We help churches and community organizations sharpen their culture.

And we do it by sharpening these three key areas...


The methods we use to talk to our clients and customers.


The tools we use to organize our work, to become both responsive and efficient.


The special environment where we interact with others.

Thinking About Culture

When you walk into your favourite coffee shop, what do you notice?  Is it the fresh aroma of ground coffee, or the friendly, smiling staff, on mission to make your day better?  Is it the trendy colours, artwork and finishes of the store?  Is it the casual seating?

Real words...

Kim Loney

Chief Program Officer, International Teams Canada

Gary listened to our vision, asked good questions and then took our ideas to design a program model reflecting our values and culture. He developed the role of 'high capacity volunteers' as the key component in our design. We implemented this model and continue to build effectively upon it today. I would highly recommend Gary and The SharpeEdge Group.

Communications Director, The Journey Newmarket

Gary Sharpe and his team at SharpEdge have been instrumental in helping us relaunch The Journey Newmarket. Gary provided beneficial insights on where to put our energies based on his experience with other churches and our outreach focus. His team helped us with rebranding including a new logo, graphics, a new web site, how to make better use of social media, tools to manage ministries & volunteers, guidance with facility enhancements and much more! He was the right person at the right time; a great communicator and a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend him and his team.

Worship Pastor, New Life Assembly, Petrolia, ON

Gary's sharp eye, knowledge of worship spaces and humility were incredibly appreciated as he helped us think through next steps in our very dated building. It was refreshing to find someone with so much wisdom and experience who wasn't pushy and who didn't talk down to us. Our Lead Pastor appreciated how respectfully Gary communicated his insights and ideas.
