Tools for Revitalization: Church Systems Analysis

I like this line of thinking. Just like the human body stays healthy because of healthy systems – respiratory, nervous, digestive, skeletal, etc., a church needs healthy systems to stay healthy. Here’s an Assessment tool we’ve developed to help a church leadership team assess its systems. Get Nelson Searcy’s book on systems hereChurchSystemsAnalysis

  1. Lane, What are the definable metrics by which you determine where you are on the scale? I guess I have to read the book huh? The chart makes it look completely subjective.

  2. Your right, it is pretty subjective by design. It’s done in a group discussion with a core leadership team, church council, etc. The objective data would be a 30 year analysis of the church’s attendance, giving, baptisms, etc. & a demographic profile of the community. These would be shared before this exercise. As a strategist or group leader, during this exercise I’m listening, writing down exact quotes said about the church by the leadership, & asking them to score themselves as a group.

    Also, one church in our area is taking one of these each Wednesday evening, teaching on it & then asking the group in attendance to grade themselves.

    It’s a simple self assessment tool.
