Church Advance

Church Advance

The goal of the Church Advance Team (CAT) is to catalyze a movement of Spirit empowered churches and leaders that are equipped to advance God’s Kingdom in their communities. 

Are you, like many churches, facing challenges that you can’t seem to overcome, alone?  The CAT is committed to come alongside and to partner with you in discerning how you might overcome those challenges.  

"Fellowship Bible Church in Middleburg, FL has been greatly helped by Church Advance. The team spent several hours with our board on Saturday attentively listening to our heart for the Lord, highlighting our strengths and lovingly drawing out areas for needed growth. They  attended our worship the following morning and gave strategic advice through objective observation. They came, not to give answers, but to assist us to be a stronger church. We look forward to working on the areas discussed and having them back for their godly counsel."  - Chip Dewitt – Interim Pastor


Church Advance process can be summarized in four words:  HEAR, SEE, DO, TOGETHER.  

The process begins when you reach out to us and we come to you for:

Dialogue- Initially we will spend a weekend with you listening to the pastor, his wife and your leadership, and observing the church in action, seeking together, to HEAR what God has to say about the church and its surrounding community.

Discovery- After a time of prayer and dialogue, we will recommend a variety of assessments for your church at large and leaders to help us all SEE the gifts available in the body to help the church move forward and to SEE roadblocks that might be holding the church back.

Direction-  Knowing that your church and its leaders are committed to advancing the gospel and making disciples, we will work with the church and its leadership to put together the plan that God is calling you and your church to DO in order to advance and reach the community where it lives, works and plays.

Development- We are committed to coming alongside of you and your church for the long-haul to develop a coaching friendship so that we can advance TOGETHER
