REACH Consulting has one purpose: to help church reach their maximum potential through leadership, people and structure. Why do we do this? Because we believe the Church is the hope of the world. But the Church is run by people and people sometimes need help. We all need a little guidance, some outside perspectives, a new strategy, a new leadership direction. REACH Consulting can help with that.
Who are we? We started out as business professionals but at some point in our varied lives, God called us into the Church to lead as pastors or church executives. We have worked with all sizes of churches, all types of denominations, and served in various capacities ranging from volunteers to executive team leaders to elder board members.
Our Founders are Nathan Freeland and Stephanie German. Two individuals who have a passion for serving the Church, it’s leaders, and a good cup of coffee. Both have degrees in Leadership, but bring different skills and perspectives to each unique situation.
