The 5 Best Ways to Start or Strengthen Your Ministry
(Without Breaking the Bank!)
Written by Suzanne Burns
Starting a maternity home is a unique experience. Often, when the Lord calls us into a new journey, we feel overwhelmed and uncertain.
Fundraising... A house... Staff and volunteers... Wait, what's a 501c3 again?? Where will the girls come from? How can I help these young moms? Where would they go if I DON'T help?!?
You may even know “WHAT” to do- but what you need is someone to help you figure out “HOW”!
Fortunately for you, Suzanne has 10 years of experience, starting a home from the ground up with ZERO financial backing!
Trust Suzanne and her team to help you navigate everything from initial donor cultivation to deciding which housing and staffing models suit your ministry best. Our team has experience with sheparding homes, small homes, and large, multi-building organizations. We can help you navigate this path toward the ministry the Lord is birthing, to support and care for moms and children in your area.
As you move beyond startup phase, we can assist with volunteer and staff training, curriculum development, board training, and growing your own social enterprise. You can trust Suzanne and her team to guide you well, because they have experience not only with the ministry Suzanne founded in 2012 (opened 2014), the team has coached many other new homes to navigate this challenging journey into lasting growth and stability.
Our transformational coaching curriculum is designed to produce maximum results in minimal time. We support you in developing and refining the skills you need to succeed. We’ll help you confront challenges head-on and develop a plan of action to overcome what has hindered you in the past, while equipping you to train your team, also.
Our coaching contracts are designed in 6 month blocks, and, if you put in the effort you will find yourself at least one year ahead of where you are when you begin.
Each phase of startup, opening, and developing are different and your ministry needs are unique, also. This allows flexibility for your team to individualize a program designed just for you and your ministry. No cookie cutter, boxed program that is either too far ahead of you or going over things you've already finished, let Suzanne and her team of highly skilled mentors guide you along your journey and begin serving moms and children more effectively.

The idea of servant leadership is that the typical hierarchy, where employees are supposed to serve their bosses, is turned upside down.
Instead, leaders serve their people. Servant leaders not only improve performance, they improve people.
