I’ve been coaching pastors for almost ten years. In addition to being a coach, I also serve churches as a consultant.
A consultant functions much like a coach to the church. Whereas a coach relates to an individual, the consultant relates to the church board, governing body, or leadership team.
A consultant comes in when a church feels stuck or in need of a fresh set of eyes to help them walk through a challenging situation. The consultant is someone objective and experienced.
A consultant provides honest feedback, practical ideas, and resources that are tailor-made for the current size and specific challenges of the church.
20 Reasons why a church might benefit from a consultant:
When they feel stuck.
When considering a new direction.
When they need a fresh set of eyes.
When considering their first hire.
When considering their first church plant.
If momentum or morale is bad.
When they are in decline.
When they have plateaued.
When nothing seems to be working.
If there is a need for someone to mediate conflict.
When bringing in a new pastor.
When determining the pay-package for their pastor or
If they are a new church plant.
When faced with a crisis.
When wanting to do a church diagnostic test.
When considering getting their first building.
When the leadership feels they’re running out of ideas.
When preparing to set new goals for the up-coming year.
When faced with the likelyhood of needing to fire or lay-off someone.
When they have a mutiny on their hands.
You might be thinking, “Oh, we could never afford a church consultant.” Yes you can! Because my consulting happens over the phone via conference calls, the cost is kept to a minimum. Even the smallest of churches can now afford a church consultant.
