a Class

The Perspectives Coordinating Team is the core group of alumni who’ve caught the vision and decide to serve by organizing and running a local class. The launch of new classes is because passionate alumni want to offer the same experience to their community. Excellent two-day training with ongoing support and guidance is available for Lead Coordinators and their team.

Most Perspectives classes run on a semester basis, which we call Spring (January-May), Summer (June-July), and Fall (August-December). Planning documents must be approved by the Regional Director approximately four months before class starts. 


A Certified Coordinator is required to submit a Class Notice Form to the Regional Director to begin the planning process. The planning process includes developing strategies necessary for a successful class. The specific strategies are owned by the Lead Coordinator and supported by the regional team. Our prayer is the class will result in the launch of other classes as the Lead Coordinator chooses to coordinate again or will raise up more Lead Coordinators to continue mobilizing the community.

In addition to the Lead Coordinator, Perspectives classes require a team of volunteers to serve students in their journey through the Perspectives course. Volunteer service opportunities include:

Coordinating Team Workshop

The Coordinating Team Workshop is a two-day workshop that equips you to use your skills and gifts to partner with Perspectives to mobilize the Body of Christ in your area. You can impact your community by helping an existing class thrive or expand the momentum to other areas by launching a course in a new location. It’s open for the whole team to train together and is especially beneficial for the Recruitment Team Leader and Facilitator. There is a tremendous benefit when a team comes together, and the Lead Coordinator doesn’t have to be responsible for training the whole team.

These workshops also provide an opportunity to express our value of partnership with churches. Churches may select their members and send them to the Workshop. Also, those interested may request funds from churches to cover scholarships for workshop fees and reimbursements for travel.
