Grow a Healthy Church

Updated on February 17, 2014

We can partner with you to grow a healthy church

After 30 years of pastoring in our church we are now partnering with pastors to grow healthy churches.

We love bringing

fresh eyes

cool heads

warm hearts

and a love for the church.

While we have academic qualifications our edge is our 30 years of experience in pastoral leadership. We understand the complexities and pressures of pastoring in the 21st century.

We appreciate the highs and lows of pastoral life and we bring this empathy to the table.

Engage us as your consultants and coaches and we will partner with you to grow a healthy church.

What have we done in ministry?

We are credentialed C3 Church ministers with 30 years pastoral leadership experience at C3 Church Hepburn Heights, Western Australia.

We pastored in our church from 1982 – 2012 and built a large, regional, multi-generational, healthy church that has impacted its local community through innovative programs and multiplied itself through church planting both locally and overseas.

Amongst other things we love the fact that our church has planted 6 churches in the last 18 years and has 67% of our adults in connect groups.

We have both led inter-denominational groups, Perth Christian Minister’s Fellowship and Women In Leadership Ministries. We have also ministered extensively throughout Australia and internationally.

Through Christ’s grace we are still on this incredible journey and have transitioned our church to stellar next generation leaders.

From February 2012 our church has sent us out to be specialist ministers in the wider body of Christ.

Books we have written

Next!: Future proof your church with succession planning that works (Grow a Healthy Church)

Succession planning is a complex and difficult process.

Evasion and inaction are too often the order of the day as church leaders grapple with the challenges of leadership transitions.

In Next! John Finkelde shares extensively from contemporary succession management research and his own journey of transitioning his church to a next generation leader.

John Finkelde’s experience of being both an incoming and an outgoing pastor will guide you towards a succession planning template that will help you avoid the pitfalls that face pastors in transition.

What can we do for your church?

This consult includes interviews, analysis and training of your volunteers and key leaders.

We then make major and minor recommendations.

Over the following 12 months we coach you in the implementation of these recommendations plus anything else you want to address.

We support you through his entire process and help you each step of the way.
