Break the 200 barrier.

Breaking 200 is a proven and practical online course to help you lead your church to healthy growth. You'll get world-class coaching and proven resources.

  • Maybe

    You’ve been inspired at church conferences, only to come home and find out that inspiration doesn’t really help you lead a normal sized church.

  • Maybe

    You’ve read great ideas in church leadership books, only to find out that implementing those ideas in your unique context is much harder than you thought.

  • Maybe

    All the books and blog posts you read sound nice, but they don't give you a step-by-step action plan to really change what needs to be changed.

  • The problem is...

    You don’t need more inspiration and you don’t need more ideas. You need a step by step action plan.

  • The Breaking 200 Course is your action plan.

    It's proven training and practical resources to help you and your church break the barrier.

Enroll now and lead your church to break the 200 barrier.

Breaking 200 comes with seven modules of practical coaching, 30+ resources to help you take action, case studies on churches who have been there, and membership in a community who knows what it’s like to lead a church.

A Note from the Instructor

A few years ago, we to Atlanta to start a brand new church. We grew from a core group of 25 people to an opening day with 140. A year later, more than 700 were worshipping in one of three services at a portable location. God blessed the church and we learned so much along the way. We can’t explain it, because God is much bigger than we can possibly imagine.

But we learned how to plan engaging services, follow up with first time guests, raise money to fund ministry, serve the community, and reach people with the Gospel.

Over the last few years, I’ve had the opportunity to work personally with many churches. Pastors often hire me to come assess their services, speak to their leaders, and help them improve their systems. Unfortunately, personalized help is out of the price range for a lot of churches.

That’s one of the reasons we created this course. I sat across the table from a camera and shared everything I’ve learned about church growth – just like you and I were sitting in a coffee shop. Our team pulled together dozens of practical resources and forms – real stuff like we used in our real church.

And along the way, our team and the Church Fuel community will be here to answer your questions and give you the help you need.

Here’s How The Course Works

Breaking 200 is an online course. You will get a practical, step-by-step roadmap and lots of resources to lead your church beyond 200.  All the coaching is delivered on-demand and you can download and share the resources with your entire church.

    There are seven modules and you can work through them one at a time for seven months or pick-and-choose from what is most important to you now.

Read about the impact Church Fuel has had on churches like yours.

  • You just taught me what no Bible school ever did. This is the best value for the money.

    William Areloegbe
  • Our giving is up 40% over this time last year. Our attendance is up more than 50% over this time last year. Our volunteer engagement is much higher in 2015. I have more leaders trained. We are connecting with our community in ways that actually brings them to Church on Sundays. We have more people coming to Christ this year, than in any of our previous 3 years. I feel like I owe a lot of that to the help I received while working with Church Fuel.

    Pastor Todd Tolson, Riverview Community Church
  • Thank you for being a resource hub for so many church leaders. I want you to know that the impact of your ministry is so vast that you wouldn’t be able to appreciate the extent of it—at least on this side of the heaven.
