Unlimited Partnerships Church Coaching Division and Topper Reid were just the right partners we needed as we completed plans to strengthen our Bible Study ministry… They were true partners……

It is a pleasure to recommend Topper Reid for your consideration. We have enjoyed a fruitful relationship with Topper and Unlimited Partnerships, Inc. Topper was instrumental in helping us develop and address growth and organizational roadblocks including two of our greatest weaknesses, parking and first impressions.He worked behind the scenes to empower our staff and lat leaders to make tremendous improvements, in areas where little progress had been made. By development and implementing an effective strategy to expand our parking, we continued to grow. He also worked with me in developing and implementing our membership process, which has been vital in raising the bar of discipleship in our church.
His knowledge, combined with a humble and affable personality, make Topper an excellent choice to serve in the consulting role.

Liberty Baptist Church, Chelsea, AL, chose to partner with consultant Topper Reid and Unlimited Partnerships one year ago. As an established church with a rich 166 year heritage in a growing community, we identified a plateau in our ministry. From my perspective as senior pastor, I needed someone with greater experience in church growth to evaluate our ministry and guide our staff. When I began to probe my peers about “who” that would be, Topper Reid and Unlimited Partnerships came up multiple times. In Alabama, Topper’s reputation is sound as the “best of the best.” I agree.
We entered into a six month partnership with Topper as our consultant. Topper invested quality time with our staff as he evaluated ministry at Liberty. He brought “fresh eyes” and an objective viewpoint to the table. Topper both confirmed strengths and identified critical areas of improvement. He assisted the staff in developing a plan of action, but also walked us through implementation. Basically Topper became an additional staff member during these days. Even after our formal agreement, Topper remains in communication regarding our progress.
One year later, was the investment with Topper and Unlimited Partnerships worth it? Absolutely! We are experiencing growth as we continue implementation of action items established with Topper.

We have the privilege of living in one of the fastest growing cities in America. Our church was growing, but still we needed an extra set of eyes to look over our shoulder, and we needed an experienced practitioner who had been there and could help train our leaders and partner with us as we responded to the growth needs. Having had the privilege of knowing Topper over 20 years, I knew the places he had served and the results of the churches, and I knew his philosophy of church and growth. He came and partnered with us, essentially becoming part of our staff family and church over a period of nine months. Not only did he accomplish what we asked and needed, he made a difference!
Last year, Topper Reid invested in my life. While Sunday School or Bible Study was his assignment, he took the time to look at our entire situation, he listened, he coached, he prayed and he advised. His strong work ethic, church experience and heart for God helped our congregation to a new level of growth and discipleship. He was Mr. Sunday School for us!

We hired Church Strengthening to help us evaluate our education ministry and provide us with guidance in developing a growth strategy for our church. During the engagement, we had the tremendous privilege of working with Topper Reid and benefiting from his expertise, insights, and advice. He has patiently guided and prodded us to take steps that we believe God will use to make our church and our education ministry even more effective in reaching more people for Jesus Christ. I highly recommend the Church Strengthening group for all churches as they plan and evaluate their ministries. Proverbs 15:22 says, “Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.” The Church Strengthening team is an invaluable adviser that brings godly wisdom and experience to the table.

Skyland Boulevard Baptist Church of Tuscaloosa, Alabama committed to partner with Unlimited Partnerships, Inc. for nine months to lead us as we endeavored to enter into two Sunday Schools and two Worship Services. Topper Reid did an outstanding job in leading us to accomplish that task.
Topper also led us to “get ready for company” by updating our preschool, children’s, student, and adult department with new flooring, flat screen televisions, new chairs and repainting of all our facilities. We also installed new carpet in the worship center and replaced the pews with chairs.
We could not have accomplished what we did without the guidance of Unlimited Partnerships, Inc. During this period our Sunday School enrollment has increased by 89. We have also had an increase in attendance both in morning services and Sunday Evening service.
Skyland Boulevard Baptist is thankful for the ministry of Unlimited Partnerships and we highly recommend this organization if you wish to reorganize your church for the purpose of reaching your community for Jesus Christ.
