AIA Learning community

a two-year journey of culture change


The AIA Learning Community is a two year discipleship training school (in partnership with 3DM) for eight AIA campus teams from around the nation.


Every six months, the eight teams in the Learning Community gather for a 3-day Onsite Training Event (in Minneapolis) called an Immersion Experience. Immersion Experiences are not simply conferences, but instead are opportunities for the AIA LC teams to gather for ongoing community, teaching and prayer while being offered practical training and coaching. 


Teams learn how to build a discipling culture and catalyze missional momentum in their unique ministry contexts. At the conclusion of each Immersion Experience, teams leave empowered and are sent home with a concrete six-month plan so they can accomplish the things they believe God is calling their team to do.

The Current AIA LC

There is an AIA Learning Community happening now, which started in January 2018 for its First Immersion, and ends in August 2019 with its Fourth Immersion.


Campus Teams in this Learning Community are: Twin Cities, Puerto Rico, 937 (Ohio), Front Range (Colorado), Atlanta, Central Arkansas, Moorhead (MN) and Georgia Southern. 


Interested in being considered for a future AIA Learning Community? We will be launching a second round of the AIA LC in August 2020. Check out this VIDEO and email luke.middendorf@athletesinaction.org for more information.
