Church Fuel One combines online coaching, proven resources, and a community of pastors ready to encourage you. Every month we’ll give you one thing you can do to move your church forward and one resource you can implement to make things better. And our entire community will be here to help you every step of the way. It's a robust resource but priced for a church planter's budget.



You’ll get a new 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 into 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.

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.

High Quality Resources But With Church Planter Pricing

A Word From
Our Founder

Most people don’t understand what you do.

They don’t understand the spiritual weight that comes from starting a church. They don’t know the pressure it puts on your schedule or your family or your personal finances.

We get what you do. We understand you.

As a former church planter, I wanted to give you all of the benefits of our flagship program but at special church plant prices.

These are the tools I wish I had when I was starting a church that had more mission than money. It took me too long to realize I couldn’t preach our way out of every problem and that throwing more vision at an issue wasn’t always the answer. We had to find help with our systems, processes, plans, and strategies.

We built Church Fuel One to help you pastor in the real world. It’s full of practical coaching and resources, stuff born in the trenches of real-church ministry. I’m confident it can help you lead a growing church.

Here's What People Are Saying About Church Fuel One

Church Fuel One Helps Pastors Solves These Three Problems
How Do You Find Time to Improve Yourself AND Develop Your Team?

There are dozens of things you want to fix or change, but it can be overwhelming. Church Fuel One is designed to take ONE hour or less every month. It starts with our master classes and moves forward from there. One thing a month to help you, your staff, and your church.

There's Just So Much To Do

Don't start with a blank page. We have a resource library full of documents, spreadsheets, and templates. Need something and can't find it? We'll make it for you at no extra cost. Spend time on the things that matter and leave the rest to us.

No One Understands All the Demands On Your Shoulders

Most people in your church don't understand the pressure you face. It takes a pastor to understand another pastor. We have a thriving, active community with hundreds of other pastors who "get you" and they're ready to encourage and help you however they can.

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
Want to see how it works?


We love the church, and with some former church planters on our team we know it can be tough to get what you need on a tight budget. So we’ve created special pricing just for church planters. This is on the honor system, but we want to make sure our resources are available to all who need them. One membership provides access to everyone on your team. Regardless of how you choose to pay, you get our 30-day money back guarantee.
