Assessing Church Health and Impact
Since leaving the staff of a church in 1989 to open a Christ centered Clinical Counseling and in-patient center I have had the opportunity to visit and minister in a lot of different churches. One of my ministries has been and continues to be Mentoring and supporting Christians in formal and informal ministries.
I have seen a lot of different churches here in the USA and around the world. As a result I have developed ideas about the effectiveness of leaders, various church structures, and theological approaches.
Assessing Effectiveness on a 1-10 Scale:
A Focus on Growth and Healing
Good Preaching and Teaching
Gifts of the Spirit
Ministry to Children and Youth
Ministry to Couples and Families
Equipping Members to Serve
Worship Quality and Variety
Outreach to Non-Believers
Variety of Ways to Enter Church Activities
A Good Reputation in the Wider Community
There are possibly more.
