What is a cohort?
A cohort is a group of people who gather for a common purpose. It was also a military unit that made up one-tenth of a Legion in the ancient Roman Empire.
Why join a cohort?
The best place to find community is in a local church. However, there are a lot of reasons to join a cohort at Christians of Northwest Arkansas - The Bookstore.
Sometimes the church isn't offering a group that teaches what you are wanting to study.
Sometimes your schedule doesn't match your church's schedule.
Group purchasing power gets you the best price on the resources you're studying.
What you study in your cohort can complement what you do in church (but not replace it).
Whatever the reason, you are welcome here!
What cohorts are forming?
Here are some short descriptions of all of the cohorts now forming:
Men's and Women's Bible Study
As the name suggests, this will be groups of men or women who gather for a Bible study. Your group will have the choice of any number of popular Bible studies to chose from, like ones from Priscilla Shirer or Warren Wiersbe.
Every so often, your cohort will meet to discuss one new release and select another for your next meeting. Your cohort will chose whether to meet every month, bi-monthly, or quarterly.
Christian Must Reads
Your group will go through a series of books that are widely regarded as books that every Christian must read at least once.
Your cohort will go through a series of books on theology. They will range from books by systematic theologians like Wayne Grudem or topical theology books.
General Spiritual Growth
This is a great cohort to join if you are interested in growing in your spiritual workouts - those exercises like Bible reading, prayer, fasting, evangelism, giving, and more.
