“Greg Atkinson is smart, detailed, thorough, and saw things that we would never notice. His feedback was invaluable and we are making several strategic changes as a result of his visit. We will use him again. I encourage you to do the same. In a word – he’s the best.”
– Ray Johnston, Senior Pastor, Bayside Church, Sacramento, CA (Fastest-growing church in the US)
Greg’s evaluation of your church helps you dig into where you can significantly improve a guest’s first-time experience. He makes you think and leaves no rock unturned. Probably the best money we’ve spent all year long.”
– Ashley Wooldridge, Senior Pastor, Christ’s Church of the Valley, Peoria, AZ (2nd Largest Church in the US)
“Greg’s ministry provided a really valuable perspective on our weekend experiences as a church. His heart for the Kingdom and passion to see every church reach its maximum potential is a gift to those of us who care deeply about seeing our churches thrive.“
-John Ortberg, Senior Pastor, Menlo Church
Do any of these scenarios describe your church?

There are critical elements of your guest experience that are broken or missing.
Guests are slipping through the cracks and out the back door of your church.
If the answer is “yes” to any of these…
You need a visit from a church secret shopper!
