Health Check

Below are some diagnostic tools and exercises to help you get a clearer picture of health at your church. 

A diagnostic tool is a resource designed to shine a ‘spot light’ on an important characteristic of your person, group or Church i.e. Your Conflict Management Style; The markers of Congregational Health or an aspect of Church life. An exercise flows out of the tool and can enable you to understand more about yourself, your group or you church and so be better able to identify areas that need addressing personally or corporately.

 

If you would like a facilitator to come and provide a health check-up at your church, please use the contact form
