mOS Cohort Application

This mOS Cohort is for leaders seeking to launch new churches capable of multiplication. Participants will  learn and apply the new mOS process tool to discern a contextually specific multiplication model and develop strategic and tactical plans for using it in a specific launch project. This Cohort begins in September 2024 and runs for nine months. This exclusive peer-to-peer experience is limited to 10 participants. Applicants must have a strong endorsement from a sponsoring leader or organization. Click here to download an information packet on this cohort for church planters.

Weighing the Cost

The mOS Cohort experience represents a significant investment of time and energy by the participant, the sponsor, and the mOS equipping team, and a significant financial investment. We take seriously the stewardship of this unique, exclusive experience. The learnings from this cohort will likely impact 1,000s of churches in the future. 
 
Selecting candidates who are compatible with the purpose and goals of this cohort is critical to the health and livelihood of the participating planters and to the success of the pilot. Implementing a new operating system is not for the faint of heart, and will require a deep conviction to implementing new wineskins. The journey will require sacrifice, and will certainly be met with spiritual warfare.
 
We ask that candidates do a serious self-reflection and assessment to weigh the costs and to ensure there is a solid fit before applying. Please do not apply if you or your sponsor have any question about your fit and compatibility. We encourage you to discuss any questions or uncertainties you have with us before applying.

Application Process

The application process includes the following steps:
  • Sponsor Endorsement and Nomination

    The mOS design team has empowered partnering leaders and organizations to sponsor participants in this mOS Cohort. Your first step is to get a strong endorsement and referral from a sponsoring leader or organization. Each sponsor will have criteria for assessing the compatibility of candidates for this initiative. Obtain a 500 word or less written referral / endorsement from a participating sponsor that you can paste into your online application in step 3 below.

  • Candidate Self-Assessment of Fit

    After receiving a referral / endorsement from a sponsor, applicants are requested to do a candid self-assessment of their fit. This reflection should consider the qualifications section, expectations section, and weighing the cost section from this page. Please weigh your decision carefully before proceeding to the online application in step 3.

  • Submit Online Application

    After completing steps 1 and 2 above, continue to the online application on this page. Be sure to review your self-assessment results with your sponsor before completing the application. The application requires you to provide your sponsor endorsement, your self-assessment, and your agreement to the terms of the grant and cohort expectations. The application takes less than 30 minutes to complete. You will be notified within 7 days on whether you are being selected for a final onboarding interview.

  • Onboarding Interview and Acceptance

    The final step in the process is an online compatibility interview with your sponsor and the mOS Team. The primary purpose of this call is to review the basic expectations for participants and to get their commitment to proceed with participating. Approved candidates will be given advance reading and homework assignments to be completed before the initial face-to-face gathering in Raleigh, NC in September 2024.
