The Kingdom of God is made up of relationships that are authentic and strategic. This the key to a successful weekend of growth. If you are a pastor or church leader then you understand the tension and pressure of growth. Maybe you have heard things said in different conferences like, “It’s God’s church and He’ll bring the growth.” or “Healthy things grow.” Those are great one-liners for a inspiring message but aren’t the kind of statements that bring much peace or help us sleep at night. They may be true… or not, but regardless, as the pastor, you feel the weight of those statements. Ashley has been there and he can help. The Kingdom of God aligns people to help us and partner with us to reach our goals and fulfill our call. Ashley understands what it takes to help local churches grow. He’s been a church planter, lead pastor, and a support staff member and has unique insight in helping you understand how to navigate the challenges that come with seasons of plateau and seasons of growth.


A Weekend of Growth is two days of ministry with Ashley. According to your schedule, you pick a Saturday & Sunday or a Sunday & Monday and Ashley will not only speak during a Sunday service but spend a day with you and your team. This day will consist of training in the areas of marketing, finances, and leadership. Ashley’s goal is to add value to the unique culture your church is creating.
