The Church Leader Institute’s
“Church Leader Success System”
A complete system for developing a successful church and renewing your passion as a church leader
Dear Church Leader:
There are some alarming secrets about leading a church – whether as a member of clergy, a manager, or a volunteer in a leadership position — that reveal how difficult the job really is:
The reason for the above issues comes down to a simple fact: Faith alone is not enough. The Bible makes it clear: “Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead” (NIV James 2:17).
To develop a successful church and continue to feel passion, energy, and spirit in your role, you also need to put in place the right strategies, tactics, and behaviors to get results.
Once you have these tools in place, everything can change, in big ways:
Again: The above results don’t happen with faith and prayer alone. It is a combination of faith and prayer plus training and education….and a tool kit that shows you a proven system for successful church leadership.
For this reason, I am delighted to introduce you to a program that is designed specifically for members of the clergy and laypeople in leadership roles in a church…The Church Leadership Institute’s “Church Leader Success System.”
About the Program’s Developer
Before sharing more about this program and how it can help you, let me tell you a bit about myself. My name is Timothy Riggs, and I am a pastor with over three decades of experience turning around and growing churches.
I have particular experience in helping struggling or somewhat stagnant churches become vibrant again. I have helped churches launch innovative new ministries, attract new members, re-engage with the community, and become fiscally sound.
As a result of this track record, I have become a mentor to pastors and church leaders nationwide. I am humbled by the calls I have received over the years for advice, coaching, and support.
After becoming a bit overwhelmed with the time it takes to answer these requests, I decided to take the lessons I learned and create a comprehensive and affordable system that gives church leaders EVERYTHING they need to know to build a thriving church.
The Church Leadership Institute’s “Church Leader Success System” is the result of 30 years of experience, and I am delighted to be able to offer it to you…
What You Will Get With “The Church Leader Success System”
The Church Leader Success System is a step-by-step system and toolkit for you to make an immediate difference in your church. It is not a book that you read but rather a set of tools that you can put to use immediately. Here is a small sample of what you will learn when you sign up:
Set a Vision that includes, and reaches beyond people who are already in the church. You get a step-by-step process to develop a vision for your church. This is not a fuzzy or vague vision that means nothing, but one that will mobilize church members and the community to action.
Find your unique strengths and use them to grow the church. With this program, you will discover your unique, God-given talents and how to build on them for success. You also learn how to identify strengths in others and use those strengths to help the church achieve its mission and vision.
Get your church in tip top financial shape. Your system includes a spreadsheet for you to plan your cash flow. In addition, you also learn how to handle immediate financial issues, for instance if your offerings decrease or in the event you have a school and/or daycare and the enrollment numbers fall short.
Develop a strategy for your church to stand out. You get a proprietary, 3-part methodology to set strategy for your church, based on the unique strengths, assets, and needs of your church and community.
Get leverage on your time so you can focus on what matters (and what you enjoy most). One of the biggest complaints I get from church leaders is that they are pulled in too many directions. That’s why the Church Leader Success System includes a chapter on time management. You will gain powerful insights about how you spend your time now, along with recommendations about how you should be spending your time – and how to get there.
Make smart decisions about new investments and directions. Nothing can bankrupt a church faster than making a poor investment decision, whether in a land purchase or new facilities. We give you a toolkit to make wise decisions about new opportunities and innovations.
Learn the leadership behaviors and beliefs that mark extraordinary church leaders and set them apart from mediocre leaders. You discover research about what sets the most effective church leaders apart from others, along with a plan to assess your own strengths and opportunities to improve.
Communicate your love for God and your congregation powerfully and authentically. As a church leader, you probably already have strong communication skills. With The Church Leader Success System, you learn how to reach the hearts, souls, and minds of the people you speak to with even more impact.
Implement proven tactics to get your church more visible and attractive to members of the community. You discover dozens of ways to get more visible in order to grow your congregation.
Launch ministries that make a measurable difference…for the community and the church. Some ministries are more successful than others, and this program isolates the factors that lead to success. You even get templates to plan and launch new ministries, so that they are successful out of the gate.
Engage current members. Current members are the lifeblood of your church. Yet many of them are disengaged, or less engaged than they could be. You get a complete action plan to assess the membership in your church and take them to the next level of engagement.
Attract new members, even from new segments of the community. One of the biggest challenges of an existing church is attracting new, diverse members – for instance youth. We show you case studies and best practices to do just that.
Build a strong Board. At many churches, the Board lacks the formal skills, talent, and discipline to lead the church forward. Your Church Leader Success System includes an entire chapter devoted to strengthening the board and giving them the skills they need to lead.
Stay the course that God has set for you, even when you face obstacles and criticism. Church leaders have resilience and move things forward even when others have given up. You discover the language and attitudes needed to shift people from negativity to a renewed sense of possibility and action.
Develop new leaders. One of the biggest, and yet most overlooked roles of a church leader is identifying and developing future leaders. That’s why you get a complete process to constantly recruit, develop, and challenge new leaders. If you do that, your church will never stop growing and being vibrant!
Lead effective teams. For some reason, volunteer teams in a church can be difficult to manage. Conflicts erupt. Progress gets off track. As part of your system, you receive a team launching, building, and management toolkit.
Influence people to get on board with you. There is an art and science to influencing others, and we show you authentic strategies to achieve your goals and God’s plan while influencing others to get on board.
Deal with difficult personnel issues. Like any organization, churches have their fair share of personnel issues. The Church Leader Success System includes forms and processes to put in place to manage challenging situations, including those that could involve litigation. Of course, you also receive strategies to work with top performers and keep them engaged!
Skillfully handle conflicts among the people in your church. When your personnel and volunteers face conflict, it is important to know when to get involved and when not to, and – if you do get involved – how to do it effectively. This program shows you the keys to making those decisions and intervening for best results.
Recharge your spirit, soul, and inspiration. Being a church leader is extremely hard. It is no wonder that so many church leaders and pastors drop out every year. When you get The Church Leader Success System you will get the tools you need to recharge and renew your passion.
Use your creativity to generate tens of thousands of dollars in resources from places you never imagined up until now. While faith and prayer can bring all manner of resources our way, so can resourceful action. Case studies will show you examples of how to find money from creative sources, even when others have given up hope.
Open new doors. With this program, you will open up entirely new opportunities to express your faith, passion, and commitment. You will feel more satisfied about your work, and gain a renewed sense of possibility.
And, as you will read in a moment, you get 24/7 support directly from me, for a full year. That way you can customize the program to YOUR needs, and get your questions answered quickly…
Here is Exactly What You Receive:
INCLUDED — The Church Leader Institute’s Church Leadership Manual (150 pages). I invested a year of my time to compile everything I have learned over 30 years into a step-by-step, practical, and powerful system for pastors and other church leaders. You get tools, worksheets, case studies, and “how to” examples for everything you need to lead a successful, thriving church. It includes everything from vision to finances, personnel, strategy, ministries, leadership, conflict resolution, board development, communication skills, best practices, and tactics to engage your members and the community in meaningful ways. I guarantee you that there you won’t find a manual anywhere that is as comprehensive, and yet as simple and easy to follow, as this one.
INCLUDED — Elegant Leadership: Simple Strategies, Remarkable Results (209 pages). Thanks to a partnership with The Center for Executive Coaching, you receive a workbook that has been used by leaders worldwide. It will give you tools to focus your attention on what matters, engage employees and volunteers, manage the board, communicate powerfully, set direction, think more clearly, and build systems to leave a legacy of strong management in your church. Before now, the wisdom in this book has been confined to executives at the largest companies worldwide along with top-tier executive coaches, but my relationship with the author makes it possible to include this amazing book with your Church Leader Success System. It will change the way you think about your leadership and give you powerful insights and tools to be more effective in everything you do to lead your church.
INCLUDED — Financial tools spreadsheet. As soon as you sign up, you get a spreadsheet to help you immediately get control of your current financial situation, and set goals to improve. I have seen too many churches that do not track their numbers accurately, and this spreadsheet will guide you to greater control and visibility of your activities.
INCLUDED — 24/7 email support for a FULL SIX MONTHS. This program is like getting your own leadership coach on call, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Email the Church Leadership Institute any questions you have about your system or the situations you face, and an expert will get back to you within 24 hours. You cannot beat that level of service.
INCLUDED — Online Member Area. You receive your exclusive password to our online member area, where I post podcasts and new best practices for you to enjoy. You also can network with other members through our online social networking group. That way, you can get support and learn from others going through similar experiences.
INCLUDED — Certificate of Completion. Some of our members asked me to create a formal Certification process with this system. If you would like to be Certified as a Church Leader Institute “Certified Church Leader” all you have to do is go through the program materials and complete an essay-based test. I will personally work with you to complete this test and help you if you run into any problems. Once you pass, you receive a 8.5” X 11” Certificate from us, suitable for framing.
INCLUDED — Membership in the Church Leader Institute. Simply by signing up for this program, you become a member in the Church Leader Institute. That way, you continue to receive newsletters, information about our networking opportunities, and an invitation to our live conference for church leaders.
In Case You Are Worried That This Will Cost a Fortune…
Take comfort! The entire Church Leader Success System (including the Church Leader Success System Manual, Elegant Leadership, 24/7 email support, online member area, and membership in our Institute) costs only $237.50. You can even pay in 5 monthly installments of just $47.50.
I sincerely hope that you see this decision as a straightforward “no-brainer,” not something that you need to think about for very long.
What would it be worth to you to increase membership in your church by even 25%? To see a substantial cash surplus at the end of the year? To have your church known throughout the community for its ministries and innovation? To resolve conflicts that come up among volunteers…simply and almost effortlessly? To get more active participation from your members?
At some point very soon this price is going to go up significantly, to at least $500 or even $950. Participants so far have told me that this much higher price is justified based on the value they receive. Therefore, please order today, because I can’t guarantee that the current price will remain in effect much longer.
SORRY: NO FREE BONUS GIMMICKS TO PERSUADE YOU TO BUY
When I got advice about how to spread the word about this program via the Internet, everyone told me to offer FREE bonuses. Well, I’m not going to do that. This program is complete as it is. I can’t think of any additional materials to give you beyond the comprehensive system described already. Also, I find it inauthentic to have to insult your intelligence with gimmicks like that.
For instance, I could offer you a special report on how to lead a strategic planning session with your board….but that is already included. I could show you a case study of how to turnaround a church that is about to run out of cash…but that is already included. I could provide a bonus tool to design successful ministries…but that is also included. You get the point, right?
By now, either you see the value that The Church Leader Success System can offer you and your church, or you don’t. If you do, read on to learn how to order…
