Titus hosts and/or partners with other organizations to hold a number of events. Read on to learn more about the Titus Discernment Interviews, Coaching 101 Workshop, and the Titus Boot Camp currently on our docket:
Church Planter Boot Camp June 4-7, 2018 (Northern Virginia)
The Titus Institute offers intensive training in the key principles and practices utilized by successful church planters. These training opportunities are presented in a four-day “boot camp.”
Planters are encouraged to include key members of their launch teams in order to provide a common conceptual framework for the work they are undertaking. Instruction in the core concepts is interspersed with Team Exercises to allow planters and teams to ‘flesh out’ how the principles will be translated into their setting.
The church planting teams leave the training with:
- A draft ‘Launch Plan’ for their new church in which they have defined the major elements of their ministry;
- Key strategies fleshed out;
- Accomplishable major milestones identified; and
- An initial time line to follow.
This page will tell you all you need to know.
Coaching 101 Workshop April 13-14, 2018 (Pittsburgh)
During Coaching 101, you’ll dive into the coaching process, explore techniques for asking powerful questions, practice active listening, and learn tools for strategic planning. Attendees leave this 1.5 day workshop with the ability to coach other ministry leaders at a basic, and yet proven effective, level.
This workshop is required for Coach Certification candidates, but is open to anyone interested in developing coaching skills.

Coaching 101 is portable! If you are interested in hosting the workshop on-site to make it more accessible to your team, email Regional Director Jenni Bartling.
Church Planter Discernment Interviews (ongoing):
In the assessment process, we come alongside leaders to help them discern if the ministry of church planting is a good match for them. We want to be sure that the right planter is in the right place at the right time. We work with them to identify and define their God-given talents, acquired ministry skills, personal temperament and behavioral style, and show how these match up with the intangibles required to plant a church successfully. The results identify where the candidate stands in relationship to the needed 13 characteristics of effective church planters (as identified in the research of Dr. Charles Ridley) and recommends a plan for continuing development.
The process takes place in three phases:
- It begins with an informal, on-line “pre-assessment” questionnaire which can be completed at the candidate’s own pace.
- The candidate takes additional personality surveys, and engages in an in-depth, behavioral interview (with their spouses, if applicable) lasting several hours.
- The final phase is a one and one-half day of group exercises with other candidates.
You can schedule interviews anytime. Contact Jenni Bartling to learn more.
ReMissioning Workshops January through March, 2018 (Northern Virginia)
Our 2018 Remissioning series will launch in January; registration is still open. Email Tim Howe to get details. This page will tell you more about workshops, which can also be brought to the location of your choice.
ReMissioning Workshops provide the opportunity for congregational leaders to work out their ideas together and gain clarity and agreement about where they are going and how they will get there. The planning process is helpful for new churches, existing churches wishing to stimulate growth, and for new networks and dioceses wanting to stimulate and support regional church multiplication. The process normally includes the following objectives:
- Identifying necessary goals & milestones;
- Developing strategies to accomplish the goals & milestones;
- Identifying the resources needed;
- Building realistic time lines and budgets;
- Designing methods for monitoring and evaluating progress;
- Making course corrections when necessary.
