ZOE CHURCHES

ZOE CHURCHES

Europe is the arguably the most influential place in the world.  With a population four times larger than the size of the USA, the top leading global academic institutions and hot bed for global politics, Europe is a critical and strategic location for the Church to thrive and grow.

It’s estimated only 1% of Europeans are evangelical Christians and Church grow has been in decline for several years.  There is a need to invest in Europe today.

Currently there are three Zoe Churches across Europe in Warsaw, Poland, Sofia, Bulgaria and Thessaloniki, Greece.  These locations are some of the most unreached places for the Gospel in Europe and we are so excited to be building healthy churches in these cities that will influence the city and their surrounding community.  Matt serves as pastor and coach to these pastors as part of the Project Europe movement.


PROJECT EUROPE

Europe is the arguably the most influential place in the world. With a population four times larger than the size of the USA, the top leading global academic institutions and hot bed for global politics, Europe is a critical and strategic location for the Church to thrive and grow.

It is estimated that only 1% of Europeans are evangelical Christians and Church grow has been in decline for several years. There is a need to invest in Europe today.

Matt serves as Executive Director for this initiative. Through this initiative, we are strengthening local churches with the goal of building leaders, reaching the lost, and impacting societies. It is our heart to grow the influence we have already seen across our current European church relationships, and continue to build on what is a strong foundation.

Over the last year, we were involved in 15 countries: Albania, Bulgaria, Croatia, England, Germany, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, Ukraine, Wales. We provided leadership training to 89 churches and over 479 leaders and pastors. Of the churches we brought together for the gatherings, 44% of the churches we met with for strategic planning and coaching. Our heart is to resource and relationally connect with churches wanting community, insight, and ways to build and grow their church.


ROOTED

Rooted is a discipleship model that was developed by Mavuno Church, Nairobi, Kenya and Mariners Church, Irvine, California.  Rooted is designed to help people connect with God, your church and their purpose. Currently, over 100 churches across the globe have implanted this discipleship model and seeing incredible changes in their church.  Matt serves as a coach and consultant for churches in the network or wanting to implement Rooted in their church.  


LEADERSHIP COACHING

Let’s be honest: Growing a church hard work. Most people don’t understand the different roles a pastor has to play each week: counselor, teacher, friend, manager, administrator, husband, father, creative director, worship leader, CEO and marketing genius.

In many cases, pastors have to work a second job just to make ends meet.  It is a calling with no reprieve and often times leaves a pastor feeling isolated, hurt, doubting and frustrated.  Who do you talk to that is safe and confidential? 

We can help. A monthly coaching call is customized for you. Whether it is personal coaching through difficult situations, church growth, building a leadership team, implementing the three-step process, or your own personal development plan, we can help. Our goal is for you to be the leader God has called you to be. 


WAYFARE LABS

The five month Launch program is intensive, where founders are guided through six major categories of startup development–strategy, business model, communication, financials, leadership, and product/program–as they launch or relaunch their ideas. This program offers dedicated weekly coaching, founders dinners, and workshops with access to a robust advisor network and Wayfare workspace–all delivered in a community of support with other startup founders.

The Growth program–offered to those who finish our Launch program and other select startups–provides a customized package of Wayfare membership, coaching, workshops, resources, tools, networks, and emotional support to build their organization into scalability.

Matt serves as an Advisor for the Wayfare Labs community and teaches a section program to the founders going through the program.
