PASTORAL TRANSITION CONSULTATION
HOW IT WORKS: THE CONSULTATION PROCESS
A Pastoral Transition Consultation takes place over a period of 6 to 14 months and includes the following:
>> An extensive month-long self-study
>> The Natural Church Development Survey with detailed analysis.
>> A 3- to 5-day launch site visit by your consulting team, typically a strategic planning visit, an all-church retreat, a leadership retreat, or some combination of these. The purpose of this visit is to develop and launch a strategic plan for improving the church's health over the coming year.
>> 4 to 12 months of ministry coaching by a member of your consulting team, including unlimited phone and email access to your coach.
>> Optional depending on your needs: An in-depth written report and recommendations.
>> A second Natural Church Development survey 12 to 24 months after your first survey to monitor your progress in improving church health and to identify where focused attention is required for the coming year.
>> Up to two additional coaching visits by your Church Health Coach, the first typically 4 to 5 months after the launch site visit; the other about 11 months after the launch visit. The length and agenda of these visits will be tailored to your needs. If your church is within easy commute distance for your coach, it may work for you to have more frequent, shorter coaching visits.
>> Finally, if you are interested in continuing the coaching relationship beyond 12 months, we will prepare a written proposal for another year's church health coaching. We contract for coaching on a year-by-year basis, tailoring each year's program to the specific needs of your church.
