Culture change starts with YOU
Culture transformation doesn't start with a system, it starts with YOU as a leader. That's why the first journey of Gravity Leadership Academy is called Find Your Center.
In Find Your Center, you learned to ground your life and ministry is the strong center of gravity of a life of paying attention to and participating in God's kingdom. You learned a pathway for an everyday spirituality rooted in noticing and responding to God's presence.
Moving out from the center
I'm Ben Sternke, cofounder of Gravity Leadership, and I want to invite you to continue your journey of bringing lasting transformation to your culture by signing up for the second journey of Gravity Leadership Academy: Establish Your Orbit.
We'll take that strong center of gravity you established in Find Your Center, and begin to help you extend it outward toward those around you: your family, your neighbors, your friends, and those you lead.
This isn't about adding extra burdens to add to an already-too-busy life. This is about learning to live ONE life on mission with God.

The Gravity Leadership folk are the real deal. Taking Jesus as their primary reference point, they help churches develop discipleship practices that can go to scale. Thumbs up!”Alan Hirsch, author and missional pioneer
In my role networking a movement of thousands of congregations across North America, I’ve been in the hunt for the brightest and best biblically-grounded resources for local church development and discipleship. My outcome? Gravity Leadership. Smart, anointed, fresh, effective, extraordinary. I’m a huge fan.Jim Lyon, General Director, Church of God (Anderson)

I'm not sure I can afford this!
We get it! You're trying to steward the resources God has given you, and this is a significant investment.
But think about it this way: you can go through this training for about the same price you'd pay to go to a church conference this year. If you go to the conference, you'll walk away with a notebook full of ideas but not much else.
What if you skip the conference this year and invest in your own transformation and training? It will pay spiritual dividends for years to come.
How much time will this take?
90-120 minutes per week. We know this feels like a lot of time to invest, especially when it seems we're all super busy. But here's what we've found: the time you spend investing in your own transformation and training pays dividends that far exceed the investment.
Also, you can't really "shortcut" your way to transformation. It really does take significant investment. So we won't apologize for the high bar. It's definitely worth it.
When will the calls be scheduled?
Once we get a final registration list, we'll send out a poll to find a time that works for each cohort group. If everyone brings some flexibility to the table, we almost always find a time that works for everyone.
What if I sign up and it doesn’t work for me?
If you give yourself to the process, we are confident that God will work in it and bring transformational results to your life and ministry.
But, if you find it's not for you, we've got you covered. We have a 30-day 100% money-back guarantee if you're not satisfied with the training. We're taking the risk out of it for you.
I'm not a pastor. Can I still benefit from this?
Absolutely. Especially in this first journey of finding your center. We've trained small group leaders, accountants, entrepreneurs, and homemakers to become transformational leaders.
How do I know this will work in my context?
Here's something we hear a lot: "Will this work for me? I'm leading a ______ (megachurch / small church / mainline church / charismatic church / liturgical church / house church / older church / church plant / small group / business / family)."
Short answer is Yes, this works in every context, because we're imitating the life of Jesus, and we believe he shows us the way to be human. We've seen transformational results in all kinds of churches, all over the Western world.
Is this a video series I can watch on my own time?
No, this is a live coaching call or learning lab that you'll attend each week for 10 months. It's online training with a coach, moving through a process together. It looks a bit like the photo below:
Can my staff do this together?
Yes, and there is special pricing for a group wanting to go through together in the same cohort. There are also some practical issues we'd need to talk about, so if you're wanting to register a group of 6 or more, contact us to talk about it.
What kind of tech will I need?
The cohorts will meet via group video conference call, so to participate, you need to have:
- A high-speed Internet connection
- A computer with a video camera and microphone
- A quiet space where you can focus and work
What happens after I sign up?
When you click the registration button, you'll be taken to the checkout page, where you'll enter your email address and payment information. After that, you'll get an email from us about next steps.
