INQUIRE ABOUT CONSULTING
Churches are different, and a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t get you “where you want to be”. Consulting will give you an instant insight on areas you need to address, and practical solutions to move forward.
Consultation with me prepares you to grow your church, strengthen your team and congregation, confidently articulate your church mission and vision, create the best fit in terms of culture and structure, and design the strategic steps essential to experience the fullness of your church calling.
CHURCH CONSULTING INQUIRY FORM
To find out more about church consulting, please take two minutes to fill out this form. I will contact you to make sure consultation is the right fit for your goals.
What does the consultancy process look like, practically?
Together, we will consider what areas of church health to focus on. Typically we will begin with using one of my online assessment tools, which will involve surveying key leaders you identify. As this assessment clarifies the church health, I will share observations and make recommendations for specific strategic steps to take to address anything that arises. This process can be conducted via phone, video-call or site visits at your church.
As a consultant, what do you bring to the process?
I know the church world; I have been in a variety of ministry leadership roles – paid and unpaid – in small, medium, large and megachurch settings for over twenty years and have experienced success in ministry. I have overseen churches and church leadership teams and spoken into situations when churches have been in every stage of health, whether they were just starting, growing, plateauing, planting, running multi-site, stagnating, transitioning, or rebooting. My background in business brings focus and clarity to many organisational aspects and due to my studies and experience teaching theologically and practically, you won’t only get theory from me. Everything will be biblical, spiritual and practical.
Where should our church expect to end up?
Transformed. I expect you to have greater focus and momentum, and clear ideas, new energy and deeper understanding of all you need to do to see success.
