We understand that sometimes the BASIC or CORE schedule needs to shift in order for you to offer it. Please know that we bless that—you are absolutely allowed to lead it however you feel lead and fits your group the best.
However, any deviation away from the schedule we've posted in the Facilitator's Guide will not be considered a BASIC/CORE for the purposes of listing on our website. The reason for that is because we send many people to the BASIC/CORE site, and it's important to us that we're sending them to something specific and consistent. For example, the one in their city will be the same as the one being hosted in on the other side of the world (although the food may be different :).
If your only option is a one-hour weekly gathering, you may prayerfully consider if one of our other studies might be a better fit. The hope is to create an environment where a person can encounter God, with room to breathe, pray together and share conversation. The studies for Wild at Heart or Captivating Experience, Get Your Life Back, Moving Mountains, or Beautiful Outlaw, all are designed for weekly gatherings with shorter content, any of which could be a great option.
If you are still committed to BASIC or CORE, we understand, and know that you have full freedom and permission to format them however you need; you'll still get access to all of the materials for free. The only difference is, outside of the current format, we won't be able to list your event on the BASIC/CORE website.
