In order to thrive and be in good health, every ministry needs to be aware of their vital signs. Vitality determines quality of life. When it comes to Ministry Vitality, MOBILIZE can observe a church environment for the "vital signs" that indicate those things that are essential & healthy. Here are a few of the ways that happens:
- Transform One - using the "I" - "We" - "They" - "All of Us" approach to healthy self-awareness as individuals and as a church. Preparing for and applying the principles of "health" with the language of Natural Church Development. (READ: "TRANSFORM ONE: One Person, One Church, One Community Utilizing the 'I - WE - THEY - ALL OF US' Process" By Rev. Dr. G. Emery Hurd)
Natural Church Development (NCD) - the BEST language to describe what HEALTHY looks like in a church environment, in every culture and context! Based on highly reliable and valid scientific research, the 8 "Quality Characteristics" measured by the NCD tools help us not only understand what "healthy" looks like, but how our congregation actually measures up. For an overview of the NCD principles, Quality Characteristics and process, CLICK HERE.
