Best Practices Coaching
It has been our experience that there are a set of leadership practices for church planters that make all the difference in the world when it comes to planting and developing a healthy, reproducible church. We simply refer to them as our Best Practices. We have helped hundreds, and perhaps by now, thousands of church planters with these practices, and would love to partner with you. We offer three ways that you can get engaged in these practices:

OUR SIX BEST PRACTICES
Each of our coaching environments is designed for the local church and covers all five of our Best Practices. These Best Practices include:
One of the most overlooked areas in a church planter or new church pastor is his own vitality. You have to lead yourself before you can lead others. This practice takes into account the spiritual, physical, emotional, and relational vitality of the leader and his team.
Be Mean About Vision
Don’t be mean, but be mean about the vision. In other words, it is far too common for church planters to give away their vision before they even move out of the core group phase. While many organizations and resources focus on developing a clear vision, we focus on the task of implementing the vision God has given you. It’s one thing to come up with a cool and clear vision statement; it’s another thing to actually execute a vision.
Church planting is a team sport. Often, new church planters lack in experience of leading a team. This practice focuses on how you recruit, develop, and lead a team in such a way to get the result you envision.
Finance the Mission
Avoid church planters bankruptcy. In today’s financial world we can no longer take financing the mission for granted. Learn and develop the skills and tools for creating a culture of generosity within the church. Discover the art and science of raising and managing finances.
Our mission as a church is not up for debate. Jesus was clear in that we are to make disciples. While our vision may be different, our mission is always the same. At the end of the day are we making disciples? This practice will help you develop a growth track, assimilate people, connect them to community, and define what it means to be a disciple in your context.
This practice teaches you how to communicate more effectively within your church, and beyond. Proven techniques and systems are shared during this session.
