What Is IMPACT?

Designed for small membership churches, Impact guides your church in learning ways to thrive in your tomorrows instead of hoping to just survive them. This process includes ongoing practices such as strategic, fruitful goal setting, team ministry, sharing and implementing new directions for your church.


IMPACT is designed for church transformation by

  • Building on the traditions of the past;
  • Understanding the present culture; and
  • Preparing for future ministry.


Nine sessions, meeting every other month, will walk you through the following topics:

  • Session 1: Sept. 28, 2019 - The Important Role of the Small Membership Church
  • Session 2: The Value of Vision
  • Session 3: Simplified Leadership Structure for Accountable Ministry
  • Session 4: Controlling Maintenance, Capturing Mission
  • Session 5: Intentional Faith Development
  • Session 6: Moving from Encounters to Relationships
  • Session 7: Moving Outside the Walls: Reaching the Next Generation
  • Session 8: The Worship Experience
  • Session 9: Working Through Church Change

Facilitated by experienced coaches, each session will provide your church with a ministry action plan (MAP) that will give you concrete steps strategically designed to move you forward as a congregation and community of faith. You will be asked to report back on your results at the following sessions.

Churches are like people, they're born...they grow up...and then they die. The difference is that people only get one life to live, as taught in the Christian faith.


Churches can have multiple life cycles. 


If a church has been around more than 20 years, the chances are that it has already started several new life cycles.

IMPACT Can Change the Way You Think About Your Church

Churches that have a vision; a clear, concise and concrete purpose and pathway that God has given to them and they have owned, can survivie the ending of a life cycle and embrace a new life cycle, understanding that it is the entrhance into new forms and shapes of ministry that reach out into their community and region and give meaning and value to those they desire to reach, serve and attract.
