A 12-month cohort-based training in practical spiritual formation

Find Your Center

The Gravity Formation Course trains you to notice how God is already at work in your life so you can participate more fully in the life God shares with us.

The Gap in our Discipleship

Most Christians struggle to bridge the gap between what we KNOW and what we DO.

We try to bridge this gap in various ways:

“Trying harder” - doubling down on willpower and behavior modification.

"Getting smarter” - learning more theology and finding better teaching.

“Getting zapped” - seeking out powerful, supernatural experiences.


But here’s what we’ve noticed:

These strategies may have short-term benefits, but long-term they do not produce mature, wise followers of Jesus.

They don’t train us to trust Jesus with our actual lives, and they don't result in the transformation of our lives on the deepest level.

So how do we bridge the gap?

Beyond information and behavior

To bridge the gap, we can’t go straight from knowledge to behavior (Words to Works).

Instead, we need to integrate a more fundamental element of our humanity into the equation: our motivations and desires (Wants).

Getting “below the surface” of our lives is what the Sermon on the Mount is all about, and it’s vital if we’re going to formed in the way of Jesus.


Training that integrates words, works, and wants

Once we can notice and name our deepest desires in God's presence, we can begin to discern how God is at work in our lives.

We can then discern our desires and integrate our full humanity into a holistic model of transformative spirituality, rooted in love.

We’ve trained hundreds of Christians from all over the world in this formation framework, and it works: people learn to be more at home in God's love, and their lives are filled with more peace and joy.

"In my advocacy work, I became more settled in knowing that my identity, security and belonging is in Christ and not what other people say or what I do or what I have. My view of God has changed and it has been so life-giving for me!"

What you’ll learn:

  • How to be truly present to yourself, others, and God
  • How to listen to the Holy Spirit and discern what God’s saying and doing in your everyday life
  • How to hear and respond to good news from Jesus (not striving to follow good advice)
  • How to proclaim good news to loved ones, neighbors, anyone!
  • How to pass on what you're learning to others

The outcome in your life:

  • You'll learn to be at home in the love of God.
  • You'll learn to notice the work of God's Spirit in and around you.
  • You'll learn to discern and proclaim the gospel of the kingdom of God in every situation.
  • You'll grow in your participation in the life God shares with us.

How it works:

1. A Weekly assignment (reading or an exercise)

You'll read a short article or do a brief exercise from the Gravity Formation curriculum each week before your cohort gathers.

2. A weekly gathering for conversation and training

You and 5-7 others participate in a weekly 75-minute video call with a certified Gravity Coach for one year. We’ve found that nothing replaces the power of this simple weekly rhythm.

3. An actual relationship with your coach

In addition to the weekly call, you’ll have your coach’s cell phone number. Our coaches create enough margin in their schedule to spend time with you on issues you might want to address “offline.”

Who is it for?

If you’re human, this will work for you.

We’ve had all kinds of people in coaching, and all kinds of people have experienced profound breakthrough in their ability to lead like Jesus in whatever context they find themselves.

Some examples of the kinds of people who have already benefited from our coaching process:

  • Pastors
  • Stay-at-home moms
  • Business owners
  • Small group leaders
  • College students
  • School teachers

"The course has been life-changing for me... just what I needed. I’ve previously enrolled in several 'discipleship' trainings and nothing has impacted me like this. Your personal approach to training and modeling for me was so insightful and spot on."

“With Gravity, I found a personal tribe for transformation and thought leadership, a discipleship toolkit to implement in our local church, a chance to finally be personally discipled by someone, and a new way of being in the world and the church.

"If you've ever desired a practice-based toolkit that's grounded in God's love, then don't look any further. The Gravity Formation Course is theologically sound and generous, systematically simple but expansive, and pedagogically creative yet accessible. It will change your life and the lives of those around you who want to live and love like Jesus but need someone to show them the way."

Bryan Mills
Lead Pastor, Meadow Heights Church, Fredericktown, Missouri
