The Benefits of Coaching

5/7/2018
More
In this episode we focus on how churches that take the REVEAL survey can benefit from engaging with a coach to help them plan and implement changes based on their results. We talk with one of REVEAL’s coaching partners, an organization called Ascending Leaders, to learn about their process in guiding church leaders to understand their survey results and act on them to become more effective at making disciples of Christ.

Leading Change in Troubled and Introverted Churches

4/23/2018
More
In this episode we interview Keith Doornbus, one of our first REVEAL clients in 2008 when he was pastor of Providence Church in Holland, Michigan. Providence took the REVEAL survey three times, improving from Troubled to Average. Keith shares his perspective on using REVEAL to turnaround Troubled and Introverted churches, both as a pastor who used REVEAL to understand his own congregation and as the coach for many pastors in the Christian Reformed Church who have taken the...

The Troubled Church

4/9/2018
More
This episode introduces you to the Troubled Church, an archetype that accounts for 14 percent of the churches in the REVEAL database. The Troubled Church is one in which congregants are both spiritually immature and unhappy with their church. This dual challenge makes turning around a Troubled Church difficult, but not impossible. In fact, 80 percent of the Troubled Churches that have taken the REVEAL survey more than once have changed archetypes. Download Notes

The Complacent Church

3/26/2018
More
This episode introduces you to the Complacent Church, which is the one of the largest of the eight archetypes we described in Episode 10. Complacent Churches account for 17 percent of the churches in our database. The Complacent Church is filled with people who are happy with their church, their pastor, and their busy, active lives. But they’re going through the motions—unaware that they are on a journey to nowhere, missing out on the central purpose of being a Christian, which is to grow...

The Extroverted Church

2/19/2018
More
In this episode, we talk about the factors that set the Extroverted Church apart and then use the stories of a few Extroverted Churches to give you some practical insights. The Extroverted Church is just what the name implies—it’s a church that is “turned outward.” It’s friendly; it likes to meet new people. It is also highly engaged in serving its community. However, Extroverted church congregants are weak in their core Christian beliefs and don’t engage very frequently in personal...

The Introverted Church

1/22/2018
More
In this episode, we discussed the characteristics of the churches in the Introverted Church archetype, which compromise 17% of churches in our database, making it is one of the largest archetypes. As the name suggests, churches in this archetype tend to be inwardly focused. However, their congregants have strong beliefs in core Christian doctrines and are dedicated to their personal spiritual practices. These strengths provide a solid base for Introverted Churches to implement changes that...
