Tools For Pastors


During past year, it has been incredible to watch God open doors to new connections with other ministries, networks, and church leaders.  One of my favorite new connections is with the tremendous team that leads the Exponential Conferences.  It has been really cool to see the network of relationships that has webbed off Greg’s relationships with Todd Wilson, the president of Exponential.  Not only has it opened the door to several new relationships, but it has also introduced us to some fantastic resources on the Multiplication front.

Daniel Im and his team have developed a new site called  This is one of the most up-to-date and comprehensive sites I have seen to resource healthy multiplying leaders and churches.  On a weekly basis, they add new content with the ongoing hope to give church leaders and multipliers the newest tools and best practices.  This past month Greg was a featured presenter on the site!  While a great deal of content is free, a premium membership will give you full access to all the content on the site.  I highly recommend it.  If you are interested in accessing the premium content, reach out to me for the HGC discount code.

Dave Phillips and New Life Christian Church have built some online systems for all Church Multipliers.  They were developed in the trenches of real life multiplication and then taken online for everyone to be able to use.  Passion for Planting has a ton of free content, online courses, and is most certainly worth a bookmark in your browser.  Their PlanterPlan software is a powerful tool to help multipliers work through the long list of tasks required to get from dream to launch.  They have both a ‘New Church’ and ‘New Campus’ option inside this tool.  It is well worth the $149 price tag.  If we have more than 10 churches accessing in this tool from the HGC network, we can get that price lowered (Reach out to me for more info).

As HGC continues to grow, so does our heart to equip the Church.  We want to further empower the men and women of our network to go further faster.  Accessing resources and tools, like the two mentioned above, not only accomplishes that goal, but keeps HGC from reinventing the wheel.  As you and your church continue to move toward multiplication, I hope you will get more familiar with and Passion for Planting.  I pass them along with the highest of recommendations.  If you have questions or would like to talk about them please feel free to contact me.

Praying for you today!
