Who We Are
Ministry Architects is a team of almost 90 pastors, teachers, executives, youth workers, children’s pastors, writers, and professors. We’re fanatical about results and helping ministries find clear direction and sustained momentum backed up by properly aligned resources.
Ministry Architects has partnered with nearly 1000 ministries from 33 different denominations. Starting out as a consulting group exclusively focused on youth ministry, Ministry Architects now works with children’s ministries, young adult ministries, church- wide initiatives, nonprofits, and schools. We have worked with churches as small as 25 and as large as 10,000.
Our Core Values:
We ground our work in a fundamental trust in and alignment with the God of the universe, revealed uniquely in Jesus Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit.
We take God seriously enough to prevent us from taking ourselves too seriously, making laughter, celebration, and joy normative expressions of our work.
We help churches get unstuck by bringing a spirit of non-anxiousness to churches mired in anxiousness, conflict and frustration.
We build lifelong connections with our clients and connect them to the people and resources they need to accomplish their missions.
We know we are never far from our own irrelevance, and so we love to think “outside the box,” and to help our clients prepare for effective ministry decades from now.
We enjoy giving our clients more than they expect from us, providing them with the tools they need before they can know what tools to ask for.
We don’t simply dispense advice, but seek to be load-bearing guarantors of intentional progress.
We care deeply about our clients, their traditions and their dreams, seeking never to impose a one-size-fits-all model or theology on the ministries we serve.
We seek to be an organization built in a way that the vulnerable, oppressed, and marginalized are increasingly served by members of our team.
We seek to bring a spirit of resilience to each ministry’s journey toward achieving its mission, fully aware that we will often confront obstacles and roadblocks for which we do not yet have an answer.
