Frequently Asked Questions
How long is the membership term?
You pay once a month for as long as you wish to continue. This provides an ongoing way to support the work of Sophiculture Ministries while receiving additional benefits for contributing.
What if I am unhappy with the membership?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us and we will refund any payments made in the last 30 days.
When and where are the weekly meetings held?
Our videochat meetings (beginning at the time of our launch in 2020) will be on Zoom every Sunday at 3 pm Central time (CDT). This is 4 pm Eastern time (EDT), 2 pm mountain time (MDT), and 1 pm pacific time (PDT). You will receive a Zoom link every Saturday and a reminder every Sunday, both by email. Replays will be available.
If Sunday afternoon is not a good time for you, small group-coaching is available at the upper contribution tiers. These groups meet by videochat on other days of the week.
How does the private society work?
The private society is on a Christian social media network called Faithlife. It is similar to a Facebook group. Once you become a member, you will follow our instructions to set up a free Faithlife account and join the group. We have a men's group and a ladies' group. In your group, there will be an organized set of discussion threads where you can share your thoughts, questions, comments and discoveries, as well as start new threads.
Our live video chats are hosted separately on Zoom. You do not need an account to join these, just the link that we will send you.
Pre-Launch course access and discounts will be offered to our members through email.
Members with priority email access will be given a specific address where they can send their correspondence.
Do I need a Facebook account to join?
No, we do not use Facebook. Instead, we use a Christian platform associated with Logos Bible software called Faithlife. You will need a free Faithlife account to join our private social media groups.
Those who do not want to join the Faithlife discussions will still have full access to our Sunday afternoon videochats on Zoom.
How much does membership cost? Is it tax-deductible?
Membership comes with a $20, $50 or $100 monthly contribution to Sophiculture Ministries.
This contribution is not currently tax-deductible. You may cancel anytime by visiting your Teachable account page.
What are TFI listings?
TFI stands for "Trinitarian Foundational Intent." When you declare TFI, this means that the main intention of everything you do is to build up people's relationships with Jesus Christ. (The word "Trinitarian" is not a denominational label. It simply shows a belief in the Trinity, which is what distinguishes Christianity from cults.)
These listings help you to network with others who share this commitment to building people's healthy relationships with Jesus as the number one criterion by which they make all of their decisions. Because this single factor is the key to authentic life and ministry, we are here to help you connect with others who take this seriously.
If you want to find a partner for prayer and accountability, you can read the TFI profiles of available prayer partners before reaching out to them. We will help you to create an inviting TFI profile so that others will understand your ministry focus, whether it be your own children, volunteer work in your church, and/or organizational leadership in business or ministry.
In the upper two price tiers, you will see profiles of the businesses and ministries that have declared TFI. That means that they want their service to build Christian integrity. Knowing that you are allowed to hold them publicly accountable for this gives you a platform for developing trust and teamwork with them. You will also be able to create a TFI profile for your own business or ministry so that others can find you when they're searching for reliable Christian services.
Being listed with us will help you to connect with other Christians with whom you can build trust. As you reach out and expand your private network, others will soon be praying for you, interested in what you're doing, and ready to have your back.
We offer multiple levels of privacy from which to choose. You will always have full control over how and with whom you share your personal information.
