Our mission is simple. We help churches get unstuck.

To accomplish that mission, we build our team based on an essential set of core values.

Kingdom Impact

Everything we do is about spreading the Gospel and helping people become disciples of Jesus.
We aim to keep our eyes on eternity, prioritizing life change, not just growth.

Forward Thinking

We are a group of continuous learners who take risks and challenge the status quo.
We believe in the importance of leaving a legacy that paves the way for the next generation. We look ahead and ask “Why not?” rather than “Why?”

Strategic Action

We believe in gathering the facts, planning ahead, and courageously seeing plans through, knowing accountability is essential for progress.
Proverbs 19:2 says “Zeal without knowledge is not good.” We value strategy, which means we are willing to say no to good things to prioritize the great.

Generosity

Our heart is to be good stewards of all God has entrusted to us, both time and resources.
We aim to humbly serve, sacrifice and live for others. We create margin in our lives to be available for the needs of fellow believers and leaders.

A High-Capacity Team

We have a mantra: “The team outperforms the individual every time.” Members of our team have a high capacity for managing their work efficiently and excellently.
We take a strengths-based approach to building our team, hiring self-motivated people committed to personal growth and ongoing development of their skills.

Our Story

For 14 years, Tony Morgan served on the senior leadership teams of Granger Community Church, NewSpring Church and West Ridge Church. In that season, he started writing about leadership at TonyMorganLive.com, while also authoring books and articles featured by the Willow Creek Association, Catalyst and Pastors.com.

His experience and writing often focused on having a clear strategy for ministry, a word few churches were embracing at the time.

In 2008, he started offering leadership coaching networks for pastors. In these coaching relationships, a theme emerged again and again: Pastors felt stuck. Tony began developing a process to help them get unstuck.

It had to start with an honest assessment of where a church was healthy and unhealthy, and that insight led to the creation of our Ministry Health Assessment. From there, Tony was certified in Paterson Center’s StratOp Process, the foundation for the strategic planning process we now use to serve churches. Knowing that to succeed a plan must be supported with the right structure, our Staffing & Structure Review phase was added. 

In 2009, Tony served 10 churches, but more were requesting help getting unstuck than he could serve alone. So, he built a team.

The Unstuck Group has served 200+ churches in the years since, and we continually work to refine and improve our process.

In 2015, we added the Action Phase to help churches build momentum as they execute their plans.
