have while you are going through this process. We are here to support you!
  10. Begin your groups and watch God work!

Will a representative from Christ-Life Ministries come to our church to train us?

While normally individuals come to our headquarters for training as described above, we are open to what God would direct for each situation.  As we develop an ongoing relationship with a church, it is not unusual for that church to want us to come and train on site.  This decision will be made on an individual church basis.
