We’ll perform a comprehensive analysis of your ministry — from the parking lot to the back office — and offer practical solutions tailored to your situation. We’ll even guide you through the implementation process so you can focus on what you love: growth — of your church, your staff, and your people.
We come on-site and do a complete weekend evaluation – inside and outside the auditorium – and identify practical solutions for you to grow your church and then walk alongside you as you implement those solutions.
We provide group training and one on one coaching for your team on topics such as volunteer development, strategic planning, problem solving, and personal development.
We provide direction in the areas of social media marketing, branding, and overall internal and external marketing strategy.
While other areas are focused on growth, we provide ideas and solutions in this area to streamline and free up resources to be used in other areas of ministry. These may come in the form of systems development or financial savings.
We provide varying levels of Executive Pastor services at a fraction of what it would cost for you to employ someone with the same level of experience and expertise. Some of these areas include – helping with strategic planning and logistical implementation of God’s vision for your church, coaching staff members, financial and metrics analysis as well as access to all other products in our “Growth Solutions” area.
