Systems ThinkingBased on his book Burnout or Breakout, John Messer leads church leaders through two 3-hour sessions designed to help participants overcome the twin towers of stifled leaders and stuck churches.
XpeditionThe Luminex Group guides church leaders through a comprehensive, 12-month journey that leads to clarity of identity, pronounced momentum, and increasing vitality and mission attainment.
Transition MinistryEvery transition experience is unique, AND, experience really matters. Let our experienced transition team walk alongside your congregation so you can thrive, rather than just survive during a season of transition.
Succession PlanningSome leaders prefer not to think about the inevitability of succession. We believe it is far better to be intentional about this process. Let us help you design a plan that fits your organization.
"exciting and life giving"
"At Forest Grove Reformed Church, we have been blessed by Mike Gafa and the Luminex Group as we have been led through the Church Unique and God Dreams processes so we can gain that clarity as a ministry. Our team finds the processes exciting and life giving. We can't wait to see how God will use these processes through our church body!"

Lead Pastor, Forest Grove Reformed Church, Hudsonville MI
"Voyage Church hired Luminex Group to facilitate a long-term visioning retreat for us while we are in the midst of a pastoral transition. Luminex did an excellent job listening, asking insightful questions, reinforcing us for our existing strengths and acknowledging some of our concerns. At the conclusion of the retreat, Luminex offered to draft a long-term vision statement. The draft was outstanding. Truly impressive. Luminex Group has my wholehearted endorsement."
Diane K. Anderson,
Elder, Voyage Church, Kalamazoo MI
The entire 2-year Luminex Group process was very worthwhile, and I would highly recommend other churches and leaders engaging in it. The material and sessions are well done and pull together so many critical aspects of ministry. Having an external facilitator was so important – it removed biases, favoritism, clinging to current practices, etc., yet engaged the group and pulled us all together.
"I've been a part of Hopkins Community Reformed Church my entire life, and this is by far the most excited I have been to be a part of HCC's plan, and by far the most confident I have ever been that we are following His plan. I'm thankful God brought Luminex Group to us. I'm thankful they had us go through the God Dreams retreat."
