You need someone to show you the way, someone to help you get started, and someone to keep you from making mistakeS

If your church is stuck, The Systems Course will give you the tools and training you need to lead your church to healthy growth. And if your church is already growing, the fresh ideas and proven strategies you will find here will add fuel to the fire.

I’ve met so many pastors who are great leaders with an incredible vision. My hope and prayer is this course provides some of the practical tools they need to lead their church well. I worked hard to make it practical and I believe this will help you.

A Word From Our Host...
short videos and lots of documents, resources and guides.
The Systems Course Is Divided Into SEVEN Modules

We will help you design and implement a proven system to follow-up with first time guests, invite them back, and connect them to the body of Christ. You can expect to dramatically improve your guest retention rate.


We’ll help you create a plan to recruit and train the volunteers you need to do the ministry you’re called to do. You can expect to double the number of volunteers serving in your church.


“How do we close the back door and keep people from leaving?” That’s the question we’re going to tackle in this module. You’ll put a proven path in place so people get connected in the church.


Preaching life-changing sermons is one of the most important responsibilities on your plate. This module dives deep into the total preaching system, from planning to writing. You’ll have a teaching calendar and a solid weekly rhythm.


Fully funded churches are in a better position to serve their community and reach people with the gospel. We’ll show you how to increase regular giving without crazy fundraisers.


Leadership is a stewardship issue, so you owe it to yourself and to your team to help them lead at the highest level possible. This module will help you align your team around what matters most and get the right people in the right seats on the bus.


In this module, we will help you create a church-wide communication plan. We’ll show you how to communicate to those inside the church and reach out to those in the community with your most important messages.

Healthy systems can help you retain more first time guests
How Much Does It Cost?

Healthy systems can help you retain more first time guests, connect casual attenders into volunteer roles, and move people into generosity. And while we can’t promise these ideas will work in your church, we can say that most pastors report an increase in attendance, small group participation, volunteerism and generosity as a result of going through the course.

The Systems Course is $499 or $99/month for 7 months

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 than it was in 2014. 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. And I feel like I owe a lot of that to the help I got from Church Fuel.
