REVIVE is a ministry of Journey Mennonite Church that offers coaching to pastors and leaders who are pursuing church transformation and leadership development
Leadership is lonely and difficult at times. We wonder if anyone understands our unique challenges, and would be safe to talk with. There’s nothing like having a circle of like-minded leaders who know they are not alone, and want to grow in their leadership skills. This is why we formed Revive: “Coaching Church leaders”.  This is a tremendous opportunity for you to connect with other leaders, develop your gifts, and build a sustainable and joy-filled ministry for the present and the future. 
REVIVE can support your congregation by:
  1. Consulting on your church’s mission, vision and goals.
  2. Mentoring pastors and leaders toward missional transformation.
  3. Coaching ministry teams and high-capacity leaders toward greater effectiveness.
About US: 
Journey Mennonite Church is a multi-site congregation passionately following Jesus and engaging the communities where we live, work and play. The Holy Spirit has led (and continues to lead) us through radical transformation. Using the tools we’ve learned over the last two decades, REVIVE offers coaching to pastors and leaders who are pursuing church revitalization. Learn from our story, then carve your own path. Where is God calling you?
