Wondering where your church falls on the life cycle? Want to know more about how consultations work? Take our free assessments below and we will send you the results of where you see your church. Both the Church Type Assessment and the Life Cycle Assessment tools are used in consultations and, at that time, are administered to the entire congregation.
Church Type Assessment
This assessment is intended to help you, as a church leader, get an idea of your how your church is operating church, as a single cell, stretched cell, or multiple cell. This will also give you an idea of the type of assessments we use during a consultation.
All too often, in churches and groups within churches today, there is considerable twisting to get people involved or 90% of the work is being done by a weary 10%. Why does this happen? Partially due to ignorance and partially due to avoidance of spiritual gifts. First, we should discover what gift was given to us at our Spiritual birth, then we need to see where that gift fits into the functioning of the body.
Imagine you and some friends decide to put together a football team. But, somehow your team ends up in the stadium playing a professional team. You would not fare too well and probably would be seriously hurt. This is because of your lack of equipment, training, conditioning, experience, and skills at playing the positions required.
The same holds true for the church today. People become involved in a church without the proper understanding of the equipment; little training, conditioning, or basic skills; and practically no knowledge of positions on the playing field.
It is essential to understand how we all can minister together toward our common goal. We must know how God can use us, i.e. the position we should play on the team.
