“Every great leader needs a coach.”—Jenni Catron, author and founder of The 4Sight Group

Leaders in the church often struggle on their own. They are often at their most effective when they have someone coaching them and pushing them to realize their full potential. And having a ministry coach can revolutionize your ministry by opening your eyes to new opportunities for personal and professional growth.

What Church Answers Members Are Saying:

“I have found Church Answers to add value not only to the church I lead, but it has also helped me to be a better leader. The content is distributed in such a way that is practical and the subject matter being covered always hits the bulls-eye. Church Answers is at the top of my most trusted resources!”

Charlie Moulton

Pastor, Lakeshore City Church

“Church Answers has quickly become my “go to” church resource. Dr. Rainer has a pastor’s heart with the intellect of a researcher. His guidance is grounded in the Bible and accompanied by both statistical analysis and years of experience. Also, the benefit of engaging with ministry peers on video conference calls and Facebook has proven to be invaluable.”

Michael Rubino

Pastor, Cornerstone Bible Church
