Here are some ways I can help you and your church or ministry organization:
Strategic Small Group Coaching
Small group strategies abound, but which one will help you recruit your entire congregation into community and help you recruit all of the leaders you will need. If you are suffering from information overload and would like a coach to walk you through the most effective and proven strategies, our Strategic Small Group Coaching is a great solution for you. Starting with an assessment and custom strategy for your church, you will be coached by expert, proven leaders to accomplish your goals. Take the guess-work out of small group ministry. Get a coach in your corner.
Interested in Strategic Small Group Coaching? We have programs for any size church and budget, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call Allen at 949-235-7428.
“Allen White, and the team have come along side of us to produce better leaders, better polished curriculum, better groups, and maybe best of all, lots more groups. We are grateful for their partnership.” — Gene Appel, Senior Pastor, Eastside Christian Church, Anaheim, CA and former Senior Pastor of Willow Creek Community Church, South Barrington, IL and Central Christian Church, Las Vegas, NV
Virtual Small Group Pastor
Hiring the right small group pastor can be difficult, so don’t. Rather than hiring someone who may or may not work out or who you have to train yourself, the Virtual Small Group Pastor option provides all of the strategy, support and logistics to effectively recruit new leaders, connect your members into groups, train new leaders, and develop a coaching structure to support the groups ministry. The Virtual Small Group Pastor will function as a staff pastor at your church participating in staff meetings, planning sessions as well as oversight and responsibility of the entire small group ministry. Interested in a Virtual Small Group Pastor? Please contact email@example.com or call Allen at 949-235-7428.
“Allen White is our small group superhero! Allen’s wisdom and insight helped us put all the pieces together for taking our small group ministry to a whole new level. Allen is able to see the big picture and was the key to helping us build healthy systems for a sustainable small group ministry.” — Matthew Hartsfield, Senior Pastor, Van Dyke Church, Lutz, FL
Onsite Small Group Assessments
Spiritual growth and group success are difficult to measure. How do you know where your ministry stands? You probably have a sense it could be more, but what and where? This Onsite Ministry Assessment will help you identify your ministry’s current strengths and weaknesses. By surveying group leaders and members, interviewing staff and key lay leaders, and reviewing your group history and goals, we will create a plan for your small group ministries future success. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call Allen at 949-235-7428.
“Allen White was easy to work with, coached us through the entire process, and was a wealth of information that helped me recruit and develop leaders, cast vision and have an even bigger vision for groups at our church. I highly recommend him to churches who want to increase their reach into their congregations and into their communities through groups.” – Pam Palmour, Groups Pastor, Copperfield Church, Houston, TX
One Hour Consultation.
What if you could bend the ear of a small group expert for an hour? You can. With this option, Allen White will give you a one hour consultation at an affordable rate to address any and all of your small group issues. Whether you are seeking proven methods for small group ministry, a sounding board for your current strategy, or an opportunity to share ideas, this option gives you access to both what’s worked as well as what’s ahead for small groups. This is perfect for small group pastors/directors who are not quite ready for a longer term coaching relationship.For more information, please contact email@example.com or call Allen at 949-235-7428.
Curriculum Production Coaching
Over the years, I have discovered the power of multiplying the life and ministry of the senior pastor by producing video-based curriculum. This easy to use tool is a catalytic force in launching 50 percent or more of your church into small groups. While you could spend a lot of money and hire a professional production team, the reality is most churches have the ability with the staff, volunteers and equipment they have to produce a publisher-quality curriculum for themselves. Curriculum Production Coaching will take you step by step the process to not only give you a beautiful and effective new curriculum, but also to train your team and give you a “printing press” to continue creating curriculum in the years ahead. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call Allen at 949-235-7428.
“Allen White coached my team and me through the creation and execution of Mt. Horeb UMC’s first in-house church-wide campaign. He was a phenomenal coach providing step by step direction with patient explanations of not just the “how’s” but the “why” beyond various aspects of the project. Our “More” Campaign was so successful that our work was used at a recent UMC conference event demonstrating the possibilities of home grown video resources. Beyond that, we were able to provide our resources to other churches to inspire and encourage. Thank you, Allen for giving so many churches the tools to reach the world for Jesus Christ!” — Claire Andrews, Mt Horeb United Methodist Church, Lexington, SC
