Long-term, Full-scale Culture Change

Enlist our consulting team for premier customized support. 

Today’s churches are shrinking and aging, and young people are walking away. It is clear that many churches are calibrated for a world that does not exist. Our team at the Fuller Youth Institute trains and prepares you to lead your congregation toward change that breathes life into your whole church. With our groundbreaking research on churches that are relevant and thriving, we bring these insights to you. Those who have worked with us say we offer the best training they’ve ever received. 

How we can help

      

Time on Site
We will spend time on site at your church to help you gain maximum insight from your Growing Young Assessment results. Through interviews, focus groups, and guided reflections, your team will gain clarity about exactly where your church is now and why it is stalled and/or making progress.

      

Core Insights
We will help your team and overall congregation master the core principles of Growing Young, including discerning and casting a compelling vision for your congregation's future.

      

Create a Plan
We will guide your church in creating a plan to implement the changes necessary to grow young. Through additional visits and/or regular phone calls, your consultant will assist you in crafting innovative experiments, maintaining disciplined attention, and anchoring changes in your congregation's culture for the long haul.

What are people saying about our Church Consulting?

The consulting work done by FYI takes the invaluable research from their book, Growing Young, and puts it into action. Jake's approach was structured, the work we did was inspiring, and the coaching provided was thoughtful and motivating! Through God's Grace and FYI's help, we hope to have a flourishing church for all generations for many years to come!

Dillon Ferguson

Discipleship Pastor, First Presbyterian Church, Midland, TX

The Fuller Youth Institute, specifically with consultants Jake Mulder and Caleb Roose, were and have been those fellow sojourners on our path towards the future. Jake and Caleb, with the FYI team, have been phenomenal in their hands-on approach, their analysis of our congregational and community demographics, in listening to the hopes and dreams of staff and leadership, in telling us the truth when we needed to hear it, and in being fully accessible. They bring a Christlike love and a refreshing curiosity that is eager to learn and discover with us what God is doing in our midst.
