Empowering and equipping churches and leaders to create lasting and transformational health.

There are a lot of exciting new things happening in our ministry in spite of the challenges we face in the world with the Covid-19 pandemic. Some of the highlights include:
- Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have moved all 2020 International training trips to 2021.
- We have updated our website with some new information. Be sure to check it out.
- We have announced a series of seminars this year for church leaders. You can read more here.
- We have launched our church revitalization network which will include 3 different networks for leaders and churches. You can learn more here.
- Right now we are looking for 200 new donors to pledge to give 200 a year starting in 2020: our 200@200 campaign has begun!
We are excited to have officially launched our church revitalization network!
While churches in the United States are in a state of decline, many desire to bring revitalization to their church. This program offers three different networks for church revitalization, currently open to all churches and church leaders in the United States.

Stories of Transformation
“When I was in need to develop a mission and vision process to help begin the revitalization of my congregation, Marcus Carlson was recommended to me. What struck me first was how relatable and encouraging he is for pastors who are trying to help congregations in trouble. Throughout the year I worked with him, he was never short on words to bolster my mood, affirm my decisions, or help the people entrusted to me. To that end, Marcus provided a foundation, structure, and process that was not only intuitive, but also forgiving. We were able to take other paths when needed, even as we stuck to his process at other times. Ultimately, the encouragement and help provided got us to a point where we now know why our congregation exists. Even better, we have hope for the future as we watch God work in and through us!”~Rev. Nathan Whittaker, Mount Calvary Lutheran Church, Fort Wayne, IN
