Wake Up.  Grow Healthy.  Live Again.

Never walk alone again. The path of leading a small to midsize church is filled with many challenges and sometimes weariness. At the Church Revitalize Center, we understand your struggles and your dreams, and we’re here to walk with you. Through our Revitalize Roadmap, we’ll guide you in truly knowing yourself, your church, your community, and creating a clear plan that fits your unique calling. This journey is about rediscovery, renewal, and revitalizing the heart of your congregation. We don’t offer services—we’re partners. We believe in the profound impact your church can make, and are committed to helping you bring it to life. Utilizing wisdom, empathy, and hands-on support, we’re ready to stand with you. Let’s embark on the road together and witness the transformation and growth your church is longing for.

Revitalize  Roadmap  Cohorts  &  Coaching

Our Cohorts are not group meetings—they’re lifelines for pastors who are striving to revitalize their churches. Over the course of four months, you’ll join fellow pastors digitally, meeting twice a month in an environment of support, collaboration, and growth. It’s a place to be honest about challenges, share insights, and explore the Revitalize Roadmap together. These cohorts are designed with you in mind, recognizing the real struggles and opportunities that come with leading a small to midsize church. Through guided discussions and shared experiences, we’ll journey together toward renewal, finding strength in community and clarity in purpose. The digital format makes connection accessible, designed for your schedule to allow you to engage from anywhere. Like, through coaching we will walk with you through every step of your revitalization journey. Our coaches are available for prayer, spiritual support, discipleship, leadership development, church consultation, and encouragement.

Multiplying Churches & Leaders

We partner with NAMB and Be the Church to help churches multiply disciples and leaders to plant new churches. Christians multiply. Local church are designed to reproduce. Our Multiplication Centers help churches fulfill their calling as they reshape their local region for God’s glory.

Learning & Training

We believe that no one should go into debt to go into ministry. In place of the usual ministry learning experience, we’ve created  “pra-academic” ministry training to educate practioners of ministry. This training allows for accredited learning while serving the local church.

Podcasts & Media

Our podcasts share stories, challenges, and tips for the local church today. Our premier podcast, The Revitalize Doctor, centers around diagnosing deadly church diseases and prescribing spiritual solutions.

Conference & Webinars

The Revitalize Conference is our premiere webinar to provide churches with practical content designed to take them off life support to thriving. The Revitalize Conference is offered in the first quarter of every year.

Pulpit Support

Does your church need someone to fill in for a week or two? We can help.


Pastors need be away from time to time. Sometimes, pastors need a break.

A sabbatical might even be a way to recharge a pastor’s batteries.

Michael Rubino has become a trusted guide and a respected co-laborer in the ministry. He has generously shared his wisdom and advice with me as I have faced various challenges in pastoral leadership. He has helped me discover and cultivate leadership strengths and assess our congregation’s health. He has helped me think through how best to reach our community with the gospel. I know I can count on Michael not to pull his punches. He is always ready with God’s Word to reprove, rebuke, exhort, and teach, but he does so with gentleness and respect.

I am looking forward to watching how God uses Michael not only as a pastor in his local church but also as a pastor for pastors through the Church Revitalize Center.

“I’ve observed the ministry impact of Michael Rubino’s Church Revitalize Center from a distance for several years. However, I recently became acquainted with Michael on a personal level as we have served together in conferences designed to encourage ministry leaders no matter the size of your ministry. Michael’s impact is both convicting & comforting, introspective & inspiring, strategic & supportive, as well as reflective & relevant. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience easily transferable to any leader willing to learn.
