Our Mission is to provide affordable services to churches in non-profit organizations to help them to have the greatest possible impact on their community and the world. Our mission, vision, and work are based out of the scripture Habakkuk 1:5. “Look at the nations and watch—and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told. (TNIV)
Our passion is serving churches and non-profits to help them with their visioning, leadership, structure, and much more. We bring extensive experience to the table and our hope is to help churches and organizations prepare themselves to do and experience amazing things. We will help you discern and answer questions around identity, structure, mission, vision, and leadership. We provide an outside perspective that above all else wants you to succeed and be all that you are called to be. Making a difference in today’s culture is no easy task and we provide you with the framework and the tools to navigate these times of change while honoring your beliefs, history, and identity. Our hope is to provide low cost services, tools, and resources to smaller organizations who may not have all the resources of larger churches and organizations. We value our conversations with you and our prayer is that we may be a partner with you and your church or organization.
