Thank you for your interest in RealityCheck. On these pages we would like to introduce the course to you in more detail. We would like to show you three possibilities, how you can carry out the course personally.

You will also find an overview of how we can make the course materials available to you and which formats we are planning in the future. You can also always find news in our news section.

Who is this course for?

For Christians who want to see that the Bible is relevant in their daily lives and globally. The course consists of 12 units with several practical units and is designed for small groups. But you can also do the course alone or in pairs.

Sounds interesting. How can I participate?

Current dates and venues are announced here on our homepage in the news section and can also be found on our Facebook page.

Participation is always free of charge. We are looking forward to getting to know you!

What is important for every Christian?

Growth and development.

For this is God’s plan for our lives – our development in all important areas: physical and emotional, social and spiritual. Because that simply does us and the people around us good.

Why is it important that we grow the way God wants us to?

There are many challenges in our world

  • penuriousness
  • solitariness
  • hatred
  • hunger
  • corruption
  • war
  • human trafficking
  • harassment
  • pollution of the environment
  • injustice

The solution?

The local church:

God's chosen tool to bring healing in all areas of life

Colossians 1:15–19


We often suffer from false (theological) worldviews.
These prevent us from living God's message in a way that positively changes our society.

What role do my world view / thought patterns play?

Our world view becomes visible in our everyday actions, in our laws and in our systems. What applies to the individual also applies globally. Our thoughts paint our world.

Even when we come to believe in Christ, these worldviews often still work unnoticed by us.

Important question then:

What are these assumptions/thinking patterns/belief bases and how did they find their way into our system of thinking and values (basis of our actions and judgements)?

And even more important:

How does God see us in our world, the challenges and the answers?

Currently we can offer you the course materials in printed and digital form. We offer our printed softcover book at the cost price of the print production plus postage. There are no costs for the course itself or for downloading the digital course materials as PDF files.

The American Coram Deo course, on which the German course is based, is available in the form of online videos. Our goal is to be able to offer you the German course in this form as well. First plans and discussions in this direction have already taken place. We will keep you up to date. We have also considered the production of audio files in the form of podcasts or audio books. We look forward to your feedback and opinion. Please use our contact form or send us an email.

How can you do RealityCheck...?

We would like to give you some tips on how to do the RealityCheck course.

One way you can do the RealityCheck is by self-study. Here you are completely free in which form and when you conduct the course. Our manuscript is self-explanatory and can be edited e.g. in the quiet time in the morning. Additional questions and other practical tasks are included in the manuscript.

The RealityCheck can also be performed in small groups. The manuscripts are suitable for a common exchange, which can be very profitable due to the different experiences and experiences of the course participants.

Again and again we offer local study groups. Currently our meetings take place in Cologne. We are very interested in establishing a network in the German-speaking area (D/A/CH) so that as many study groups as possible can be offered.

If you are interested in offering a local study group, please contact us via our contact form.

The content of the study groups is based on the course materials listed above, which will be worked on together. In addition, there will be room for exchange, joint meals and further film evenings. If you have any questions or would like to register, please use our contact form.
