Empowering and equipping churches leads to create lasting and transformational health.

Patrick Lencioni, in his book, The Advantage, notes that ‘organizational health trumps everything.’ Not only have we found his argument to be true in the church to a high degree, but we have also found it to be true for the leaders of the church as well. Outside of the Gospel, the most important factor in the effectiveness of a church is the health of the church. Outside of the work of God, health is the most important factor in the effectiveness of pastors, staff and ministry leaders. Health trumps.

Vision: 

Our vision is to be the impetus in the revitalization and rebirth of the global church through training, resourcing and intentional learning experiences for Christians, empowering them to serve their communities around the world. We will empower and equip churches and leaders to create lasting and transformational health. Our ministry includes three primary elements:

  • Church & Leader Health: To provide support, education and resources for pastors and ministry leaders to experience transformative health for maximum Kingdom impact. We also help churches experience greater organizational health through education, training, consulting and other support.
  • Church Revitalization: To provide networks, resources and training to assist churches and their leaders in revitalization. We also connect churches and ministry leaders to one another, helping churches find health, hope and life in order to experience revitalization.
  • International Ministry: To provide training for churches, pastors and leaders in areas around the world where poverty prevents them from receiving quality training. We also seek to create international internships, missions and learning experiences for churches and their leaders to learn from others around the globe.

“Look at the nations and watch— and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told.” Habakkuk 1:5

The whole gospel for the whole world.

Core Values:

  • Building the Global Christian Church
  • Revitalizing Local Churches
  • Equipping Pastors and Leaders
  • Creating lasting and transformational health

Re-Missioned, a division of One Heart Ministries, is a non-profit, faith-based organization serving the church throughout the United States and Canada. Our vision and passion is to help churches navigate through times of growth and change in a healthy and revitalizing way. We are excited to help churches “re-mission” themselves by moving from a membership focus to a discipleship focus.

In 1Cor. 9:22, the Apostle Paul expressed what God intended the heart of the Church to be: “When I am with those who are oppressed, I share their oppression so that I might bring them to Christ. Yes, I try to find common ground with everyone so that I might bring them to Christ.” (NLT)

Our mission is to provide vibrant assistance through a combination of individualized services tailored to meet each unique situation. Our services include:

  • Church assessments
  • Development and implementation of a vision
  • Staff evaluation and needs assessment
  • Developing a team leadership approach
  • Effecting healthy change
    • Understanding how change works in a church setting
    • Managing change so change doesn’t manage you
  • Understanding conflict and responding in a life-giving way
