We offer assistance to congregations wanting to assess their strengths and resources, face challenges and obstacles, explore opportunities for mission, and strategize about their future.  We use a discernment model to nurture an attitude of listening to God, one another, and the community. After an initial visit, we design and propose a process geared to the unique situation of each church.  These involve worship, Bible study, prayer, small group discussion, discovery assignments, and hands-on experiences to foster “holy conversation”.  We can offer on-site leadership and guidance as well as remote coaching as a congregation gets underway with such a process.
