Church Answers Consulting started in 1989, and since then we’ve served hundreds of churches and organizations in North America. Led by Sam Rainer and Thom S. Rainer, the team is comprised of a network of trusted experts from a variety of fields.
Every church has unanswered questions. Whether you’re asking why you aren’t growing, if your church is healthy, if you know your community, or if your leaders can help you reach the next level, we are here to help you find answers. Our church consultation plans give you an opportunity to gain insights into your church’s community, congregation and leadership.
Most churches need practical help, not high-level theory. Most churches need a comprehensive solution, not a partial answer.
We serve churches of all sizes—from small churches to megachurches. We help you connect the dots between your community, your congregation, and your leadership. It’s this three-part approach to our consultations that enables us to serve your church by offering a comprehensive assessment.
Because of the technology tools available, our team can provide most of a consultation virtually and reduce the church’s costs dramatically. The process is simple but thorough. Church Answers provides a set of tools for the church to complete. We analyze the results and communicate with church leaders via Zoom teleconference.
The “Plus” in the consultation is the only component that is not virtual. We send a secret guest to your worship services to provide an objective view from a guest’s perspective. The secret guest sends us a thorough report that we then communicate to you.
This Comprehensive Consultation is only $3,800, a fraction of the cost of our typical on-site consultations. You get most of the benefits at a highly affordable cost. You can add a virtual facility assessment for $750 for up to 30,000 square feet of your space. Virtual Plus Consultations is $2,000. Contact us for details.
There are a number of variables, but the average timeline is around 45 days.
It depends. We will work with you to communicate clearly, fairly, and graciously.
Many believe this is the perfect time for a church consultation. Understanding the church’s current health could point to the ideal candidate.
