The Growth Assessment is designed to help you have a multi-dimensional evaluation of your church growth efforts.

The Church Growth Assessment was designed to help you evaluate objectively the steps that your church is taking towards growth. The assessment questions are meant to shed light on common hurdles that impede growth in many churches. You are required to answer the questions as truthful as you can. The assessment is also meant to trigger an honest and objective discussion about church growth. We encourage you to take the test as a group so that your answers can be as accurate as possible. Please member that the results of the assessment are not as important as subsequent discussion on how to grow your church.

We have material to empower your church to build a methodical and thorough visitor follow up culture. No more visitors falling through the cracks.

There are many factors that can cause visitors to leave or not return to a church. They might not like the music, the preaching, the building, or the “general feel” and there is not much that can be done to change the culture of your church overnight. Not every church is for everybody, and that’s okay. But if your visitors aren’t sticking around because they weren’t properly welcomed and followed up, that’s a problem that should receive the attention of the leaders. We have material to empower your church to build a methodical and thorough visitor follow up culture. No more visitors falling through the cracks.​

We have material designed to help you build strong convert integration systems.

Studies have shown that when you consider the total number of members that leave a church in a given year, on average 82% percent of the leaving members are new members who have been in the church for less than a year. Most New Members leave close to their six-month tenure with the church or close to their twelve-month tenure. So, new church members seem to give new churches a “test” at both six months and twelve months. When new members are not properly integrated or assimilated into the new church they will quickly move on. We have material designed to help you build strong convert integration systems.

We have educational material to help you church, especially the pastoral teams with ways of ensuring that your members are engaged.

Engagement has a lot to do with participation and involvement. In our churches we have members that are active and members that are inactive, we have members that participate in what is happening and contribute towards the activities and we have those that are not. The difference between the two different members is ENGAGEMENT. We have educational material to help you church, especially the pastoral teams with ways of ensuring that your members is engaged in your God ordained vision.

Excellent administration and financial management are the bedrock for managing your church growth. We have resources to help you pursue excellence in your church financial management.

Every growing church should excel in the area of administration and financial management. Excellent administration and financial management are the bedrock for managing your church growth. Most church members are looking for churches that are well organised and manage finances in a proficient manner. This is because church financial accountability leads to credibility. It’s easy for members to offer their financial resources and time when they know that church leaders are good stewards of the resources. We have resources to help you pursue excellence in your church financial management.

We have prepared material to help your church build a strong a culture of evangelism and community outreach.

By almost any metric, the churches in our generation are much less evangelistic than they were in the recent past. Evangelism is that magnet that gets visitors into your church. If you want to grow you should build a culture of evangelism and support that culture. Studies have shown that the average church will lose about 10% of their members each year and will only convert about 15% of visitors to full members. This means that a church has to attract the equivalent of 75% of their church size in new members each year just to maintain their church size. Our tools are designed to help you build a strong culture of Evangelism.

We have material to help you build a strong small groups system that is efficient and effective.

Without a strong small group strategy, your church runs the risk of build Sunday consumer Christians. This type of Christianity is part of the consumerism that is now prevalent in our generation and has also fully infiltrated the church. It is in small group environments, not Sunday services, that people can deepen relationships, share their joys and sorrows and ask those questions that they cannot ask on a Sunday morning. When your church has efficient and effective small group strategy, growth will come naturally. We have material to help you build a strong small groups system that is efficient and effective.
