restart church

Churches that need a fresh start can apply for our restart program.

This program is for churches that need a full reset of ministry. This process may include finding a restart pastor, partnering with a supporting church, receiving SBTC coaching, and/or applying for ministry funds. No matter what your church needs, we are here to help you navigate the process.


restart pastor

Is God calling you to pastor a church needing revitalization or a restart?

The Restart Pastor pathway is for anyone experiencing a call to shepherd a struggling church needing a restart. In this pathway, pastors can assess their gifts, gain access to funding, partner with a coach pastor, and find churches that fit their calling. Let us help prepare you for the work of revitalization and get you onto the mission field.
