About us

We are all about building healthy churches. Over the past nine years, our expert bloggers - a group of well-known authors and researchers – have equipped leaders with biblical best practices and practical advice on church turnarounds.

Dr. Thom Rainer and Tom Harper created Church Central in 2002. After Dr. Rainer became CEO of LifeWay in 2006, Harper continued as president of Church Central, as well as president of the parent company, Networld Media Group. Networld is a successful online business-to-business publisher in the retail, digital signage, banking, technology and restaurant industries.

In 2008, Harper co-founded the non-profit Society for Church Consulting, which has trained and certified hundreds of consultants.
