Becoming A Flourishing Church

Churches often overly focus on their need to become vibrant congregations, yet neglect their overall vitality of the congregation and the personal discipleship of their leaders. The premise of the Flourish resource materials is that flourishing churches are led by flourishing leaders who are flourishing disciples.

Becoming a Flourishing Church focuses on discipleship, diagnosis, and discernment. It helps elders and other church leaders to first focus on their individual growth as disciples. This resource also teaches the 6 Flourishing Church Measures and asks leaders to identify where their own church’s strengths and weaknesses are found. We encourage our churches to engage with this resource on an annual basis as part of a wider church health assessment process.

An appointed liaison can be available to help leadership teams uncover how God is calling them to specifically grow and move forward in ministry. This will help churches to refocus their energy, health, and vitality. Together, they will write a simple plan for Becoming a Flourishing Church.

Our hope is that this resource will give you greater direction, clarity, and purpose in your role as leaders in your church. It is our prayer that as you meaningfully engage with the material, you will experience growth in your own discipleship and spiritual maturity, in addition to having a greater sense of your individual call and role as a leader. As you engage with this material collectively, as a body of believers, we pray you will have a deeper understanding of how your church can grow and move forward.
