A small team of pastors learning together, overcoming roadblocks and putting plans into action.
Implement is a group coaching program for pastors leading The Vine Project in their ministry. It includes eight face-to-face coaching days, support from a small team of peers, extensive online resources and more. Implement equips pastors with the knowledge and skills needed to lead disciple-making culture change in their context.
Implement Coaching is unique. The pastors in your Implement team are working through the same process, at the same time, with the same end goal. Culture change is challenging and nuanced. Like-minded leaders strengthen each other as they lead the change.
Pastors will be part of a local Implement team of six (approximately). The coaching days will be warm and collegial. But they won’t function as aimless talkfests or group therapy sessions. Implement coaching blends a structured and accountable process with a supportive learning community. The coaches draw on their ministry coaching experience and the knowledge gained from hundreds of TVP teams and churches around the world.

“Having a Jesus-centred, Bible-loving, discipleship-focused coach has been one of the most significant ways God has answered our prayers and has been crucial in turning good intentions into a sharper vision, a detailed action plan and a changing church culture. Regular coaching, prayer and follow through has provided a real life-line.”
– Leigh Roberts, Senior Pastor, Bulli Anglican Church, Australia

Coaching Days for the Implement Program commence in November, 2017 in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, and Brisbane. These days will help you prepare to launch your own Vine Project team starting early 2018.
We are hoping to launch in Adelaide and Christchurch, New Zealand, during 2018.

Evaluating Sunday as your Flagship
The Sunday church gathering is perhaps the most significant trellis shaping your church culture. If you want a deeply rooted disciple-making culture every component of your formal gathering must reinforce the culture you are seeking. Getting this right is a crucial component of church-wide culture change.
Through the lens of the 4P’s and 4E’s (discussed in The Vine Project), our coaches conduct a wide ranging in person and/or video evaluation of your formal gathering. We ask the question – ‘How is each element reinforcing or undermining disciple-making culture change’? You will receive a report with recommendations, plus a coaching session for the pastor (with the staff team if preferred).
