We Help You Grow in

Relevance, Revenue & Impact

Many churches, ministries and Christian businesses are stuck and don’t know why or where to go next. We can help.

We Get It

Hi, this is Marc Stein and I am the founder of Culture Bender. I am a Jewish businessman turned Jesus follower. For the past 10+ years, I have served full-time as executive and practitioner in three significant yet very different Christian ministries overseeing domestic and international operations.

I know first-hand how hard it can be to lead and succeed in this environment. I, also, know that you can achieve what you have been called to do…when you have the right person to help you. Namely, someone who has already been there, done that.

During my tenure as a leader in Christian service, I noticed a severe shortage of innovation and creativity in Christian ministry.

For that reason, I have assembled an amazing flex team of highly accomplished, like-minded Kingdom professionals ready and fully prepared to serve.

Our four-step plan is simple.

  1. Schedule a phone appointment for you and me to speak.
  2. We’ll talk about your situation and what you would like to accomplish.
  3. If you choose, let us develop an action plan customized to meet your needs.
  4. Then, we’ll execute the plan together.

As part of the planning process, I will personally help you or match you with the best qualified individual to help you meet your objectives — saving you time and money. Only the finest, proven practitioners and executives are selected to serve.

Doing nothing is a not good option — if you had the in-house capability or capacity, you would have already done it. What happens if you don’t succeed?

Let’s talk. Schedule an appointment now. 

What Others Say

  • I think it is arguable that your work, particularly on the Irresistible Church series could be considered among the most significant contributions to the furthering of disability ministry in the past 10 years.

  • Your Culture Bender Briefings are pebbles of thought that break the surface waters of the mind....It always succeeds in disrupting the still places in my own thinking and helps keep my mind fresh.

    Brian Shun | CEO, Thinkify
  • Based on your recommendations, I’m pleased to report that our new Dean of the Seminary (one of my two positions) will arrive in June. That leaves me with one job, and my new list of major priorities has 3, instead of 2 sets of 7, items.
