Leading a church in an ever-changing culture is a unique and challenging responsibility.  Could your church use a little help?

Dr. Chuck Lawless, a professor of evangelism at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, says a healthy church is “one that balances worship, evangelism, discipleship, ministry, and fellowship.”  Other church leaders have noted that the key issue for churches in the 21st century will be church health, not church growth. Our goal is to become the most valuable resource in helping congregations become the church God had in mind. Our three-fold strategy is:

  • Consultations that offer customized solutions to the complexities of church life and ministry.
  • Conferences that inspire, inform, and equip leaders toward effectiveness.
  • Continuing Education that helps church leaders stay on the cutting edge of ministry concerns, changes, and performance.

Healthy Church Solutions are responses to needs we are discovering in churches.  While every church is unique, there are often some similar needs.  Below are a few of the solutions our consultants have formulated.
