Tools Designed to Build Your Church

We are asked every week, "What are the best tools and resources for improving and strengthening my church?"
So we put this list together.

Church Hospitality

Did you know that poor hospitality is the number one reason first-time visitors don't return? Yet most churches don’t have a clear action plan to fix this plaguing issue. In fact, the average return rate for first-time visitors in the US hovers around 15%, and often even less. Church Hospitality was created specifically to raise your church's hospitality quotient.

Discover how to make first-impressions that get visitors coming back, how to help your visitors connect with your congregation, and how to avoid the 7 Deadly Church Hospitality Sins.

Church Growth Tools

Is your church not growing like it "should?" After over two decades of consulting and coaching thousands of churches and church leaders, publishing over 30 books, speaking at hundreds of church growth conferences, and producing literally countless videos, workbooks, and church training curriculum being used across the world (and mostly free!), we have dialed in on some Core Practices we know grow churches.

Church Growth Tools is a comprehensive solution designed specifically for those looking for nuggets of Church Growth Gold.
