Facilitating Growth: Meaning. Learning. Experiences.

Formerly known at The Big Think, Facilitating Growth is the training we get asked for above all others. It is effective across all ministries and businesses. We will explore questions like “What is experiential learning? Why is this the best way to learn? How do we facilitate experiential learning? How do we breakthrough the hard surface to get to the squishy middle where real change is forged?

Host Homes

“Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.” -Ro 12:13.

Need more practice? We’re looking to build a database for host homes.  Many ministries do events that bring people from other areas and a ChurchBNB list would be very helpful. And every host boasts that they receive the biggest blessing.

If you have any questions, please email Mel Steaple at

We work as teams in and through sport to equip and train coaches and athletes to be the image of Christ in sport, to reach the unchurched through summer sports camps, to train youth to be leaders now and to partner across the world with sports ministry trips to “go and make disciples. If you want to truly know a person, play a game with them. In one game you see bravery, fear, graciousness and bullying. In one season thrilling triumphs and humbling defeats are experienced. Sports reveals character and can be a vehicle to build character. WLS is a locker room of training and inspiration. Whether in a catalytic event–like KidsGames, the Bridge Conference–or in on going discipleship to athletes, coaches and parents of athletes, WLS works to equip people to become whole persons on the playing field of life.
