Church Unique Certification

You love helping churches, but it’s time for a new toolbox.

Auxano provides strategist training opportunities using our proven church vision planning processes from the landmark book Church Unique.

The next Certification event will have FLEX options: the onsite event will take place August 23-26 in Nashville, TN, but you can also participate VIRTUALLY.

Are you passionate about helping churches discover where God is taking them? God Dreams Certification equips local church and denominational/network leaders with the training and time-tested tools to help congregations develop a visionary plan for the future.

Where many visionary training tools lack the functionality for merging long and short-range dreams for a local church, the Church Unique process contains tools and exercises that will define your disciple-making mission and model. It shows church leaders how to identify and unlock their congregation's individual identity as a tool for unleashing their one-of-a-kind potential.

During this four-day training experience led by Auxano Senior Lead Navigators, you will gain:

  • understanding of the principles and practices within the Church Unique toolbox
  • support within a community of other growth minded leaders serving the local church
  • confidence to help pastors develop a unique identity for their church
  • experience with a proven, helpful process that applies best practices in context

Every pastor wants to make disciples, but few have a visionary plan in place to actually do so. Church Unique Certification provides the training and tools to help strategic outsiders help pastors do more than just dream of a healthy, reproducing church. Certification helps you bring their dreams to reality.

While Auxano primarily trains non-profit leaders, a very limited number of for-profit consulting spots are available at each certification event. Contact our Lead Certification Navigator, Luke Francis, ( for more information on for-profit participation.
