You Can Get Unstuck
with a

Grow a Healthy Church Consult

Are You Stuck?

I know what’s it like to lead a growing church.

It’s exhilarating.

People getting saved and baptised. Small Groups growing. Finances flowing in.

And then something happens.

Growth stalls.

Barriers emerge.

The flow vanishes.

We don’t see the same results coming from the same effort.

We grow tired, get a bit disheartened.

Answers elude us.

What got us here doesn’t look like it’s going to get us to next stage.

Then one day it hits us. I am stuck and I don’t know how to get unstuck. 

Our frustration deepens and we start to wonder if we are the right person to be leading our church into its future.

We casually start to look around for other opportunities. We contemplate giving up, moving on.

Even becoming a gardener begins to look attractive.

I know these feelings oh so well.

During my 30 years of pastoring Perth Australia I had seasons of struggling with these feelings and yes, I even dreamed of becoming a gardener.

Eventually I reached out, got some help and got unstuck.

Today I help pastors look at their church with a fresh set of eyes.

I help them get unstuck.

Let me help you get unstuck.

Four mistakes
church leaders make

MISTAKE 1 - Flying solo

In today’s complex world every pastor needs an experienced coach to help them navigate current leadership challenges

MISTAKE # 2 Pastoring like it is the 20th century

Pastoring has dramatically changed this century and a new day demands a new approach

MISTAKE # 3 Focus on growth not health

Pastors focussed on church growth end up frustrated and confused by the lack of results

MISTAKE # 4 Lack of fresh eyes

Every church gets healthier when fresh eyes look at current programs and routines

SAY ABOUT JOHN

Access my 30 years of pastoral leadership experience

I pastored for 30 years at our church, C3 Church Hepburn Heights and led our church through generational renewal.

We saw our church grow while planting a new church every 3 years and also built a new, multi-million dollar worship centre.

In 2012 I founded Grow a Healthy Church and have conducted over 130 on-site, church consults in 5 nations.

Through Christ’s grace, I have helped churches improve their health, grow numerically, increase their volunteer numbers, develop stronger connections with visitors, raise more money and build leadership pipelines.

I have been married for 41 years and have a wonderful family with 2 married children and 4 ‘perfect’ grandsons.
