What are Faithwalking Circles?
Communities, congregations, organizations
A Faithwalking Circle is a group of people in an identified community (congregation or 501-c-5, neighborhood, workplace) who are seeking to master the Faithwalking content and utilize it as they live missionally in their context.
Faithwalking Circles teach, coach, and empower others, mobilizing them to live missionally in their neighborhoods, workplaces and third places.
Faithwalking Core Four
Faithwalking Circles develop their own facilitators, presenters, and coaches to offer and contextualize the elements of the Faithwalking Core Four curriculum in their networks or geography. They work to become self-sufficient.
The goal of Faithwalking Circles is to empower two interdependent learning communities - the greater Faithwalking team and the local Faithwalking Circle team - to function and learn together over time.

Yes. However, there are some levels of contextualization that may be present in each specific Faithwalking Circle.
What is required to become a Faithwalking Circle?
Becoming a Faithwalking Circle requires a process of dialogue and discernment in which the organization or group interested in becoming a Circle determines whether Faithwalking is a useful tool in their context to empower and facilitate in their members the journey of spiritual formation that leads to a missional life. This first decision happens during an exploratory phase that reflects a short-term commitment between the potential Circle and Faithwalking. If the decision is formally made to become a Faithwalking Circle, the sponsoring organization and Faithwalking make a specific agreement that will set the guidelines for a process of three phases that is usually completed in three or four years.
