Although the principles of the MyFriends Lifestyle are simple, it takes time for these to become natural habits. For this reason we slow the training down so it takes three to five months to complete.
All the groups participating in your Learning Community Gather online with other small groups each month to learn the MyFriends Lifestyle. In the weeks between each Learning Community, you meet with your group to Grow, Coach, and GGo. Each group nominates a person from their group to be a coach throughout the MyFriends journey. The coaches meet together for a Coaching Circle between the Gather and Grow weeks.
It is easier to develop a MyFriends Lifestyle if you have three to five friends who are going through the training with you. This will allow you to form a local MyFriends peer coaching group where you can help one another live this lifestyle during and after the formal training rounds.
You will have the opportunity to interact with other participants through instant messaging – to share prayer and praise points, ask questions, and encourage one another.
