Spiritual Formations Course

Registration for the Spiritual Formations Online course is open! Click here to get more details and register.

LifeThrive's Spiritual Formations curriculum is a unique approach to understanding how believers are created and equipped by God for personal service in God's Kingdom.

Who can benefit from Spiritual Formations?

  • Believers who have not yet found a "place" of service within a ministry
  • New members in a congregation/ministry
  • New believers

The Problem:

People often jump into ministries because they get asked, not because it is their calling or gifting.

A recent Christianity Today article noted that turnover is a significant issue with some churches turning over 70% in 3 to 5 years.

A study conducted by Fuller Theological illustrates that between 30 to 40% of seminary graduates leave the ministry in approximately five years.

The Solution:

The most critical factor ANY believer must understand is their uniqueness before God. This will help:

  • Eliminate a need to compare themselves to others
  • Identify key traits and attributes that exist for engaging and serving other people
  • Clarify their spiritual gifting for serving the Body of Christ
  • Establish the groundwork for identifying their purpose in life 

In the past, the Spiritual Formations content has been delivered in person by a LifeThrive trainer through one-day seminars or three 2-hour weekly group sessions. Also, a few local pastors have been trained and certified to provide the materials in live regional settings.

Spiritual Formation: Understanding your role in the body of Christ

The Spiritual Formations Workbook helps believers know more about how they are created and equipped for personal service in God's Kingdom.

When most believers get asked about their purpose in life, they answer: "To glorify God." That's a terrific answer!

However, to each unique individual, that purpose is fulfilled differently. No two people can answer that question concerning their calling in the same way.

In this workbook, Dr. Coker helps you discover how your genetics, cultural background, and Spiritual Gifts provide you with a roadmap to fulfilling that purpose, both personally and spiritually.

You get a step-by-step process to define the exact path to YOUR position in the Body of Christ. You will experience more joy and fulfill your calling in life as you navigate and implement the course in this 42-page printable workbook (PDF format).

“Life-changing for my team and me”


The spiritual/Personal Formations course was life-changing for my team and me. It helped to reveal who I was and reinforced my confidence in who God created me to be. Taking our team through this material was one of the best investments I could have made in each of them. Many didn’t know what their giftings were and this helped to shed light on the potential that they had within them. It allowed each individual to become healthier and willing to work in their areas of giftedness.

It helped me as a leader to move each person to areas of responsibility that would allow them to work in their areas of strength. Going through this course helped my team to become a better version of themselves.

The best part of the course was Chuck Coker. Chuck is so knowledgeable about this material and has such an incredible heart for people that it makes this course a must for anyone looking to reach their God-given potential and build healthy teams.
