Serving Churches, Part 2

In this blog article, I share one of several approaches that are utilized by the Sunday School and Discipleship Team to Make Christ Known by Serving Churches. I would love for you to respond with your comments and thoughts on the effectiveness of this strategy in today’s climate. You can e-mail me at or call me at 1-800-558-2090, ext. 2048.

Many churches are still seeking experts to serve as speakers, conference leaders and consultants. One Day Consultations are available to churches of all sizes at no cost to TBC churches. One-Day Growth Consultations are customized to help your individual church evaluate the performance of your Sunday School, Discipleship, or Age Group Ministries over time and develop action plans that promote the healthy growth of your church.

One Day Consultations are a combination of two phases. In Phase One, the consultant meets with the pastor, Sunday School Director and other key leaders. The consultant utilizes information from the Annual Church Profile and reports submitted by the participating congregation prior to the day of the consultant. The consultant dialogues with the church leaders concerning the strengths and weaknesses of the church and the dreams and concerns of the leaders. Since space is a major obstacle to many churches, a thorough space walk of facilities is included. The Sunday School Growth and Evaluation plan is completed to evaluate the ministries of your church.

Following phase one, the consultant will prepare recommendations, reports, and a presentation on principles to share during phase two. In Phase Two, a church conference is held to discuss the findings and recommendations of the consultant. The pastor determines the audience. The audience seems to vary by church size. The smaller membership churches usually invite the entire congregation and often Phase Two is conducted on a Sunday evening or Wednesday evening. The medium to larger congregations usually invite Sunday School leaders and/or reports or given to the staff.

The strength of One Day Consultations is they are always customized.One Day Consultations provide the pastor and church with information and strategies to consider. One Day Consultations can also be the front door for other opportunities to serve the church, such as conferences and coaching.
