Whether your church is mega, mini or multi, denom or nondenon, mainline, oldline, sideline or offline, you need this book to keep from flatlining. The future belongs to those with the best algorithms, and Easum and Tenny-Brittian probe the algorithms of the Spirit which are not addition or division but multiplication and incarnation.

Here’s how we grow churches . . .

Sometimes you need fresh, well-experienced eyes to separate the good opportunities from the best opportunities. Sometimes you need someone from the “outside” to say what you can’t. Sometimes you feel like you’re up against it and don’t know where to turn.

These are the times you need a consultant to come along side you to help you uncover the path to mission success.

How do the best, the brightest, and most effective leaders spell success? C-O-A-C-H. A coach’s job is to help you reach your personal potential so that those you lead can reach theirs. The best coaches do more than encourage you, they have the training, experience, and creativity to inspire you to be your best self.

Coaching makes change possible even in impossible circumstances.

It takes more than book smarts to navigate the ever changing world of “church” today. The Nones are the fastest growing “religious” segment in the US. And those raised in church are leaving faster than we can replace them. It’s never been easy to grow a church, but it’s more difficult now than in anytime in history.

The solution begins with solid training.

For over thirty years, The Effective Church Group has been creating resources to help churches, leaders, and pastors be as effective as possible. And for over thirty years, we’ve been making the majority of those resources available for free. It’s not that we don’t need the money, but we believe the church is the most important work on this planet.

Take a look … help yourself.

Your Partner In Ministry

Reaching your mission is the difference between success or failure, growth or decline. For over three decades the Effective Church Group has been helping thousands of church leaders and over 1000 churches find effective and faithful ways to reach their mission. With that experience, there’s virtually no problems we haven’t encountered and found ways to guide churches into mission critical success.

Whatever you’re facing – staff changes, space restrictions, attendance decline, aging members, conflict, outreach issues, time management, low church esteem – we’ve been there and done that. We’ll be there for you, too.

Our History

The Effective Church Group has been working with churches in the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand for over three decades. Founded by Bill Easum in the 1980s, the Group has expanded with noted experts with hands-on experience in growing churches and coaching leaders to reach their potential. We’ve worked with churches from over 60 denominations including Non-Denominationals, Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians, Disciples, Lutherans, American Baptist, Episcopalian, Seventh-day Adventists, and many more.
