What is a cohort?

Thrive defines a cohort as a group of congregations that work together with a shared purpose (like strengthening their congregation’s faith formation practices) in order to provide each other with encouragement and support. 

The Thrive team provides coaches to walk alongside these congregations as a listener, brainstormer, encourager and connector (e.g. connecting the congregation to resources, resource people and other congregations in the cohort whose trajectory is somewhat similar). Listen to past cohort members describe their experience in this seven-minute video.

Find more information on existing cohorts at the Thriving Practices webpage.
