“I was surprised at the depth Dominic provides, just in his free videos.

“He gets to the heart of the matter, with so much experience compared to other ‘gurus’ I’ve seen advertised. He focuses on the fundamentals with fresh insights. He’s a gifted teacher. He focuses on what you most need to know, which is very refreshing. I also appreciate that he does not overfocus on making money like other ‘gurus’ which, for me, is a complete turn-off.”

– Lynn Kapusinski, Faith Journeys Foundation

Module 3

activity audit

What are you doing? How does it serve your mission, and help people?

Module 4

building connection

How are you staying in touch with people? Can you identify superfans?

Module 5

Your website is the hub to your rose window. Is it cluttered, or clear?

Module 6

your movement

Create a space for your fans to reinforce the lifestyle together.

how does it work?

For 3 weeks, we all meet for 1 hour online, Monday’s & Thursdays. 

Get 20 minutes of theory. Then we all spend 20 minutes in silence, to draft notes. End with 20 minutes to roundtable responses, feedback, and questions.

Together, we work on our ministries live. No more procrastination.
