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)
