TTB Header_ Overview

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Ties That Bind Group Study Facilitation Center.

The Ties That Bind is a six-part video based curriculum designed to enhance and benefit the participants through the facilitation of the teaching and exercises contained within the training program. As a Ties That Bind facilitator, you are a part of a growing movement of individuals committed to the process of Personal Healing.

Below, please find all the details pertaining to becoming a Ties That Bind Facilitator. While our goal is to make it as simple as possible to enroll a new group, we feel it necessary to provide you with a thorough overview of our expectations, and the support you will receive from our team.

Let’s Begin

Application/Formation Process:

To insure that the program is being properly stewarded and facilitated, it is required that anyone desiring to lead a Ties That Bind Group Study Program complete the following requirements:

  1. Submit application to form/lead group
  2. Participate in a phone interview with Brian Holmes or one of his staff members
  3. Sign the Facilitation and License Agreement

If you have not already done so, you may complete the application by clicking the link below. You will be contacted by one of our staff members to set up your follow-up phone conference.


Registration and Course Materials Policy:

Screen Shot 2015-08-04 at 8.42.22 AMEach new group/facilitator is required to purchase a Ties That Bind Group Study Master Curriculum set. This set include the following:

~ One set of the DVD Course materials
~ 6 Ties That Bind books
~ 6 Ties That Bind Study Guides
~ PDF Master of Student Registration Form

The MASTER CURRICULUM set requires an investment of $395.00, which will be paid upon completion of the application process.

Each participant is required to have his or her own (purchased) copy of both the Ties That Bind book and the Ties That Bind Study Guide. The cost to the facilitator for each set of materials is $35.00. Each participant should be asked to register (and pay) for the group study. The group facilitator is encouraged to charge a registration fee for the course. In order to cover the cost of the materials, the minimum investment for each participant must be $35.00.

If the group/facilitator chooses, they may charge a fee that is more than that which covers the course materials. If this option is exercised, we prefer that it be an amount that is reasonable, and does not discourage people from participating in this life-changing course.

Once enrollment for a group study has closed, the group/facilitator will contact our administrative offices, provide us with registration data, and submit payment for the total number of attendees who have registered. ($35 per person). Upon receipt of payment, we will expedite the shipping of materials for the class. If the facilitator is using any of their materials purchased with their master curriculum kit, they would only submit payment for any new materials ordered. This process will be repeated each time a new class is launched.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Each participant is REQUIRED to have his or her own (purchased) copy of both the Ties That Bind Book and the Ties That Bind Study Guide. Under NO circumstances will the facilitator or group provide photocopies, worksheets, or digital copies of any of the materials. All materials are Copyrighted and protected by Federal Law. No copies may be made of any printed materials (books or study guides), Video/DVD’s, or audio’s without express written permission from Brian Holmes, Brian A. Holmes Ministries, or Strategic Living Institute
