7 Online Church Leadership Training Resources To Help You Take Your Church Forward

preaching-rocket-review-preach-better-sermonsIn partnership with The Rocket Company, GrowChurch has made online church leadership training resources available to hundreds of pastors.

I’ve read story after story in comments and emails of church leaders raving about the latest thing they’ve learned and how sharing their results after they’ve applied the core coaching in their local church setting.

The Rocket Company’s vision statement is simply: We help churches succeed.

How do they help churches succeed?

By working with some of the best pastors and preachers of our time to create affordable, practical online church leadership training resources to equip church leaders like you and me, with everything they need to take their churches forward.

Because I know you love lists, I’ll get right to the point.

1. Launchpad

launchpad church leadership trainingLaunchpad is at the top of this list because it’s by far the most popular. A monthly membership program with bite-sized coaching, done for you resources and real church examples to help you lead a healthy and growing church.

2. Preaching Rocket

Most church pastors preaching-rocket-reviewfeel pressure to preach profound sermons week in, week out.

Some preachers try to shortcut the sermon prep process by downloading sermons and just changing a few things.

I believe you were made for more.

Jeff Henderson created this 12-month coaching program to help you preach better sermons.

A Thom Rainer study discovered 90% of people choose a church based on the preacher or the sermon, so if you get better at this, everything improves. Preaching is the most important (or at least the most visible thing) you do.

I’ve been a Preaching Rocket member for two years and in my opinion, it’s one of the best online church leadership resource out there.

3. Volunteer Rocket

I’ve heard a lot from pastors who have built service teams as a result of this leadership training. I’m absolutely confident it can help your church too.

4. Giving Rocket

    • I visited the Philippines just last year. Spent a lot of time in the compounds and slums and even had the opportunity to preach at a church in Valenzuela (Hope I’ve spelt that right!) I loved it.

      I can wholeheartedly stand by any of my recommendations here. I work hard not just to give tips and ideas on church growth, but to really equip church leaders with the tools and training and resources they need to reach more people and increase their influence.

      May God bless you as you fulfill the Great Commission right there where you are! God is with you!
