“Greg’s ministry provided a really valuable perspective on our weekend experiences as a church.  His heart for the Kingdom and passion to see every church reach its maximum potential is a gift to those of us who care deeply about seeing our churches thrive.” – John Ortberg, Senior Pastor, Menlo Church, Menlo Park, CA

“Greg came into Grace Community Church and gave us a top to bottom look at who we are as a church to the people we are most trying to reach.  He is thorough and detailed in his report, but tries hard to be helpful, explaining his findings in a context that fits with the church culture.  He knows that culture well, because he knows churches, people and he does his homework.  This is money well spent!” – Ron Edmondson, Co-Pastor, Grace Community Church, Clarksville, TN


“Greg Atkinson is smart, detailed, thorough and saw things that we would never notice.  His feedback was invaluable and we are making several strategic changes as a result of his visit.  We will use him again.  I encourage to you do the same.  In a word – he’s the best.” – Ray Johnston, Senior Pastor, Bayside Church, Sacramento, CA


“Visitors to your church are more often than not people who don’t know Jesus and are looking for an excuse to not come back.  Greg’s evaluation of your church helps you dig into where you can significantly improve a guests 1st time experience.  He makes you think and leaves no rock unturned.  Probably the best money we’ve spent all year long.” – Ashley Wooldridge, Executive Pastor, Christ’s Church of the Valley, Peoria, AZ


“I highly recommend Greg as a “Secret Shopper” for your church. He helped us see things we had missed and confirmed what we were already working toward. His insight will help your church feel like a home.” – Brady Boyd, Senior Pastor, New Life Church, Colorado Springs, CO


“Greg has a great ability to see and assess ministry detail. His work in many churches brings considerable experience and insight to your staff team. Greg’s church Secret Shopper process offered us a fresh set of eyes to help us take excellence to the next level. Very helpful!”-  Dan Reiland, Executive Pastor, 12Stone Church, Lawrenceville, GA


“Greg’s approach is thorough and holistic.  From the conversations before the visit to the detailed report following, you can tell Greg knows what he is doing and that he cares deeply for the local church.  Our weekend services benefited a great deal from his critical feedback and observations.”– Ted Vaughn, Chief Creative Officer, The Rock Church, San Diego, CA


“You want your church to Thrive?  If so, pay attention to the little things.  They add up to big impact!  Greg can help your church become more effective in just one visit!” – Dr. John Jackson, Executive Director, Thriving Churches International, Executive Pastor, Bayside Church


“Greg Atkinson helped us look at our weekend services with fresh eyes. His feedback was intelligent, balanced, and helpful.” – Steve Stroope, Lead Pastor, Lake Pointe Church, Rockwall, Texas


“It is easy to get lost in the day-to-day operations of the church and not see some of the glaring issues you may have in your church. Greg has the unique ability to look at the church from a “first time guest” perspective and communicate with you that experience. His insights were invaluable.”  – Scott Wilson, Lead Pastor, The Oaks Fellowship, Red Oak, Texas


Greg’s visit was exactly what we were looking for. I was impressed by how insightful and accurate his insight was considering he had never previously been to our church. He not only gave his careful observations but helped us think about the right strategic questions to ask as we move forward. I could list four or five changes we are implementing right now because of his feedback. This was money very well spent and we would recommend him highly.” – Rob Sweet, Teaching Pastor, Grace Fellowship Church, Johnson City, TN


“We recently had the privilege of having Greg Atkinson “Secret Shop” our Sunday morning services at NorthStar.  After sitting through our review of his experience, we found his insights not only helpful but super beneficial as we try to create a great experience for guest on Sunday mornings!  He helped us identify some of our “blind spots” and there is no doubt we will be better in the future because of his time with us!  There is no doubt, NorthStar will be a better place because of our time spent with Greg! Thanks Greg!”  – Mike Linch, Senior Pastor, NorthStar Church


“We used Greg Atkinson as a “secret shopper”just before we launched a multi-site and church planting initiative. We wanted to make sure we had a “third” eye to make sure our processes and systems were in place and would be transferable. We wanted an experienced, non-biased, and honest assessment of our services, staff, facilities and atmosphere. Greg was a tremendous asset in our process. We gained great insight, and discovered some things we were doing right, and some things that needed improving. We would recommend that any church needing a consultant that is informed and talented, use Greg.” – Artie Davis, Lead Pastor, Cornerstone Community Church, Orangeburg, SC




“Greg is one of the brightest, most insightful leaders I know. His knowledge of what is happening in churches around the country in worship and the arts, and in the church in general, is unmatched. Greg’s creativity and ability to think outside the box are a huge asset to any organization he works with. And his love and passion for the local church motivates everything he does. Greg built a thriving technical arts ministry for our church, and also led the transition to a 3300-seat state-of-the-art auditorium with a flawless transition from our old space.” – Scott Dyer, Worship Pastor, Bent Tree Bible Fellowship


“Because we only see our church services from the perspective of “I like it this way,” we often miss out on how others may like to see church. Unless you get an expert that knows what an effective service, children’s department, and worship experience should look like, you may never find what it is that brings in and holds the community. Greg Atkinson has that kind of experience. Invest in your church by having Greg share his insights with you and your staff.” – Billy Hornsby, President of ARC.


“Thanks Greg!  Your seminar was great.  Our staff really enjoyed your insights. I appreciate you very much.  Your expertise is a gift to the Church.” – Rick Muchow, Worship Pastor, Saddleback Church


“Greg Atkinson is a gifted communicator, but his communication skills go far beyond what you hear. Greg’s creative eye, relevant perspective, and technical skill enable him to provide other communicators with tools to deliver their message.  Greg understands the heart of the Christian mission and helps to present the message of the gospel in a way that is clear, moving and life changing.   It’s worth your time to spend some time with Greg.” – Dr. David H. McKinley, Teaching Pastor, Prestonwood Baptist Church


“Greg is one of the most influential behind-the-scenes leaders to the Church for authentic worship and practical management. Greg has a pastor’s spirit of encouragement and transparency.” – Rex Miller, Author and Speaker


“Greg Atkinson has been helping the Church engage the culture for years and he’s making a significant impact. In the digital age, when I need advice, I look for Greg Atkinson.” – Phil Cooke, President and Creative Director – Cooke Pictures


“Greg Atkinson has his hand on the pulse beat of worship.  He’s creative, innovative, and most importantly loves the Lord Jesus and is humble and meek.  I love his ideas and how he wants to serve the Church. I wholeheartedly endorse him and his ministry.” – Kim G. Noblitt, G3 Worship Music & Worship Pastor, FBC Springdale, AR
