I have known Ray Johnson since he was a college student...He has served in many different staff positions--lead pastor, associate pastor, discipleship pastor, and children & student pastor. As a result, Ray has a deep and broad understanding of what it takes to lead a church that is spiritually healthy and effective in growing both qualitatively and quantitatively. Put another way, Ray understands the two essential purposes of the church--to reach the lost and disciple fellow believers. He also possesses practical insight to the many important leadership principles including crafting a compelling vision, developing a ministry strategy, leading change, managing conflict, equipping the saints, leading the staff, managing the budget and many other important fundamentals of leading and guiding a church.

Coaching & Mentoring
We all need someone to come along side us at times. Ministry can be difficult, but it's much easier when we don't walk alone. With 35 plus years of ministry experience in multiple ministry roles and as a husband of 36 plus years (with 4 kids), Ray would love to come along side you and help. He has a heart to be a pastor to the pastor.

Key metrics evaluation

Mission, Vision, Strategy
So often churches struggle because they are unclear on their mission and vision. When this is unclear, churches tend to drift or abandon their purpose. Let us meet with you and your leadership team to help lead you to discover what your mission and vision are. From there, we can begin to help you strategize how to do the ministry God has called you to do.
The price varies depending on the length of time needed and the size of the church. Contact us for more details.
As a pastor to terminally ill patients, Ray has dealt with grief again and again among patients and their families. Ray can train your leaders in "how to comfort those in grief" or lead a "GriefCare" Seminar for your church body.
From 1st Time Guest to Small Group Involvement
Let us help you with your assimilation process--from following up with your first time guests to moving members into small groups to help make them fully committed disciples. Statistics tell us that how you follow up on guest does make a difference and that members are five times more likely to remain in the church if they get involved in a small group.
We can focus on the whole process or just one or two aspects. Price varies.
