I’d like to extend a very special invitation to you today…
Will you bring a mission team to NYC next summer to work with The Journey Church?
Here are FIVE benefits of bringing a team to serve with The Journey this summer:
1- Your team will get to spend a week experiencing New York City while reaching thousands through mission projects with The Journey Church.
2- Your team will learn new ideas for reaching lost people that you’ll be able to take back and use in your community.
3- Your team will be challenged to reach out and this trip will bring a great deal of momentum to your church!
4- Your team can experience a full week of mission work for as little as $500 per person.
5- Your team will see some of New York’s greatest sights while making a lasting impact for God’s Kingdom.
Will you pray about sending a team of people on one of these dates?
- June 1 – June 6
- June 7 – June 14
- June 15 – June 21
- June 22 – June 28
- June 29 – July 5
- July 6 – July 12
- July 13 – July 19
- July 20 – July 26
Each week your team will share God’s love with thousands in a practical way through Servant Evangelism. About a third of the 1,300+ people we have baptized since 2002 trace the first steps of their spiritual journey to a servant evangelism interaction.
The cost is surprisingly affordable! Obviously a lot of factors impact the cost of a trip – but call us and we can help arrange your trip at a great cost. We can often structure mission trips for less than $500 per person! If you’ve been to NYC lately you know you barely even spend a night in a Times Square hotel for that price.
I want to challenge you gather the facts and take some time to pray about this special missions opportunity for your church.
If you’re interested in more information, please contact Laura Commins, our coordinating Journey staff member by phone at 212-830-7300, ext. 215 or by email at laura <at> journeymetro.com.
Thank you for prayerfully considering this opportunity to partner with God and The Journey Church to impact the greatest city in the world.
And… thanks in advance for sending a team to NYC next summer!
I wanted to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a Happy 4th of July!

Eight years ago, just as our young church in New York City was breaking through the 500 barrier, I received a call asking me to teach the Church Planting track at Rick Warren’s annual May conference.
I was humbled and excited… not sure if I could do it, but I said “yes.”
One week before the conference I received a call saying that the schedule had changed and instead of six hours, I would only have four hours to teach my sessions. With over 400 church planters registered, I simply didn’t know what to cut.
After much prayer, I decided not to cut anything. Instead, I would record the content I didn’t have time to teach live and share it with the participants. It’s been eight years now, but I recall that I recorded the following CD resources:
Am I Called to Be a Church Planter?
Funding Your Church Plant
Is My Husband’s Call My Call (with my wife Kelley)
The night before the conference (literally) I was up duplicating CDs on my computer and sticking labels by hand. It was crazy… but it worked! Thankfully, I was judged by the content on the CDs and not the design.
That conference came and went, but I started receiving calls and emails afterwards asking if those CDs were available for purchase. In fact, another large church planting conference that July wanted to offer the CDs for purchase at their conference.
From this humble start, we began making my resources available for purchase at various conferences, at my own speaking events and we put up a basic online store.
Why am I sharing this? Because it was this week eight years ago that all this happened and it was out of these “accidental” beginnings that Church Leader Insights was born.
Since 2004, I have had the incredible privilege of developing over 100 church growth resources. From that handful of church planters back in 2004, Church Leader Insights has grown to impact 90,000+ church leaders a year. And eight years later, I’m still humbled and excited!
Today, I give away those early church planting resources on our Web site. We give away over $3,000.00 in free resources to church planters around the world each week. Not to mention thousands of dollars in free e-books, international downloads, free books and audio resources.
One ministry leader recently estimated that we give away over $45,000.00 in free resources each month to 3,000+ church leaders around the globe. God is good!
And yes, we still offer resources for purchase… In fact, it’s because we offer certain resources for purchase that we are able to run our ministry and provide the free resources we offer (like the podcast, e-books, webinars, etc.).
Our goal is to always give those who purchase resources from us far more value than the dollars they invest. And it seems to be working – our ministry is currently expanding at the rate of 500 new church leaders a week.
I’m humbled and excited about what God has in store for the future and I wanted to share this story with you. So thank you for reading this far!
To celebrate our EIGHT YEAR ANNIVERSARY as a ministry, we have combed through our store and selected a dozen very powerful resources and made them available at a significant discount between now and this Friday, May 25… some of these resources have never been discounted before.
Check out THE EIGHT YEAR ANNIVERSARY SALE resources at a full FIFTY PERCENT OFF at:
Over a Dozen Never Before Discounted Items Available, but Hurry, ends THIS Friday, May 25!
As I’ve said several times already, I’m humbled and excited about the future. Thank you for being a part of the Church Leader Insights family. This ministry is truly a partnership between me and pastors like you.
God’s best to you,
P.S. After that first church planting event back in 2004, I was asked by several planters if I would be their “coach.” I never saw this as part of my ministry but gave it a shot with 12 guys in the summer of 2004. I loved it and God blessed it! Since 2004, I’ve coached over 1,000 church planters and senior pastors.
We have measured the effectiveness of my coaching process and learned that the average pastor sees a 30% growth in attendance and a 25% increase in the offerings (among many other improvements) within one year of completing my network.
My next SENIOR PASTORS COACHING NETWORK starts in August but there are some great Super Early Bird resources you get if you apply by July 30.
If you are a Senior Pastor or church planter, I strongly suggest you check out this link and prayerfully consider my network:
If you have any questions about this network or the anniversary sale (or if you prefer to order by phone), call us at 1-800-264-5129 – we are really nice to talk to – I promise!
As I have been praying for each of the churches that are a part of the CLI family, I truly believe this could be the best Easter ever – and I wish God’s best for you and your church tomorrow!
If you have a moment – please say a prayer for me and all of our services here at The Journey (in NYC, San Francisco and South Florida).
At The Journey, we sent out GIANT postcards for our Easter service this year. I am not sure how they could be missed! We also handed out Tickets as invite cards.
I’ll try to remember to let you know if it works out well…
Thank you for keeping up on the blog and for being a part of the Church Leader Insights family!
Nelson and the CLI Team (Scott, Tommy, David Kimberly, Brendan, Jimmy, Dave and Vinny)
