Answers to your questions:
Why facilitate the WAY to Well-being Workshop?
• Show others how to experience joy – even in difficult circumstances! – while sharing your own journey of faith, using a program that provides everything needed to get started immediately. You’ll receive a 44-page scripted Facilitator Manual, and marketing suggestions for developing your own seminar business. Teach people to overcome challenges and gain true fulfillment by living Jesus’ Beatitudes!
• Enjoy spiritual growth and greater financial prosperity.
Who is qualified to be a facilitator?
• Facilitators must be committed Christians. Humility and compassion are necessary in order to share your own struggles and listen with sensitivity. While you do not have to be a seasoned professional speaker, comfort working with small groups is necessary. Counseling skills are also helpful, since some of the participants will be experiencing emotional challenges. This is an experiential program with presentations limited to 10 minutes. Facilitators receive a detailed instruction manual.
How much time will I devote to the Facilitator Training and Workshop sessions?
• The Facilitator Training Program is 4-7 hours long (depending on the format.)
• The WAY to Well-being Workshop is designed to be a 10-week, 2-hours-per-week program. Workshops may be held one evening a week, on Saturday, or Sunday afternoon. (Facilitators may offer the workshop on an alternative schedule, such as 5 weeks, 4 hours per week, or another arrangement that works best for them and the participants.) Along with time to pray for the workshop participants, facilitators should plan about one extra hour per week to prepare for each workshop session.
What will the Facilitator Training cost me?
• The current price for the Facilitator Training is $350 per person. This includes the facilitator manual and a copy of the book, DISCOVER JOY – Well-being God’s Way. The price per couple is $450 including two copies of the manual; this represents a significant savings since we want to encourage couples to co-facilitate this workshop. *
Can I get paid for facilitating the WAY to Well-being Workshop?
• Facilitators send a commission to our company, Discovery Resources, for each participant trained. They retain the difference between the registration fee and the commission. At the recommended registration price of $300 per person for the 10-week program, facilitators earn $220 per participant. They recoup their full investment for the facilitator training after two participants have registered for the Workshop.
How is registration for the WAY to Well-being Workshop handled?
• The recommended registration price for the WAY to Well-being Workshop is $300 per person for the 10-week program, with a 10% discount for paying the full registration price at the first session. (Facilitators or churches may charge more or less for the workshop based on desired profit, anticipated costs, and financial status of participants.) The facilitator certification program will also provide suggestions for marketing the WAY to Well-being Workshop in your area.
• Facilitators send an $80 commission for each participant to our company, Discovery Resources.
• Upon receipt of the participant names and $80 per person commission, we will provide facilitators with a one-year subscription to “Dr. Joy’s E-Guidance” service for each participant. The subscription entitles participants to receive guidance by e-mail for personal challenges or questions from Dr. Joy on 6 separate occasions over the next year (a $390 value). It serves as a valuable follow-up source of assistance and support for learning how to live the Beatitudes on a daily basis. (Adam Bodzioch, co-author of Discover Joy in Your Marriage, is also available to consult with men or assist with marital situations.)
What are some of the benefits participants receive? In the WAY to Well-being Workshop, participants learn to …
• Enjoy greater intimacy with God, defeating discouragement and anxiety for greater peace and serenity.
• Love unconditionally, conquering loneliness, letting go of vulnerability, and growing in compassion to become a more faithful friend. (They also eliminate habits that keep God from using them for his awesome purposes!)
• Eliminate disharmony, leading to more unified, rewarding relationships and more patience with family members
What are the benefits for facilitators’ churches?
As facilitators help people gain true fulfillment by following a biblical approach to emotional, spiritual, and relational wellness, their churches will:
• Strengthen membership and encourage evangelism: The Way to Well-being Workshop touches all aspects of discipleship. It is a perfect complement to your Bible Study series in helping people become Christians. (DISCOVER JOY and the Workshop are effective tools for deepening an understanding of the Bible.) Chapters 8 and 9 of DISCOVER JOY (and the related Workshop sessions) also help to overcome common barriers to evangelism.
• Meet needs: This Workshop is a great shepherding tool. It will assist in meeting the spiritual and emotional needs of your church membership.
• Increase openness, spiritual mentoring, and unity: Both DISCOVER JOY, and The WAY to Well-being Workshop emphasize and demonstrate the value of spiritual partnering/mentoring relationships.
- Build faith: The Workshop is designed to inspire those who are discouraged by their life circumstances.
- Raise up leaders: This is great preparation for those who will assume a more significant leadership role.
