  • Are you a lead pastor?

    This course was made for you. It will speak directly to your heart, your needs and your next steps. It will grow your ability to lead an unstuck church—regardless of where your church is today.

  • Are you the executive pastor?

    You’ll gain practical wisdom from this course, but we’d recommend inviting your senior pastor to engage along with you. If the two of you are united and process these principles and next steps together, you will position yourself for even greater success.

  • Are you a lay leader?

    This content will help you understand what it takes for a pastor to lead an unstuck church. You will better understand how to support the lead pastor and live out your calling as a lay leader. We’d encourage you to involve the whole lay leadership team, as well as the senior pastor, and walk through this together for the best outcomes.

  • Do you feel called to pastor someday?

    Are you on your way to becoming the lead pastor through a succession plan, or do you believe God is leading you to plant a church? This content will equip you to start off strong, as well as to anticipate the challenges that will come down the line. You may not be able to complete some of the exercises today, but you will be able to draw on them when the time is right.

Frequently Asked Questions

Nope! While some of the topics may seem familiar, the content and resources are original to this course. If you read the book and identified where your church is in its lifecycle today, you also saw Tony recommended some next steps for you to take. The content in this course dives much deeper into how to take those next steps.

Sure, you’ll get a PDF version of the core content you are welcome to share with other leaders at your church (We do ask that you don’t share it with people outside your team).

Participation in the online portal requires an individual login, so if you want to invite other members of your team to interact in the online community, you may want to consider purchasing additional seats. We do offer group rates. Just email for details.

Yes, if you’d like to register multiple members of your staff team—or if you’re a denominational or church network leader and you’d like to enroll a group of pastors—we have discounts available for registering a group. Email for details.

The concepts will sound familiar, but this is all brand new content that Tony created specifically for the online course. You’ll find this resource will reinforce the things you discussed in the coaching network but will go into a lot more detail in certain areas you didn’t have time to cover in depth in the coaching network.

Tony actually developed this content specifically to address an area where time limits how far you can go in a planning retreat: Helping churches really build out successful action initiatives for the most common “core issues” that were being identified.
You may find that some of the lessons address things you have already worked through in a strategic planning process (like clarifying your mission, vision and values, building a ministry health dashboard), but it will go much more in-depth in helping you take the next steps you identified. It will help you with the “how.”
We are offering a money-back guarantee, so if you get into it and feel like you’re not getting what you need, we’d be happy to refund your payments.

We’ve heard a lot of pastors say they feel stuck. We believe it doesn’t have to be that way.
