The Future Church Co. was founded in 2020 by Kelly Kannwischer, Dave Rhodes, and Will Mancini. We are grateful to have the opportunity to serve the church in empowering followers of Jesus to maximize their God-given potential and develop God-inspired plans for the future.
While we are still committed to these things, Future Church Co. will be closing as of the end of June 2022. Will Mancini, one of our co-founders, has resigned. And the ministry, as it was formed, is not tenable in its current state. We continue to pray for Will and his family and we are moving forward with hope for the future, but it will not be what we had planned or intended when we founded Future Church Co.
The processes of Pivvot (Funnel Fusion), Younique, and Denominee will continue to be delivered by coaches and trainers that have been a part of our core or extended teams. They just will not be delivering these processes under the Future Church Co. banner. Each one of us on the team will be shifting to other opportunities and we will continue to be available to serve church and ministry leaders at every level. Please find our contact info below to stay in touch.
We choose to see this current difficulty not as an end but as a new beginning.
Grace and peace –
Kelly Kannwischer & Dave Rhodes

Chris is looking forward to continuing his work with local networks/associations across the country, guiding them to greater kingdom effectiveness.

Jessie will also be learning how to develop the next generation of church planters and disciple-makers.
