Who We Are

Turning innovative ministry ideas into reality.

Ministry Incubators offers coaching, consulting and custom events to get your idea clarified, launched and sustainable.


Your idea matters.

There are plenty of smart, innovative leaders in the church with the God-given vision and motivation to transform their communities. And most of them never get to.

Maybe you’re one of those leaders, and you’re ready to quit.

Maybe you know there is a more faithful and more fruitful way of impacting your community and your world with the gospel, but you have no idea how to get started.

Maybe you’re thinking to yourself, shouldn’t this be easier?

It can be.


Let's make it real.

It can be better.

With Ministry Incubators, you’ll find community.
You’ll learn the practical steps to pulling off your idea.
You’ll get expert advice from people who have been there.

And you’ll be launching your ministry project with the confidence that sustainable success isn’t just possible, but predictable.

The Church needs innovation

The church needs new ideas for a hurting world, but church leaders struggle with what to do with the people that have them. At Ministry Incubators, we conspire with would-be innovators to get their wild, faith-inspired projects clarified, launched, and sustainable, so that communities can be changed for the better.

Here's the deal

At Ministry Incubators, we know that your faith leads you to want to create real change in your community, and that you have ideas on how to do it. But in order to pull those ideas off, you need people on your side and guidance on how to make them happen.

The problem is, churches often aren’t equipped to foster innovation, which makes you feel like you’re always swimming upstream. We believe the church needs innovative ideas, and innovators themselves, in order to thrive in the 21st century. We understand the path to innovation can be lonely and feel uncertain, which is why we bring proven solutions and the guidance of decades of expertise to walk with our clients toward sustainable success.

Here’s how we do it:

1. We learn about your project, vision and community.

2. We partner with you through coaching, consulting, on-site events and more to execute a plan to get your idea clarified, launched, and sustainable.

3. We help you get the thing off the ground.

So, contact us today. And in the meantime, sign up for our newsletter to be inspired by innovation happening all over the country. Its time to stop day-dreaming about what the church could be and start changing your community for the better.

Let's get started.

Let's hop on a quick (free) call and talk about you, your idea, and how we can join the party.
