Drive membership and spread the gospel by learning from the best. That’s what a 30Group is all about.

The 30Group peer collaboration concept is smart and simple: bring together similar, non-competing church leaders from a broad cross-section of the country to exchange best practices, experiences, ideas and strategies.


Being part of an interactive 30Group is like having some of the best church leaders in the world working with you. Their expertise, insights and experiences can be a valuable part of your church, just as your input is important to them.  Meet with peers for one-and-a-half to three days several times per year to analyze financial composites, compare notes, fine-tune processes and look for new ways to spread the gospel and grow your outreach and ministry.

30Group members enjoy monthly financial composites to compare church operational health against each other and national Benchmarks, as well as innovative communication tools to keep in touch between meetings. Executive Moderators facilitate the meetings and members build the agenda with topics that are relevant and important to them.

Forward Business Planning

Bottom Line:
We pay close attention to each pastor’s membership size so each group is comprised of comparably-sized churches in terms of active members, total membership, as well as giving and expense budgets.  Furthermore, group members are situated geographically to gain the benefit of ideas from all parts of the country, to assure open and frank discussions with no danger of intersecting with a neighboring pastor / group member.
