What if there was way to grow people's faith that fits people's life? 

Core Training for Christians is a series of online courses that help people engage the Bible deeply, think like Jesus, and become like Him from the inside out. 

We were baptizing dozens of people but struggled to ground and grow them in their faith.


Small groups? Helpful, but not enough and only a small number of them actually signed up.

Classes? Hard to get them to given up more time to go to another event at the building. 

1 on 1 discipleship? Our people felt like they didn’t know where to start. 

Sunday morning services? Obviously important but not enough to help them learn the faith and how to live it out. 

That’s when I thought, why not put faith-growing resources where people actually live - online?


Now people can watch the lessons when they have a few extra minutes. 

Now there’s tools to facilitate 1 on 1 discipleship. 

Small groups can watch and learn together. 

And it’s all accessible right where people live - online!


On demand & in the palm of their hands.

Core Training for Christians is an online video curriculum that can help any church improve its discipleship process by putting discipleship tools in the palm of people's hands.



A Nielsen study from 2018 shows that the average U.S. adult spends nearly 6 hours per day watching video content, and more than an hour of that time is dedicated to online video.


These courses put the content our people need in a format they already use on devices they already own. Their phone, tablet, and computer - where they live everyday.

One Subscription = Access For All

Your monthly subscription gives everyone in the congregation access to all existing and future courses to use as part of your ongoing discipleship process to help them honor God and live the life they were made for.

Cory DeForrest

"The Bible Survey course is a clear and helpful study for anyone from the non-believer seeking answers to the long-time Christian that has never understood the overall story and the structure the Bible is built upon."

Rob Branham

"As a Church planter on the mission field it is always very hard to find materials in order to mentor or disciple new people that we have made connections with. The material often goes too deep or not deep enough! The thing I love most about John's videos is that it really covers the most relevant material and it can be used in one on one situation or small groups!!! Perfect for our application in Australia! LOVE IT"

Tollie Rogers

People are loving the  Core Beliefs class.  We are doing it for our Bible study each week.  We watch the lesson then unpack what you taught in the lesson.

If you have questions or want to try before you buy, reach out to me at john@johnwhittaker.net and let's arrange time to talk.  

Instructions for getting started:

  • Choose the option that fits your church size from above.

  • Create a Church Admin Account (This is not the account that your congregants use to log in, but the administrative account for your billing, etc.).

  • After you've set up the Church Admin Account, sign out.

What's the difference between these resources and
other online resources?
There are resources that are like online libraries - like Right Now Media, the Bible Project, and others. There are some really good materials in these libraries and you should take advantage of them. But if libraries were all we needed, we wouldn't have schools. We need training that's more intentional and sequential. And that's where these courses come in. This is foundational curriculum that takes disciples somewhere, providing the essential groundwork for reading the Bible, forming a Christian worldview, and putting on the character of Christ.
