EXCELLENCE IN CHURCH BUSINESS

We Love Churches!

It’s true. We have a deep passion for churches, their leaders, and the work that they’re doing to reach our world with the gospel of Christ.

But, if we’re being honest – there’s a special place in our heart for Black Churches.

It’s partially because we know them – well. We know their culture, we speak their language, and we understand the unique challenges that happen every day within their ministries. But the other part it is because we believe in their ability to transform and revitalize the communities that so many of them serve. We believe that healthy churches become healthy communities.

We were tired of seeing great churches, struggle to impact the communities they were called to serve.

We wanted to create a learning environment where a church, regardless of its size, could get the information that it needed to impact lives spiritually, AND as a well-managed nonprofit organization.

We wanted a community where church leaders, staff, and ministry volunteers could go for up to date, step-by-step training, that was easy to understand and relevant.

And we wanted to do it in a way that was cost effective for the ministry, and added value that far exceeded the cost of membership.

And with our Academy, we feel we’ve done just that.

Churbiz Academy is your essential resource for training, strategy, and support; helping your ministry stay BOTH spiritually and operationally healthy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers
Great question – and it’s our ability to SIMPLIFY complex information and topics. We understand that churches are oftentimes made up of willing volunteers – many whom are unfamiliar with nonprofit management and operational systems necessary for growing an organization. We start from the beginning, and ensure that each training lesson is both educational and fun for our learners.
That’s easy. Church + Business = CHURBIZ Our name reflects what we deeply believe: that every church, supported by effective business systems and management, has the power to change communities and transform lives. We love churches. We love business. And we believe in both.
We’re a growing community that has been designed specifically for those serving within their local church. Whether you’re a new pastor, first-time church board member, volunteer financial secretary, production assistant – and everything in between, Churbiz is for you!
We get it, sometimes things just don’t fit – and we never want you feeling like you’re “stuck”. That’s why we don’t do contracts, no commitments, just us working hard every month to prove that we’re worth a line on your church budget. So if you’re unhappy and want to cancel your membership – simply login to account and cancel your account at any time. In fact, here’s a cancellation video that shows you how to do it. If you have other questions around our cancellation policy, feel free to take a look at our full TOC.
Membership has its privileges – so unfortunately, no. Once you cancel your membership you will no longer have access to the courses, training material, and groups/forums that go along with membership.
If you select our monthly plan, the credit/debit card that you used to setup your account will be billed each subsequent month until you cancel your membership. Churches taking advantage of the savings on our annual plan are able to pay with either a credit/debit card or church check. To make a payment using a church check, you’ll need to mail your payment, along with your contact information, to our office.

Absolutely! But remember, our courses are taught by various subject matter experts – and while we work to preserve the quality of each lesson – every training course will be slightly different. Not to mention, we’re constantly working to improve our content and delivery! But enough stalling – here’s a quick example video of one of our lessons.

We’re glad you asked. You see, we never intended to do this alone. We’re constantly looking for great trainers to help educate and support our community. Take a look at how you or someone you know can become a Churbus Trainer.

We’re putting money – where our mouth is!

It’s easy to say that we love churches and that we want to see succeed at revitalizing disadvantaged communities – but we’ll show you just how serious we are. Every year we invite Academy Members to submit proposals for potential funding of community based projects and programs created by their church or faith-based organization.

Because Churbiz Academy Members are engaged and active learning members, we know that they’re getting the training and information necessary to operate community programs and responsibly handle external funding. This makes them great partners for revitalizing and empowering disadvantaged neighborhoods.

For every dollar that we received, 10% goes towards funding our MicroGrants. So in essence, as an Academy member, part of your monthly membership fee goes back to supporting your congregation, as well as thousands of other congregations around the country.

Receiving a MicroGrant also helps your church get even more external funding! That’s because grantors like to see that an organization has [also] received funding from other sources. It gives the grantor confidence that someone else believes in the program, has vetted the organization, and has contributed financially to it. Academy members get the practice and advantage of going through the grant process with an organization that’s designed to help them succeed.

10% of All Churbiz Income Goes to Fund Our MicroGrants
