Funnel Fusion Process

grow your church by multiplying disciples

Don’t settle for assimilating.

Many churches in North America operate based on an Assimilation Funnel (usually including 3 or 4 stages). In each of these stages, a smaller percentage of people participate, moving from Worship to Connect to Serve (moving left to right). This funnel (shown in blue in the graphic) is generally effective in guiding people through a process of becoming more integrated into the programs of the church.

The problem with the Assimilation Funnel alone is that involvement does not always equal discipleship.

With Funnel Fusion, a second funnel is integrated into the life of the church—the Multiplication Funnel. In this funnel (shown in red), the number of people grows over time as people move through the stages. The goal of this funnel is to empower people to live out their unique design where they live, work, and play (many times, outside of the programs of the church). 

The fusion of the Assimilation Funnel and the Multiplication Funnel is the engine for long-term, real church growth.

This Process is designed to give you and your team the tools you need to forge your Funnel Fusion.


Every element in the Funnel Fusion Process is developed in collaboration as an entire team, producing buy-in and alignment. Our Trainers don’t provide answers, only guidance and perspective along the way.


Tools bridge the gap between information and application. In the difficult work of engaging with the tools, the path to Funnel Fusion emerges. Your team will need to walk that path together over time.


Every Funnel Fusion Process is slightly different and is customized to your church’s specific needs. We tailor the process, which includes both onsite and virtual consulting sessions, to fit your specific context.
