Church Vibrancy works with members of local churches who want to see their church grow.  Through a process called Roads to Vibrancy,  churches receive evaluation, development of a plan, and implementation of the next steps which include providing resources, offering support and coaching to pastors and leaders of the church.

There are three ways to get started.  First, you can discuss your interest in Church Vibrancy with your pastor and contact Church Vibrancy Associate Director Gary Step to get started.

Second, take the Quick Insight Survey below.  Your results will be sent to Gary and he or a team member will contact you with next steps.  Or third,  click on the red toolbox (left) to look through our many resources and investigate areas of interest.  You will want to contact Gary following this search.

After your Quick Insight Survey, or talking with Gary, you will be guided to a series of workshops on church vibrancy, through our learning lab, and/or receive coaching.  

You can learn more at the bottom of this page about the next steps.

STEP 1: Tell us about your church

Before you take the Quick Insight Survey first have an open and honest discussion with your church Leadership Team. Please submit only one survey per church. The submitted form will automatically be sent to the Roads to Vibrancy Coordinator. Answering these questions will assess your path on the Road to Vibrancy. From there you will be contacted to discuss the next steps.
