Churches who want to become healthier often need outside eyes and a fresh perspective. Today, we discuss how consultants (interventionists) can help.
Some highlights from today’s episode include:
Interventions need to come earlier rather than later because it’s often too late if you wait.
Church consultants aren’t just for dying churches.
The number one reason churches bring in a consultant for advice is for facility issues.
Churches are no longer homogeneous and that makes it more difficult to plug and play programs.
The seven reasons we discuss are:
1. Sharper declines
2. Stigma is not as great
3. The issue of crossroads
4. The multisite phenomenon
5. Help in interim periods
6. Word of mouth success
7. The decline of many denominations
