Through group-based learning and discussion, you and your community group can learn more about Scripture and gain a better understanding of the Christian faith. Learn more about our Online Equipping Courses.
To request an Online Equipping course for a community group, ONE (and only one) member of the community group should follow the steps below.
7. Submit the form to send a notification email to the moderator and to each participant.
All participants should then watch for an email:
Each group member who submits their registration and payment will receive an email invitation from Pathwright to join the course.
Any member of an official Watermark community group can initiate the process. Before you start the registration, you should decide the following:
Only one person in the Community Group should complete this first step.
All Online Equipping courses require a moderator.
If no one in your group feels qualified or willing to moderate the course, have a conversation with your community shepherd. The community shepherd may be willing to moderate the course for you or may be able to recommend someone. In rare cases, a community director may be available to moderate.
Please don't assign anyone to be the moderator without first having had a conversation with that person and receiving their assent.
When the group registration is complete, each Community Group member that you registered receives a message via email communicating next steps for completing their individual registrations and asking for course payment.
Each of these individuals must complete their registrations and submit course payment before the course will start.
The group moderator also receives an invitation to the course along with separate guidance for moderating courses in Pathwright.
For more information about the Moderator role and responsibilities, download "Moderator Roles and Requirements."
Yes. We request that you communicate with your community shepherd or community director if you intend to invite people from outside your community group to join your course.
To select someone from outside your group, select "Other" when you select the CG members who will join your course. If you select "Other," you receive a separate email message that you can forward to non-community group members.
Each community group member selected in the Request Form to take the Online Equipping Course receives a Registration Information email.
Each community group member should read this email and click the link “please submit your individual registration and course payment” to complete the registration process.
Other important information is provided in this Registration Information email:
Yes, you can complete the registration for anyone for whom you will be submitting payment.
IMPORTANT: Make sure to use that person's Watermark Account email address for the Course Invitation.
When you register, selecting yourself and/or an immediate family (from the list provided) auto-fills all pertinent information. Please use the email address provided in the auto-fill. This connects your Watermark account and your Pathwright account, making signing in easier and allowing you to more easily track the Watermark Equipping courses you've completed.
Once all members of the Community Group that were selected in the initial Course Request Form have submitted their registration and paid for the course, a Course Invitation is sent to the each learner’s email inbox.
The Introduction, the syllabus, and any optional resources are available at watermark.pathwright.com upon acceptance of the Course Invitation.
