Q Place has a growing number of resources, events, and people to help you start a Q Place. Here are some of our key supportive resources:

1. How to Start a Q Place guides you through the process of launching and sustaining a small group for spiritual seekers.

2. Q Place coaching groups of 8-10 people meet weekly by video conference call to go through the book How to Start a Q Place with an experienced Q Place facilitator. The regular weekly support, prayer, and learning that occurs in this group is foundational to your ability to start a Q Place. Your only cost is the book How to Start a Q Place; all supplemental resources come through online registration—and it’s free!

3. The 9 Arts of Spiritual Conversations: Q Place equips churches and individual Christians to walk alongside people who believe differently with curriculum called Practicing the 9 Arts of Spiritual Conversations, which is currently available in a short Primer format (with 9 sessions) and will soon be available as a Complete Guide (with 36 sessions). The 9 Arts Primer is a companion to The 9 Arts of Spiritual Conversations book by Mary Schaller and John Crilly, and will help you practice and master skills needed for meaningful spiritual conversations.

Q Place also offers digital license purchase options of the Arts curriculum for individual use and for use in a variety of group sizes. The 9 Arts of Spiritual Conversations includes the Arts of:
