    REPRESENTING JESUS

    We coach churches in corporate missional rhythms & personal, relational evangelism that balances love & truth in tandem. Our end goal is mobilizing every believer to effectively identify, pray, engage, and share the gospel with their friends and family who are far from God.

    RELATIONALLY FOCUSED

    We coach churches to be a community that you engage, not an event you attend. Our end goal is moving people out of rows and into circles where your church truly becomes a loving family and an effective team.

Dan’s life mission is to multiply followers of Jesus & leaders for Jesus. He grew up as a pastor’s kid in the suburbs of Cleveland, OH. Leadership has always been in his DNA. At the age of 19, Dan became student body president at his college. He has preached to thousands of people since he became a traveling Christian speaker in 2010. Check out his speaking porfolio HERE. He was ordained in 2011 and planted Restored Church in inner-city Wilkes-Barre, PA with an amazing team. Restored grew from 4 people to 300 people in a few short years with 2 new church plants coming soon. Dan holds Bachelor of Science (B.S.) & Master of Arts (M.A.) degrees in Bible & Theology, and he is completing his Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) degree at Clarks Summit University. He is married to his best friend Joy, and they have one son named Landon. You can learn more about Dan through his website: www.danandjoy.com.
We train churches and leaders in MyCircle Evangelism. This comes from our good friend Jim Murphy – an extremely gifted evangelist, pastor, church-planter, and mobilizer. This training is for BOTH introverts and extroverts. It’s thoroughly gospel-centered with a balance of word & deed. Dozens of churches across the nation have seen the incredible results of this training – including Restored Church. It will effectively mobilize you & the people you lead to identify, pray, engage, and share the good news of Jesus in their unique spheres of influence.
Dan is a certified church-planting coach with Gateway Leaders. They provide a 9-month training process called Cultivate. It’s designed to help you develop the habits and skills essential to plant and grow a vibrant, effective church plant that takes people from “lost-to-leading.”

Cultivate was developed by successful church planters who have seen thousands of people find faith, grow, and become leaders of the church. Cultivate combines expert content, guided real-world experiences, and transforming relationships to help you develop a contextual strategy specifically designed for your culture.

“Dan is very knowledgeable on the mission of the church and his teaching methods capture the full attention of his audience. Our team continues to talk about our meeting with Dan and anticipates what God has for us in the future. He will show your members the potential in the church and provide practical steps they can follow. This is not another seminar on evangelism and discipleship, but a blueprint Dan used successfully in his own ministry.”

– Dr. Jim Newton, Lead Pastor
Reimer Road Baptist Church – Wadsworth, OH

“Dan is good at what he does. When you meet Dan, you quickly realize you have made acquaintance with a dedicated, compassionate visionary. His wisdom and passion for helping church leaders and churches define the present limitations to their future ministry’s effectiveness is an invaluable part of his contribution. Dan will help you set a path and then define the resources needed to successfully navigate the next steps for your part in fulfilling the Great Commission. For those leaders and churches who are willing to risk the ‘what is’ for the ‘what could be,’ I highly recommend Dan for your organization’s ministry needs.”

– Sal Maiorana, Lead Pastor
Waymart Church – Waymart, PA

“Dan Nichols has an obvious and contagious passion for leading Christians to take the gospel wherever they go. His training method and winsome personality make people comfortable with him & evangelism…so much so that those in his training become contagious as well.”

– Dr. Ben Graham, Lead Pastor

Grace Baptist Church – Chattanooga, TN

“As an active practitioner and successful church planter, Dan Nichols brings his knowledge and experience to those of us who pastor, lead, and actively attend established churches. Our churches often struggle with ‘getting back to basics’ while also ‘thinking outside of the box.’ Dan is just the guy to help us all practically refocus on the areas of reaching our & being active in our community. Dan is equipped to coach a church through the necessary changes while pivoting them towards growth and success.”

– Rob Rodriguez, Lead Pastor

Calvary Bible Church – Phoenixville, PA

“Dan is an effective leader with great insight and depth of ministry experience and expertise. His relational strengths and background as a church planter make him an excellent church planting & ministry coach, especially for young leaders. Dan has great insights into the current generation and how to translate the transcendent message of the Gospel in an understandable way into their lives. I believe Dan can be a great help to Churches increasing their organizational and ministry effectiveness.”
