I know what's it like to lead a growing church.
People getting saved and baptised. Small Groups growing. Finances flowing in.
And then something happens.
The flow we had has vanished.
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.
I've been there and yes, I even dreamed of how nice it would be to be a gardener.
Eventually I reached out, got some help and got unstuck.
Today I spend my hours helping pastors look at things with a fresh set of eyes.
I help them get unstuck.
Let me help you get unstuck.

I have 30 years of pastoral experience.
As lead pastor at c3 Church Hepburn Heights I led our church through generational renewal which saw our church grow while planting a new church every 3 years and also move to a purpose-built, multi-million dollar worship centre.
7 years ago I founded Grow a Healthy Church and have conducted over 100 on-site, church consults in 4 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.
