Mature Christians aren't born,

they're trained

These video courses are the perfect resource to help your people engage their Bible deeply and grow as a disciple of Jesus.

When we fail to provide the training and guidance they need, we see things like:

New and young believers who remain immature in their faith

Older believers who feel unequipped to help others grow

Timid, shakable Christians that don't make more disciples 

People who want to grow, but are stuck floundering without a plan

And creating a quality training plan is challenging and time consuming.

That's why I created these resources.

I struggled along for several years trying to disciple others using various resources and tools.


Then I was introduced to John's Core Training for Christians curriculum. I have been so impressed with the strides my discipleship groups have taken since we made the switch."

The thing I love most about John's videos is that they cover the most relevant material for new believers and they can be used in one on one situations or small groups! Perfect for our application! LOVE IT

Core Training for Christians is a fabulous tool for helping people understand fundamental Christian principles and grow in their Christian walk. They are my go-to tool for mentoring.

Why these courses matter

As a pastor, your #1 desire is to see your people growing in their faith and living as disciples of Jesus. But that takes an intentional plan and the right resources. Some resources are too shallow. Some are too academic. And most aren’t flexible enough to fit your discipleship process. 


And it can be frustrating because you know how important it is but you’re so busy you don’t have time to create your own.

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 grow in their faith  and be equipped to help others grow too.

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. 
My Promise to You
I care most about helping people grow in their faith and helping churches make disciples. If you don't think these resources are going to help make that happen then let me know some time during the first month and I'll refund your money.  And you can always cancel at any time
John's been featured at
and churches of all sizes both in the states and around the world.
