Consulting

Consulting

All leaders eventually discover the great benefit that comes by bringing in “outside eyes.”

Sometimes we find that the issues holding us back in ministry are obvious to others while they remain oblivious to us. Our consultants help you evaluate your blind spots and address problem areas in your day-to-day operations. Especially now as we navigate the impact of the global pandemic.

“Every church moved forward by 7 years in a period of 7 weeks! The way your specific ministry operated before the shutdown was accelerated by the shutdown.”  – Dale Sellers

Effective planning today guides our effectiveness tomorrow.

You Have the Vision, We Provide the Clarity

Our overall goal for Consulting at 95Network is to help your ministry gain clarity in your mission and vision so that one day you can pass a healthy and vibrant ministry to the next generation.

From our very own VisionDay to our partner relationships with the folks like Unstuck Group and Malphurs Group, we are committed to helping you develop deeper, strategic planning processes that provide a structured path for church growth.

We’ve found that taking the time to honestly evaluate your progress in fulfilling the mission and vision of your ministry helps you move closer towards accomplishing your plan instead of just staying busy. It’s paramount that you bring in a non-biased facilitator in order to keep you from slipping into being an “insider focused” ministry. This quote by Micheal Moore really sums it up:

If you want to know what water tastes like then don’t ask a fish!” – Michael Moore

I thought Dale Sellers was excellent. I didn’t know there were people (consultants) that specialized in small town churches. These are exciting times that we’re living in. I can’t wait to see what God is going to do through all of us. What a fantastic day!  Thank you for bringing us all together and helping us to vision the future. God is on the move…

VisionDay

Has your ministry stalled out? Maybe you need a friend to help you gain clarity but are not sure where to start?

Consider VisionDay.

Clarify your vision. Create a plan. Take one day to ensure a stronger future for your ministry.

Every church needs a vision for the future. You need to know where you’re headed and what the plan is for getting there. In small and midsize churches, however, the everyday responsibilities of ministry can easily distract from important tasks like vision-casting, planning, and even leading.

Our VisionDay event is a deep dive into the mission and health of your church with a 95Network coach committed to your success and ready for a lifetime partnership. Even after the VisionDay event ends, your team and your coach keep in contact and stay accountable to your plan, giving you the structure and focus you need to keep your vision at the forefront of your ministry.

Why VisionDay?

VisionDay is not just an event. The heart behind it is to connect your church with someone who cares deeply about your ministry. Here are 5 reasons VisionDay is valuable:

  • Gain perspective. During VisionDay, you’ll have the opportunity to gain perspective on each aspect of your ministry. Where are you at now? How did you get there?
  • Develop a strategic plan. Why do you exist at this time in your town? VisionDay will guide you through the process of understanding who you are and where you’re headed.
  • Participate in the process. VisionDay is unique because our team will facilitate a conversation among your team without “consulting” about everything you should do.
  • Build a connection. The goal of VisionDay is to form a life-long partnership between your church and your certified coach.
  • Remain accountable. Once the plan is in place, a process of accountability will be put in place to follow-up and celebrate the small successes that come in the days ahead.
Signs a Church Could Benefit From VisionDay
  • You tend to be insider-focused in the majority of your ministries.
  • You are more content to talk about what God did in the past than to be excited about the potential of what God is doing in the church today.
  • The congregation has a strong opposition to change. They may often use the phrase, “We have always done it this way!”
  • The quality of your website and social media presence is either poor or non-existent.
  • The church doesn’t have a vibrant and intentional focus of reaching children through a well-designed children’s ministry.
  • The culture of the people who live within a few miles of the church has changed, but the church hasn’t made a shift in ministry focus to connect with them.
  • Your leadership team has never been through any form of strategic planning.

Pastor Mark Pritchard shares the positive results of going through the strategic planning process. Be sure to check out his podcast entitled: “Rediscovering Your Purpose: How Church at the Gates Gained Clarity.”
