Welcome!Resources − Health-checks

Health-checks

There are currently two detailed tools: the Church Health Review and, for mission agencies, the Christian Effectiveness Model.

The Church Health Review was extensively revised in 2014 and is now presented in a new, simpler format with all the questions recast. See HC4 and HC5 in the index below.

The Christian Effectiveness Model was similarly and thoroughly revised over the summer of 2015 and from October is now presented in a similar format. See HC6 and HC7 in the index below.

The items here are in PDF. Download the Adobe Acrobat Reader if you do not already have it.

Resources on this site are classified under six filing categories: Leadership, Management, Structures, Planning, Communication, Administration.

Ask to come on my bimonthly e-letter mailing list to inform you of new resources as I add them to the site. This link also gives you access to my data privacy notice.

Click on any title in the list below to go to the item in question. Note that there is no HC3.

Quote:

It was a great day last Wednesday and I much appreciated all that you put in to make it such a fascinating day. I know that we all enjoyed it too, as well as giving us a lot of food for thought. It is spurring us on to make some of the ideas that we thought about come to fruition.
