Possible Church - a name inspired by two significant sources two decades ago. As a church growth consultant, I utilized three levels of church potential: Survivable, Probable, and Possible. Only a select few churches achieved that "Possible" outcome, but the prospect alone sparked immense excitement in the mind and spirit.
The second source behind our name stems from a marketing book I refer to regularly. Its pages define a "possible service" as not merely fulfilling what the client wants, but delivering what they truly need, even if they are unaware of its existence.
At Possible Church, we strive to become your ministry's dedicated partner, surpassing your desires and fulfilling your needs.
Meet Steve Roberts, the self-proclaimed church "junkie" with an insatiable passion for church health and growth. Hailing from rural Texas, just north of Dallas, Steve's fascination with churches began at a young age, as he grew up attending small congregations of 30 to 150 members.
During his college years, Steve's dedication to churches only intensified. Pursuing degrees in Theology, Business, and Biblical language, he ventured into the world of various denominations, attending 60 different churches from many denominations along the way. Little did he know that this vast experience would shape his future in unimaginable ways.
In the nearly three decades since his graduation, Steve's career has taken him on a diverse path. At times, he has felt like a ministry vagabond, moving from one role to another every few years. Yet, looking back, he now sees that it was more like military assignments that were all part of God's plan. Over the span of his career, Steve's wife, Angie, has served as a Children's Pastor for 20 years, adding another layer of complexity to their journey. They raised three kids, who are now in college.
His various roles include: Youth Pastor, Care Pastor, Business Administrator, Associate Pastor, Entrepreneur, Executive Pastor, Family Life Pastor, Church Consultant, Construction Consultant, Fundraising Consultant, Children's Pastor, and back to Executive Pastor. Through this vast experience, Steve has discovered that, despite denominational differences, there is far more that unites churches than divides them.
During his 25 years of ministry at local churches, Steve witnessed remarkable growth. Attendance soared by a combined 2600, and over 7,000 individuals accepted Christ. However, he humbly credits the leadership of the Lead Pastors and staff for these achievements, acknowledging that it was God's work, not his own. What Steve does take pride in is his ability to pay attention, constantly learn, and adapt as he served.
When asked about his strengths, those who have worked with Steve consistently offer similar praise:
- He effortlessly makes things easier
- Operations run smoother under his guidance
- His foresight helps to prepare for future challenges
- He is an exceptional planner, initiator, and follow-through master
Now, Steve embarks on his latest endeavor - Possible Church. He and his wife have transitioned from vocational ministry to support smaller churches in achieving the level of health and success they have always dreamed of.
While Steve and Angie Roberts lead the way as our full-time members, our team extends far beyond them. We are proud to have a diverse group of experienced and exceptionally talented professionals to lean on. From seasoned pastors with over 50 years of experience to younger pastors who bring fresh perspectives, university professors, MBA holders, professional writers, and business leaders, we are a powerhouse of expertise. Together, we collaborate to develop an innovative process and program that will move your church forward on the path to health and success.
