Coaching: a one-on-one relationship between a pastor/lay person and an endorsed coach through which the person being coached has the opportunity to more deeply explore calling, ministry, and leadership skills necessary to lead a congregation to greater missional impact in its community.
As your coach I promise to: (1) Enter into each meeting prayerfully and open to the Holy Spirit. (2) Work to gain your full trust by listening intently, asking clarifying questions, and keeping strict confidentiality. (3) Help you explore God’s call for you—for today and for the future. (4) Offer observations that may be helpful to you, always in a loving way. (5) Offer knowledge and information that might be helpful. (6) Never offer “answers” unless they have been specifically requested, and even then will be shared only after your own answers have been fully explored.
Consultations last from 1-3 days and equip church leaders to motivate congregations, equip church leaders to implement change, and use resources more effectively. The client congregation will be expected to complete the audit or other significant research, prior to the on-site consultation. A final report will be presented and interpreted, and follow-up support can be arranged.
“Pray like it all depends on God; work like it all depends on you!” This was the sage advice a friend once offered. His pithy saying captures an important sense of balance, both recognizing our dependence on God and the obligations we have to invest ourselves fully in the tasks to which God calls us. Few would start a business or engage in a major expansion without careful planning, goal setting, and identifying means for assessing progress. Major efforts in church renewal and church planting deserve the same thoughtful and careful planning. That’s were our consulting services come in. With over 3 decades of experience in for profit, non-profit, and church settings, our team can help you plan for success from establishing mission/vision/values through plan implementation and review. Let us join with you in helping to realize the vision God has given you!
The branding of your church is one of the most important aspects of a successful church plant. To communicate to your community you must be visible in it. Branding helps establish the personality of your church visually and will give visitors a sense of belonging even before they wall through your door. Then, good branding will help maintain communication with your members so they always know what’s happening.
A solid church branding package can include:
