Discover how the

new, innovative

7-step process in

Healthy Church DNA®

can

transform your congregation and unite your people behind a compelling, Spirit-driven mission and vision.















TRANSFORMATIONAL OUTCOMES


Healthy Church DNA® is designed to be a transformational process. The outcome is a community of faith that has:


  1. A clear, powerful sense of congregational mission

  2. A prayerfully discerned, shared, compelling image of the future

  3. A broadly-owned action plan to support its mission and vision

  4. A more passionate use of personal and corporate God-given gifts

  5. Increased collaboration in ministries

  6. More constructive, positive discourse about the church

  7. A cyclical, ongoing process of assessment, spiritual growth, discernment of God’s will, and strategic planning

  8. More effective ways to work with resistance, transitions, conflict, and stages in the church life cycle


A COMPREHENSIVE, TRANSFORMATIONAL PROCESS


These outcomes require a substantial effort to facilitate the work of the Spirit in the hearts of the members and staff. No single event, held in the midst of many other church events or activities, will produce these outcomes.


The Healthy Church DNA® process typically takes most of a year and includes a comprehensive set of activities. Most of the events involve the entire congregation, not just a small group of leaders.


STEPS IN THE PROCESS


The process begins with an initial consultation and establishment of a Coordinating Team. The steps in the process then follow the acronym DISCERNPlus®:


  1. Define the Present

  2. Imagine the Future

  3. Size Up Our Gifts

  4. Create a Plan

  5. Execute the Plan

  6. Reflect on Results

  7. Nurture What’s Working, Negotiate What’s Not


These steps involve:


  1. Intensive, congregation-wide scriptural study of the mission of the church

  2. Gathering congregational history, trends, and current status

  3. Gathering extensive community demographics and information

  4. Administering Healthy Church DNA® Strength Inventories to the entire congregation and staff

  5. Presenting a summary report of congregation and community information to the congregation

  6. Conducting a deeply-moving, congregation-wide, person-to-person Appreciative Dialogue

  7. Identifying Priority Ministries, Goals, and an Action Plan with congregation-wide participation

  8. Establishing a process and people to implement the Action Plan, recognize progress, revise as necessary, and arrange for the next cycle of DISCERNPlus®.


SPIRIT OF THE PROCESS


Healthy Church DNA® is missional, hope-filled, highly participatory, and focused on the future and possibilities for the congregation. It is an effective, practical process that puts the power of strength-based organizational change models in the service of Spirit-driven church renewal. Healthy Church DNA® is a comprehensive, ongoing transformational process that can change the way your congregation thinks, lives, and serves.
