Helping people create spaces of discovery
and communities of transformation

Thresholds is a community of spiritual leaders and coaches who help people unearth their deep longings and help guide them as they discover new ways of living fully and embodying the Spirit of Christ right where they have been placed.

Before creating Thresholds in 2013, Rob Yackley was the co-founder and lead architect of NieuCommunities, a collective of mentoring communities sprinkled around the world that shaped people to inhabit the places they live and to lead in the way of Jesus. Their story is told in the book Thin Places and much of their ethos still breathes through Thresholds.

The Thresholds staff are all player-coaches. Our coaching and training has been shaped by decades of on-the-ground experience and by accompanying leaders in diverse settings across the world. We have walked untried paths and walked with thousands as they stepped into the unknown wilderness. We have created communities, we have led them, and we’ve been personally transformed through them. Each of us has stepped across a threshold into a new way of living our faith and we’ve given our lives to help others step beyond the confines of what they have known and into the divine movement of God.
