About Will

Would you like more meaningful progress in your church?

I want you and your ministry to experience the benefits of stunning, God-given clarity. As a pastor turned vision coach, I’ve worked with an unprecedented variety of churches from growing mega-churches and missional communities, to mainline revitalization and church plants. I started several interconnected organizations under The Future Church Co. that help the church embody the movement that Jesus founded. My visionary planning tools, the Vision Frame and the Horizon Storyline, are used by thousands of churches every year through my calling to raise up other consultants and trainers. In 2015, I co-founded Younique to deliver gospel-centered life design through the church. In 2019, I founded Denominee to help networks and denominations reinvent how they bring value to the church. I currently provides clarity and innovation consulting directly to church teams through Pivvot. I've written six books, including Younique, Clarity Spiral, God Dreams, Innovating Discipleship, and Church Unique. I enjoy speaking about how to live a life of more meaningful progress. I live in Houston with my wife, Romy, and I have four children.
