We'll talk about you and what responding to Jesus in the context of your audience looks like. We'll define the initial gist of your vision and begin to walk around with it.
Whatever you're doing with your days is, by definition, what you're doing with your life. If you can't explain to yourself, your people, or your customers why they should give a portion of your life to your brand, you and your brand are inherently underperforming.
Worse, you've got a stewardship issue with the God who owns it all.
Some of these clients were served via other very good agencies. Whatever you're doing with your days is, by definition, what you're doing with your life. If you can't explain to yourself, your employees, or your customers why giving a portion of one's life to your brand is a good idea, your brand is inherently underperforming, and so are you. We can help you fix that for your company or any other team you're leading, with or without the explicit theology of identity we'll share with you.
Your brand is not your logo, your value proposition, your products, your HR policies, or anything owned by any department. Your brand is the spirit and identity by which your organization navigates. You have a brand, and it feeds everything. The right brand adds life. Default brands extract it.
Great at the last mile. Horrible at choosing the right road. The brand feeds sales a value focus.
Great at hooks and corporate life hacks. Not built for paradigms. Brand feeds marketing direction.
Great at pumping out stories. Not ideal for deciding where to dig the well. Brand feeds PR a refrain.
Stuck between playing defense and often unaccountable feel-good efforts, the brand feeds HR a path to love well.
Great at refining the drill bit, but often forgets people buy holes. Brand feeds product context and meaning.
Great at measuring what exists and what is possible, but does best when the brand clarifies which wins are right.
Carries so much pressure on "what" and "how" that the spiritual gates are often left open unless the brand helps answer "why" and "for whom."
We can discuss this further in person – we have presentations and talking points that will excite you until they put you to sleep – but brand comes down to identity and vision related to identity.
You don't need your people to be Christians. What you need is an authority structure and persistent vision that ensures all people are treated as though they bear the image of God. He takes care of things from there.
Consider the hours that go into a career. Call it 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year, for 40 years. That's 80,000 hours in an environment that elicits deep investment and draws out all sorts of heart needs from a vastly wider audience.
Compare that to hours at church, if a person goes at all. Call it 3 hours per week, 50 weeks per year, for 40 years. That's a generous 6,000 hours, spent with the choir, being thanked for attending, often focused on Bible trivia.
You don't even have to be great at it, and you don't have to be in a hurry. The competitive bar is super low. All you have to do is create a setting that cares, point to meaning, and you'll create more impact and draw more investment than anything else in your people's lives.
That's a great thing, so long as you're pointing that investment to God.
You are the centurion, the one going humbly to Jesus on behalf of people you lead. Our job is to help you in your response. We align with you, and then we focus on delivering your vision with and to your team so you can stay focused on operations.
We work from a deliverable-based rate sheet, with a minimum engagement fee. While we don't do a la carte projects, we recognize you already have staff and other partners, and we have plenty of ways to integrate with them.
We can go faster, but we typically spend the first two to three months with you, interviews, and defining your brand and its vision. Deployment varies based on the plan and your team, but that's typically a six-month run. We focus on seeing how things are working for a few months after that, and then at about the one-year mark, we review options for amplification or how your vision and brand are best served. We absolutely believe there is a point where having an outside voice because a net negative for your team, which in spiritual terms is akin to idolatry (bad things happen to idols), so we get out as soon as we can, dropping to a focus on you and either core leadership or basic friendships.

Our calling is to help revitalize the rustiest weapon in the Kingdom: testimony. Testimony is not a person's before and after story or a one-time experience presented as a sales pitch for church. It's supposed to be you, God, and His will in your life combined as Presence. We focus on centurions because we see the price centurions already pay for their obedience, and that's where we believe we're called to serve. We don't know you yet, but we're already praying for you.
Call. Let's see what happens.
