Here is just a portion of the many thankful words we receive for our services:

“Our attendance is going back up and our finances are the best they have ever been. We have been slowly presenting our Mission, Core Values, and Vision to the people. Their response has been great thus far. We are working on a new church logo and new publications to communicate our mission and vision. Things are exciting.”
– Russell Johnson, Senior Pastor

“Join with us in praise… Sunday sanctuary worship attendance is up an average of over 100 people (approx 15%) in the last 10 weeks versus the same weeks last year!
– Rick Frazier, Boston, MA

“There have been many significant changes in our lives here in Delaware… I am happy to let you know that the work you did among us so many years ago is still bearing fruit. Your works (writings) were integral in the development of the core values, mission, and vision for our new church… Please know that I continue to sing the praises of the work you did with us previously, and recommend your books to many.”
– Meredith Griffin, Wilmington, DE

“People have been joining every week. We have been having a list of new visitors each week. New ministries and outreach methods have begun. All in all, the church is moving forward…”
– David Becker, Granbury, TX

The process was very challenging, but incredibly rewarding for our church.  We are greatly excited about how God can lead us into greater ways of fulfilling His mission for us and dedicated to doing what we need to accomplish that.
– Keith Maloney, Greenville Oaks

“The Malphurs Group is uniquely gifted in being able to combine the theological, philosophical, theoretical, and practical elements of ministry. They are cutting-edge thinkers who are constantly assessing the effectiveness of current models. They are one of the best trainers and consultants for Christian leaders today!”
– Glenn Smith, Executive Director, New Church Initiatives

“Aubrey Malphurs delivers to the local church perhaps one of the best models for implementing strategic planning that I have seen. His heart for developing leadership skills in the lives of our church leaders is evident.”
– Mark Peterkins, Director, Ottawa Christian Leadership Centre

“… (The Malphurs Group) takes mission, vision, and values of various organizations and shows how they are of immense importance for preventing conflict and setting goals. They take advantage of the information in both business and religion to help leaders think about their goals and then follow through on them.”

Endorsement of Books

“No other book (Developing a Vision for Ministry in the 21st Century) has motivated me to plan ahead and strategize more than this one. Both in personal life and in my ministry, this book points me to accomplishing what needs to be done. This book is invaluable and is worth ten times the money.”
– Clint Hale, Lytle, TX

Advanced Strategic Planning… (is) loaded with detailed help for an area many of us fear or ignore. I give Malphurs… two thumbs up!”
– Anthony Laird, Pastor & Writer

“Malphurs’ book, Maximizing Your Effectiveness, has been one of the greatest books I’ve read as a seminary student thus far. A must read for those beginning in ministry or those who have been struggling with finding your proper place in ministry!”
– Dan Doty, Springfield, MO

“Malphurs is the best writer of practical planning and the development of a church’s strategy that I have seen to date. I use this book (Ministry Nuts & Bolts) when I consult with pastors and elders around the world.”
– Gary R. Sweeten, Cincinnati, Ohio

Values-Driven Ministry does an excellent job of taking the reader back to see what drives a God-given vision – it is our biblically based values. This book has been an oasis for this thirsty pastor! I would have liked to have been able to study it in a seminary leadership class.”
– L.B. Barber, Brunswick, GA
