Church Health

From time to time, it helps to get an outside perspective on what’s happening inside your church. Below are the services the Field Office provides to assist local church leadership in addressing the health of their ministry. For more information on any of these services, contact Dennis Pust.

We knew that God was calling us to something new and your assessment helped confirm some areas [where] we felt His leading, and also convicted us of some new things that we were unaware of.

Thank you again for your prophetic word to our church. It was obvious that you were very sensitive to the Spirit’s leading and it had great impact on our congregation.
— Elder Board Member, Christ's Community Church, Granite Falls, Washington

 

ASSESSMENT

A church assessment process is intended to give you a clear picture of your current reality, and a clear process to discover God’s plan for your future. At the request of a church’s leadership, a trained team comes alongside a church to help them gain an accurate picture of the church’s health and offer a prescription for greater health and impact. In addition to leaders who are a part of the Alliance Northwest, we partner with VitalChurch Ministry and New Church Specialties to provide this service.

 

REFOCUS

It's normal to stop and refocus at some point. This is true for churches, too. A church refocusing process involves an experienced coach coming alongside the pastor and church leadership team for 12 to 18 months. The guided method begins with a period of spiritual renewal followed by a redefining of the mission, vision, and values of the church, culminating in a strategic ministry plan and implementation timeline.

 

intentional INTERIM PASTORS

Sometimes churches find themselves in between Lead Pastors and can greatly benefit from the skills of an experienced pastor who specializes in serving a congregation through a season of transition. Transitions are perfect times to address core issues of health to prepare the way for a new long-term Lead Pastor.
