YOUR FIRST STEP
Your first step in Foundations Stages 1-2 is to get familiar with this incredible Warrior Tribe and all the resources at hand. This will be an introduction to The Warrior Commission and will equip you for all that is ahead. In fact, we had help from new members (at the time) to design it.
TWC IS A PROCESS AND A COMMUNITY, NOT A STUDY COURSE.
We are learning what it is to be commissioned as Warriors who further God’s Kingdom. Our first and most important commission is the intimate connection we have with God. Without deep relationship with Him, all other commissions we carry will pale in comparison to what is possible. Foundations focuses on an integrated, multi-faceted process of training to expand your relationship with all God is. Foundations Stages 1-2 help you get a taste of TWC and introduce you to some basic, yet powerful, tools for your journey.
We value your powerful choices for how you pace through the training and what you participate in along the way. You will have many options in TWC in how you train, how much you train and what your focus is. Becoming a TWC Warrior takes some adjustment. We know TWC is like nothing most people have experienced before…just remember, we delight in the learning and celebrate your journey!
The process of developing your TWC, and personal Foundations, starts now!
STAGE 1 AND 2 OF FOUNDATIONS
Foundations, Stage 1-2 give you a chance to adjust to this new altitude and equip you with basic tools you will use throughout your Warrior Commission experience. Generally speaking, many of the additional materials you purchase here are used in other ways and in other trainings in TWC. You are building your library of resources to have at hand. These resources can be found at the TWC Market; this link will take you there.
Please feel free to ask questions, as there will be many along the way. We love questions!
You should have received a Warrior Guidebook with your Stage 1 training. Refer to it for an overview of all the resources and support we offer you in TWC. It may also answer some of your basic questions and is a great go to resource. We do update it several times a year. For your convenience, you can find the most updated copy here on the website under the FOUNDATIONS/Warrior Helps Tab or click the link above.
WHAT TO DO FIRST?
Soak it all in!
These first few months allow you to catch your breath and get a sense of who The Warrior Commission is… and who you might be in it. Check out Overcoming Mindsets in the TWC KINGDOM CULTURE/Training Support tab. It has some of the most common OMGosh moments that new members encounter. What now?
- Have fun with your exploration.
- Go ahead and order the supplemental materials so you have them ready when you are.
- Begin MONTH 1 of Foundations, Stage 1.
- We hope you will get something amazing in the first introduction to our Insteads Tool and Impact Prayer.
- Enjoy looking around our Member Website – Especially check out the archives of our Frontline publications. You can use this Frontline link or go to the MEDIA tab.
- Explore the TWC Forum on the Website. You will find the orange link to the Forum on the top left of the main screen (above) or go directly to Warrior Chat – found on that bar, too. You’re free to jump in the conversation as soon as you join. Exploring is the best way to experience the Forum. There are videos to help you navigate – as can be seen on the first page that opens from your Forum link (your account profile). The Forum is a closed area, where only members have access for dialogue on TWC topics. Check out basic information on the TWC Forum by clicking here.
- Review the Primary Passions and Options in TWC under the TWC KINGDOM CULTURE Tab.
You received your Foundations Training, Stage 1 when you joined. If you need a new copy, contact our Operations Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org. When completed, go to the Next Step below.
4 NEW MEMBER FOCUSED CALLS MONTHY
- The first Saturday or Tuesday of the Month, Foundations – Who We Are is held. This is an an Introduction to TWC call and is often joined by more seasoned Warriors as a refresher.
- The second Saturday the Kingdom Mindsets call is held.
- The third Monday of the month is the New Member CoNexus Hub call.
- The fourth Week of the month you will find the Stage 2 calls that rotate out every other month: Intercession: Elephants and Archers
These calls are designed for you to have a place to connect with other New Warriors and seasoned Warriors who join the calls. We designed them to help you learn about TWC culture, and possibilities, from experienced coaches and leaders within TWC. Foundations Stages 3-6 will deep dive into your relationship with God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and identity.
Information about Warrior Calls can be found on the Forum under the Events tab. Recorded calls can be found under the Call Library tab. You will receive an email invitation with the call link information for the New Member CoNexus hub,
Once you have completed your training module and attended the Foundations – Who We Are call for Foundations Stage 1, month 1, then the Kingdom Mindsets Call for month 2, you will create a document based on the What to Submit section of the Response Journal. Now you are ready to submit your first training in TWC!!!
Once you receive feedback, you are ready for Stage 2 and can ask for that next training module from email@example.com. This process continues through Stage 2-6 as well – each Foundations training module you explore. Simply, complete the Response Journal for that training and send it in to the coaches. In addition, you can attend any Warrior Calls that are helpful, or you feel God puts on your radar.
For each self-paced training, you will submit the stage/module of training, then wait for a response from your coaches. You can send it in to your coaches at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put New Member Submission Stage __ in the subject line. Once you receive a response (no more than two weeks), you can then contact Member Services at email@example.com to request the next stage in your Foundations Journey. We have 6 stages. Once Foundations 1-6 is complete go to Empowering Kingdom Influence to explore your next training options.
WHEN DO I REQUEST THE NEXT STAGE OF TRAINING?
You are welcome to request the next training stage as soon as you get the feedback from your coaches. However, we want to suggest that you do have the freedom to spend some time between the stages. As this is a self-paced training, there are some things you may want to explore. This is a great conversation to have with the Lord. You will want to continue to pray your Impact Prayer during this time. This has been a lot to process, so remember to take a moment to enjoy, look out at the landscape from this mountain you are climbing and breathe!
Before you move on, remember to update your Warrior Notebook. Check out the Warrior Notebook tab under TRAINING/Warrior Helps or click the link to find this value information on organizing your training, and documenting God’s amazing presence with you on your journey.
IN YOUR HANDS
We place the responsibility for initiating contact in your hands. It’s part of our Warrior mindset to give you the opportunity to self-pace, honor your level of connection needed and the space you may need to process with the Lord. In other words, we don’t chase you down and make sure you are doing it! You know if God is saying, “Go!” or asking you to push the pause button for a minute.
Each Warrior is unique and is in a different place for how quickly you make the climb. We are not concerned with the speed. It’s not usually wise to race up a mountain! 😉 We value quality of your journey and what God is showing you through it.
WAYS TO CONNECT THROUGHOUT YOUR FOUNDATIONS STAGES 1-2 TRAINING
Although we ask that you make your Foundations Stages 1 and 2 calls a priority, you are welcome to join any other training or engagement calls.
- Join a TWC Training Call or Engagement Call especially those that focus on Foundations Training modules or say All Warriors.
- Make a TWC related post in our TWC Forum Warrior Chat group. Click on this link for the Forum Guidelines.

NEW MEMBER FAQS
Here are the most common questions new members have. We expect you to have questions and we welcome them!
Who is my primary contact person/people?
Your primary contacts for your Foundations, Stage 1 and 2 training, and all general TWC questions, are your coaches at firstname.lastname@example.org. We have coaches who love to help our newer members get connected and settled into this amazing tribe of Warriors. They are here to give feedback, encourage and help bring clarity to TWC Community.
Can I really ask questions?
We LOVE question askers. It means you are thinking, learning and growing! Please feel free to ask questions, as there will be many along the way. Put “New Member Question” in the subject line. If, for some reason, you need additional help, you are welcome to contact email@example.com.
We enjoy running counter to many practices we typically experienced in our journeys — including the “shut down” people often experience when they ask questions. We embrace the question askers and are always learning how to ask better ones ourselves. Questions are not viewed as a challenge to authority. They are seen as your exploration and attempt to wrap your head around the revelation God is releasing. In addition, for many, we are a completely new Kingdom culture for you to experience in TWC. So, consider this your permission granted to ask!
There’s a lot here. What do I do first?
Check out the “What to do First” section at the top of this page for more information. And remember, for many of us, TWC is a life-long connection of growth, learning, celebration, and journey with an amazing Tribe of Kingdom Warriors. So, take it one bite at a time. Let Holy Spirit guide you on what is next or what to focus on now.
How much time should I be praying? What should my prayer time look like?
Whatever flows with what God is doing on that day. Time is not as important as our approach to prayer. We know God delights to hear us. He is always with us. We love His presence, whether tangibly felt, or in the joy of trusting He is here. We value listening, or sensing, what God is saying and then praying that all throughout the day. Prayer can happen in a few minutes or over several hours. Really, praying without ceasing is an ongoing conversation with God. Encountering Him consistently in prayer is the lifestyle we desire.
How would you describe the culture of The Warrior Commission?
Read The Decisions That Define Us on a regular basis. These, along with our Values, describe who we are and are becoming individually and corporately. As we encounter these individually, our corporate strength grows. You may access these through the previous link or under the TWC- Who We Are tab under TWC KINGDOM CULTURE
Where should I send my personal prayer needs?
To your personal intercessors! We encourage every TWC member to have people who pray for them on a regular basis. You just signed on to “live in the clash between two Kingdoms.” You need your own prayer coverage.
We want to build relationships within TWC; however, we ask that you do not use TWC Forum or our Training/Engagement Calls as your personal prayer team for family, national or social intercession requests. We have a specialized focus and we need to be faithful to that. DO let your Training Coaches know about significant events in your life (moving, passing of a loved one, health, etc.). We want to be a part of your journey and story.
It seems like TWC has a lot of words/phrases I have never heard before. How can I understand what they mean?
You are right. We have our own language that has developed over the years ad God has expanded our Kingdom culture. These words have developed over the years based on proleptic words, training, images we have shared and experiences we have explored. Follow this link to the Quick Guide to TWC Terms under the TWC KINGDOM CULTURE tab. Also, you may ask when on a call. We love to help you know what we are talking about and want to make sure you are up and running as fast as possible. Give yourself a lot of grace. We don’t expect you to absorb it all at once; much of it comes along the way and deepens with each step of your journey with us.
Where do I find the Kingdom Mindsets Activation Videos for Foundations, Stage 1 Month 2?
The links to the Introduction Video and the Activation Video are in the Foundations, Stage 1 Response Journal. They can be copied and pasted into an internet search bar to reach them in YouTube. Or, you can use the links we have here: Kingdom Mindsets Activation Introduction and Kingdom Mindsets Activation
