A big-picture thinker who understands leadership dynamics well. Joe catches significant issues that slip by most religious leaders without notice. His fresh, humble perspective is the genius behind the Sophiculture movement.

The detail-oriented writer (and Joe’s wife) who packs all of the goodness of his insights into words. Her lessons and visuals simplify complex issues into step-by-step strategies. Her courses are vital for anyone aspiring to impact our culture.

We know that ministry can be hectic, so all of our courses are self-paced with an add-on for group coaching. We also realize that the only way that you can truly understand a subject is by practicing it in real life. That is why our courses are full of hours of exercises, questions and challenges.
In addition to our online classroom, we also offer the option to take part in our Facebook group discussions. These provide you with an organized place to get feedback on how you’re applying the course principles to your daily life.
Once or twice a year, we offer paid group coaching for this free course. The coaching covers all 30 lessons in 10 weeks of videochats, email reminders and accountability.

We can approach our disagreements knowing that we each have a relatively shallow understanding of the theological realities in which we operate. Let’s agree that as the blood flows from Jesus, our head, through each of us, we can all make valuable contributions to his body (regardless of denominational preference).
It’s fun to get to know people who are different from us. We can honor these differences instead of using them as reasons to look down on others. We don’t need to have God figured out in order to enjoy him with those around us.
Love is greatest. This principle must be coupled with the sole authority of scripture. Together, they are the train tracks that carry us to our desired destination.
God values relationship over behavior, for relationship determines behavior. Knowing our Father intimately gives us confidence to run to him for the strength to obey when we’re weak, and not to run away from him. With this in mind, we make relationship-building with our students a priority in our discussions at “The Sophiculture Circle” Facebook Group.
Intimacy with the Godhead is learned, like anything else, through trial and error. We try out different perspectives until our thoughts fit together with the Holy Spirit’s voice inside of us. Experimentation must be acknowledged as the starting point for each of the scriptural frameworks that God gives to us as individuals. We teach our students to notice their mental experimentation and discuss it openly, without pressure or judgment.
Principles are like circuits that our minds create for our thoughts to run through. Biblical contexts are like codes that tell us where each principle fits into God’s mind. If we ask him, he will show us how his thoughts fit together so that our thoughts will reflect his truth. This is the primary goal of Sophiculture Academy.
Bouncing our thoughts off of our friends can help to show us where our principles are are weak and where they are strong. Setting a regular time to talk and pray together boosts our growth and increases our cultural impact. Our academy will help you, when you are ready, to create your own prayer partnership and mastermind group.
