A pastor wanting an accurate assessment of the local church's current strengths and challenges

During our consultation, we discovered we were uneasy about the future. In the pre-visit inventory, I’m sure my answers about vision for the future seems vague. Likewise during the interviews with members of the congregation, the people seemed uneasy or worried that we might leave. Thank you for helping us see that this was a church with a wonderful future. We were so battle weary from our first years of existence we had lost her vision. Paraclete helped us move forward with renewed confidence.

As a part of our on-site visit, Pastor Benson provided a deacon retreat. During the tree he was able to encourage our deacons with ways that I can better demonstrate their commitment to their pastors. The church had allowed our entire pastoral staff to four will be home with the church could afford to pay them. My wife and I hadn’t been on a real vacation in over a decade. The pastoral staff was headed for serious burn out in a church that had ample history and resources to do better. The coaching week not only resulted in renewed vision and strategy for me, but also in pay raises and renewed commitment by the leader ship to care for the pastoral staff. As a bonus, my wife and I were provided some much-needed vacation time.
