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!"
Rev. Daniel DeVries,
Lead Pastor, Forest Grove Reformed Church, Hudsonville MI
"Voyage Church hired Mike to facilitate a long-term visioning retreat for us while we are in the midst of a pastoral transition. Mike met with several members of our church leadership and those who have been involved in our God Dream’s retreats. Mike 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, Mike offered to draft a long-term vision statement for us based on what he heard. The draft he provided was outstanding. Truly impressive. Mike has my wholehearted endorsement."
