A one-day on site assessment with the senior pastor, staff, and governing board to determine strengths that will create health and identify weaknesses that hamper breaking size barriers. The way to determine your next steps are to assess where you are presently in order to define the next steps.
A three-day on site assessment that includes a report on ten critical areas. It would also include an interview with the senior leader, staff, and a consultation with the Governing or Elder Board. The result will be measurable goals and strategies toward a vision.
A year long personal coaching with the senior leader on issues of leadership, vision creation, staffing, and strengthening your church culture. This would also include three tune-ups for the Governing or Elder Board. Every leader needs a coach, every Board needs a tune-up, and every church needs an outside voice that gives honest assessment.
Why should a church, pastor or a Governing Board consider a church health assessment?
Because there is too much at stake! The church is God’s plan for us to reach the unchurched or formerly churched, and to help individuals, couples and families grow spiritually. One size doesn’t fit all! There is no perfect size for a church. It is all about health!
The alternative is to do nothing while pastors burnout and churches decline.
Senior Leader or transition plans.
Governing / Elder Board roles .
Finance tools and metrics.
Ministry programming evaluation.
Communication / Marketing plan.
David’s ability to give you straight talk about the present condition of a church is brilliant. He was able to help one of our largest churches in Florida deal with a sensitive leadership issue. The way he was able to navigate the consultation with the Board gave them hope and direction. The church took his advice!
Dr. Smith is a strong, gifted & compassionate leader. He is well read and highly qualified to offer insight into ministry issues. Having him work with our team, I found the time extremely valuable and his insight very helpful. A day with David Smith is a day well invested in matters of eternity. If you have the opportunity to connect with David, seize the day.
