The purpose of our processes is the development of people, not the mastery of the material. Consequently, VantagePoint3 places a high value upon the preparation of those who facilitate this person-centered process.  Leaders will need to participate in facilitator training, which consists of two components: a facilitator retreat and a coaching relationship.


Facilitator retreats are offered throughout the U.S. and Canada. They help facilitators learn to lead a group, as well as to provide space for the facilitators to reflect on their own faith journey.


After the retreat, facilitators will be linked with a VantagePoint3 coach who will connect with them throughout the year. This coaching relationship helps facilitators:


• Continue to pay attention to their own formation.

• Talk through various content and learnings associated with the process.

• Think about the learning needs and next steps for group members, and implications for their church.


Facilitator training is an investment in a life-changing pathway. It provides a great context for the growth of facilitators who are equipped to intentionally walk alongside others as a way of life and ministry.
