From time to time, it can be extremely helpful to analyze the perspectives, attitudes and habits of your church’s climate for growth. Identifying what is working, as well where opportunities to increase the church’s influence and reach might exist.
The Multisite Assessment is a one-day experience that provides a thorough assessment of your church’s quotient for growth and reveals the most likely opportunities for expanding your ministry. Think of it like an x-ray into the growth potential of your church. We will discover what driving forces to harness as well as what inhibiting factors (if any) that would stunt that growth. We developed this type of assessment after decades of experience with a wide variety of churches and realizing what an incredibly helpful planning tool this could be.
The experience includes the collecting and analyzing of historical data prior to the assessment, meeting onsite with senior leadership and “perspective groups,” and providing written recommendations after the visit.
The Multisite Assessment will explore four primary areas:
Before the day of the assessment, significant work is done to prepare for the assessment. Key leaders send in responses to questions about their area of responsibility. Support staff collect varied documents of history, policy and more. The day of the assessment is full of interviews and discussions. There are three 60 minute “active listening” discussions with Senior Pastor, Executive Pastor and others that we determine are necessary. often including the Governing Board, other key staff - Finance, Operations and HR teams, children and student ministries, tech and production worship etc.
Within three weeks of the assessment day, you’ll receive a comprehensive report of findings with recommended priorities, timelines and deliverables for implementation. The report presents readable findings about next steps, opportunities, limitations and options. The report includes “wins” that can take your church to the next level of ministry. Based on this pertinent information, you can determine your next steps and the level of coaching (if any) that Generis can assist you with.
