What We Do
A healthy Family Ministry is as critical to a church as great teaching and worship. We help your Family Ministry team maximize engagement with kids, students, parents, and volunteers.
The weekend worship experience is an essential element of any thriving church. While home-run sermons and top-notch worship are important, many times people who walk through your doors are tuned in or turned off by the details in between. Our team will help take your weekend experience to the next level by evaluating environments, wayfinding, worship experience, and more and then working with you to create a customized development plan.
Healthy churches have healthy leaders, but many senior ministry leaders struggle with loneliness, the weight of leadership, and navigating complex ministry problems. We provide coaching and support to walk alongside of you in order to strengthen and equip you to lead your church and achieve your God-sized vision.
The Church isn’t a building; it’s people living on mission together. But one of the greatest challenges ministry leaders face is moving people from attending on the weekends to meaningful engagement. We leverage years of experience in churches of all sizes to help you build an effective discipleship pathway with the proven systems to support it.
Groups can be the foundation of real life-change, transformation and spiritual growth, but many churches “wing it” when it comes to their groups strategy. We can help you develop your staff to lead a groups department at your church, develop effective systems for raising up group leaders, and create an effective groups strategy based on your unique culture and context.
Going multisite is an exciting and powerful way to multiply your reach. It’s also fraught with minefields that can derail your growth. We help you determine whether multisite is right for you and, if you’re already there, we’ll help you make the most of it.
Multiplication & Growth
Healthy churches grow and multiply at every level of ministry. We help you develop simple, reproducible systems that you need in order to reach more people for Jesus, multiply leaders, grow your church, and create greater impact.
Leadership succession has now become one of the most pressing issues facing today’s church. The process of making a healthy transition into a new ministry season cannot be taken lightly. Furthermore, because every church has unique dynamics and cultures, it is a risky proposition to copy another church’s process. Let us help you design your unique move into the next season of ministry in a way that aligns with your people, your culture and your most effective future.
We are called to be a light to the world, but one of the greatest challenges churches face is the rapidly changing face of missions. We will help you navigate this changing landscape with current research and best practices that help you make a tangible and trustworthy impact in your community while also mobilizing engagement in your congregation.
The life cycle of ministry can come with seasons of dramatic change which has the potential to cripple growth and impact. Our expert team can help you navigate the complex waters of pastoral succession planning, new chapters of ministry, and other new pathways. We help you find the clarity and direction needed for the road ahead.

This Is Not Your Average Coaching
