Join today and get Co-Labs, Know Your Suite of tools, and more!

Membership Benefit #1: Co-Labs

What’s a co-lab? Deeper dives into pain points of ministry: we’ll take a trending or significant topic from a real church and provide analysis, solutions, and a checklist of actionable items that can be implemented right away. Five will be explored each year.

Membership Benefit #2: Custom Know Your Community Report

Do you know your community? This crucial report helps your church continue to reach and serve your community according to its makeup (demographics) and behaviors (psychographics). Gold subscribers get a fresh copy of their report every single year. View Sample Report

Membership Benefit #3:  Know Your Church Report

The Know Your Church Report consists of a 160-item questionnaire that measures a church’s perceived health in six purposes of the church: worship, evangelism, fellowship, discipleship, prayer, and ministry. Church leaders choose a sampling of the church membership to complete the 15-20 minute survey, and we provide a detailed health report for the church.

Membership Benefit #4: Know Your Self

Through the Know Yourself assessment tool, we will provide you with a description of your wiring as it relates to pastoral leadership. This personal assessment will help you understand your own strengths and weaknesses and how you can grow as a leader.

Membership Benefit #5:  Know Your Budget

*Coming September 2022

Church budgets matter.

Budgets are tools for mission, not just a necessary evil. We believe that pastors and church leaders who stay on top of current trends and best practices will craft less wasteful and mission-oriented budgets.

Membership Benefit #6: Online Community

It’s not consultation… it’s community. Get connected with Thom Rainer and our team of experts providing answers for our members. Our combined ministry experience and passion for church health mean we have probably already been in your shoes. But we’re not the only experts. Our community of 1,800+ active church leaders are committed to helping you find the answer you need.
