  • Is the "sign in" info the same as my TWOTP account?

    No, this is a new account with the e-course platform Thinkific, so you'll need to sign up and in with new account info. NOTE: In the near future, the Thinkific e-courses will be integrated into the TWOTP site, so at the point, you will sign in directly to TWOTP to access e-courses.

  • What if I lose my faith and/or hate the course or teacher?

    You can get your money back, just email us at info@theworkofthepeople.com.

  • What if we don't think you are the devil for charging money for the course, but just aren't in a position to pay a portion or even the entire cost or the course?

    Just email us at info@theworkofthepeople.com and we'll figure something out. We aren't trying to be "successful" we are just trying to grow - as in nurture Life and co-create with God :)
