In a society where Christian living is less than popular, the concept of growing a church is simply "AUDACIOUS"! With the daily increasing number of ministers walking away from pulpits across the globe, more than prayer is needed to support those who have answered the call to carry the Gospel. Today, there MUST be STRATEGY!
We believe it. That's why we named it: Your Church CAN Grow! Not might; not maybe; but CAN! Our professional endeavor is to find, expose, and develop potential: in leaders, in congregations, and in communities. And we don't just talk the talk, we walk the walk. Our concepts and innovations have been designed and tested through years of practical experience in planting and rehabilitating churches. Now, we're offering these lessons and resources to provide
leadership and support for churches, ministries, universities and non-profit organizations. From our perspective, we've learned some hard lessons so you don't have to!

Here's what they've said about us...
Rev. Shonda Gladden
Pastor, St. Paul AME Church
"The Your Church Can Grow Session led by Rev. RJ was jam-packed with informative and innovative content. In addition to the practical resources he shared, his candid and lighted approach was disarming and moved the entire audience to truly believe in our capacity to grow. I could not wait to return to our congregation to begin implementing the ideas he shared. Although it's only been a month since I participated in his session, we are seeing fruit - we just read-in four new members! I'm not suggesting this workshop was the sole reason for the growth; but I truly believe that applying what we learned in [the] session has contributed to how our congregation has been convinced that our church can indeed grow!"
Rev. Gregory C. Nettles
Pastor, Bethel AME Church
"The anointed and excellence in spirit and truth which comes through the teaching is outstanding and relevant to the times in which we live, work, and play.
It speaks to the multiple generations in the church and allows the Spirit of God to direct the flow of the teaching. I would strongly recommend any serious clergy leader to open your congregation and leaders to receive and then to become doers, as well as hearers."
Rev. Christal L. Bell
Director of Christian Education
4th Episcopal District AMEC
"This is NOT your typical church growth workshop! The Your Church Can Grow experience provides interactive and innovative insights on church growth and development! Their approach, utilizing practical tools and skills, is a fresh way to re-imagine evangelism in the local church and beyond. The engaging session allows participants to leave with "take-aways" and tools to truly help your church grow!"
