Taking the assessment is an opportunity for your congregation to see where you are now and to identify next steps for moving forward, joining in God’s mission.

A congregation that is committed to growing can use LEAD’s online Congregational Assessment to:

  • Find its place on the leadership landscape
  • Establish a baseline for the four growth indicators which are vital behaviors for growing congregations
  • Build on its strengths to respond to God’s call within your congregation and your neighborhood

The assessment includes two parts:

  • Part 1: Basic demographic information about the person completing the assessment.
  • Part 2: 20 statements about the congregation. Participants are asked to choose the response that they think best describes the congregation.

Ultimately the assessment can shape a path for growth. This path may include training, coaching, reading, listening in the community, or another “next step.”

What’s included?

The full congregational assessment package costs $200 and includes:

Once your congregation has registered and the pastor or council president has completed the Overview, you will receive a password for participants to take the Congregational Assessment.
