TWO WAYS TO DO IT


Healthy Church DNA® is implemented in two different ways:


1. Be trained to facilitate the Healthy Church DNA® process yourself.


or


2. Have a Healthy Church DNA® consultant facilitate the process at your church.


•••••


1. If you choose to be trained to facilitate the Healthy Church DNA® process yourself (#1), you will need to participate in a training event.


Typically, a judicatory or other regional denominational office sponsors a four-day training event for clergy and lay leaders. After the event, the trainees meet in groups on a regular basis as they prepare for and facilitate the Healthy Church DNA® process in their own or in each other’s churches.


The trainers from the four-day training event provide follow-up face-to-face or electronic coaching and support for the small groups throughout the process.



WHO SHOULD ATTEND?


Clergy, church staff and lay leaders from the congregations that are participating in the training.


Being trained to do your own facilitating works best when:

•You have basic facilitation (not the same as leadership) skills.

•You have had experience in planning processes.

•You are seen as a neutral person by the members of the church; without a particular outcome to champion.

•You have time to prepare and facilitate.

•The congregation is generally a healthy one and not in serious conflict.



WHAT WILL THE TRAINING COVER?


The Healthy Church DNA® Facilitator Training will equip you to:

•  Understand and utilize the appreciative and strength-based approach to change processes.

Determine if Healthy Church DNA® will be the most useful approach for your congregation.

  1. Organize a leadership group in your church that will assist the congregation in:                           

  2. A Scriptural study of the mission of the church

  3. A congregational study (including the Healthy Church DNA Congregational Strength Survey™) and

  4. A community study.

Develop and present a Congregational Report (based on the congregational and community studies) to the congregation.

Facilitate a congregation-wide dialogue and visioning process to discern God’s calling for your church.

Facilitate a congregational assessment of strengths and assets to drive fulfillment of your congregation’s mission and vision.

Facilitate the development of a strategic action plan.

Provide follow-up support.


The process is a serious, transformational process.  From Facilitator Training to completion of the process in the church, typically takes most of a year.


HOW WILL YOU BENEFIT?


Healthy Church DNA® provides a concrete, practical process for your congregation to discern God’s calling and allow the Spirit to open the hearts of the members to a clear vision of what God intends them to be and do.


This compelling, collaboratively-developed vision will draw your congregation into action. The church will be organized to be an enabling, permission-giving community of faith with each person using all his or her gifts in personal and corporate discipleship. 


Healthy Church DNA® is not a one-time event. It is a transformational process that can change the way your congregation talks, lives, and serves. Healthy Church DNA® will engage your congregation in a new way of doing God’s work. It is grounded in the theology of the church, mission, vision, service, and stewardship of God’s gifts. 


Powerful, innovative change models from organizational development, community development, and psychology inform Healthy Church DNA®. Over the last ten to fifteen years, a growing number of leaders in the academic, health, and business communities have begun assessing individuals and organizations in terms of their strengths and resources instead of their weaknesses and deficits. Interventions are increasingly designed to build on what is working instead of fixing gaps. These change models include Appreciative Inquiry, Preferred Futuring, The Solutions Focus, Asset-based Community development, and other strength-based approaches.


Healthy Church DNA® utilizes the power of these organizational change models in the service of a missional congregational renewal process.
