What We Offer

  • Guidance in developing an education ministry strategy that reflects and supports your unique calling, mission, values, and community
  • Coaching as you and your leadership team implement that strategy through launching a new ministry or refining an existing one
  • Guidance in recruiting and training a leadership team so that the weight of the ministry does not land on the shoulders of the senior pastor or elder board
  • Comprehensive training for leaders and teachers
  • Continued support and coaching

We will design an approach that will fit your situation. You may need to create a new ministry or rework an existing one from the ground up. We can do that. Perhaps you have hit a road block with an existing ministry and need some help finding a way around it. We can do that too. Contact us and we will be glad to discuss the options available.

Interim Program Administration

Sometimes an education pastor leaves and a church needs an interim pastor to administrate the education ministry while the search for a new pastor is being carried out. We are in a perfect position to take care of that for you. Please contact us and we can discuss the possiblities.
