The Alongsider Experience is an initiative of The Navigators of Canada designed to help raise up disciple makers in various contexts who feel trained and supported as alongsiders.

This ten month program includes introductory training, skill workshops, book studies and one-on-one coaching.  We will equip you with the skills and disciplines necessary in order for you to help others grow in their faith, draw closer to God, join God in mission and become more like Jesus.  Participants can expect to invest 10 hours per month, which will include both weekly disciple making and coaching times and monthly online development and discussion sessions. In 2021, The Alongsider Experience is being offered in Hamilton and Calgary.
