We Know There Are Many Options Out There. This Is What We’ve Learned Makes Us Different…
When you realize your church is stuck and you’re exploring the options for addressing the challenges you’re facing, it can be overwhelming to make a decision.
A few decades ago, your best bet was probably to read some books, attend a conference, or ask another ministry leader to coach you.
Today there are numerous online courses, coaching networks and mission-minded companies that can partner with you to to help you get your church unstuck.
Why might you want to choose us?
After 10 years of serving churches and hearing their feedback, here are some of the things we’ve learned makes us unique:
We have a bias for action.
We know that “stuck” is a hopeless feeling. Everything about our Unstuck Process is designed to help you move from where you are to where God wants you to be. We assist you in developing a regular 90-Day Action Plan rhythm, so that you begin creating greater accountability for follow-through. This helps you teach your team how to execute on quarterly cycles.
Here’s a brief video explaining it—
You get wisdom from a team.
In most cases, you will have direct interaction with 2-3 Unstuck consultants, and in all cases, you will have our whole team—strategic thinkers, metrics nerds, leadership enthusiasts, staffing extraordinaires—working behind the scenes to enhance your experience.
We don’t tell you who to be or what to do.
We help you clarify where God’s called you to go and how you are going to get there. Our “consultants” are really “facilitators.” They will lead you in the right conversations to help your team rally together around the vision and actions needed to get your church unstuck.
Our Unstuck Process helps you clarify vision and determine the right structure and staff roles for your church.
The Staffing & Structure Review portion of our process helps you get the right people in the right roles. It’s not enough to just define your vision and strategies. Without the right people in place, everything stalls out. To our knowledge, we’re the only organization that guides you through the process of connecting strategy to staffing and structure.
Many of us are still on staff full-time at local churches.
We didn’t burn out on local church ministry and decide to get into consulting. We are in touch with what pastors are going through on a daily basis. Clients often comment that our team is full of “normal people.” We like to take that as a good thing.
We stay focused on what we do best.
Our core processes (Unstuck Church, Unstuck Teams, Multisite, and Mergers) are our top priority. We do not exert energy in areas better served by others. If you need help with communications, resourcing, branding, or bookkeeping, for example, we have like-minded partners we will connect you with.
We are with you for the long-haul.
The Action Phase of our process is designed with checkpoints that help us help you keep making progress. Strategic plans are fluid. They need to be revisited and updated on an ongoing basis. We build relationships with the churches we serve, and we will continue to be there for you as you lead change into the future.
We think you’ll find us to be one of the cheapest yet most experienced and strategic members of your team.
