Our world desperately needs churches and ministries to thrive.  We need the Gospel to be proclaimed, God to be worshiped, and authentic community to be revived.

With our world changing so rapidly, casting vision, creating a culture, developing strategies, and building teams to make these goals a reality is not easy.  That is why John Denny felt called to begin WayFinder.  He realized that many churches and ministries do not have the financial resources to pay consultants.  So he formed WayFinder as a 501c3 to provide high quality consulting services, so that every church and ministry can thrive!

John can help you find God's way to thrive...

John is the Founder and Lead Consultant at WayFinder.  At his core John is a problem solver and energizer.  He has spent the past 4+ years consulting with churches across the country on a variety of topics.  He previously spent 22 years as an Executive Pastor for three different churches. His experience and passion is for building strong leadership teams, establishing winning cultures, developing creative plans, and inspiring others to get results.

We believe in the..

life changing power of the gospel, Eph 2:4-8

importance of the local church, Eph 5:29

strength of teamwork, Eccl 4:9-12

value of wise counsel, Prov 1:5 


Our process is quite simple...

We desire to form strong and trusting relationships with the churches and ministries we serve.  We spend time together listening to the unique goals and struggles that each of our clients are facing.  Then we develop unique and creative paths to reach the desired results. Finally, we provide training and encouragement to implement the plan, make adjustments along the way, and celebrate as God is glorified.


"I have served with John in megachurches and in a church plant and have seen his ability to lead as a pastor and as a strategist. Rare gifting that will serve a church of any size."


Tim Lundy, Senior Pastor | Venture Christian Church

John served as Tim's Executive Pastor

"It is hard to quantify how vital John’s role was in my transition to Lead Pastor at Christ Community. He is a unique thinker, leader, and has an uncanny ability to see issues from a variety of angles. My only solace in losing him from our team is the knowledge that he will be free to bless many other churches along the way."


Michael Loudermilk, Lead Pastor | Christ Community Church

John served as Michael's Executive Pastor

"John's expertise has been transformative for our congregation and ministry. His strategic insights and practical recommendations have played a pivotal role in our church's growth and development. I highly recommend John to any church seeking impactful guidance and support."

Vernon Bryant, Lead Pastor | New Life Fellowship

"John's experience and expertise both in business and ministry have been invaluable in helping us to smoothly navigate our recent church merger and create a strategic plan that is driving growth in our church. He brings fresh insights and perspectives to our team that have guided us through the unprecedented challenges of 2020." 


Rick DeMarco, Pastor of Administration | River Ridge Church

"John has become more to me than an expert church consultant.

He is both my friend and a brother in Christ that supports my family and ministry through prayer and encouragement."


Kerry Bauman, Senior Pastor | River Ridge Church

"John is a hardworking and trustworthy consultant who creatively looks to find ways to help his clients do better in ministry. He has consistently challenged me to become a more effective pastor."
