Session 1: Church Systems Overview

After gaining a more thorough understanding of each of the Eight Systems of a Healthy Church, you can immediately start evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of your church. You’ll be able to develop a clear and easy-to-implement plan for the rest of your coaching experience.

Then each month you will unlock a new in-depth session with Nelson covering a different church system. Some systems are even split into two parts. Some of the sessions you will cover in your online membership:



Nelson will give you immediate next steps that you can take this Sunday to reach and keep more first-time guests in your church. These simple “Big Rocks” will have you seeing immediate results!


Stewardship is a big system! In this first part of two, Nelson will give you the basic steps that you can take to implement a healthy Stewardship System that is focused on discipleship as the ultimate goal.


You will learn how to create “Big Days” in your church and how to maximize your preaching through a One-Year Preaching Calendar. This session will immediately relieve your stress of having to plan and prepare from week to week.


In this second session on Evangelism, Nelson will help you create a culture of Evangelism in your church. If your church has been stagnant for years or is experiencing explosive growth, Nelson will give you the tools necessary to raise the evangelistic temperature of your church.


100% participation – that is the goal of this session. What can you do in your Sunday School or Small Groups Ministry that will help you get 100% participation? In this session, Nelson will share how The Journey (and numerous coaching alumni) consistently exceed that goal, regardless of denomination, location or background!


Regardless of your music, creative elements or traditions, Nelson will give you “Seven Ways to Improve the Quality of Your Worship Service.” PLUS, he’ll share four evaluation questions you can ask yourself and/or your staff every Monday so that you can improve Sunday after Sunday.


In this advanced session on Stewardship, Nelson will give you time-tested tools that have consistently helped coaching alumni increase their offerings by 27%! Plus, you’ll learn five stewardship decisions every pastor should make to lead an effective Stewardship System.


Nelson will give you an effective plan to help increase the number of volunteers in your church. You’ll also learn how to “Create a First Serve” opportunity that will motivate your people to serve.


Staffing can bring the greatest joys and the greatest headaches as you lead your church. Nelson will guide you on avoiding the multiple landmines in leading your staff. Even if you don’t have any staff, these are practical steps that you can take to lead your key leaders.


You will learn how to create a simple and practical personal growth plan that will help you enjoy your days off, take consistent vacations (where you’re not distracted by ministry) and be more effective each day in your ministry.


In this session, Nelson will help you create a church strategy utilizing all the tools that you’ve accumulated during the network. You’ll evaluate the health of each system in your church and what you can do to take them to the next level.
