Fundable Church University is incredible, but it isn't right for everyone. Here are answers to the most frequently asked questions so you can make the best decision for you.
The FUNDABLE CHURCH UNIVERSITY program begins as soon as you register! You'll instantly get access to the FCU Facebook Group. Matriculation begins immediately when you enroll. Pre-Work Material begins on Monday, September 2nd, and into the following week prior to the course content. The Fall Quarter officially ends the week of November 15th. Plus lifetime access to the recorded trainings and LIVE Q & A sessions and a host of extras, some of which are not disclosed unless you enroll in the program! Once you enroll in the Fundable Church University, you’ll receive 8 Weeks LIVE Coaching and training with new pre-recorded lessons releasing weekly, beginning the in September. We'll have a Facebook LIVE Welcome Weekend Orientation. All Material Will Be Available In Your Private Portal for access throughout the program and beyond. We believe you all are committed to supporting each other in our journey to make a huge impact. You’ll also be learning all of the our fundable program blueprint that we've used to create 6 and 7 figure programs. The best part is that you’ll have the time and support that is truly needed to create sustainability and implement a true solution for your community using proven strategies and best practice tactics.
Yes they will! You will be able to be on the calls live + download and listen to each training call as many times as you want. Then, access the Q & A sessions inside of the private facebook group when needed. The information provided on these calls will help you to master every part of your community program building process no matter what stage you church is in and what you have tried in the past. If you have questions, you can post in the Private FB Group or email our team at [email protected]
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you have second thoughts about your purchase, be sure to contact us during the pre-work period and we will give you a full refund. Please be advised that since this is an information product and delivery of knowledge cannot be reversed, once the first module is published, we will not issue refunds.
Absolutely! You’ll have the chance to experience laser coaching with us on every single training call during the Q&A section that takes place at the end. The FB group is also a great place to post your questions so that other members who may have the same questions can see the answers or chime in as well.
Yes. we believe so. These tools and tactics work for all nonprofits with a service based component. Our past experience as a nonprofit was as a church, so we understand the various nuances of being a religious faith-based organization operating community programs and getting funding. However we do encourage churches to start secondary community based nonprofit organizations based on the types of services they will be providing. If you’re still unsure, email us: [email protected]
Actually, this program is not a grant writing class specificially. It is an implementation program that teaches you the step-by-step process to build and launch fundable community programs. Because we teach you how to set up your programs to reflect what grant funders are looking for, it takes care of 80% of the information asked in most grant applications. The other 20% is you simply being able to answer their unique questions and articulate how you will get results through your program in a way that aligns with their mission. We NEVER needed to hire a grant writer for our programs because we knew exactly what our solution was and how it operated, and we were awarded millions. If you truly believe you need a grant writing class, we suggest you go through The FUNDABLE CHURCH UNIVERSITY first and see just how much more empowered you are with your specific grant ready information. Another difference is, this is not simply a course, it’s an implementation program. We provide you with education, coaching enhancement and an engaging community to increase your chances of success significantly. FCU also has resources that go deep on some of the biggest barriers around getting funding for churches, like being not losing your faith-identity and how to operate as a nonprofit corporate structure. While we realize that there are many amazing instructors teaching you how to write grants, We’re teaching you how to build a “fundable” organization through grant ready programs and practices which is usually only reserved for higher priced consulting packages. We are here to teach this information in a way that ministries and churches can understand that doesn’t feel out of sync and un-Christ like. This program has the perfect mix of structure that really support a natural and authentic program creation process, and provide transformation and clarity. It also gives a biblical approach that enables you to grasp the process and use your ministry vision to be faith-driven, mission focused, and avoid burnout.
We designed this course for senior leaders of churches and faith-driven nonprofits who want to impact their communities through a more concentrated focus. Whether you have full time staff, part time staff or volunteer leaders, you’ll find it helpful. It’s also great for bivocational pastors since you can work through the trainings and resources on your own schedule, because you have access to the recordings.
Once you enroll, you’ll get an email with confirmation of your log in details. You’ll access all the recorded LIVE videos and resources from that private membership site. All Q & A sessions happen live inside the Facebook group.
We understand that your schedules may be busy or full depending on when you enroll in this program. This is why we make all the trainings available for download so that you and your team can go through the information as needed. However, you do need to watch all the trainings in order. The program has a progression, and one strategy builds on top of another. Ideally, once you complete all twelve training lessons you will have a comprehensive action plan on building fundable and sustainable community programs for your church or ministry.
That’s Good! That means there's a need.
Where there's one need, there are several, and most organizations DON’T solve all the problems in your area. (Remember what we said earlier about most services being ineffective). That’s because they are not complete.
Your job is to discover how to fill the gaps where others have let them down, left them hanging or couldn’t meet the need, and create a new program with a specific solution in mind that rescues them from their issues and actually helps them achieve the change and results they've been looking for.
We’re going to be honest here and tell you that your chances of getting a program funded without tax exempt status is a lot slimmer than if you had one. For this reason, we suggest that you NOT enroll in this program, but take our Nonprofit Startup Formula course instead. Learn more here www.nonprofitstartupformula.in
FUNDABLE CHURCH UNIVERSITY is a nonprofit business building program and has some LIVE elements to it. But the recordings and Q & A Session are available for you to see at your leisure. However, at a minimum, you should plan to invest 2-3 hours per week into building your nonprofit structure and program. A small time investment considering you're building a solution for your community and an asset for your organization that could be connection you need to create jobs in your ministry, expand your ministry budget and perhaps receive several thousands of dollars in funding. You want to make sure you work with your church ministry team and follow the processes/homework with them while implementing the tactics and strategies that you learn to get your program up and running.
This course is designed for churches of any size, but it's ideal for churches that are currently able to invest in the community program building process, as there will be additional tools, systems and material needed outside of this coaching program to successfully build and launch your program. So if your church or nonprofit is currently experiencing an economic hardship, then a better resource to begin with would be The Fundable Church resource center, and join the waitlist for the next semester opening early Summer 2019. This way you can work on promoting a campaign within the ministry to raise or make available additional resources needed to secure the other mechanics of successful program operations. Then once you're ready, come back and do the FUNDABLE CHURCH UNIVERSITY we’d love to have you.
Yes. The RECORDED training will require login access for one person, however, the recordings are downloadable videos and will work for group showings and the PDF workbooks are printable and shareable with your team. It's designed for your Founder, CEO, Pastor, board, staff team or key volunteers to work through together.
Have additional team members who you want to experience FCU with for your organization? We have you covered. With your enrollment into FCU you are licensed for use for your organization under the same login, however if you have other leaders that you want to join in, simply buy them an all access pass the "The Quad" Facebook group, where they can participate as a team player. They can be added at a rate of $97 per person for specific Facebook Membership group access, where we host LIVE Q & A and special trainings.
**Please note, this does NOT give additional course portal access, only access to the Coaching Community.
The program is $597 (USD) or 7 monthly payments of $97, during this special spring enollment period. That’s 40% off the retail price of $997. One purchase includes lifetime access to the recorded content and a licence for your church to print or download the workbooks so you can go through the material together with your board, staff or key volunteers.
You can go through the course as an individual if you want, but it's designed for team use. Ideally, a group leaders (ministers, administrator, staff, key volunteers) can work through the material and create an implementation plan together.
