Membership With GHC

Considering Membership with GHC?

GHC is committed to helping churches, pastors and denominations become and stay healthy. We believe health goes hand-in-hand with growth. We encourage and assist pastors and leaders as they purposefully plan their personal and leadership growth. We also encourage and assist churches and denominations through assessment, development, coaching (personal, congregational and financial), strategic planning, capital campaigns/ministry expansion and church planting.

Why Partner?

We were not meant to be alone in ministry. We understand that there is strength in numbers. In fact many of us encourage others in our churches to join groups (women's / men's / life groups / etc); likewise who can better understand what pastors are facing than other pastors?

Banding together with other pastors and churches, united in the Spirit of Christ, not only creates a safe haven for accountability, leadership growth and personal growth but it also reminds us we are not alone, that we are our brothers keeper and they are ours.

We give congregational leaders the opportunity to learn from church leaders representing an array of leadership styles and church strategies. Whether it's personal growth, church growth and development, or GHC Clusters, capital campaigns, pastoral coaching or placement we're committed to helping you take your church to the next level!
