4 Chair Discipling Trainers

How to Join

The heartbeat of Sonlife Ministries is to multiply disciple-making efforts, locally, regionally and globally. We want to equip ministry leaders with necessary tools to better align their ministries around the person of Jesus. If you are interested in multiplying our training in your ministry context, here are some basic checkpoints we look for…

  • Read the 4 Chair Discipling book by Dann Spader
  • Attend a Sonlife 4  Chair or Muvement Seminar or participate in a Live 2:6 group (or previously have attended Strategy or Growing a Healthy Church Seminars)

If you’ve met these basic requirements, then we’d love to hear from you and begin the process of becoming one of our Certified Trainers. We offer limited certification during the course of the year. The recommended certification is offered at our annual D-Conference held in January. Secondly, we offer certification at limited National Sonlife Training events. Training events will indicate if certification is offered.

Please feel free to contact Joel Zaborowski (email: joel.zaborowski@sonlife.com), Associate Director of Leadership Development, or call our national office (971) 340-4675 (PST).
