What People Are Saying about Church Fuel
Rob Watts, Pastor
Columbus West Church
If you're on the fence and you're thinking I don't know if this is for me, come join the community. The relationships you'll build with people that are a little bit further ahead from you are so incredible, and the relationships with people that may be a little bit further behind you, because we all know that we learn more from teaching others, often times than we do when we're being taught something. So it's an opportunity for you to both receive and give in this community and it's exciting. Ministry's hard. And doing it alone is even harder. So the Church Fuel community is a big piece of me not feeling all alone in doing ministry. Even though I have a team that I work with here locally, it's great to have other folks and other voices outside of our team locally and that's what Church Fuel is for me.
Jeremy Self, Pastor
The Church at Lake Travis
Church Fuel is an integral part to my personal leadership development, giving me specific items to work through in our staff and church. Our staff team became aligned to the same goals and we worked intentionally through them strengthening our team, culture, and systems. Not only would I say we have a healthier church culture, but I've greater confidence in what I'm doing and know specifically what to work on.
Lawrence Huey, Pastor
Epicentere West Los Angeles
Los Angeles, CA

The Tired Team
Church teams are working harder than ever: leading, pivoting, and trying to keep the church healthy. This toolkit will give you and your team the coaching you need and the resources to make things better.
We built Church Fuel for pastors of normal-sized churches.
We don't use the term “small churches.” Because you're not small, you're normal-sized. You're showing up everyday, working hard to reach people and help them grow in their faith.
You don't have to be a mega-church to make an impact in your community. You need passion and vision and calling, for sure. But you also would benefit from systems, strategy, and practical best-practices.
Church Fuel will bring real-world training and resources to pastors and church leaders just like you. We're not just for you…we're with you.
