Diagnostic Consultation Process

A thorough analysis of your congregation’s health, strength, and challenges. Recommendations for more effective ministry are shared to help you achieve more for God’s purpose. A report is generated that graphically illustrates the church’s views, attitudes, and worldviews. These become the mechanisms to develop a strategic plan for recommendations to move your church to action. Your Church Doctor develops a more personal relationship as a friend, resource, guide, and encourager as you maintain access with your consultant through the total process.

Ministry Snapshot Analysis

A one-day service to churches providing a thorough analysis of your church ministry. The Church Doctor makes an onsite visit, conducts many interviews, and generates a written report with 20-40 recommendations, with six to eight recommendations singled out as foundational. Frequently combined with a Special Focus Consultation for maximum effectiveness.

Special Focus Consultation

Personal attention from the Church Doctor, according to your agenda, for as many days as you like. The Church Doctor will meet with the senior pastor, staff, board; field questions from the congregation in an evening session; look over your facilities – whatever you design. You will receive a report with specific recommendations for your church.

Risk Management
