Coaching The Five Thresholds


Helping Others on The Journey to Faith

Since 2008, we have been helping thousands of friends explore the process of faith together. Many people think Jesus is cool, but faith seems abstract and unreachable. We will break this process down into 5 understandable stages, and give you practical advice for how to help your friends move through each "threshold."

In this resource you will find:

  • Our top resources to bring The Five Thresholds to your campus
  • Coaching materials to help you (a training presentation, cheat sheet, and course)
