Dear Senior Pastor,

Today I want to invite you to take the next step in your ministry and church growth by joining my Senior Pastor Coaching Network.

Here's some powerful questions for you to consider:

  • What if your church could double in attendance over the next year and so could your personal effectiveness?
  • You could consistently get everything done at the office, easily manage your staff and volunteers, and still get home on time for dinner and family fun each night?
  • You could increase your offerings by as much as 50% over the next twelve months

These are typical results I've seen in hundreds of pastors who have completed my coaching process.

There is no conference, seminary class, set of conferences or coaching process offered by any other organization, church leader or denomination that is as proven as my coaching process.

I'm not teaching you theory or stuff that I've only read about.

I'm coaching you as a fellow practitioner who is in the trenches day after day leading a growing church in one of the most difficult cities in the world.

In addition, the coaching process that I will lead you through is a proven process that has been effective with over 2,000 churches from 60 diverse denominations and in small and large cities.


Use the "Down Economy" to Grow Your Church

With the challenging economic climate that we are experiencing right now, this is THE BEST time to lead a growing church. You see, unchurched people are most likely to come to church when they are:

  • In trouble
  • Under tension
  • In transition

And there's a lot of trouble, transition and tension in our country. Are you ready for the lost and broken people that God wants to send your way so that they can become fully devoted followers? Are you willing to get ready to lead at a high level?

When You Grow, Your Church Will Grow

The truth is, all growing churches are led by growing leaders!

For the last two decades, I've been asking, "Why do some churches grow and others do not?" There is only one commonality among all growing churches: they are led by growing leaders.

Through my coaching networks, I've personally coached more than 2,000 pastors — from American Baptists to Pentecostal Holiness to United Methodists (and every denomination in between) — who have made a serious commitment to grow. And God has honored their personal commitment to growth by allowing them to see evangelistic growth. Are you preparing for God to bless your church?

Here is what Ted Harvey, Senior Pastor of Somerset Hills Baptist Church in Basking Ridge, NJ, said about his experience:

"I have been challenged to go beyond what I ever thought possible for me and my church. Nelson has provided practical teaching, examples, tools, principles...everything I need to excel in the areas of stewardship, small groups, evangelism, assimilation and many other areas of church life. I'm looking forward to a second round."

You Can Break the Barriers That Are Keeping Your Church From Growing

Is it possible that you are facing one or more growth barriers or system constraints in your church? You see, the wrong question to ask when we want to grow a church and reach people is, "How do I get my church to grow?" This will lead to wrong answers every time.

The right question to ask when we want to lead our church to the next level is, "What is keeping my church from growing?"

There could very well be one particular constraint or barrier that if removed could allow your church to start growing immediately!

My Coaching Network Will Help You Break Through Your Barrier

You are invited to be a part an elite group of Senior Pastors that I will train in personal and church growth over the next year.

This coaching network is not for everyone. It is only for those pastors who are serious about leading their church to its full redemptive potential. Those pastors who are serious about being "stretched" in their thinking and leadership.

This network is for those who are willing to take action and make a commitment to fully participate. I'm not looking for "lukewarm" commitments.

Joining My Senior Pastor Coaching Network Will Help You Accomplish More

Instead of flying to my office, each month you will join in this coaching network via your computer.

As I'm coaching you, you will log on to your coaching hub where you can see my notes and coaching assignments.

In other words, you will experience the same coaching that others have experienced while SAVING THOUSANDS of dollars in travel costs and SAVING DOZENS OF HOURS on cross-country flights.

Unlike other Coaching Networks, You Get FREE Resources!

I will share every church growth and personal development principle I know and give you every resource I've developed to help you implement each principle.

Don't worry, it will not be overwhelming...everything will be delivered in manageable bits over the course of the year.


All That Said, Here's the "Official List" of What You Will Receive in This Network:

  • Monthly hands-on coaching from me.
  • A proven coaching process that leads to growth and health.
  • Over $4,166.70 in FREE resources from Church Leader Insights (including all 8 systems seminars) PLUS special discounts on any new resources.
  • Unlimited email access to me and my Church Leader Insights team.
  • A monthly coaching environment where everyone is focused on a Kingdom agenda.
  • Archived coaching sessions for your review. (NOTE: You can listen to the network at your leisure.)
  • Private "call-in" times with me to have your specific questions answered in more detail.
  • The opportunity to grow and take your church to the next level.

Plus much, much more! As you can see, just the tangible benefits you will receive as part of this network will far out-weigh your monthly financial investment.

I Will Help You Grow Each Month

In addition to our monthly coaching session, you will receive the recording for one of my exclusive church growth resources and a hand-selected book, plus another book (generally, a business book with clear application to ministry).

While this network will stretch you to grow, study and read, it will not be overwhelming. I'll help you prioritize so you can maximize your effectiveness as a Pastor.

At the same time, there will be opportunities for you to share your ideas and learnings from the network, plus you'll be able to submit prayer requests and ask questions to me and everyone else in the network.

Each network session is 75 minutes. I want to make sure that we fully cover all eight Church Systems and each of the nine Growth Barriers from my books and resources.

You Will Discover And Implement The Eight Systems In Your Church

We will cover each of my eight systems of a healthy church plus issues related to personal development, time management and growth barriers. Here is an outline of what we will cover:

After gaining a more thorough understanding of each of the Eight Systems of a Healthy Church, you can immediately start evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of your church. You’ll be able to develop a clear and easy-to-implement plan for the rest of your coaching experience.
Nelson will give you immediate next steps that you can take this Sunday to reach and keep more first-time guests in your church. These simple “Big Rocks” will have you seeing immediate results!
Stewardship is a big system! In this first part of two, Nelson will give you the basic steps that you can take to implement a healthy Stewardship System that is focused on discipleship as the ultimate goal.
You will learn how to create “Big Days” in your church and how to maximize your preaching through a One-Year Preaching Calendar. This session will immediately relieve your stress of having to plan and prepare from week to week.
In this second session on Evangelism, Nelson will help you create a culture of Evangelism in your church. If your church has been stagnant for years or is experiencing explosive growth, Nelson will give you the tools necessary to raise the evangelistic temperature of your church.
100% participation – that is the goal of this session. What can you do in your Sunday School or Small Groups Ministry that will help you get 100% participation? In this session, Nelson will share how The Journey (and numerous coaching alumni) consistently exceed that goal, regardless of denomination, location or background!
Regardless of your music, creative elements or traditions, Nelson will give you “Seven Ways to Improve the Quality of Your Worship Service.” PLUS, he’ll share four evaluation questions you can ask yourself and/or your staff every Monday so that you can improve Sunday after Sunday.
In this advanced session on Stewardship, Nelson will give you time-tested tools that have consistently helped coaching alumni increase their offerings by 27%! Plus, you’ll learn five stewardship decisions every pastor should make to lead an effective Stewardship System.
Nelson will give you an effective plan to help increase the number of volunteers in your church. You’ll also learn how to “Create a First Serve” opportunity that will motivate your people to serve.
Staffing can bring the greatest joys and the greatest headaches as you lead your church. Nelson will guide you on avoiding the multiple landmines in leading your staff. Even if you don’t have any staff, these are practical steps that you can take to lead your key leaders.
You will learn how to create a simple and practical personal growth plan that will help you enjoy your days off, take consistent vacations (where you’re not distracted by ministry) and be more effective each day in your ministry.
In this session, Nelson will help you create a church strategy utilizing all the tools that you’ve accumulated during the network. You’ll evaluate the health of each system in your church and what you can do to take them to the next level.

PLUS, you’ll receive a “Coaching Blueprint” that gives you specific next steps. There are “Getting Started” next steps that will help you implement the very basics of the system, an “Intermediate Blueprint” that will guide you to implement beyond the basics, and for Coaching Alumni there is an “Accelerated Blueprint” that will help you go even further with each system!


Finally, A Coaching Network To Fit Your Busy Schedule

Available now via a new on-demand, online module format, where you can participate at your convenience each month. Your experience will be identical, no matter when you log in.
Led by Nelson, this network is based on the 8 Systems of a Healthy Church that he has identifi­ed and taught to thousands of churches, through books, resources and live events. You’ll receive monthly sessions over the course of this network that you can fully participate in anytime. And unlike other networks, you’ll receive both the audio and video.
The Senior Pastor Coaching Network is normally $397.00 a month, but you can lock in the lowest rate available: just $397 a month for the full network. This includes FREE access to over $2,653.55 in bonus resources, including all eight Systems Seminars! Get started today!

Your Own Personal Church Growth Library

I strongly encourage you to make every monthly coaching module, but I also know that ministry is messy and uncertain, so I will record every session and you will receive an archive of every session in your hub.

Plus, every month you will receive resources and materials to help you implement what you are learning. You will have a complete Church Growth Library at your fingertips!

"The month we started our first coaching lesson we averaged 280 people. This month we averaged 360, and that does not include Easter Sunday, in which we had 480. I have been to great meetings where I was motivated to come home and grow our people and our church. This network for me feels like I am learning how to be a quarterback on a Super Bowl team, not from a loud, emotional, motivated coach, but from a successful NFL quarterback."

— Ed Trinkle, Life Church, Aston, PA
