Is this training for adult or youth discipleship group leaders?
Eric's focus is on youth but after providing this training to hundreds of parishes, a common reflection is "wouldn't these same principles apply to adult discipleship groups?" Our answer is YES! The same principles and practices have been used with adult discipleship and the fruit has remained consistent.

We currently offer three different licenses for this training. If you purchase the Individual Study, you are granted permission for one person to go through the training. If you would like to offer a group training for your parish, please see the other licensing options.
