Dr. Nolte’s Personal Statement:

I accepted the invitation to join Transformation Ministries for a very simple reason – our MISSION! That mission can be clearly stated as the goal to see that there are “More Healthy Churches” because we know that means “More Changed Lives”. While I never saw myself leading an organization like TM per se my passion has been and remains the local church and the Pastors who lead them. So here I am.

Transformation Ministries was formed as a covenanting Association of Churches in 2006 with a common mission. That mission in its simplest form would be: More Healthy Churches, More Changed Lives. It is our core conviction that the local church is God’s Plan A for the Gospel to reach the world and there is no Plan B. TM was officially formed in 2006 from a group of congregations which were formally part of the American Baptist Churches of the Pacific Southwest. That group simplified, focused and organized around our commitment to the local church and the leaders whom God has gifted and called to lead. Today we are some 170 congregations in thirteen (13) states and Northern Mexico (Tijuana), along with three (3) highly effective Camp/Conference Centers.

Diverse in size, location and ethnicity TM is committed to provide exceptional leadership training and equipping in a highly relational culture.

TM is Our Mission!

TM’s Story

Transformation Ministries is a covenanting Association of Churches with a common mission. That mission in its simplest form would be: More Healthy Churches, More Changed Lives. It is our core conviction that the local church is God’s Plan A for the Gospel to reach the world and there is no Plan B. TM was officially formed in 2006 from a group pf congregations which were formally part of the American Baptist Churches of the Pacific Southwest. That group simplified, focused and organized around our commitment to the local church and the leaders whom God has gifted and called to lead. Today we are some 170 congregations in thirteen (13) states and Northern Mexico (Tijuana). Diverse in size, location and ethnicity TM is committed to provide exceptional leadership training and equipping in a highly relational culture.

All our resources and activities are concentrated around our three “Core Competencies”. I often say we only do three things:

Partner and Resource church toward

Reach more people by

We are convinced that the key to seeing more healthy churches in America today is vital and effective relationships and partnerships among leaders and congregations. Sadly far too many leaders and churches are trying to do ministry alone. We are likewise convinced that TM is our common MISSION and we are committed to that end.

So whether it is through a Mentor Group; Church consulting, Pastoral placement, connecting exceptional leaders to one another, leader-specific training events, church planting or strategic partnerships with effective ministries or organizations, our investment and commitment is to the leaders whom God has gifted, called and placed to lead the Church.

We’ve taken a bold and visionary step toward fulfilling our Mission. We call it VISION 2020(link?) and it represents, in short, our commitment to “Invest to Thrive instead of Protect to Survive.” God is directing and blessing our commitment to live into our Mission as a ministry! Read more about it here at our website.

God is doing amazing things through TM! Why? Amazing leaders and churches who have banded together on a common mission to pursue the only mission of the Church of Jesus Christ – “Go Make Disciples!”

How can we serve you?
