Church Health

It is our belief that the Church is God’s primary instrument for fulfilling His mission or purpose in the world today. The Church brings glory to God as it incarnates its identity as the Body of Christ by making more disciples and fulfilling its Kingdom mandate of loving God and loving others.

Church Health, like your physical health, is essential for success and longevity.  When a church is healthy, ministry vitality is attractional and efficacious. But the church as a body is prone to disease from within and without.

The Venture Church Network Northeast seeks to assist churches in establishing and maintaining ministry vitality. We have multiple resources to assess, develop and maintain congregational health. Please contact our director for assistance.

Leadership Learning Communities

As the name implies these groups focus on leadership development. Leadership as a cultural component is a part of every church. Whether they are called the pastor, elders, deacons or something else, pastors must help shape a church’s leadership culture to best support the mission of the church.
President Harry Truman once stated, ‚ÄúNot all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.‚ÄĚ It follows that leaders are also¬†life-long learners. Learning from effective leaders of religious and non-religious background helps pastors grasp the importance of their ongoing personal development.
As ‚ÄúIron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.‚ÄĚ Proverbs 27:17 (ESV) Learning in community provides support, insight, and accountability. For more information for a Learning Community near you, click here.
