International mission work has always been challenging, and the coronavirus pandemic exposed a number of weaknesses in common ministry models.


Now, as parts of the world begin to recover, many leaders are ready to resume missions activity and are looking for ways to do it more effectively and sustainably.

That's why we've created Barna CoLab | Activating Missions, sponsored by Mission India.

Frequently Asked Questions

When will the live gatherings occur for CoLab?

For Barna CoLab | Activating Missions, the live gatherings will be hosted on September 7, 14, 21, 28 and October 5 and 12 at 1P ET for 90 minutes. If you are unable to attend the live gathering, your team can still watch the recordings on demand in your online learning platform at a time that is convenient for you.

What is included in Barna CoLab?

Each Barna CoLab offers six weeks of online training and collaboration through six live virtual gatherings and breakout sessions (which are recorded and made available on-demand), PDF resource downloads, bonus videos and the ability to interact in an online discussion forum with other participants.

Can I attend CoLab if I'm not representing a church?

Yes! You are welcome to join Barna CoLab and will certainly still gain insights that can help you, but please keep in mind that our content will be crafted to primarily serve the church leaders.

How much of a time commitment is Barna CoLab?

Each week of the Barna CoLab includes 90 minutes of live content—one 60-minute session, plus a 30-minute breakout. Additionally, Barna recommends one to two hours of weekly work—either individually or as a team—throughout the six-week program.

What if I can’t attend the live virtual gatherings?

If you or your team are unable to attend the live virtual gatherings, you can watch them on-demand. There will be some advantages to participating live (including Q&A with the Barna team and special guests, plus live breakout rooms). However, through the online course platform Thinkific, you’ll still be able to interact and collaborate with others throughout the course of the program.

What if I want to add someone from my team after CoLab begins?

You can definitely add more participants from your team or church after your cohort launches for only $49/person (after you have reached the max number of your original purchase). Email us at and we will help register additional participants.

What platform(s) will Barna CoLab be on?

We’ll use Zoom Webinars for the live virtual gatherings, so you’ll need a Zoom account to participate. Everything else in the program (on-demand sessions, downloads, discussion forum) will be on Thinkific (Barna Courses), a high-quality online course platform. The Barna team will get you a Thinkific login that will give you access to everything you need to maximize your CoLab experience.

Will I have access to all of the CoLab material after the six-week CoLab is finished?

You’ll have access to everything in Thinkific for your specific cohort for 30 days after the six-week program is complete.

Can I share these resources with friends and fellow leaders who are outside the cohort?

We would prefer that only the people who register and pay to participate in the cohort have access to the videos and resources.
