There are several ways to participate in the Good Neighbor Experiment. We offer Virtual Cohorts and In-Person Cohorts. The main difference is that Virtual Cohorts have their workshops via Zoom and are with churches all over the country. In-Person Cohorts are based around a regional hub and do their workshops in-person in a central location.

Virtual Cohorts

The Neighboring Movement team leads two virtual cohorts each year. They start the third Saturday of January or the second Saturday of August. “Virtual” means that the workshops for your neighboring team are held online. After the workshops, your team is expected to host in-person small groups at your church using the Good Neighbor Experiment Curriculum.

Cost: $1000/Church, unless other grants/funding is provided.

Regional In-Person Cohorts

Our network of facilitators leads in-person cohorts around the country. An “in-person” cohort means that the workshops for your neighboring team will be in-person. The start time for these cohorts varies. You can check the registration page to see if there is an in-person cohort near you or you can contact us to start a cohort in your area. Cost for in-person cohorts varies based on the number of churches in the cohort and availability of funding from other sources (ie: denominations, grants, etc)

Cost Based on # of Churches in Cohort
6-7 Churches = $2400/church
8-9 Churches = $1850/church
10-11 Churches = $1500/church
12 Churches = $1200/church

Scholarships and Tuition Reduction

There are many ways to reduce the Good Neighbor Experiment tuition. Here are a few things you could try.

  • Partner with denominational funding sources
  • Apply for a grant from local foundations
  • Spread costs over multiple budget years
  • Recruit more churches

If funding is still an obstacle for your congregation be sure to contact us or note that during your registration.
