Church Planters Assessment (GHC)

Last week, Erica, Josiah and Myself went to a Church Planters Assessment in Elk Grove, Ca at Discovery Church. The organization that hosted the event is Growing Healthy Churches. It was an intense 4 days of looking “under every rock” and a bit like The Apprentice for church planting. We gained some great insight into ourselves, our scars and our future. During the assessment we were split into two groups – East Coast and West Coast. The West Coast group was given the charge of putting together a proposal, plan, vision, strategy for planting 5 churches in 7 years starting in Elk Grove, Ca. Here’s a little video we created for our imaginary church plant, Refresh Church. (Actual footage taken in Elk Grove) Enjoy..

At the end of our time together we, the observers and assessors, sit down with the candidate and spouse to discuss our findings. We offering one of three suggestions. Red Light (don’t do it), Yellow Light (slow down) and Green Light (go). (See what Micah had to say about the event here.) […]
