3 exciting announcements to mark our 10 year anniversary!

This month, we celebrate 10 years as a ministry!!  We are so amazed at what God has done and we are excited to make these 3 big announcements in light of our anniversary and the beginning of this new year.

1) New Ministry Headquarters

Our operations have been scattered among several locations and backrooms throughout the last 10 years.  The time has come that our ministry growth demanded our own space.  We have just set up our main office in Louisville, KY. Come by and see us!

Find our location and pictures of our new headquarters HERE.


2) Live Video Cohort Training

This April, we will be launching a new live video cohort to train pastors and church leaders.  It will be hosted by Zoom and Brian Croft will be leading the training.  This is in partnership with NAMB and will be all our training materials with a focus on Church Revitalization.  This will be FREE for all participants, but each participant must apply and be accepted into the cohort.

For more information and how to apply go HERE.


3) Staff Expansion and Growth

Our growing ministry has brought more needs.  We have brought on more staff to accommodate our growing needs.  We added a staff member to help organize and run the cohort as well as another woman to help Cara Croft with the women’s ministry that was launched last summer.

See our expanded staff and their pictures HERE


Exciting days are ahead!

  • More books to be released this year.
  • Translations in multiple languages are in process.
  • International trainings are happening around the world.
  • More podcast episodes are being recorded.

Thank you for those who partner with us in prayer, promotion, and financial support.  We cannot do this without you.  We press on in 2019 with anticipation of God’s blessing on our work to help pastors thrive in the trenches of pastoral ministry.
