He mentors and coaches diverse church and non-profit leaders for personal growth, program development, and organizational sustainability. Tom works with organizations onsite and online. He provides personal coaching for clergy and CEOs, and webinars for boards and ministry teams.The Mission Impact Guide, by Tom Bandy, is a concise summary of ministry applications for each of the 60+ lifestyle types described by Mosaic research. It is specifically designed for local church and denominational planning, and for the faith‐based non‐profit agencies that are accountable to them. The Mosaic description is provided for each lifestyle type, followed by the ministry applications:

  • Leadership

  • Hospitality

  • Education

  • Small Groups

  • Worship

  • Outreach

  • Facilities

  • Finances

  • Communication

The content for each of the Mosaic lifestyle portraits and corresponding ministry filters was created by Tom Bandy using Experian’s collected data for each of the segments. This included the Mosaic Grand Index and other documentation (probably about 80% of the suggested ministry filter applications), in conjunction with Tom Bandy’s personal consulting experience with churches and regional agencies for more than 30 years. Tom authored multiple books that informed not only the nine ministry filters, but several focused more deeply on Spiritual Leadership and Worship.
