Church Health

What if all of our churches were well-organized and running as efficiently as a well-tuned Ferrari?  What impact could we have on our mission field here in the Southeastern United States?

All too often Church Health is equated to “Church Growth.”  In reality, true Church Health is much more than numbers or following the “right” plan or formula.  Indeed, healthy churches are most effective when the five purposes of Acts 2:42-47 are intentional, active and balanced:

  • Evangelism
  • Fellowship
  • Discipleship
  • Ministry
  • Worship

Our goal is to provide a simple process for Pastors to evaluate their ministry effectiveness.  Though simple, we must enter this process with much prayer, as this transformation process can be successful only through partnership with God.  Our healthy church pathway includes these three simple steps:

  • Step 1 – Assess Your Church Health - To start the process towards a more effective ministry, we offer holistic assessments of your existing church health.  These tools will help you examine your existing strategy, structure, staff, leadership style, skills, support systems and shared values.
  • Step 2 – Develop Your Fitness Plan - Once you have an accurate assessment of your church’s health, the next step is to work with key staff and lay leaders to develop an action/fitness plan for improving your ministry effectiveness.
  • Step 3 – Implement Your Fitness Plan - There are multiple opportunities to transform your church into a more productive body for the Kingdom.  These efforts include strategic planning,  leadership development, process improvement, team building, conflict resolution, restructuring, and outreach.  Each is managed according to the master fitness plan developed by you and other key leaders.
