healthy growing churches

IBSA’s Health Team guides discoveries that empower breakthroughs in the lives of churches and pastors. Through a team of pathfinders, coaches, and consultants, we offer churches, associations, and their leaders opportunities for both long-term and short-term revitalization partnerships. 

How we can serve your church

Pastoral coaching

A coach can provide life-giving encouragement to help you lead your church toward health and growth. 

We can connect Illinois Baptist pastors with a trained coach. After a confidential assessment, the coach and pastor map out a plan together and meet regularly to pursue growth.

Contact Scott Foshie to learn more.


In Revelation 2-3, God calls every church to go to Jesus for an honest assessment that leads to breakthrough opportunities. IBSA offers assessments and consultations for any Illinois Baptist church.

These 360-degree assessments can help church leaders get a complete, accurate picture of their church’s Gospel impact, systems, and culture. Follow-up consultations can help churches take next steps.

Church renewal journey

The Church Renewal Journey is a layperson-led ministry that involves weekends designed to promote spiritual awakening, renewal, and revival in your church.

This free service, provided by a trained, lay-led mission team, can serve as a short-term revitalization process for your church.

ReFocus is the centerpiece of IBSA’s strategy to help churches and networks of all sizes and styles get healthy and maximize Gospel impact. Honest assessment and guided strategic planning are provided through ReFocus-certified pathfinders on IBSA’s Health Team.

Churches in ReFocus walk through six Biblical steps to develop and carry out a strategic plan for the church. They also receive encouragement, consultation, and support throughout the process.
