Get Your Church Healthy

 Leading a church post-Covid requires more strategy and intentionality than ever before. 

The issues plaguing your church family are only becoming more complex.

The stakes for church leaders are high, and the consequences of failure cut deep.

In the wake of the Covid Crisis, church leaders in every denomination are facing:

Declining Attendance, In-Person & Online

Q

Overwhelming Stress

Q

Stalled Leadership

Q

Exhaustion

Q

Dwindling Community Impact

And Ultimately, People Missing Out On Jesus

Not experiencing growth is frustrating. It’s even worse to have first-time guests show up or new viewers online… and they never come back. The good news?

A fully-digital strategic planning process.

FOUR-STEP PROCESS

Each step of the process is completed by hosting a Session, including training and guided workshops. Leverage the Strategic Envisioning framework our team uses in-person with churches across North America. 

STEP-BY-STEP VIDEO TRAINING

The leaders in your church have varied levels of expertise in strategic planning. Our step-by-step training videos raise everyone to the same level of competency so you can make the best decisions.

TEAM WORKBOOKS

Each session in the process comes with a workbook for the members of your leadership team. The workbook ensures everyone remembers what is covered in the sessions.

WHITEBOARD WORKSHOPS

Every church is unique, and you need a process that accounts for your specific needs. Each session has corresponding whiteboard workshops that guide your team to make a custom, actionable plan.

FACILITATOR GUIDES

Strategic planning can be difficult. Our facilitator guides transform the complex into simple, bite-sized chunks so you can focus on what you do best: lead your church. You won't get lost in the weeds.

IMPLEMENTATION TOOLS

The course comes with tools and processes your church can use so that your plans become reality. This course is designed to make sure you stop talking about Revitalization and start experiencing it.

Have Questions? We've Got answers:

ISN'T "STRATEGIC PLANNING" FOR BUSINESSES, NOT THE CHURCH?

God is a fan of planning! He's made a plan through the ages, and He has a plan for your life. We believe that planning and listening to God's voice in the moment are not mutually exclusive. In fact, having a solid plan for the future enables you to hear God's voice more clearly in the moment because you're not frantically moving from one idea to the next.

IS CHURCH REVITALIZATION UNIVERSITY CONNECTED TO A SEMINARY?

No. Though Dr. Aubrey Malphurs, a senior professor at Dallas Theological Seminary, is the founder of Church Revitalization University, the process is not accredited by a seminary. However, Church Revitalization University is currently being used in at least one D.Min course.

Do we have access to all of the sessions Immediately?

Yes. Our hope is that you will conduct your team's work sessions at the same pace as you would if The Malphurs Group were working with you one-on-one, however, the process is totally self-paced. You have 12 months of access to complete the process.

CAN MY WHOLE LEADERSHIP TEAM ACCESS THE PROCESS?

Your church will have one log-in to Church Revitalization University. The training videos on the site are designed to be watched as a group, and the facilitator videos need to be watched prior to the team's work sessions. If you have multiple facilitators, be sure the username and password are something that can be shared internally. Note: the site license is for one church; it may not be shared with a group of churches. Are you a denominational leader? Contact us about a bulk rate.

DO YOU HAVE DISCOUNTS FOR SMALL CHURCHES?

The Church Revitalization University investment is thousands of dollars less than working one-on-one with a church consulting firm. The process is intentionally priced under $1,000 so that any church that desires to undergo a comprehensive strategic planning process, can. We occasionally offer discount codes; if you register for a free sneak peek account, you'll be in-the-know if any discounts are currently available.

HOW LONG DO WE HAVE ACCESS TO THE PROCESS?

You have access for one year (exactly 12 months) from the date of purchase. If you need more time, email us to request an extension.

Leverage the Four-Step Process:

STEP 1: Mission & Core Values

Thriving post-Covid churches have a firm foundation that keeps them on-track towards their Vision.

STEP 2: DISCIPLESHIP PATHWAY

Don't get stuck doing ministry the same way. Re-invent and streamline ministries to make and mature more disciples.

STEP 3: VISION & STRATEGY

Clarify where you're going and the impact God wants your church to make. Make firm commitments to what you'll accomplish this year.

STEP 4: IMPLEMENTATION

Transform your dreams and plans into reality. Leverage an implementation strategy that actually works, and see your church reach new people.

What makes Church Revitalization University different?

You shouldn’t have to be a big church to have a big impact. Having a big budget shouldn’t be a prerequisite to getting help either.

Church Revitalization University is a fully digital version of the Strategic Envisioning Process that the Malphurs Group uses in-person with churches around the world. Our mission is helping churches like yours, not growing our bottom line. That’s why we’re a registered nonprofit. We offer this fully digital, high quality, low-cost process to churches who want to thrive but simply can’t afford high consulting rates. 

Founded by Dr. Aubrey Malphurs, we’re a group of church leaders who understand the church world and exist to help you succeed in yours.

Hear From Others In Your Shoes

The Strategic Envisioning process not only helped us develop a vision, but also the strategies, actions, and engagement we needed to move toward it. Now our ministry has increased clarity and focuses on fewer things that have more Great Commission impact.

Lee W. | Maplewood Church

Strategic Envisioning rejuvenated mission-mindedness within our congregation, leading to meaningful and effective ministry not only in the church but also in our community. Our members are energized and motivated, instead of sitting as spectators.

Ed M. | Gateway Bible Church

As an aging congregation that was in a strong decline, the Strategic Envisioning process empowered our leaders to think about church and ministry in a way that has set them on the path toward health and vitality.
