Do you want your church to grow?

We will give you practical ideas, tools, and templates to help you lead a healthy and growing church.

How do you get people to come to church, volunteer, and give?

A letter from our founder

Most of the people in your church won’t understand this, but leading a church is really hard.

Much of what you do depends on volunteers and busy people. Every leader reading this has gotten the 8AM text message from the volunteer who had “something come up” and an email from a key leader who “just needs to take a little break.”

And, of course, the ministry is funded with donations. The average Christian gives just 2.5% of their income to charity, and your church is competing with the Salvation Army and the Humane Society. To top it all off, most people feel like giving their time is good enough, keeping their money in the bank in order to cover their credit card bills.

Then there’s the issue of actually reaching your community. If the church service is just a collection of saints who care more about being comfortable and don’t really invite their unchurched friends, neighbors, and co-workers, are you really going to make a difference?

How can you encourage people to give, serve, invite…to care? It’s not that you aren’t called and committed to the mission of the local church. And it’s not like you’re a dummy. Most of the pastors and leaders we work with are educated, articulate and good leaders. It’s that there’s a lot to lead, a lot at stake and a lot that needs your focus. And while the Holy Spirit is everywhere, you can’t be. Deep down, you know the mission of the church matters and your church should be growing faster than it is. You believe people should be more engaged.

If we were to spend some time over coffee, here’s what I would challenge you to do.

1. Clarify what really matters. Of all the things you could do, I’d press you to get everything boiled down to just one page. Think of it like a one-page business plan for your church.

2. Build leaders, volunteers and donors who are excited about the mission. Plans without people don’t really matter, do they.

3. Make plans that get the right things done and leave you time to be a spouse, parent, friend and all-around good human. Passion and vision isn’t enough, you need a strategic growth plan.

4. Align your team and your ministries, deciding which to leverage, which to leave, and which to let go. All your people on all your problems isn’t going to work anymore…it’s time to focus.

5. Implement systems and strategies, making sure the right things are done in the right ways. 9 out of 10 churches don’t have the systems inplace to grow, but the good news is this problem can be fixed.

You probably agree with all of this, but you’re worried it’s going to take a lot of time. The good news is you don’t need to do it all now, you just need to take that first step.

Want to see how it works?

Church Fuel has helped me as a pastor and aligned our church vision with our church ministries. By following the action plan and tweaking it to fit our church dynamic, attendance has increased, finances have increased, and we have retained our new members. I have not witnessed anything like this because they have a hands-on approach. We don’t just a dollar figure or a number. I’m proud to be a member of Church Fuel One.

I’m the pastor of a one year old church plant in Nashville. Thank you for what you do. Many of your resources have been helpful to us. We are averaging between 500-600 in attendance per week, so being able to build systems quickly utilizing your tools has been a lifesaver for us on more than one occasion!

Travis Garner, Pastor


You’ll get a new 12-minute master class each month, focused on practical church growth strategies. We’ll give you ONE thing you and your team can do that month to lead the church to healthy growth.


In addition to practical coaching, we’ll give you the document, resource or template you need to take action. There are more than 80 of these resources available to you, with more being added each month.



We know you can’t take too many Sundays to visit other churches, so we do it for you and report back on what we learn. We unpack the one thing these churches do better than the other 99%.



Face it, aren’t we all better at solving other people’s problems? Join  pastors and leaders just like you and tap in to their wisdom.


For the times when you need to hop on the phone or start a Skype call with a real person, we’ve got open office hours. We’re here to help.


Pastoral Leadership Development

If you have a budget for leadership development and spend it on conferences that confuse you or books that sit on the shelf, there's a better way.

Staff Meeting Training

Our short training videos are perfect to watch in your staff meeting and discuss with your team. Or share with your staff and have them watch and implement on their own. If you're looking for a practical way to do leadership development, this is a practical solution.

Improvement Projects

Some churches take our training and work together for a few months on a specific area of the church. Whether it's a retreat or a project, you'll find the kind of resources needed to move you forward.


Every coaching video comes with documents, templates and action guides to help you use this resource in your church. Not only will you know what to do and why to do it, we’ll give you the resources and the examples.


Never start with a blank page again.

There are more than 80 documents, templates and examples available to you in our Resource Library. You’ll have instant access to them the moment you sign up, and we’ll continue to add new ones each month.

If you need something you don’t see in the library, just ask and we’ll find it or make it for you. Think of us like your outsourced document creation team.



Personal 15-Minute Skype Calls

When you join, you’ll get a complimentary Skype call with the Church Fuel team to help you work through an immediate issue. So if you’re struggling with something specific, we’ll help you!

Monthly Masterminds

Every month, our members gather online to share ideas, encourage one another and talk about best practices. Get ready to rub elbows with other leaders just like you and grow as a direct result.



When you think about all the video training, documents, resources, and one-on-one access, you might expect to pay HUNDREDS of dollars each month. BUT, we want every church interested in growth to be able to have access to these world-class resources. That’s why we’ve priced these resources so every church can participate.

There are two ways to pay.

Easy on the Budget

Church Fuel is helping me focus and providing incredible tools for our team to use. Spending my own personal money on this each month is well worth it.
