Lift Churches masterclass



We help pastors reach more people, get more guests, build their team, increase their capacity, and see their church grow.  We do this by helping you:

  • Understand why you are getting your current results

  • Clarify your calling

  • Unify your leadership around fresh vision

  • Build a strategic plan to greater health and growth

  • Rally your congregation towards change


We help small and medium size churches implement a plan to either establish or reframe the 4 drivers needed for their church to thrive and increase its impact on the community it is called to serve. You may have these 4 but the question is how clear, healthy, unified and reliable are they:

  • Vision

  • Culture

  • Teams

  • Systems

When we focus on making sure these 4 areas are operating succinctly and at an optimal level it will lead to both numerical and spiritual growth of your congregation. 

If you’d like to break stagnation, get a steady flow of guests, and see your church grow, my new coaching program, “Lift Churches,” can show you how. 

Did you know that 85% of North American churches are stagnate or in decline?  Lift Leader is a community for pastors and church leaders that have decided that they don’t want to be part of that number.

Discover the barriers. Build a strategy to break through.

In 2004 I started my first church with no systems or processes, just a vision from God.  I mean, that was all I needed.  So, I thought.  During the first few years, I struggled long and hard, with very little growth and minimal impact.   I thought to myself; it must be more.  In about 2007, I happened upon a church planting organization called the Association of Related Churches (ARC) that opened my eyes to why we were stuck. I followed their advice, and in no time, the church went from about 35 to 150.  I was excited and hopeful.  But we plateaued again.  I realized we had more significant problems that would require an even much more aggressive approach to fix the culture and the systems problems that lead us to where we were. After prayer, counsel from several trusted voices, and clear direction from God, I closed the doors with plans to plant a church a year later from the ground up.  With the tools and experience I learned through my church planting experience with the Association of Related Churches, I am happy to say that the new church plant launched in Savannah, GA, in 2014 is alive and well.  I have not only grown our current church to over 500 in regular attendance, but I have also had the privilege of coaching and helping another pastor’s plant healthy life-giving churches over the past few years.  I’ve learned a lot about what it takes to reach people and grow.  We’ve grown from a launch team of 35 on day one to over 500 in the past seven years, and two of those years were during a global pandemic (COVID).

Whether the church has plateaued or is multiplying, every church is a few strategic steps away from reaching the next level. I have partnered with churches of all sizes and shapes and in different growing seasons, and I have never found a church that couldn’t experience even healthier and more sustained growth. Every church faces barriers and complexities that hold them back. Lift Churches exist to identify those and give you the tools to overcome those obstacles and get to the next level.

Our passion is to walk alongside pastors and churches by giving them strategic systems and operational solutions that work. Instead of speaking in theories and ideas, we will drill down into the nuts and bolts of ministry and give you the practical steps to help you succeed.

I wholeheartedly believe in the value of the local church, and I believe that it is God’s will that His church grows and that his local houses be full.  

Lift Churches was a God idea that came to me.  I planned to build on God’s idea and years later use it as a tool to coach churches once our church broke 1000 in regular attendance.  I felt I had to wait until we became this massive organization for anyone to want to hear from me.  But you know what?  It was at that moment, God had me pause and think about the dozens of pastors and hundreds of leaders I have inspired, influenced, and impacted over the years.  The Holy Spirit was clear in that I needed to share and provide guidance now.   It was clear that part of my assignment in ministry, based on what I had already achieved was something anyone can do and easily aspire to.  We are not too big and not too small. Close enough for them to achieve the same results in no time with the proper guidance. 

There are thousands of lost and broken souls in your city who need the saving power of Jesus Christ.  It is time for your church to go and lift them from a place of despair to a place of hope.  It’s time to join the Lift Churches Coaching Program for pastors and church leaders.
