Dear Pastor Tony,

Here's the sad truth: For most Senior Pastors, increasing attendance, or even just maintaining attendance is a challenge.

And you have to work long, hard hours just to take care of all the "back-end" stuff. Sound familiar? Ever feel like the stress of running a church is distracting you from your calling of being a Senior Pastor?

Well, what if:

  • Rosedale Church Of The Nazarene could double in attendance over the next year and so could your personal effectiveness?
  • You could consistently get everything done at the office, easily manage your staff and volunteers, and still get home on time for dinner and family fun each night?
  • You could increase your offerings by as much as 50% over the next twelve months?

These are typical results I've seen in hundreds of pastors who have completed my coaching process.

There is no conference, seminary class, set of conferences or coaching process offered by any other organization, church leader or denomination that is as proven as my coaching process.

I'm not teaching you theory or stuff that I've only read about.

I'm coaching you as a fellow practitioner who is in the trenches day after day leading a growing church in one of the most difficult cities in the world.

In addition, the coaching process that I will lead you through is a proven process that has been effective with over 1,200 churches from 40 diverse denominations and in small and large cities.

Use the "Down Economy" to Grow Your Church

With the challenging economic climate that we are experiencing right now, this is THE BEST time to lead a growing church. You see, unchurched people are most likely to come to church when they are:

  • In trouble
  • Under tension
  • In transition

And there's a lot of trouble, transition and tension in our country. Are you ready for the lost and broken people that God wants to send your way so that they can become fully devoted followers? Are you willing to get ready to lead at a high level?

Pastor Tony, When You Grow, Rosedale Church Of The Nazarene Will Grow

The truth is, all growing churches are led by growing leaders!

For the last two decades, I've been asking, "Why do some churches grow and others do not?" There is only one commonality among all growing churches: they are led by growing leaders.

Through my coaching networks, I've personally coached more than 1,200 pastors — from American Baptists to Pentecostal Holiness to United Methodists (and every denomination in between) — who have made a serious commitment to grow. And God has honored their personal commitment to growth by allowing them to see evangelistic growth. Are you preparing for God to bless your church?

Here is what Ted Harvey, Senior Pastor of Somerset Hills Baptist Church in Basking Ridge, NJ, said about his experience:

"I have been challenged to go beyond what I ever thought possible for me and my church. Nelson has provided practical teaching, examples, tools, principles...everything I need to excel in the areas of stewardship, small groups, evangelism, assimilation and many other areas of church life. I'm looking forward to a second round."

You Can Break the Barriers That Are Keeping Your Church From Growing

Is it possible that you are facing one or more growth barriers or system constraints in your church? You see, the wrong question to ask when we want to grow a church and reach people is, "How do I get my church to grow?" This will lead to wrong answers every time.

The right question to ask when we want to lead our church to the next level is, "What is keeping my church from growing?"

There could very well be one particular constraint or barrier that if removed could allow your church to start growing immediately!

My Coaching Network Will Help You Break Through Your Barrier

Nelson Searcy, Lead Pastor
The Journey Church
Founder, Church Leader Insights

You are invited to be a part an elite group of Senior Pastors that I will train in personal and church growth over the next year.

You see, my next round of Tele-Coaching for Senior Pastors begins on February 28, 2013 and I want you to be a part of it.

This coaching network is not for everyone. It is only for those pastors who are serious about leading their church to its full redemptive potential. Those pastors who are serious about being "stretched" in their thinking and leadership.

This network is for those who are willing to take action and make a commitment to fully participate. I'm not looking for "lukewarm" commitments.

"Tele-Coaching" Will Help You Accomplish More

Instead of flying to my office in New York City, you will join in this coaching network via your telephone and computer.

As I'm coaching you by telephone, you will log on to a secure Web site where you can see my notes and coaching assignments.

In other words, you will experience the same coaching that others have experienced while SAVING THOUSANDS of dollars in travel costs and SAVING DOZENS OF HOURS on cross-country flights.

Unlike other Coaching Networks, You Get FREE Resources!

I will share every church growth and personal development principle I know and give you every resource I've developed to help you implement each principle.

Don't worry, it will not be overwhelming...everything will be delivered in manageable bits over the course of the year.

All That Said, Here's the "Official List"
of What You Will Receive in This Network:

  • Monthly hands-on coaching from me.
  • A proven coaching process that leads to growth and health.
  • Plus, you get full access to the Renegade Pastors Network free ($1,188.00 value). You get two networks for one investment!
  • Over $1,679. 00 in FREE resources from Church Leader Insights, PLUS special discounts on any new resources.
  • Unlimited email access to me and my Church Leader Insights team.
  • A monthly coaching environment where everyone is focused on a Kingdom agenda.
  • MP3s of each session for your review.  (NOTE: Even if you miss the exact date, you can listen to the network at your leisure.)
  • FREE attendance at all half-day live or webinar training events during your network (up to $2,550 value).
  • Private "call-in" times with me to have your specific questions answered in more detail.
  • A private day-long meeting with me, exclusively for tele-coaching participants (located in Walt Disney World, Orlando, FL) — a $2,100 value!
  • The opportunity to grow and take your church to the next level.

Plus much, much more! As you can see, just the tangible benefits you will receive as part of this network will far out-weigh your monthly financial investment.

I Will Help You Grow Each Month

In addition to our 90 minute monthly call, you will receive the recording for one of my exclusive church growth resources and a hand-selected book, plus another book (generally, a business book with clear application to ministry).

While this network will stretch you to grow, study and read, it will not be overwhelming. I'll help you prioritize so you can maximize your effectiveness as a Pastor.

At the same time, there will be opportunities for you to share your ideas and learnings from the network, plus you'll be able to submit prayer requests and ask questions to me and everyone else in the network.

Each network session is one and a half hours long and we will meet monthly for one year. I want to make sure that we fully cover all eight Church Systems and each of the nine Growth Barriers from my books and resources.

You Will Discover And Implement The Eight Systems Of Rosedale Church Of The Nazarene

We will cover each of my eight systems of a healthy church plus issues related to personal development, time management and growth barriers. As a reminder, the eight systems are:

  • Evangelism: You will learn how to attract a crowd to worship every week.
  • Assimilation: You will learn how to move people from first-time guests to
    membership in your church.
  • Worship Planning: You will learn how to plan, implement and evaluate the weekend services at your church to bring people to Christ.
  • Small Groups: You will learn how to fill and produce small groups in your church.
  • Ministry: You will learn how to mobilize people for significant ministry.
  • Stewardship: You will learn how to disciple extravagant givers in your church.
  • Leadership: You will learn how to develop leaders at all levels of your church.
  • Strategy: You will learn how to constantly evaluate and improve your church.

Plus, we will cover calendar-specific opportunities like planning for a Christmas Offering, preparing for Easter, managing staff and planning for 2013.

You will complete the network with a personal library worth of church growth materials and personal development insights.

This network is like a doctorate in church leadership, but I'll teach you the "practical, will-work tomorrow" stuff they don't teach in seminary!

Finally, A Coaching Network To Fit Your Busy Schedule

Each tele-coaching session will be from 11:00am - 12:30pm Eastern time. Literally, you could call in to the network from anywhere and from any time zone in the world. Technology is great!

All the sessions are on a Thursday. Remember, each session is only 90 minutes, so even if you have to step out of a meeting or call in from home, it will not consume your entire day. Here are the dates:

  • February 28, 2013
  • March 21, 2013
  • April 18, 2013
  • May 16, 2013
  • June 20, 2013
  • July 18, 2013
  • August 29, 2013
  • September 19, 2013
  • October 17, 2013
  • November 14, 2013
  • December 12, 2013
  • January 16, 2014

Your Own Personal Church Growth Library

I strongly encourage you to make every date a priority, but I also know that ministry is messy and uncertain, so I will record every session and you will receive the complete MP3s of each session within a day or two of the network. If you attend the session live, then the MP3 is for your library and review.

Even if you are unable to be "live on the call," you will still be able to gain the full experience.

"The month we started our first coaching lesson we averaged 280 people. This month we averaged 360, and that does not include Easter Sunday, in which we had 480. I have been to great meetings where I was motivated to come home and grow our people and our church. This network for me feels like I am learning how to be a quarterback on a Super Bowl team, not from a loud, emotional, motivated coach, but from a successful NFL quarterback."
— Ed Trinkle, Life Church, Aston, PA

Your Results Will Exceed The Financial Investment Of This Network

This network will be conducted by telephone and web, so there are NO TRAVEL EXPENSES involved. There is an investment to be a part of the network, but every person I've coached so far has told me THE RESULTS FROM THIS NETWORK FAR EXCEED THE INVESTMENT.

I have tried to keep the monthly investment in this network as low as possible. But remember, you are receiving thousands of dollars of resources, free passes to my seminars, email support, a private day-long event, private consulting and an unparalleled one-year coaching process.

At the same time, you are saving thousands of dollars in hotel, flight costs, rental car expenses, gas, resources purchases, etc. That said, the monthly investment is only $347 per month.

“My time in Nelson's tele-coaching network has been a gift from God in helping me understand the systems of our church and areas that need help and change. The information is always valuable and practical. At times it can be overwhelming as I try to take it all in at once. But over time I know that much of what I am learning is sinking in and bearing fruit. I look forward to the rest of my time in the network and to being part of another one in the near future.”

Jon Beyer
First Lutheran Church
Hot Springs, AR

“This seminar has taken me to another level of leadership as a senior pastor. It has given me a stronger, birds-eye view of what is necessary for our church to be healthy. It has also taught me how to implement changes that will facilitate health in each key area of our church. This seminar will grow you and provide you will invaluable resources you can share with your whole team.”

Chad McCartney
Grace Bible Church
Laredo, TX

“You all have helped us so much! My wife just left my office and she said,
'You have learned so much in this group. I've seen so many things we are doing that we would have never thought of on our own.' She is right.”

Craig Walker
Lifeway Church
Celina, TX

“Our church had plateaued for three years, with an average attendance of 250 - in desperation I joined the Tele-coaching network. With the valuable insight and coaching, our average attendance is 450 and we have had more commitments to Christ, baptisms and new members in the past six months than in the past six years. Thanks again”

Larry Mask
City South Church
San Antonio, TX

“I know this sounds exaggerated but this network literally saved my ministry. I was about to quite the pastorate after 24 years but I decided to give this network a try. It was my last hope. We have seen an explosion in growth the past four months of this network and our giving is at record highs. We have even hired on a new staff member since beginning the network. This network is a MUST!.”

Sheldon Boyd
Cornerstone Community Nazarene
Chino, CA

“I can't begin to tell you what a difference the network has made in my ministry. I had been faithfully meeting with my staff for years prior to the network. We were totally committed to growth but seemed to be at a loss as far as identifying some of the snags in our ministry. Through†the network, not only have we been able to identify the areas our ministry was stalling in but we have also been given clear and effective solutions to see our ministry begin to grow again. I look forward to the next coaching network. The best is yet to be!”

Mark Cullum
Capitol Foursquare Church
Sacramento, CA

“This stuff works! Nelson provides clarity in leadership, tools that are practical and user friendly, accountability in presentation, and a God centered structure for doing church the New Testament way. I would never be where I am as a leader and we would never be where we are as a church without this. This coaching network will always be a very special part of who God is forming me to be.”

Randy Fields
The Gathering
Thomasville, GA

“I can be a tight wad and was very relunctant to join. Our church had gone no where in years, really lacking the systems to get from point A to point B. Since I joined our church has been totally transformed, we have a strategy and systems that are getting in place. Our attendance has probably doubled, our finances have grown and people are excited about what is going on. It has brought a tremendous clarity in my leadership and people can see where we are going. I would highly recommend giving yourself a year of super charged growth.”

Devon Davoux
Cornerstone Church
Vermillion, SD

“I and the church I serve have benefited greatly from Nelson's expertise and has allowed us to think through critical issues that have kept us from realizing our potential in Christ. It gives me time personally to break away from the bump and grind of ministry and renew my passion and drive. I would highly recommend this coaching network to anyone and any church looking to invigorate its ministry.”

Jim Pryor
Richfield Rd. Church
Flint, MI

“The coaching network helps. From fresh ideas, practical solutions to common obstacles, cutting edge strategies for growth, to continual reminders regarding the age old neccesity of prayer and seeking God, it just helps.”

Mat Weeks
Horizon Church
Surprise, AZ

“Since joining the coaching network, more of our guests are becoming regular attenders. We have seen our giving recover after having been impacted negatively by the economy. Through the use of the Connection Card we have more communication than we have ever had. The material shared not only works in a city, it also works in a rural community.”

Randy Joslin
The Oasis
Farmington, NM

“Understanding the eight systems of a church is so vital and they should teach this in seminary. For example, stewardship system encouraged me to preach about finances with confidence and boldness.”

Young McCann
Journey Christian Fellowship
San Luis Obispo, CA

“The tele-coaching network has proven to be very valuable tool. First, walking through the eight church systems has helped me not only improve existing systems in our church, but also completely recreate some systems that simply were not working. The material covered is immensely practical and applicable to church of any type. Simply being in a coaching network has encouraged me to set aside more time for strategic planning and vision casting for our church, something that too often was pushed to the back burner during the business of the week.”

Jeff Smith
Real Life Community Church
Bel Air, MD

“The Tele-Coaching Network has been very beneficial to me as Sr. Pastor and my staff. The sessions are very practical and easy to implement.The network has helped our church go to the next leval both spiritually and numerically.”

Johnny Johnson
Gadsden Christian Fellowship
Gadsden, IA

“This experience has been priceless. Sure, I could have bought all of the resources and saved money, but it would have been like buying the top of the line skis, but not know how to ski. It's more than information, it's implementation. I wish someone would have explained this more in the beginning. Information with repetition and accountability has not only set me up on my skies but now I'm on my way down the hillside. Thanks!”

Michael Ortell
Pulaski Free Methodist Church
Hanover, MI

“I believe that coaching is a must for a church planter. I am not sure we would have survived our first year without it. The support, wisdom, and personal encouragment have been pricless. Thank you Nelson and the coaching staff for standing beside us in our first year.”

Kipp Penrod
Life House
Carlisle, TX

“Nelson's coaching has helped crystallize several leadership principles into hands-on, step by step actions. Our church has seen growth in leadership depth, volunteerism and risk taking. I would recommend this coaching network to anyone who wants to see their church grow and flourish.”
