Recommendation: Use the church leadership assessment tool to define your current reality.

Figuring out where we are is the first step in figuring out where we need to be—and how to get there.  

Working with a facilitator during a one-day event, your consistory will take a careful look at the leadership capacity of your congregation. Together, they'll look at where you are now. They'll envision what more vibrant leadership development could be. They'll identify next steps to live more deeply into God's calling to develop leaders. And they'll begin to make plans to live out those actions.

Recommendation: Take stock of your current mission efforts and look for ways to get more mileage out of what you’re doing.
